Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

The video and voice recording on my sansa e260 stopped working.

I was recording something once and I guess I recorded too much and it froze when I went to save it. Then when I'd restarted it, all my voice recordings are gone. I can still press record and it'll work fine but it just won't save them when it says it does. Then a little while later, I put several videos on my it. I unplugged it from the computer, and was able to watch them fine, then I turned it off for an hour or so to eat and when I turned it back on all the videos were gone. I tried reloading one or two videos and unplugged it from the computer and it still said there were no videos on the player. What can I do to fix this? Some people said to reformat it but I'm not sure how or if that's what I should do.

You should not reformat the player unless you want to clear the mp3 player completely - erasing all music, recording, and other files completely.

Once you are done recording, the Sansa takes time trying to save the recorded files - it appears that it is freezing, but give it some time - it is just "thinking."

If the recorded files suddenly disappear, it is because the Sansa player has two modes - MSC mode and MTP mode. Files that appear in MTP mode will not appear in MSC mode and vice versa. If the recordings do not show up, go into your settings menu and switch the USB Mode.

infrarecorder is free and open source software for burning data, videos, and music (mp3s) to cd. You just pick the file you want to burn (or drag and drop it) and choose audio cd in infrarecorder.

I have an option on my sandisk sansa fuze mp3 player for voice recordings. There is pre-recorded literature that I would like to download, but, I only know how to download these voice recordings under...


You can't. Audiobooks are just like music, and the Sansa treats them that way. Think of them as words spoken without music.

Voice recordings are made on the Sansa, when you use it as a digital recorder. You can record lectures, meetings, or notes to yourself, and play them back.

Retrieval of deleted voice recorded file


maybe, there are programs that retrieve deleted files, but sadly you need to buy them.

this only works if you havn't added any new voice recording (or a lot of voice recordings) or if you havn't reformatted your player.

You cannot transfer from the player to the computer - sorry. The follwoing is the method you would use, but it won't work:
Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mp3 player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing
