Re: song problem (SanDisk 4gb

This is going to take some investigation on your part. First of all, make sure that the correct song works on your PC. That is, if you launch Don't Wanna Miss A Thing on your PC and Bout It plays, then it's the media file, not the Sansa player. Make sure you launch the specific media file from Windows, NOT from your media player software. You want to check the FILE first. (Reverse the files too - launch Bout It and see what plays) If the files are right, then launch them from your media player software. If they're wrong when you play them from the media player software, check the properties of the song. If everything is okay on the PC, then check the Sansa. If you are directly launching the music file on the Sansa (that is, not from a playlist) and it's wrong, then put the Sansa in MSC mode and check the file. Drag it to your PC and launch it. If it's wrong, replace it. If your launching the file from a playlist, just redo the playlist with the correct file after you've finished your troubleshooting.

Video songs

this is because your mp3 player isn't meant to play video songs. its an MP3 player, meaning it won''t play AVI video files.

"Bad Track" Messages on e260

You have songs that may be protected or the wrong format for your device.
delete the bad song and download another copy from a different source and try it.
This is not to uncommon due to different file formats and protection in the song files
When you rip songs from another device often some won't load or play in another device
especially if they are paid for songs.

My songs wont add onto my sandisk sansa mp3 player

What format are the songs you're not able to hear? It's possible that the songs are not in a format the Sansa can play.

Also, you can navigate your Sansa like a removable drive. Try going to "My Computer" and looking to see what's actually on the drive.

here is the link to the manual which software are you using to look at the files on the computer? - the problem may be with that. this link gives you the details of how to update the firmware for your player - this hopefully would solve the issue and is worth it anyway. Hope this helps :)

Plug in your sandisk into the usb driver, click on my computer you should see SANSA M230 (F:) right click on it, you should see format, click on format. And finally click on quick format, then start. That should do the trick. Note it erases all songs. Your welcome! :)
