My Sansa e260 Mp3 player isn't recognised by Windows and will not show up as connected.

e200 is the generic name for the entire e-series including the e250, e260, and e280. The only difference between the models is the amount of internal memory. The e200 driver is used for all models in the series, and the e200 manual likewise covers the series.

Problem with sansa e260

It is because the e260 is not in MSC mode (where it looks to the computer like a hard disk).

Try this, this will temporarily set your e260 into MSC mode. Then download and install the firmware as per instructions (or use the Sansa Updater software also available on the Sansa site). This will then let you see a menu item to switch to MSC mode.

MSC mode instructions:
  1. Turn on the e200 v2
  2. Put the device in Hold (move Hold button until orange is showing)
  3. Press and hold the Left Button
  4. Plug the 30 pin connector into the device (be sure the USB is plugged into the computer)
  5. Wait for the e200 drive(s) to show up
  6. Follow instructions below and drag files to the e200 drive

Cant switch to MSC on sansa e260

Try this instead:
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:

Sansa Recovery Tool
PDF how to use recovery tool

Answer The power may be depleted fully or the Connect might be hung during boot. Charge the Connect for at least 20 minutes using the AC charger. If the Connect will not turn on after 20 minutes charging with the AC charger, you can then try using the Connect Recovery Tool.

The recovery tool will reformat and reload the latest firmware to the Connect. The tool and instructions are located here.

Note: Ensure the Connect is turned off by holding the power button 8-10 seconds before initiating the recovery sequence.

The e200 can operated under two different modes, MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) mode and MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode.

To see the MicroSD card as a Removable Disk, the e200 must be in MSC mode. The following screen shots show how the "My Computer" screen will look when the device is plugged in under each mode.

MTP Mode
MSC Mode

To change the mode from MTP to MSC go to the Main Menu of the e200.

If you're e200 is plugged into your computer, please unplug it first.

1) Scroll to the "Settings" > "USB Mode" > "MSC Mode" and push the select button.

2) Connect the e200 to the computer using the USB cable provided.

3) Go to "My Computer" and there will now be two Removable Disk drives similar to the MSC Mode image on top.

Can't connect!

Has to be Windows XP for either USB Mode but im not sure whether u can connect it to other computers under different versions of Windows or not and I know Apple computers dont work at all with the Sansa E200 series. Also connect ur Sansa to the rear USB inputs instead of the front inputs. Something that has to do with power distribution if none of these call their tech support they were very helpful with my issue.
