Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

It restarts if I try to add/delete a song

It charges up fine, but if I try to add or delete any material, the entire thing will turn itself of and restart. I've restarted the computer and I've tried changing the material using RealPlayer and Windows Media Player. The only things I can add now are videos through the Media Converter. I'm tired of swearing at the dang thing; if anyone can post some advice, I'll be very grateful.

Completely Wacky 'Sansa e260'

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. That will be the only way

The mp3 player no is no longer recognized by the computer.

Dear customer,
           Try going into your Device Manager and uninstall all the entries that are something along the lines of USB Root Hub then reboot with all USB Devices unplugged until after Windows detects and reinstalls the USB Root Hubs then plug in your MP3 Player and see if it is detected and installed properly.

          Did u change ur Operating system of late? To see what version you have, Right Clcik My Computer and choose Properties.Some USB mass storage devices and mp3 players require that you have Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 to work. I had a USB flash drive that kept restarting my computer until I installed pleas do check with tat too..
plz rate this solution.. good luck.. thank you..

Computer doesn't recognize songs on the player

Go to disc utility and click on erase volume, then you will be able to add new songs. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, you may have to delete the entire volume and start over.
