I dont have sandisk driver for my sansa E260..i cant transfer songs..


Sansa Not Recognized: Try connecting it to the back of your computer or another computer the back straight to the motherboard this should be USB 2.0 and see if it will recognize it as sansa or Drive/removable drive. if it does then download the sansa update software and install it. Make sure you disconnect the sansa and connect it when asked. This will update your sansas firmware and add the Usb Mode. Try to connect it to your computer at home it should recognize.... link for update software (http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe) download to a flash drive much easier. Make sure USB mode is MSC
Recovery Mode may also allow your computer to recognize the sansa
lock your sansa hold in the rec key on the left at the same time push the menu/power button this will take you to recovery mode then connect to the computer Start the update software when finished disconnect.... Sync to upload songs to the sansa......Hope this works

It is getting stuck while refreshing the database.


Depending on the amount of the data or music files you have on your device, "Refreshing Database" may take a while to finish. But if you feel it's frozen you may try the following steps:
Reset the device 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player. NOTE: Resetting will turn the player off while it is frozen.
Delete recently loaded files 1. Connect the device to the PC in MSC mode using force MSC. 2. Locate and delete recently added files. 3. Disconnect the device from the PC.
If this resolves the issue, proceed to STEP 3. Otherwise, format the device, update to the latest firmware, and reload the songs to the device.
Update to the latest firmware You may need to upload the firmware manually, there are instructions on the links below on how to manually update your firmware Sansa c200 series firmware update Sansa Clip firmware update Sansa e200 series firmware update Sansa Fuze firmware update Sansa View firmware update

Solution 2: RELOAD AND UPDATE THE LATEST FIRMWARE
All data on the player will be erased when updating firmware !
Go to next sites, seeing how to do a firmware update:

How to put the player in MSC mode, see the information about the
Fuze player:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61/kw/blue%20ring/r_id/101834
Putting Sansa Fuze in MSC mode:
1. Turn device OFF.
2. Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing).
3. Press and hold the left button ( |<< ) while connecting the device to the PC.

2. Continuing with the firmware reinstallation you can choose either automatic or manual update, see:

Automatic update using the Sansa Updater.

follow the instructions below to get the sansa firmware updater to make sure that the firmware for your payer is updated automatically:
METHOD 1 - Download and manually update the Sansa m200 

NOTE: The manual update does NOT support firmware version 4.X.XXX. Refer to METHOD 2 if the firmware on your Sansa m200 is either 4.X.XXX.

Frozen screen


I was skeptical that this could work, but it has worked for me. Hopefully you will have success with it too. On the internet, I searched for this issue and one person said to put the battery in backwards, press the power button, put the battery in right, and then turn on the c140. I still had to format the unit in MSC mode, but it appears to be working correctly now.
