Okay, recently I got my SanDisk Sansa E260 for x-mas, it started acting up when I got it.
*Doubled songs Problem:
After I found out how to fix my mp3 player after it froze, I addad a couple of songs to it, nad while my Windows Media player 10 synchronized those newly added songs it started to re-sync the old songs that were on there before. It is like 6 days later and I still can't figure out if it is the WMP or my mp3 player that is not funcioning correctly. But get this, everytime i plug up my mp3 player to the USB and open up the WMP, the songs that are doubled(which are basically the songs straight off of cds and copied to the library) don't even show up, PERIOD! I am not even gonna start on how my RealPlayer pissed me off.
How do you set up, well, save playlists on this thing? Why does the 'Go-List' on stay together until you turn the mp3 player off?

Reset All NOTE: THIS IS AN ADVANCED OPERATION AND RESTORES ALL SETTINGS TO THE FACTORY DEFAULTS. NORMAL USERS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED TO PERFORM THIS OPERATION! If your device freezes up press the Menu button and hold for 15 seconds. This is like a power down of the device. Once you perform the reset, the adjustments you made during last operation will be gone.....look and see if there is a boot file in one of the folder on the player. If there is delete this file....This file gets put on the player when booting your computer with the player connected.....Download Update (http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe)
I had to use my labtop to recognize 2.0usb port Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders them selfs then format a couple of times hope this works One of the cd's I put on my sansa had some file in it that made my tracks bad and was hard to delete follow above it worked
To reset your device to the original setting...go under settings in the main menu, select reset and hit yes...
Should you have any questions..let me know.. P.S.Please rate accordingly... Thank You Computerrep
When it comes to deleting songs, I went on the program I use to get my music on and clicked on the sansa 260 and found my playlist. I bet if you connect your sansa and look around that program, you could probably find your playlist and start deleting.
You can manually delete the music thru My Computer. Just click on the device name, and open the Music folder.
If you dont have a Music folder, you need to enable hidden files and folders on your computer.
Best of Luck.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
