Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

Can't access files on Sansa e260

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,

tom

    Oops, sorry I meant e280...

  • fixya8001 Apr 22, 2009

    Thanks very much for the reply. I tried downloading the update and it didn't help, either with accessing Sansa Updater or with generally being able to view my the files on my player. Any other suggestions?

Put the e260 into MSC mode so it looks like a USB hard disk. Then you can drag/drop videos onto the e260. More about it here
http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board/message?board.id=e200&thread.id=10357

So you should not need a special driver to do this. If you want to watch Windows DRM-protected files then you will have to reload the driver and get Windows Media Player up to date :-(

Sansa m250 playlists


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.

Hope this helps

Syncing voice recording from Sansa e260 to windows media


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

Downloading


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.
