    Unit is fully charged. I removed the HDD and did a reset, I still get the same message. CHECK HDD CONNECTION. It's like the drive is not there. When I put the drive back in, same message.

    Please help!

    I've been having the same problems for the past few months, however this time it doesn't seem to be coming back. I've tried plugging it in my computer via the USB but nothing. Thankfully I've got most of my music backed up. I guess if I format it then I can maybe start again with the loss of the music that was on there. Another option is something about defragmentation, any ideas what that is and does?

    Thanks

Hi,

Just had the same problem myself with an ihp120 I just bought off ebay. Here are the steps I took:

1.  Prolific swearing
2.  Prolonged sulk
3.  Internet research
(I assume you have already been through these 3 to get to this stage)

4. I connected it to my PC via the USB lead - I could see all the files on the ihp120 and I backed them up to my hard drive.
5. In windows I right clicked the hard drive, to do a check for errors in the hard drive and to fix them -

It got about 80% of the way through, then the battery ran out - best to check that first.  When I turned it on again, 90% of the files were back and visible on the mp3 player.

So basically, back up the files, charge it fully, do a disc error check in windows.

Good luck

How to add files to you external memory device in Windows

Below are the steps on how to add files to your external memory device like an USB Thumb drive or SD Card.

The first thing you have to do is make sure that your computer is detecting the device properly and it a drive letter is being assigned to the device in My Computer. Note if you have a lot of devices that you connect to your computer it is common that you have to go and change the drive letter of the drive so that it shows up properly in My Computer. The links below will show you how to do this.


How to change your drive letter in Windows Vista and Windows 7

How to change your drive letter in Windows XP


After you get the removable drive showing in My Computer then you can double click on the removable drive icon to open it.

Next you will want to open up the location of where your other files are located. So for example if you are wanting to access your music files and you have them saved in you’re my Music folder then open your Start menu and click on My Music. This will open another window with you’re my Music in it.

Now at this point you can copy the files 2 ways ether my right clicking on the file(s) in question and selecting copy. Then on the window for the removable drive right click and select paste. The other way is to click hold on the file(s) in question and drag then over to the removable drive. This is what is call drag and drop. Either way will work.

Note if you want to transfer files to your computer from the removable device you would do these steps in reverse.

I accidently formatted my Buffalo Ministation HDD, is there a way to fix it?


There are a few ways to undelete files after formating a Hard drive or deleting files, however note that while you might not be able to restore 100% of your files, you should be able to retrieve a few critical files or pictures.

It is important to not write any files to the hard drive at this time.
Writing files to your Hard Drive after deleting files or formatting a hard drive will reduce the amount of files you can recover. Since the Buffalo Ministation is an external hard drive, the process becomes easier than if this were an internal drive.

First off, plug the Buffalo Ministation into any USB port into your computer. Second, download Recuva. (Recuva is a free software that helps recover deleted files.) Install Recuva.

1) Close all other programs
2) Open Recuva
3) The Recuva Wizard will now appear. Click Next
4) You can now choose which file type you want to recover. Music files, image files, any files , etc. Click next when you made your choice.
5) Now you have to choose the location of the external Hard drive. If you don't know which drive letter is assigned to the the external hard drive, choose "On my media card or iPod". This will scan all external drives and devices. Alternatively, you can go to the start menu and click "My computer". When the my computer window shows up, you will see your external hard drive and a drive letter. Once you find what the drive letter is, go back to recuva and choose "In a specific location". Then click the Browse button and click the drive letter assigned to your external drive. Click next.

6) Click next on this final window.
7) The scan will now begin. Wait until the scan is over. Once the scan has completed, a list of files and their file names will appear. Next to the Filenames are icons with different colors. These colors indicate the state of the deleted file, and how well the restored condition will be. Green means the file will be perfectly intact, orange means there might be some corruption, red generally means the file may not be recovered. At this point in time you can choose which files you would like to recover. If you want to attempt to recover all files, click the the check box right next to the Filename box.

