Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
Hi. I'm having a problem transfering photos to my Sansa. I went to the Sansa Media Converter, clicked on a photo, and clicked on convert. But whenever I try to convert a photo or video it fails. It says: "Failed Reason(s): Device cannot be initialized. Transferring media files to device failed." What's wrong? Why won't it transfer?? And also I'm having a problem uploading music to a group. I click on 'browse' to upload but when I click on the folder my songs are not there. But when I go to my my computer then my music folder, all of my songs are there. If the songs are in the music folder why aren't they there when I try to browse and upload them?? PLEASE HELP!
Everyone - install quicktime to get the right codecs to fix the video conversion issue
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: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
