Sansa media player e260 deleting files

I can't delete any video files from the mediaplayer in either MTC or MSC modes. In fact in MSC mode, no video files other than the 2 that came with the player appears. I've read the suggestions on your site to fix this, but it seems that to format the player will mean that I will loose everything and I don't know how I can back up the files when I can't even see them? Please help!

Since I'm not to familiar with your device I would suggest it would be best to plug the device in to your computer with its data cable and browse the devices file system for the files you wish to remove. Chances are if the device reads that it has less memory the files are on there but not in the correct file format. Some mp3 players for example require a certain video format and usually the program to translate the videos comes with the device software. If you wish to remove them from the device or simply check to see if they are there, etc. This would be the best way to do that.

Delete songs from mp3


1) Go to Settings/USB Mode and change to MSC mode which make it works as a flash drive/memory stick 2) In Windows explorer, you should see two drives in My Computer, one for the unit, one for the card slo 3) As for a 'normal' PC, you can now just delete any files/songs from your Sansa directories in either drives! (you can also move existing or add new files). note: if your normally use SanDisk Media Converter program or Windows Media Player, you must change the USB mode setting on your Sansa back to 'MTP' before those programs can see your device.

Sansa E260- Cannot delete songs/ won't respond to modified files.


In order to sync the files with media player the device must be in MTP mode MSC mode is used for drag/drop file updating. try setting MTP and then sync it or just open the drive file in my computer in either mode to update the file list.

How do I get my Sansa e260 to appear in Windows Media Player (v. 11; Vista)?


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.

Hi there.

There are 2 ways to delete songs from your Sansa E260: By browsing the folders containing the songs, or by formatting the player.

To browse the player, it's important to know first that the player has 2 modes: MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) and MSC (Mass Storage1.gif Class). Music files saved on one mode would not be seen in the other mode when browsed through Windows Explorer.
You can switch modes by navigating your E260's menu using the following:

Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode

Next, plug your player in your PC and open Windows Explorer. You should first set your Explorer to "Show hidden Files1.gif and Folders" by going to the "Tools" menu (located on menu lists on Windows Explorer window), then choosing "Folder Options", then enabling the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio1.gif button

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Sansa E260 icon in Explorer as a "Portable Audio Device". Double left-click this icon to browse the player.
2. You'll find a "PPI NAND" sub-folder. Again, double left-click on this sub-folder.
3. You'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it.
4. Your music should appear as individual files or folders. Delete this to remove the file(s) from the player

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Drive letter and entitled either as a "Removable Drive" or as "Sansa E260"
2. Double left-click on this drive letter to browse the player
3. You may find your music files immediately on this folder, or you'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it and view your music files.
4. Delete the music files you want, and they should be removed from the player

Deleting files through Format:

1. Formatting the player erases all files in the player, and oftentimes this is the best option to ensure that all files are removed and any corruption eliminated. Also, it is best to format the player when in MSC mode.
2. When the appears as a drive letter (under MSC mode), right-click on that drive letter and select "Format". On the "Format" pop-up window, click "Start" to begin the format process.
3. Follow the on-screen prompts and safely remove the player from your PC when the "Format Complete" display appears.
4. Unplug the player from the PC and when the player is powered up, the message "No Files" should appear on the player's LCD screen
5. Switch the mode back to "MTP", or continue to use "MSC". Note: It is best to use "MTP" when you are transferring subscription music to the player

I hope this helps. :)