8) When you have finished selecting your files to recover, click "Recover" towards the lower right corner of the screen.
9) A box asking where you want to send the recovered files will appear. Click Desktop and make a new folder there. Call it what ever you want. Select the folder and click OK.
10) When the operation is done, a dialog box will appear telling you how long it took.
11) Check the files you have just recovered in the folder you made on the desktop

Voila, your files should be ready to be viewed. If there were files you wanted to recover that did not show up the first time, go back to step 6 and click "Deep Scan". That will take a lot longer, but should find files that did not appear before. Follow the rest of the guide as normal from step 6 onwards.

How do i download music to a 2GB Kingston Datatraveler


Hi,
Such kind of flash disks or external pen drives, shown as a new disk when you attached it to computer.

Please plug-in your kingston to usb port of your computer.
Open an file explorer (or double click on to the "my computer" icon).

You can see the drives currently attached to your system. If there is a floppy drive it named with the letter A.

Your hard disk(s) identified by the letters starting with C and CD/DVD rom D.

Your kinkston also shown with the next letter just after the HDD and CD/DVD under normal conditions.

Please click onto the letter that identifies your kingston and see the content at the right pane.

You can then copy your music files and paste into the kingston .Like normal file operations.

Hi there.

There are 2 ways to delete songs from your Sansa E260: By browsing the folders containing the songs, or by formatting the player.

To browse the player, it's important to know first that the player has 2 modes: MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) and MSC (Mass Storage1.gif Class). Music files saved on one mode would not be seen in the other mode when browsed through Windows Explorer.
You can switch modes by navigating your E260's menu using the following:

Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode

Next, plug your player in your PC and open Windows Explorer. You should first set your Explorer to "Show hidden Files1.gif and Folders" by going to the "Tools" menu (located on menu lists on Windows Explorer window), then choosing "Folder Options", then enabling the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio1.gif button

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Sansa E260 icon in Explorer as a "Portable Audio Device". Double left-click this icon to browse the player.
2. You'll find a "PPI NAND" sub-folder. Again, double left-click on this sub-folder.
3. You'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it.
4. Your music should appear as individual files or folders. Delete this to remove the file(s) from the player

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Drive letter and entitled either as a "Removable Drive" or as "Sansa E260"
2. Double left-click on this drive letter to browse the player
3. You may find your music files immediately on this folder, or you'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it and view your music files.
4. Delete the music files you want, and they should be removed from the player

Deleting files through Format:

1. Formatting the player erases all files in the player, and oftentimes this is the best option to ensure that all files are removed and any corruption eliminated. Also, it is best to format the player when in MSC mode.
2. When the appears as a drive letter (under MSC mode), right-click on that drive letter and select "Format". On the "Format" pop-up window, click "Start" to begin the format process.
3. Follow the on-screen prompts and safely remove the player from your PC when the "Format Complete" display appears.
4. Unplug the player from the PC and when the player is powered up, the message "No Files" should appear on the player's LCD screen
5. Switch the mode back to "MTP", or continue to use "MSC". Note: It is best to use "MTP" when you are transferring subscription music to the player

I hope this helps. :)

How to upload files from MP3 player to computer


Hi. To upload files from your E260 to your computer, you can do the following: Step 1: Browse the player on your Windows Explorer. Under "Windows Explorer", your player should appear as an icon under "Portable Audio Devices" or as a "Removable Drive" with a corresponding drive letter. This really depends on the mode your player is in -- MTP or MSC mode. Step 2: Set your Windows Explorer to "Show Hidden Files or Folders". The folder containing your music files on the player is a hidden folder, so make sure you go to "Tools" menu on your Explorer window, then select "Folder Options", then select the "View" tab, then enable the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button Step 3: If your player is set to MTP, you would find the sub folder called "PPI NAND". Open this folder and you would see a list of sub-folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files If your player is set to MSC, open the drive letter corresponding to your E260 and you see a list of folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files. Step 4: Select the music files you want and copy them to your local hard drive I hope the info helps.
