Re: The system is running very slow

Hi. Normally the symptoms you described would be due to using an expandable memory card (a 2GB microSD, for example)and have loaded too many songs. Another possibility is that your Sansa E260 may be encountering corruptions in its internal/external memory. One solution would be to perform a "Low Level" format on the player under MSC mode, thus, eliminating any corruption on the player. To do so, please switch the player's mode to MSC. Under this mode, your player would function as a normal media storage device (like a flash drive). Just a reminder: Formatting would delete all of the files on your Sansa E260. You may want to make back-up copies of important files on your player before you proceed to the solution below. Here's how to perform a "Low Level" format: Step 1: Plug your player to your PC (Just a reminder, your player's minimum Operating System requirement is Windows XP and above). Windows XP would identify your player as a "Removable Drive". Step 2: On your desktop, please single right-click on the "My Computer" icon and select "Manage" from the pop-up menu list. This would open the "Computer Management" window. Step 3: On the left pane on the "Computer Management" window, single left-click on "Disk Management" (this is located on the middle section of the list, under "Storage"). Step 4: Look at the topmost portion of the right pane. This would give you a list of drives, one which would correspond to your Sansa E260. On the icon pertaining to your Sansa E260, please right-click on it and select "Format" on the pop-up menu list. This would display the "Format" window. Step 5: On the "Format" window, please make sure that the File System type is FAT32, and also make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox -- found on the bottom section of that windows -- remains unchecked. Click "Start" to begin formatting the player. Step 6: Re-transfer all your music files to the player. The most preferred method is to use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to transfer the files to your player. Another method would be to "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" the files as long as they aren't subscription music files I hope this helps resolve the "lag time" you're encountering. I just love the Sansa E260! Syd.

My playlists from sansa m250 disappeared but when i connected ..

When transfering the songs from computer to player. First, sync device before transfering. Only do this the very first time. If you try to sync with songs already on the player, they will be erased.

To test the device. Open your comuters music file folder, keep folder open, than go to start menu, go to my computer and open the folder (D: or F: folder) It will have your player listed there.

Now with both folders open, take a song from the music folder, drag it to the sansa folder and drop it in there. It should be added to player.

Few issues with my sansa..

Sounds like your music may have become corrupt.

You can follow these steps to erase and start anew.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.

Best of Luck.

Sansa is acting weird....

Well, you need to return it for a new one. If it has happened in so many few weeks, you need to. It sounds like you may have downloaded a virus. you are going to reboot it and or restart it, you have tried this so it sounds like it is just messed up. exchange it or send it in to get it reset. It will run you about $35. Thanks, Connie
