Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
I'm unable to assume the exact problem with your mp3 player as you've bluntly said that the device is not working. Try the following steps and that should work. If not let me know:
SOLUTION 1 - Reset the device
- Resetting the Sansa View/Fuze
- Resetting the e200/c200 series
SOLUTION 2 - Reload and update to the latest firmware
STEP 1 - Enable MSC or Recovery mode
- Enable MSC mode on e200v2 / c200v2 / Fuze
- Force Recovery mode on e200v1 / c200v1 / e200R / View
STEP 2 - Update to the latest firmware
You may need to upload the firmware manually, there are instructions on the links below on how to manually update your firmware
- Sansa Fuze firmware update
- Sansa View firmware update
- Sansa e200 series firmware update
- Sansa c200 series firmware update
1. Make sure you Windows Media Player 11 (Goto Help --> About WMP --> v??) 2. If you do not have it, install it from this location: http://www.microsoft.com/mediaplayer 3. Change the Mode on Device: Go into Menu --> Settings --> USB Mode:Auto Detect/MTP/MSC 4. Select MSC and it should work. If it does not try Powercycling your device (turn it off and then turn it on). 5. Try other modes as well.
Keep the device in AutoDetect Mode and follow the instructions below:
