Re: Sansa e260 mp3 player came with no software cd
There is no Software Needed for this Player. It is Designed to "SYNC" with Windows Media Player. If you have got the latest WMP you will be OK, If Not, Download the New WMP. When you Start WMP on the Tabs at the Top, One of them will say Sync. Just Click and Drag your Songs to the Pane on the Right. When you are Ready Press Sync at the Bottom and it will Put them on your Player.

Download the software after you run the link below ....Put check next to converter/firmware update/Manual download...run the programs follow instructions.......(http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe) here is the link
After installation connect your sansa...... Also make sure you are connected to a 2.0 usb the back of the computer is best (the motherboard)....

enter scroll to settings press enter scroll to usb mode press enter
scroll to msc press enter press menu.....Connect should auto start sansa
Updates firmware follow instructions
try formatting it. to do that, simply scroll down to settings, and in
settings hit format. you'll lose everything that was on it tho, if that
don't work then try updating. if your unsure how to update go here. and install the program.
If your CD is damaged, you can obtain a replacement from Sandisk.
To enter Recovery Mode, turn off your device, ensure the HOLD switch on top is slid to the right (towards the headphone jack), connect the cable to the device (not the computer yet), hold down the RECORD switch on the side, and connect the cable to a USB port on the computer.
If this does not solve your problem, you will need to re-install the firmware.
Try using the Sansa Dispatch to upgrade your firmware. If this does not work, we may need to manually update the device. This is kind of technical and (in most* cases) voids the warranty.
[*in this instance, the word "most" is used to denote "all".]
For everyone having e260 problems here is the answer. First make sure that you have your usb mode on msc before plugging in to the computer. Then go to folder options and select show hidden folders. You now have access to the music folders and can delete music. You can create a new folder or use the music folder for your music. To prevent future problems go to properties on the hidden folders and unhide them.
Maybe the problem is not the player or what you are downloading but the program you are using to get the music on your player. I had a similar problem and I just had to use a different program to load my music.
My same player did not come with the CD. Depending on which program you use to get your music on your player, the CD is not needed. Try connecting your sansa to your computer and open whatever program you use for your music.
