In order to help you illl need more information, like what programs are you using to download and convert them into your mp3 player? i use rhapsody, because when i used to use windows media player it would give me the same problems you seem to be having. P.s. my e250 screen is broken v.t it was the only thing holding my entire colection of kick ass songs, most of which are irreplaceable due to undownloadableness. i could kill myself

Won't play certain songs

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:

E260R skips over songs

Make sure you have copies of ALL of your songs. Then format the e260 and resync it.

Problem with volume in player

Every mp3 player manual has a disclaimer that says not to play it at max volume - the only workaround is to get adjustable headphones, and keep player volume at less than max
