Sansa e260 has no space left to write the database info. Vista and also Windows Media Player don't ''see'' any files. I can listen to all the music on the MP3 but I want to delete some and add others.

Same problem delete a couple of songs up to 6 mg or 10 whatever then allow to refresh then download your songs back in the music file. the sansa needs some memory to know it has the sdcard in it...

Go to my computer scroll to sansa and open the media folder and open each sub folder and delete manually then delete the folders themselfs then format a couple of times hope this works
Start over put new songs on it

Problem recognizing songs in sansa e260 mp3 player.


From what I'm hearing you don't have a good driver. If you still have the disk use that. If not google it or something. I have a Sansa e260 as well so I would suggest loading the songs on in windows media player rather that windows explorer. If you open Media Player and then go to sync and it does not recognize your device, then you have a bad driver. If not, then start syncing your songs that way.

Hope everything works,

Apparently there is a known problem with older firmware with some MP3 files having info in the ID part of the file that makes the player go crazy. So update your firmware or listen to different music :-)

"Bugs Fixed: Stability· Hanging at Refresh Database with certain ID3 tag genres."

This info from page below. Also shows you how to update to latest firmware which may fix your problem

Music files won't show up


Is your device almost full? The player needs sever MB's of space to create the database or menu, for you to navigate with. Try deleting some music, then restart the device. Best of Luck.

Hi. The symptoms you described may be due to corruptions in the player's music database (this player maintains an information pool on the music files you download to it). To resolve that, you would need to delete that database and let the player re-create a new one. To delete the corrupted database, let's do this: Step 1: Switch your player to MSC mode Step 2: Browse the player in "Windows Explorer", and look for the folder named "System" and/or "Data". Note: if you can't locate these folders, your Explorer may be configured to "Hide" system files and folders. To change that, please go to "Tools" on the menu list on the Explorer window, then choose "Folder Options". This will display a Window arranged in tabs. Select the "View" tab, find the "Hidden Files and Folders", then choose the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button Step 3: Under the "system" or "data" folder on the Sansa E260, look for this file and delete it: "PP5000.dat" Step 4: Safely remove your Sansa E260. Then power it on. Your player will now either display "Rebuilding Library. Please Wait" or "Finalizing Update". Either way, it would re-build the database and hopefully resolve the error your player is encountering. I hope this helps. I love the Sansa E260!!
