Downloading videos


You should try using Windows media Player and Sync the device and transfer it through Windows Media Player. The files should work as .wmv. Let me know if you have questions with this or run into any problems

I can't get videos off my player!


How it up to the computer with the usb cord, once it shows connected go to (depending on the operating system)

Vista or XP
Start
Computer
Double click: Sansa
Double click: Internal Memory
(if this is where your video are saved)
or Double click on: Expansion Card

Either way, you will see all the files on your Sansa or memory card

Double click on the file; example video, the file will open and you will see all the video saved in the file; right click on the video(s) and click delete. File will be gone.

***DO NOT RIGHT CLICK THE FILE TO DELETE
THE ENTIRE FOLDER WILL DELETE ---- OPEN THE FOLDER
AND DELETE WHAT YOU WANT IN IT.

Any other problems let me know.

Deleting songs


I have the e260 4g. To delete songs I use the MSC mode, so I can see the player as a regular windows folder and then select the songs that I want to delete

Just follow the steps as indicated in

Songs are not being show (not getting detected) in the music list


k i had the same problem twice,

the first time i couldnt fix it because i ended up getting a device read error when i tried to acces it in my computer, but i think whatever caused that was different than the second time.

this time my device retained all the songs origionally on it but wouldnt reckognize any new songs. In addition to that, when i deleted all the songs off the player and only put a couple back on the player didnt register those either. so it would seem to me that it is a problem with the device's database refreshing algorithim...although thats just a guess.

neways...to fix it i copied all the data & folders off the sansa (including the .txt and .sdk files) and stored them on my desktop. After that I tried the e200 firmware upgrader available at sandisk.com

After messing around for 2 hours trying to figure out what was going on i deleted all my music, videos, recordings and pictures off the device and proceeded to format it in msc mode.

after the format was complete, i re-copied the data i had backedup on my desktop and pasted it back onto the sansa.

it seems to have worked...but then again i still don't know what caused the problem so it may not work for you. (i think it may have been something to do with one of my music files since both instances happened after i uploaded the same 5 songs onto the player)

also, i had numerous virtual folders & files that had conflicting sizes and would not open when i clicked on them (windows says they had +4GB sizes but properties says 0B also when clicked i get a file not found error).

hope this helps.

Cant delete songs


reformat it. 1. right click on my computer and select manage. 2. go to disk management on the left panel. 3. right click on the sansa icon, and go to format. 4. make sure that the file system is under FAT32. This worked for me, hope it does for you.
