Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

PC does not recognize the player when hooked up to the USB port to download music.

I had the problem before and someone from sansa guided me through, to fix it. Something in my computer had been turned off, and I had to turn it back on, but I don't remember the steps. After it was turned back on, I could download music into the MP3 player, but it must have switched back automatically. I appreciate your help. Thank you. Kurt Fuellemann

How do I remove music from it


Hello

Connect the USB cable to your Sansa MP3 player, then hook the other end to a free USB port on your computer.

Give the computer time to recognize the Sansa MP3 player. Once it has, double-click on the MP3 player's icon to view the music files stored to memory.

Scroll through the list of audio files until you find the ones that you wish to delete from the Sansa MP3 player.

Click on single items or click and lasso multiple files.

Right-click on the highlighted files to pull down an action list and from there select Delete. The computer will ask if you really want to throw the file away. Select OK.

Exit from the window, then disconnect the USB cable from the Sansa MP3 player. The player will automatically turn off. The memory will update the first time you turn the player on after deleting songs.

  • Unlike other documents and files, once the music file hits the Recycle Bin, it’s gone. Make sure that you are deleting the correct file.
