Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Music files won't show up

I've been adding songs to my Sansa e260 and have had no trouble. Unfortunately, the last batch of songs that I added are showing up on my player when it's hooked up to the computer, however, when I try to play them, they don't show up. Why are these selected songs not showing up? How can I fix this? Thanks

Re: music files won't show up

Is your device almost full? The player needs sever MB's of space to create the database or menu, for you to navigate with. Try deleting some music, then restart the device. Best of Luck.

Edit the Id3 tags manually - takes time, but if you have THAT type of computer config, then there's just no other way.
