Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
When I plug in my device, I usually add music to it by dragging music directly into the music folder. However, one day I opened the music folder and there were a bunch of weird files and folders, none of which can be deleted or opened. These files don't show up on the player, only on the computer. Example: http://img76.imageshack.us/img76/2035/sansabugik5.jpg The other weird thing about these files is, as you can see from the picture, some of the files claim to be several gb in size, but when I right click them and go to properties, they say 0 bytes. So why are they there, and why do they claim to be so large when really they are not? I wonder if this has anything to do with my other problem, which is my problem uploading music to the player. It lets me add songs to it on the computer but they don't show up on the player. I have only used about 1.5gb out of 4 gb, so it's not a space issue. Help would be greatly appreciated. I like the device so far except for these bugs I am now getting.
I had the exact same problem so i clicked "Format" but an error occured and it couldn't be completed...now the computer won't recognize it and the files are still on there

I am having the same problem. I have tried everything short of a BIG HAMMER. It seems like there should be a way to reformat the thing back to the original out of the box state. I've removed the battery, tried locked file delete utilities, dos commands, you name it, and no change. Next step will be to call Sandisk I guess. What a pain in the keister! Any help appreciated here too!

Tips for a great answer:
Install Windows Media Player if the program is not on the computer.
Out there, it's only you and your music. No time for games. Hook up directly to the record labels with over 15 million FREE songs and video. 100% legal. 100% safe.
Put music into your Windows Music Player library. Click "File" in the top left of the program. Highlight and select "Add to Library." A window will appear.
Select the "Add" button.
Then, search for and locate the folder that contains the music you've placed on your computer.
Choose this folder and then click "OK." Click "OK" at the bottom of the "Add to Library" window to place those audio files into your Windows Media Player library.
Click "Sync" at the top of the program.
Plug the MP3 player into the computer.
Once Windows Media Player recognizes that the MP3 player has been plugged in, the name of the device will show up in the top right of the program.
Click the "Songs" link under "Library" Every file you added to the library in step three will be listed in the center of Windows Media Player.
Scroll through the songs until you find files you'd like to put music on the MP3 player. Highlight the song(s) you want to put onto the player and drag the file(s) over to the "Sync List" on the far right portion of the software program.
Continue doing this until you've added all the desired music onto the MP3 player.
Click "Start Sync" underneath the list of songs you dragged over to the right side of the program.
The music will be added to the MP3 player.
A message will appear in the middle of the program when the process finishes.
You can then disconnect your MP3 player.
hope this helps
