Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

3 Answers

Song Removal Someone gave me a Sansa e260. I can put my music on the player but I can not figure out how to get to the music that was alredy on there and take some of it off. That way I do not have to listen to the music I do not like, I can listen to my music. I do like some of the songs that he had on there and would hope there is a way to only remove what I want to and leave the other songs. Thank you, Susanne

Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders them selfs then format

Try and drag and drop from your music folder to the media folder on the player make sure usb mode is msc this will show you all the folders Use your windows explorer for the transfer... much easier...If you don't have copies of your music copy to a folder on the computer first
Make sure you have it in MSC usb mode
Download and install run connect sansa when asked. Link

With the Sansa you can load music from any computer, but only the computer that the music originated from can see it. Example: If your friend loaded music on the player on his computer and then you load music with your computer you can listen to all the music. When you connect the player on your computer you can only see what you added from that computer. If you connect the player on his computer you should only see the music added from his PC and not yours. You should be able to format the player and that should clear the entire music from the player so you can start fresh.

I wish I had a solution... I have this same problem, except the original computer I copied the songs from has long since been reformatted. Now I can't add OR remove anything. I don't want to lose all that I have on there. What can I do to access the songs on the player and add new ones as well from my new computer?

On my sansa e260 when i put songs on internal hard drive my song information says unknown (does not change if i change song information using wmps advanced tag editor) but if i put same song on my sd card...


What I would do is find the music file on your computer. Right click on the file and go to properties. After that you should be able to edit the tag manually. Then you should try and drag and drop the music to your player. Try this and see if it works. If there are still problems try adding music through windows media player. If you dont know how to do that here is how:
open up windows media player and connect your mp3 player then once it recognizes it open up the music library and start dragging the songs you want from the list over to the sync list and after your done click on the sync button and wait after its done you should have hours of music to enjoy

Someone gave a sansadisk e260 and I want to know how to clean it(or delete all the music that it came with)so that I could put the music I like. The manual don't explained very much.


Under settings, there is a Format option. Select that option and the disk will be erased of all preloaded stuff. From there, connect it to your Windows machine and either use Media Center to sync your music or open the Sansa up like a drive and drag the music to there.

What to do


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: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
