My sansa e260 is displaying REFRESH DATABASE and the process continues so that no action can be performed.only a white light displays on the screen until the battery gets low.and a blue light displays on...

freezing at refresh database means there is a wrongly formatted or corrupt file tht you are attempting to put on your mp3 player. to fix this you simply delete whatever corrupted file it is. i, personally, had to go to settings on the mp3 player and at the bottom of the list is "format", i had to format which deletes all ur songs but fixes freezing problem. u only have to do this if you dont know what song is freezing it. if you do know, then you can go into your mp3 file folder under my computer( removable E:) and delete the song from there or you can delete it from your mp3 player via windows media player. to be ensure tht it never happens again you should just put each song on 1 at a time, disconnecting it after every 1, if it freezes again you know what song it is and you can simply delete it. i know this seems like it would take 4ever, but having to go back through and reformat every sinmgle time this happens would take even longer, so just stick with it. hope this helps

I think I deleted a vital system file or something.

this should give you the drivers for it, you can format your mp3 player by going into My Computer and right clicking on the mp3 player and just select format

Sansa e260 has no space left to write the database info. Vista and also Windows Media Player don't ''see'' any files. I can listen to all the music on the MP3 but I want to delete some and add others.

Same problem delete a couple of songs up to 6 mg or 10 whatever then allow to refresh then download your songs back in the music file. the sansa needs some memory to know it has the sdcard in it...

Go to my computer scroll to sansa and open the media folder and open each sub folder and delete manually then delete the folders themselfs then format a couple of times hope this works
Start over put new songs on it

Deleted songs

that's the problem with all MP3 players, when it's overcharged, it will corrupt the songs maybe because to malfuncion the system. The best solution is to redownload the songs that were lost OR if you have back up of those songs on your PC, much better..

trust me, I was experiencing on that before..

Refresh data base freezes

If your SanDisk is locking up try holding the power button down. It will force it to shut down. If you continue to get that error you probalby need to update/reload the firmware. Check out the website. Go to the music and video link and then select forums under support. If memory serves me correctly I had to download the file to my PC and then copy it to my Sandisk to get it to load. I lost all my songs but it fixed the problem.

Frozen on Refresh Database

Take out the four screws on the back and pop out the battery then put it back on. Make sure you synced the songs properly. Add to the problem how you added your songs and I might be able to help.
Good Luck
