Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
My Sansa e260, that I've gotten only like 1-2 weeks ago, won't write most of the songs and if it does it comes up and says bad track when I goto play a song. It's weird though because when I goto put the songs on it, it pops up a empty file that has a filename that is in either Japanese or Chinese (I can't tell because I'm American) and it pops up on the first song. Also if I goto transfer files with Windows Media Player, only about a dozen show up on the mp3 player and about half of the rest go on but they're corrupted. I also had a problem, which i fixed with another problem someone posted, that when I turned on the player I would get a black system message saying it couldn't load some kind of icon or something like that. I fixed it by going into the "recovery mode" and updating the firmware. And another problem I encountered, shortly before posting this, was when I would turn the player on I would get the Sansa screen but it would be really bright and white and it not loading. I fixed that though by holding down the Power/Menu button until it shut off. So if anybody can tell me a way to stop my mp3 player from malfunctioning that would be great. I know it is not a hardware problem with the player, it is a software problem. So if anybody has any ideas on fixing all this it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Go to settings / usb / switch to the other setting M something
Then commect to your computer Go to my computer select sansa 250 and open data file and delete the DAT FILE
Back out of the data file disconnect from computer and restart the sansa player
IT will reload the DAT FILE
GO BACK TO SETTINGS AND RESELECT THE USB
the player should load songs and play ok

The songs that you try to play and it says bad track that means it is not supported you need to get the song supported

Well, I have this same mp3 and I learned that when I was getting the bad track notice, that ment that the track is not supported by the player. Only certian tracks can be placed on the player. Tipster14
