Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
The real solution for this problem is to hold the power/menu button and the play button while the refresh database screen is showing. This will reset and shutdown the device to the factory settings, and will bypass the error, but will not erase the database. But is good advice to format the device just in case there's and error on the music database

Hi. The symptoms you described may be due to corruptions in the player's music database (this player maintains an information pool on the music files you download to it). To resolve that, you would need to delete that database and let the player re-create a new one. To delete the corrupted database, let's do this: Step 1: Switch your player to MSC mode Step 2: Browse the player in "Windows Explorer", and look for the folder named "System" and/or "Data". Note: if you can't locate these folders, your Explorer may be configured to "Hide" system files and folders. To change that, please go to "Tools" on the menu list on the Explorer window, then choose "Folder Options". This will display a Window arranged in tabs. Select the "View" tab, find the "Hidden Files and Folders", then choose the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button Step 3: Under the "system" or "data" folder on the Sansa E260, look for this file and delete it: "PP5000.dat" Step 4: Safely remove your Sansa E260. Then power it on. Your player will now either display "Rebuilding Library. Please Wait" or "Finalizing Update". Either way, it would re-build the database and hopefully resolve the error your player is encountering. I hope this helps. I love the Sansa E260!!
