My computer wont recognize my sansa e260

We just recently had our computer fixed. the hard drive was fried, but now things are ok with the computer itself, except that everytime i try to connect my mp3 player, the computer makes the sound that indicates connection, but doesnt do anything else, ie, allow windows media player to recognize the player so i can music onto it. im at my wit's end.

Make sure USB mode is MSC....If this doesn't work make sure that you are connected to a 2.0 USB port....I had to install the update on to my labtop and finally it recognized it and updated....
Download Update if you haven't yet(http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe)
Then connect to your computer and see if it works
Hope it does..........Please rate

To change to MSC, go to settings, scroll down to USB Mode, and choose MSC. You should be good to go then.

Cannot get my computer to recognize my sansa e260 player


I cannot get my desktop to find a driver for the e260, but if you use the SD microdisk you can load stuff to the microdisk if you have a card reader. You need to buy the full size SD card with the micro SD attached. Then sync the stuff you want to load and when you boot up your player, it will refresh the data base and you can play the stuff on your card. Seems a shame to waste 4 gigs of hard drive on the player, but I do not know anyone who has found a driver for the e260 that works with XP service pack 2. If you do please send me an email me.

My computer wont detect my player


This is actually not a solution, but to let you know that my Sansa E260 is acting exactly the same. I called Sansa's support and we did a lot of things including updating the firmware and going into the Recovery Mode. Unfortunately, Sansa could not figure out a solution to my problem (computer does not recognize it). I have loaded videos, taped voice reminders, loaded MP3s on to the MicroSD, set up my radio stations, etc. Everything works, except now, I can't seem to get my computers (yes, plural) recognize this device. Sansa said that I should return it to the store and get it replaced while it is under warranty. Thanks. Manny

Sansa e260 says connected but device not recognized


I agree with the above suggestion. Try setting the USB Mode under "Settings" on "MSC" on the Sansa. My computer would not recognize the e260 when the mode was set to "MTP"; works fine on "MSC".
