G'day, I've been using my Sansa e260 for two years, just by dragging and dropping files in Windows Explorer while in MSC mode. But for the past few months I haven't been able to access any files on my player.
When I plug it, two new drives show up as usual, but when I click on them there is nothing inside. I try searching inside them and nothing comes up. And yes, I do have "Show Hidden Files" enabled...
I am running firmware version 01.02.18A. I haven't installed the latest firmware because Sansa Firmware Updater doesn't recognize my device when I plug it in.
Any thoughts on what the problem could be are greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot,

Follow these steps to drag-and-drop music files to your Sansa player:
1. Connect your Sansa player to your computer.
2. Open Windows Explorer.
3. Double-click on your Sansa player.
4. Double-click Internal Memory if you are using WMP 11 or double-click
Media if you are using WMP 10.

First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:
) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB". 2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".
Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.
However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.
To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:
- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode - Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list - Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings" - Check "Synchronize device automatically" - Set "View" to "All Playlists" - Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device - Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.
You cannot transfer from the player to the computer - sorry. The follwoing is the method you would use, but it won't work: Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mp3 player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing
Convert you *.cda CD files into MP3 extension files, then put them into as many subdirectories as there are disks to avoid overriding the number of cuts on a disk (typically no higher than 25), then put them in directories marked 1 thru whatever number of disks there are, drag and drop the respective converted mp3s to the directory that corresponds to the CD disk. Then drag and drop the whole works to your playlist directory in your e260, and presto you've got the whole thing. The E260's included software will not do this, but there should be some freeware around that will do it. Perhaps evern media player will do it. I don't know. I'm wary of any MS programs. They're monsters. The who drag and drop procedure is done in Windows Explorer, the file manager of XP and, I think, vista too.
