White screen on sansa e260

So just yesterday i was listening to my sansa e260 mp3 player and i discovered that there is corrupted songs on the device. I have tried to delete them from the folder on my computer but they will not delete. Another problem that has happened is when i turn on my device it starts to load up but then it just goes to a white screen. The blue scroll button still works and it still turns off but i have tried everything to get it to work and nothing has worked yet. Does anyone have a solution? :(

"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.

Problem recognizing songs in sansa e260 mp3 player.


From what I'm hearing you don't have a good driver. If you still have the disk use that. If not google it or something. I have a Sansa e260 as well so I would suggest loading the songs on in windows media player rather that windows explorer. If you open Media Player and then go to sync and it does not recognize your device, then you have a bad driver. If not, then start syncing your songs that way.

Hope everything works,

My mp3 frozen on the welcome screen and restart and freeze again


First reset the Sansa e260. The way you do this is you hold down the power (menu) button for 15-25 seconds. This usually solves it.

Good Luck,

Stuck in language mode


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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

reformat it. 1. right click on my computer and select manage. 2. go to disk management on the left panel. 3. right click on the sansa icon, and go to format. 4. make sure that the file system is under FAT32. This worked for me, hope it does for you.
