Ok so the only thing I can do with my mp3 is charge it and listen and look at everything thats already on it. My computer won't detect my player at all it will charge it but windows media wont open it its not in my computer nothing. I put the disk in and put the thing on my computer but it always says your player is not plugged in but it is. Its not just my computer its all computers I've tried my friends and stuff and it does the same thing. I can't return it cause I dont have a recipt. What do I do???

This is actually not a solution, but to let you know that my Sansa E260 is acting exactly the same. I called Sansa's support and we did a lot of things including updating the firmware and going into the Recovery Mode. Unfortunately, Sansa could not figure out a solution to my problem (computer does not recognize it). I have loaded videos, taped voice reminders, loaded MP3s on to the MicroSD, set up my radio stations, etc. Everything works, except now, I can't seem to get my computers (yes, plural) recognize this device. Sansa said that I should return it to the store and get it replaced while it is under warranty. Thanks. Manny

For my Sansa clip, if i put it on hold and press the center button as I plug it in, my computer will recognize it.

My songs wont add onto my sandisk sansa mp3 player


What format are the songs you're not able to hear? It's possible that the songs are not in a format the Sansa can play.

Also, you can navigate your Sansa like a removable drive. Try going to "My Computer" and looking to see what's actually on the drive.

My computer wont reconize my mp3 player


Down load the firmware on Sansa's website. I have a Sansa 250R and it wouldn't work with the new replacement usb (Griffin) cord I bought at Best Buy. So I bought a Sansa Fuze and the cord that came with it worked on the E250R. Huh? Yeah, go figure...and oh, that replacement Griffin usb cord I bought worked fine with the new Fuze. I came real close to buying a new battery for the E250R but instead invested that money in the Fuze.

My player is messing up


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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
