Okay well i got my sansa e260 5 months and it was fine. but just yesterday it wouldn't play my songs!
well that day i accidentally synchronized my mp3 with the computer media player. i cancelled before it fully synchronized though. but i had a few songs copied on that were already there or i didn't want so i deleted them afterwards.
i have 127 songs on mine. but now it says that there's only 14 songs and they're the ones that should have been deleted!! when i connect it to the computer, it says they ARE deleted and i have 127 songs in storage (im even using up the same memory as if i have 127 songs) so i don't know what's going on! HELP
I had something similar happen. The solution was to reformat the device.
connect the player, open my computer, right click on the device, and select format. This will erase everything on the player.

You go to Settings, check System Info, check number of songs in there. If they are existing, you should change to MTP or MSC to play it. Or go to Settings, Reset All, Yes. Try it.
If you accidentally formatted it, can't restore them.
I've had this happen a couple of times in the last 6 months. You can get it to play again by chosing the format option from the settings menu. Of course, then you've lost everything you had loaded on to it. Download your music/audio books again and they will play.
ok buddy...it might be problem with the storage.. try to format the player once.. now the player will be fresh... now download all the songs and try whether its working fine... if the problem continues try to contact the player manufacturer for replacement
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Okay, here's what i've encountered: songs that I downloaded on rhapsody, without purchasing, only lasted about 7-10 days unless i reconnected. once my trial period ended, i lost all the songs. songs that i've purchased i've had no trouble (although if you load them to the sansa immediately after download, you may get the same message. its best to wait at least 24 hours). good luck
