Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Wont load Everytime i try to add songs into a folder, usually in the "Music" folder with the rest of the original tracks stored in the player and in the MTP usb mode the files are copied, however when i turn the player on, it doesn't show up...on top of that theres no changes in the storage levels...and yes, they are mp3s. also some of the folders i've chucked in are usually "hidden" so i dont know if that would make a difference. I've formatted it once and installed the new firmware files and mi4 and what not, and they worked fine the first time I loaded new songs in the player. However, i've only managed to successfully load the files once and that was right after i installed the mi4 files, does this mean i have to do it again to load more songs in the player? Basically, problem is...i copy and paste songs from computer to the player, it shows the files have been copied into the sandisk "music" folder...but doesn't actually come up in the player when i turn it on.

Wenever i upload songs its stored in gallery.. i want songs to hear in music player.. how to do that???

The songs may be stored anywhere, but they are displayed in gallery. To hear them one by one you just go to gallery->music/tracks/songs-> andselect the song. It will be automatically be played by music player. Then there is a PlayList. In this you put your favourite songs in a particular order and just start it and songs will be played one after the other. To make a PlayList you must open the Tracks folder and then select songs and from options go to Add To PlayList.

Song Removal

Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders them selfs then format

Try and drag and drop from your music folder to the media folder on the player make sure usb mode is msc this will show you all the folders Use your windows explorer for the transfer... much easier...If you don't have copies of your music copy to a folder on the computer first
Make sure you have it in MSC usb mode
Download and install run connect sansa when asked. Link
This has the manual also

Deleting songs.

Your DB might be corrupt. Folow the delete procedure one more time:
Delete Music Files
1) Connect your Sansa to the computer.
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
3) Select the place where you want to delete music files from
4) Highlight and delete the music file/s or folder from My Computer\Sansa
folder. (You can also select from a variety of music
software programs to transfer/synchronize your files).

If that fails, go ahead and update the firmware - it will delete everything, and allow you to start over from scratch among other things.

Sansa music transfer problem

Thats probably the best idea to erase everything and start anew. You can format the device in My Computer>Device Name (e250)>Right Click on it and select Format. This will erase everything on your device. If you are getting Bad Track from just a few songs, just delete them as they may be corrupt. Also, you need to keep some free space on the device to create the database. Keep at least 6MB free for every GB. Best of Luck.

When i connect to the computer, i can add songs, but the songs on it dont show up

I don't know if you've inadvertently deleted the music folder, but that's what I did, when I deleted all the folders by mistake, thank heavens for in-store warrenty, they replaced it with another one. What I noticed on my replacement is synchronizing with media player doesn't work, it creates ghost folders and thinks music is there when it isn't, I don't understand it. Solution: open two windows for my music and sansa e280 music, then just drag and drop the folders; what I noticed is that in my music the folders are named by artist, and I prefer to see them by album, but when I view them in the player, I see the albums with the tracks in the right order.
