GET SOFTWARE FROM sANSA WEBSITE

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.

I connect sansae260 to PC, Nothing apears on Sansa's Screen


You may need to now reset the player, that may have been a bit much for it.
To reset your Sansa Mp3 player.
  1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds.
  2. Release the Power switch.
  3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.

Please send the process to Sansa e260 Mp3 Player solve the problem of Recovery mode


If your CD is damaged, you can obtain a replacement from Sandisk.

To enter Recovery Mode, turn off your device, ensure the HOLD switch on top is slid to the right (towards the headphone jack), connect the cable to the device (not the computer yet), hold down the RECORD switch on the side, and connect the cable to a USB port on the computer.

If this does not solve your problem, you will need to re-install the firmware.

Try using the Sansa Dispatch to upgrade your firmware. If this does not work, we may need to manually update the device. This is kind of technical and (in most* cases) voids the warranty.


[*in this instance, the word "most" is used to denote "all".]

Purchased CD song to Sansa


Open Windows Media Player.
Click on the Rip tab.
Insert the CD into the computer.
Click Start Rip
Windows Media Player will convert the songs on the cd to a format that the Sansa player recognizes - may take a few minutes.
Click Sync.
Drag the files from the CD to the right window pane.
Click Start Sync.

Presto!
