SanDisk Sansa E260: How do I reset the WHOLE thing?

For Bad Track or the message about 6 MB needed in database, you need to run a ChkDsk first before resetting the device, otherwise it will re-occur. Put the unit in MSC mode, then connect the player to your PC.
Next, find the drive letter (whatever it is...let's call it X:/Sansa E2xx) in Computer.Right-click on the drive. Click Properties/Tools tab and Error-checking, and then Check now. If you have an option to fix things, tell it to do that.
You can also run a chkdsk by accessing the start menu (the Windows orb on the lower left side of your screen in Vista), and type "cmd" (without the quotation marks) in the "Search Now" field and hit enter. Then type chkdsk X:/f (replace X with the drive letter of your Sansa).
Windows will check for corrupt files and ask you if you want to save the bad files (or chains). Don't save them.

After this, to reset the player:
1. Select Settings in Main Menu.
2. Select the Reset item.
3. Select the Yes item.

The song does not have transfer rights - you must upgrade to Napster To Go.

Stuck in language mode

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:

Uploading songs takes forever...

your computer might need to have a disk defragment run on it and also try that for the mp3 player itself

Menu of languages, won't let me play songs, shut down

Try formatting the player in MSC mode (SETTINGS>USB MODE>MSC) in the My Computer window. Then after it has been formatted try updating the firmware of the player. Notify me if you want steps on how to update the firmware of the player. :D
