Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player
Hello, I have the e280, it works like a breeze and I haven't had a problem up until about 2 days ago.
I added a **** load of songs to the player, they show up in the files section (the one you get to through My Computer/Sansa/Music) and they're taking up the appropriate MB's (I still have 2 gigs of free space).
However, when I unplug the player, wait until its refreshed, and then search for the newly added songs, none of them show up. Even more troubling is that some songs that I've deleted are still showing on the player, in the "Unknown" section, when I try to play them they read "Bad Track" and skip to the next song (this I can live with, but its still wierd).
Also, there are times when I can't view my songs/videos/photos. I've isolated the problem as being that these all become "hidden" upon connecting them to the computer. I've corrected this, only to have it reset to "hidden" upon unplugging and plugging it back in. This is odd, but still I can live with it.
Just wondering if maybe this is at all related.
Basically I need the House of Sansa troubleshooting to look at all of these symptoms and give me a straight, albeit, condescending and thoroughly sarcastic answer.
Thanks in advance!
I experienced a similar problem caused by corrupt files saved on the internal memory of my e280.
(I could not delete/remove the files) I had to format the internal drive of the e280
and re-copy the files back on to the unit. Works great now. When formatting the device
use the command from windows. (ie right click on the internal memory icon and select format)
Note: Formatting will remove/delete all the files (eg music,photos..) from the e280 so make sure that
you have backups.
