You could reinstall the firmware (what makes the sansa work). Its pretty easy to do, no need of downloading/installig, its already all in the sansa. You just need a computer How do I restore the firmware Firstly, place the e260 in restore mode. To do this, follow these steps 1. Push the Hold button on top of the e260 to the right. 2. Hold in the record button 3. Press and release the Menu button 4. The device will now go into Restore Mode. If you have not already connected the USB cable to your PC, it will direct you to do so. 5. The root directory of the device will open up on the PC screen. Now drag and drop the two files Firmware into into the e260 root directory. You will find a copy of the two firmware files zipped up elsewhere on these forums 6. Push the Hold button on the e260 back to the left 7. Unplug the USB cable from the PC. The e260 will now reboot, writing the new firmware images to the correct location. 8. This process will have wiped all your music files. You will now need to re-synch.

Some how or another I got my MP3 t read out a foreign language and I can't get back to english


Try to shut down your system. Restart and go into either settings, or language, it should be simple enough. However it may take some looking to find depending on which MP3 you have. It ususally however is in the language setting.

Freezes, then Shuts Off


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: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Changing language


You should turn on the mp3 player (duh!) and go to settings. On the menu, go to "language". Then select "English" or whatever language you want. I hope that helps and works!

I think there is a language option in the Settings setup. Scroll down from Menu (music,radio,voive,photos,settings). Scroll down to Language. Select English or whatever.

Have you tried holding the power button down for about 30-60 seconds? It should power off itself off. You should be able to then power it back on and it work normally.

You might try a firmware update on your daughter's. Look at solution 4 here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t131894-format_sansa_e250

I works for any Sansa e series.
