    when I plug it into the USB and computer it does the same thing, keeps refreshing, and it doesn't look as if it is charging, it just says connecting. I thought the first time I charged it, it actually said it was charging but I'm not certain because I've only had it two days.

    Out of the box, my e260 has low battery, so I try to charge it and it alternates between "writing", then "refresh database." Any suggestions would be aprreciated.

    Not only does it keep refreshing all the time, even in the middle of a song sometimes, it is also repeating all my songs.

    Repeat is not switched on.

From Stollydog - I had put in an SanDisk 8GB as I have heaps of CD's. I removed this and then went back to factory settings. I reloaded my music from the computer and now it thankfully has stopped refreshing and repeating songs. My partner has an identical SanDisk with an 8GB card extra in it but isn't causing this problem. Maybe this can help at least solve some of the problem though my 4GB is just about full now.

Eclipse player

Attach to a computer and copy the data from the player to a new file on the desktop (call it Eclipse). Then put a Memory card into a Memory Card device and transfer the data back to the Card. You may have a Memory card reader in your computer or get a USB Reader, they are a few dollars.

Nokia E50 cellphone will not boot up. Stuck on Nokia Logo. Is there any way to retrieve my contacts from the phone memory? Many thanks.

Seems like your phone is now corrupt and you cannot retrieve any data stored in it , the only solution is to hard reset it , as you cannot start the phone , you have to go for key based hard reset by pressing the Green button , '#' and '3' key and start the phone .

All data will be lost but you will have your phone back , I recommend using OVI Sync to backup your contacts or on your PC via Nokia Suite backup

Cannot get my computer to recognize my sansa e260 player

I cannot get my desktop to find a driver for the e260, but if you use the SD microdisk you can load stuff to the microdisk if you have a card reader. You need to buy the full size SD card with the micro SD attached. Then sync the stuff you want to load and when you boot up your player, it will refresh the data base and you can play the stuff on your card. Seems a shame to waste 4 gigs of hard drive on the player, but I do not know anyone who has found a driver for the e260 that works with XP service pack 2. If you do please send me an email me.
