Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Not "seeing" the microSD card

According to the manual, when I connect my player and open My Computer (XP Pro) where I see the Sansa player I should see the SD card (or maybe it was once I click on the player, then I would see the SD card) Either way - it doesn't show up anywhere. (Kingston 2gb microSD) Have used the card previously in a camera and it worked fine. If it's that it needs to be formatted - how can I format if the computer doesn't even "see" it - only the player itself.

    It doesn't "see" the card - even removing and replacing and refreshing. It only sees the 4 gb onboard - not the 2 gb microSD card or a 4 gb microSD card, And I know both of these cards are good (they worked in cameras, and still do - and they've now been blanked for the Sansa player)



    I would think that even if not formatted (if that's the problem) they should see the cards. Now, it's NOT just my player - we have 3 more (same model bought same time) here at home - and no one has been able to plug the player in and "see" the card.



    We wanted to be able to put different music on the different cards to swap around - but if we can't find a place to copy the music to (because the card doesn't show up) - it's kind of hard to make that work. I especially need to keep some free space on the original 4 gb as I sometimes need to do voice recordings - and I learned with my older c240 that it had to do on the player and it would not record to the microSD cards.



    When I plug into the USB cable, the player is always off - and right now with it not seeing the card, I am not finding a way to reformat. (it only wants to reformat the 4 gb onboard)

If the computer "sees" your player then it also "sees" the sd card.
Only if the sd card is in your player.

If that didn't help, make sure your player is off and not on the hold position.

If you want to reformat then be careful it erases all files and data.

My computer doesn't recognise my sansa 260.


Sansa Not Recognized: Try connecting it to another computer the back straight to the motherboard ths should be USB 2.0 and see if it will recognize it as sansa or Drive/removable drive. if it does then download the sansa update software and install it. Make sure you disconnect the sansa and connect it when asked. This will update your sansas firmware and add the Usb Mode. Try to connect it to your computer at home it should recognize.... link for update software (http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe) download to a flash drive much easier. Make sure USB mode is MSC
Recovery Mode may also allow your computer to recognize the sansa
lock your sansa hold in the rec key on the left at the same time push the menu/power button this will take you to recovery mode then connect to the computer Start the update software when finished disconnect

How do i access mp3 files on the SD card


Put the card into the player, connect your player to your computer via USB, and open up "My Computer".

You will either see the player under the computer as something like "Sansa Clip", or you will see two new drive letters, one for the Clip's internal memory, and one for the microSD card.

If you see the two new drive letters, double-click on the one associated with the microSD card, and you will see the files on it (probably in folders, like "Music").

If you just see something like "Sansa Clip", double-click on that, and you should see two entries, "Internal Memory" and "Expansion Card". Double-click on "Expansion Card", and you will see the files on the microSD card.

Trying to add 4 GB microSDHC card to sandisk sansa e260. connect e260 to computer via USB. insert micro card. computer does not recognize microcard. why?


Hello,

The player automatically connects to the computer in Media Transfer Protocol mode (MTP mode).
For accessing the microSD card in the player, the USB connection in the player has to be set to MSC mode, see:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/167

How to change USB mode for the e200 series, proceed as next:
1. From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
2. Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC.
Manuals for the e200 series:

The photo files that aren't showing up don't meet the specification in some way or another - they aren't jpeg, the resolution is wrong, or the file size is wrong. Transferring music files from card in mp3 player to computer may not be possible - connect mp3 player to computer, double-click my computer, and open photos folder or any other folder that looks relevant - see if the said photo files are in there. If not, then you are out of luck.

My computer will read my e250 but not my microsd card


Switch your player into MSC mode via Main Menu > Settings > USB mode. When the player is connected it will show as two drives, the player, and the microSD card just like a card reader. You can transfer files directly to the expansion card.
