Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
This player is supposed to be a 4GB player, but after formatting it, it says that I only have 1.37GB available. Why is that? Before I formatted, it would only hold 290 songs. I thought it would hold 1,000.
Hi. Try to format this player on "Disk Management" while applying the correct File System type (FAT32) to get better results. Here are the steps: 1. Set your player to MSC mode by using using the Menu to navigate to this selection: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode, then select "MSC" 2. Plug the E260 to your computer. Your computer should recognize the player as a "Removable Drive" and it should appear with a Drive letter when browsed in Windows Explorer. 3. Open the "Computer Management" window by right-clicking on the "My Computer" icon and selecting "Manage" 4. Locate and left-click on "Disk Management" (located on the center section on the left pane of the window) 5. The right pane "Disk Management" window has an upper and lower portion. The both portions would display the Sansa E620 icon with a corresponding drive letter. Right-click on either icon and select "Format" 6. When the "Format" window appears, make sure that the File System is set to "FAT32", and that the "Quick Format" checkbox on the bottom of that screen remains un-checked. Click on "Start" to begin formatting your player. Follow the on-screen prompts 7. When the format process is complete, the E260 should display the correct capacity (approximately 3.8 GB) 8. Feel free to switch the mode back to MTP. I hope this helps. Let me know on the results. There may be other solutions I could offer. Syd :)
