If you used Windows Media Player to "rip" (copy) the music to your computer. The default settings are to "copy protect my music" if you didnt change this setting, the Sansa will want a "license" to go with it. Resolution, change the setting in Windows Media Player, Tools>Options>Rip Music (uncheck copy protect my music). You can also change the default rip setting to Mp3, as opposed to Windows Media Audio. Then you would have to re-rip the tracks to your PC, as unprotected. Make sure you delete the old tracks from the device, otherwise, it will always give you that error message. Best of Luck.

How do you reformat the sansa E260?


There are several possibilities.

1) The songs that you loaded may not be compatible with the player - iTunes files, for instance.
2) The songs that you downloaded may not have transfer rights - i.e.: they will play fine on a computer, but they will not play on an mp3 player.

The solution to the above two possibilities would be to download songs that are in mp3 format only. They do not have strings, stipulations, headaches, etc. attached to them.

Possibility #3 is that your mp3 player is in the wrong USB Mode. Songs that show up in MSC mode do not show up in MTP mode, and vice versa. To change this, go into your Sansa player's settings menu and change the USB Mode.

Won't upload a certain cd


It seems odd that the device wont play 1 particular artist. If you downloaded it from URGE, it may be subscription content and that may be causing the error. I would try burning the music to a cd, then re-rip them back to your computer to see if that strips out the problems. Best of Luck.

Pink Screen says "No Song"


Hi. It would seem that either the internal memory of your player has been corrupted or the firmware has experienced some errors. The best way to fix your player would be to either format it or re-load its firmware. Either way, you may need to re-load your music files once again. First, you would need to set your player to MSC mode by navigating the menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode, then select "MSC". If you have the "Rhapsody" E200 version, then select "Rhapsody" (it's the same as "MSC" mode) Next, plug your player in your computer and look for the drive letter corresponding to your Sansa. Right-click on the drive letter, then select "Format". Just make sure that the File System is set to FAT32. Click "Start" to begin the Format and follow the on-screen prompts. Since your songs came from audio CD, simply Drag-and-drop the files to your player (MSC mode is will actually work best with audio CD songs) If this does not work, then go ahead and re-load your Firmmware using this instruction I received from SanDisk technical support: Switch your Sansa E260 to its Recovery Mode: 1. Make sure the player is powered off 2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface 3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button. 4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E260 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode" 5. Connect your E260 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above) 6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E260 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6. Next, Apply the firmware for the E260 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time): Step 1: Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E260 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop": http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe Step 2: Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred. Step 3: When the process is complete, unplug your E260 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch Step 4: Power up your E260 and 90-99% of the time, it would restore your player to normal settings.
