You can reset the player by holding the power button for 20 seconds.

It should be fine after a reset.




Best of Luck.

    You can try removing the screws in the back and take out the battery.

    But the power button reset usually always works. Try pressing it a little harder.





    Best of Luck.

    Are you using Windows Media Player, or Rhapsody to transfer the music?

  • Timothy D
    Timothy D Oct 14, 2007

    Thru My Computer?

    You should be able to just drag the music into My Computer>Device Name (e280)>Music Folder.

    If you cannot see that folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your computer.



    Best of Luck.

    keylock system shutdown?

    It means the hold switch is on at the top. slide it over and youre all good.

  • Timothy D
    Timothy D Oct 14, 2007

    Disconnect the device from your computer.

    Make sure the hold switch is not on (Orange = ON, White=OFF)

    Turn off the device, press and hold POWER button for 20 seconds.

    Turn it back on, connect it to your PC.

    Go to My Computer>Device name (e280)>Right Click on it and select format. This will delete all the music on the device.

    When you are finished formatting it, try adding new music to it.



    Let me know if that works.

  • Timothy D
    Timothy D Oct 14, 2007

    Yes, it does support pictures and videos, but you cant drag and drop them onto the device. They need to be converted first, with the Sansa Media Converter.

    It was on the CD, but you can download it from here since your dad lost the CD. :0)

    Yes, double-click the .exe

    It will install the Sansa Media Converter.

    It will put an icon on your desktop, just drag the photos or videos into the window, click convert and it will convert and transfer them to your device.

My Sansa e260 player works fine, plays my music and everything, but I have a problem with adding/deleting music. When I connected it to my computer, it did not recognize the player and it did not show up...


MSC will allow you to see the expansion card ( 2Gig E200 series 4gig Fuze) mtp won't.....MTP shows you your music folder in the media folder thats where you put your music plus expansion..... make sure your usb 2.0 driver is installed..Syncing to wmplayer puts music in the mtp music folder. change usb modes again and use the explorer to see the sansa msc lets you sync any Q/A IM or email me @ Schmead01@yahoo.com

Song Removal


Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders them selfs then format

Try and drag and drop from your music folder to the media folder on the player make sure usb mode is msc this will show you all the folders Use your windows explorer for the transfer... much easier...If you don't have copies of your music copy to a folder on the computer first
Make sure you have it in MSC usb mode
Download and install run connect sansa when asked. Link

Music won't play


Some music services have a fixed-term license that they put on the songs - you may have to resychronize the Sansa to the computer AND the music service to regain playability. Alternatively, you could have a corrupt DB already - sad, but possible. The good news is that you can fix a corrupt DB by downloading the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website. Good luck!

HELP ME PLZ


That's a pretty weird problem. The only suggestion I can give you is to check to make sure the music you put on was 1) in mp3 or wav format and 2) if this is music you have purchased, to ensure you have the rights properly set to play the music
