Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
I have windows vista and I am unable to sync to a portable device. At one point I was able to do this and now I am not. I can play my playlist..but as soon as I plug a device into my usb port windows player shuts down.
On your player, go to Settings, USB Mode, and switch to MSC. After that, plug your player into your Windows Vista and now you can input music on your player manually. To do that, go into your player's storage from "Computer" and you will see a folder "Music". If you do not see it, it is because it is hidden. To unhidden it, simply press ALT key when you're still on the device storage. Tabs will pop up on the top. Click "Tools" and then click "Folder Options...". You will see three tabs. Click the "View" Tab. Look at advanced options and search for the sentence "Show hidden files and folders". You will be able to mark it so that you will be able to see the hidden folders/files in your player/laptop/computer. After you mark it, close the window and go back to your device storage. Now you will see transparent folders. If you see the music folder, you can just right click it, go to properties and look at "attributes" on the bottom and uncheck "Hidden". Now you can go back to tools and switch the hidden files/folders back to hidden so they don't show up hidden files on your laptop/computer (optional). Now you can manually switch/edit songs on your player without syncing. If you'd like to sync songs instead, you can format (reset) your player by plugging your player on your vista and go to "Computer" and right click your device when you see it. Click "Format..." and your device will reset itself. I recommend you manually editing your songs if you don't want your player to lose any files. If it still doesn't work, I think you need to get a new windows media player version if youd didn't get it yet.
