Re: SANSA E260 problems!! HELP!!
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 the following method to see what is on your Sansa e260
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there. Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
If you want to delete some or all of the files do the following:
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete" Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want. Good Luck, I hope this helps
You need to synch them to Rhapsody or whatever music service you pulled the songs from. also, make sure your music service subscription supports transfer to portable devices instead of simple transfer to a computer.
help! i have tried to download my copied cds through rhapsody & windows media player. nothing happens in rhapsody & windows gives me an error occurred message after each song when i try to copy to e260.
thanks for your input,
You have to synchronize your Sansa to a computer that has a current subscription to Rhapsody, and you have to sync the Sansa to that same computer at least once every 30 days, or the Rhapsody songs will stop working. Use a different music service that is free, or convert all of the songs to Mp3 format to get around the problem. If you get a subscription to another music svc, then you must maintain a current subscription with whatever new svc you choose as well.
Sounds like you have a few different problems, thankfully its easy to resolve.
Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website, select FORMAT when prompted.
Best of Luck.
(this only works with non Rhapsody devices, annotated by an 'R' or the word Rhapsody on back)
I hope this info would help:
Your Sansa E260 has 2 modes: MTP (Music Transfer Protocol) and MSC (Mass Storage Class). Your Operating System recognizes each mode differently, and music files saved in one mode would not be seen when you switch to the other mode, and vice versa.
Try switching to each of these modes, then plug it to your computer and browse the player. To switch modes, use the following menu navigation:
Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode
This would give the choice of MTP and MSC.
