Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
I have had this device since Christmas and it worked fine for a few months and then In April I was listening to music and all of a sudden everything froze, the screen froze and the music stopped... it stayed like this for two days and then decided to work again. It has done that several times... Is there anything I can do to fix this? Also i am having a problem with "bad tracks" i have tried to delete everything from my deivce and start over but it wont let me delete the "bad tracks"... All of the so called "bad tracks" are located in a playlist but everytime i try to delete the playlist my computer says "Windows Media Player Can not delete a file from device" What do i Do?
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
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
