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
Not exaclty, deleting songs has to be done when recharging through the usb port on your pc or laptop.
Once connected you should see and icon or folder(Sansa E260) pop up on you desktop representing your player which can be opened and contains your playlists, individual songs, and any media you may have transferred.
Within this window you can move songs, edit lists and if necessary delete any unwanted items.
Playlists can be made on the fly, but you have to play each song you
want to add to the playlist in order to bring up the option.
Basically WinAmp is the way to go [here's how:]
First, start up Winamp and add your songs to its library. You've probably already done this.
Next, create a playlist. Call it "Exercise" for this example. Drag a few songs from your library to it.
Next, connect your e260 in MTP mode. It should show up after a few
seconds under the "Portables" item in the Winamp hierarchy. Right-click
the Exercise playlist and send to your e260. Wait for the playlist and
songs to sync, then disconnect your device.
(Optional) go to your e260's playlists and confirm that Exercise
didn't show up. If you do see it, then you probably have a future
version of the firmware that doesn't have this problem.
Here's the kick. Turn the e260 off by holding down the power button
for a couple seconds until you see "GOODBYE." Release the power button.
Switch the lock slider to the locked position. Press the power button
and keep holding it down. The blue wheel light will come on, and then
you'll see the SanDisk logo. Then the screen will go black and you'll
Key LOCKED System shutdown
Once you see that message, you can let go of the power button. Flip
the lock slider to the unlocked position and press the power button
again. Now navigate back to your playlists and you should see Exercise!
Fortunately you don't have to go through these hoops with every
sync. You can freely edit existing playlists and add/remove music;
these actions appear to work fine. This hack is necessary only to get
new playlists to show up.
