Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.

Try and drag and drop from your music folder to the media folder on the player make sure usb mode is msc this will show you all the folders Use your windows explorer for the transfer... much easier...If you don't have copies of your music copy to a folder on the computer2.gif first

My Sansa e260 player works fine, plays my music and everything, but I have a problem with adding/deleting music. When I connected it to my computer, it did not recognize the player and it did not show up...


MSC will allow you to see the expansion card ( 2Gig E200 series 4gig Fuze) mtp won't.....MTP shows you your music folder in the media folder thats where you put your music plus expansion..... make sure your usb 2.0 driver is installed..Syncing to wmplayer puts music in the mtp music folder. change usb modes again and use the explorer to see the sansa msc lets you sync any Q/A IM or email me @ Schmead01@yahoo.com

Can't delete songs from my SanDisk Sansa e260 (4 GB) MP3 Player


Reformat the player and start from scratch.

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
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/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Re-formatted Sansa e260 - still 1.4 GB (out of 4GB) tied up


I'm going to try this suggestion from Sansa:

Thanks again for calling SanDisk Technical Support. It is our goal to make sure you have all the resources you need to get the most from your product.

There may still be music hidden in Rhapsody mode that you can't see.

To find this music go to the Tools menu in the upper left corner from any open folder in Windows XP.

Choose the last option, Folder Options

A dialog box will appear, choose the View tab and you will see a list of options.

Find and select the Show hidden files and folders option. Then click Apply, then OK in that order.

This will make any hidden files on your computer visible.

Now open My Computer and double click on the mp3 player to open it.
You should see a few grayed out folders. We will be looking for MUSIC and SYSTEM.

Open the Music folder to see if there are files there to delete.

Open the SYSTEM folder and look for a second Music folder deleting this folder will free A LOT of space..all of the pre-loaded music for Rhapsody channels.

Disconnect the device and check the free space.

How to upload files from MP3 player to computer


Hi. To upload files from your E260 to your computer, you can do the following: Step 1: Browse the player on your Windows Explorer. Under "Windows Explorer", your player should appear as an icon under "Portable Audio Devices" or as a "Removable Drive" with a corresponding drive letter. This really depends on the mode your player is in -- MTP or MSC mode. Step 2: Set your Windows Explorer to "Show Hidden Files or Folders". The folder containing your music files on the player is a hidden folder, so make sure you go to "Tools" menu on your Explorer window, then select "Folder Options", then select the "View" tab, then enable the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button Step 3: If your player is set to MTP, you would find the sub folder called "PPI NAND". Open this folder and you would see a list of sub-folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files If your player is set to MSC, open the drive letter corresponding to your E260 and you see a list of folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files. Step 4: Select the music files you want and copy them to your local hard drive I hope the info helps.
