Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

Songs When Selected Play Something Else & Songs that are missing altogether

I have 2 problems. I've had my sansa since xmas, everything was working great until I deleted some songs. When I added more songs, it showed up in my music folder but when I selected to play it on my sansa, it'd play a different song. I thought by deleting all songs in my folder would clear it the problem but it made it worse. I've tried putting back 100+ songs and only 10 or so are playable. They show in the folder but not my sansa playlist. Not sure what to do. Any help is much appreciated.

My sansa clip won't play the songs I loaded on!


I've had this happen a couple of times in the last 6 months. You can get it to play again by chosing the format option from the settings menu. Of course, then you've lost everything you had loaded on to it. Download your music/audio books again and they will play.

It's hit-and-miss whether my Sansa will register transferred mp3s


first try using windows media player to sync.. it tends to work a bit better if not
try this...

1 connect your sansa to comp via usb cable
2 right click start on windows desktop go to explore
3 scroll down to your sansa's drive rifght click it go to properties
4 go to tools tab and click "check now" under error checking will take awhile and will erase your memory on the sansa but it will probably work again

I hope my post was helpful let me know!!!!

Music won't play


Some music services have a fixed-term license that they put on the songs - you may have to resychronize the Sansa to the computer AND the music service to regain playability. Alternatively, you could have a corrupt DB already - sad, but possible. The good news is that you can fix a corrupt DB by downloading the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website. Good luck!

Sansa e280 - missing songs from mp3 playlists but playable through the computer


Hi make sure that the songs that are on the player are in MP3 or WMA file format. If they are in MP3 or WMA format, reformat the player and reload the songs back to the mp3 player. I and some of my friends experience the same problem but thanks from the sandisk technical support people i found out that it was just the songs that i am transferring are in MP4. Hope this helps out.

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.

Loading Music folders


heres the answer to your problem. Edit the ID3 Tags on your songs. The player would determine how it would organize the songs on the player depending on the ID3 Tags of the song.

Won't play certain songs


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.
