On your player, try going to Settings, USB Mode, and switch it to MSC if you didn't. Now plug your player in and go to "My computer", and open up your player. It is now used as a storage device, but you can still edit the music section (including the video section). Now try deleting all the music inside and create a new folder for your music. Now drag all your music files inside the folder you just made (this will not affect your album, genre, etc categories). After that, unplug your device and try the music files to see if they work. If they still don't work, I suggest you just format (reset) your player. To do that, simply plug your device on your computer. Then go to "My Computer" and when you see the device there, right click it and click on "Format...". Before that, if you don't want to loose any of your files (music, video, etc), I suggest you store them in your PC and put them back in your player after the reset.

When on click on my sansa e260 in Rhapsody I see


Try the following method to see what is on your Sansa e260

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.

If you want to delete some or all of the files do the following:
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

On my sansa e260 when i put songs on internal hard drive my song information says unknown (does not change if i change song information using wmps advanced tag editor) but if i put same song on my sd card...


What I would do is find the music file on your computer. Right click on the file and go to properties. After that you should be able to edit the tag manually. Then you should try and drag and drop the music to your player. Try this and see if it works. If there are still problems try adding music through windows media player. If you dont know how to do that here is how:
open up windows media player and connect your mp3 player then once it recognizes it open up the music library and start dragging the songs you want from the list over to the sync list and after your done click on the sync button and wait after its done you should have hours of music to enjoy

Problem recognizing songs in sansa e260 mp3 player.


From what I'm hearing you don't have a good driver. If you still have the disk use that. If not google it or something. I have a Sansa e260 as well so I would suggest loading the songs on in windows media player rather that windows explorer. If you open Media Player and then go to sync and it does not recognize your device, then you have a bad driver. If not, then start syncing your songs that way.

Hope everything works,

Hey, sansa problem with media player 10


Try formatting the player again.
When you open windows media player it is probably showing the songs that you have on your computer not the songs currently on your sansa.

Music files won't show up


Is your device almost full? The player needs sever MB's of space to create the database or menu, for you to navigate with. Try deleting some music, then restart the device. Best of Luck.
