Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
I am getting the above mesasge on my Sansa e260. I get it everytime I turn it on and off. I lost all my music it is not even listed. I tried reseting to the factory defaults but that did not seem to work. I can use all the features of my e260 but I cannot load any music to it. When I connect my e260 my pc does not even reconize it. It will charge but that is it. I tied the scandisk website and did not get anywhere. Does anyone have any idea how I can get get rid of this message so I can download music to my e260. Thanks Ken
If it wont connect to the PC, you need to put it into recovery mode and format it with the recovery tool from SanDisk. Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool. - Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds) - Slide the hold switch into "hold" position. - Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer. Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted. Best of Luck.

format using command window
format g: (where g is the letter of your sensa player)

Your only option is to use the "Format Device" option. I've had to do this twice. It does not delete your music files but it does recreate the database.
