Ok, when i got it, it was working all right but after about a year, eventhough the device isn't full, it won't sync files. i can't even copy and past the songs into it. so i thought maybe if i erased all of the songs i could erase the virus i had put into it but now that all of the songs have been erased, the device still won't allow me to sync songs into it. not even the ones that i erased. can any1 help me with this problem? Mine does the same thing, were you able to figure out what it was.

The Mach Speed Eclipse 180 isn't compatible with ITunes despite what you heard. However all hope isn't lost.
If you are using Microsoft windows simply use the sync feature in Windows Media Player. If you are using a mac, the player displays as a removable device, simply drag the music into the mp3 or music folder.
Disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player to solve the problem.
Disable Auto-Sync in Windows Media Player 11 – go to Microsoft's website for pictorial demonstration Major Symptom: The Mp3 player is adding (or deleting) songs that I don’t want onto the player Major Solution: Open Windows Media Player WITH the mp3 player connected Move the mouse cursor over to the Sync tab Click on the tiny black arrow underneath the word “Sync” to bring down a drop-down menu Select Set Up Sync (this option will not appear if your mp3 player is not connected to the computer) Uncheck box that says "automatically sync files to device" Click OK to finish Voila! You are now set up for manual sync instead of auto-sync. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 in XP does not create Playlist on my MP3 MTP device. I have a Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 but I think my problem and its solution could also apply to other MP3 players that don't receive Playlists from WMP. And perhaps to Vista and Windows 7? When I connected my WALKMAN to my PC and used WMP to Sync (transfer) Playlists to it, the songs were correctly Synched but no Playlists were created on my WALKMAN. My problem was that Windows had installed the wrong driver for my WALKMAN. Here is how I diagnosed and fixed the problem. DIAGNOSIS: When I used WMP to Sync, the picture in WMP's right hand window was a generic MP3 device. It should have looked like my WALKMAN NWZ-S544. When I looked at the device drivers, I couldn't find a driver for my WALKMAN NWZ-S544 under Portable Devices, but instead found a non-MTP Walkman listed as a USB Mass Storage Device. (See Fix explanation for how to look at device drivers.) Fix: To fix the problem I first uninstalled the incorrect driver and then installed the correct driver. Here's how…
I disconnected all MP3 players and USB devices (Key/thumb/External Hard drives, etc) from my PC.
I opened the Device Manager. Right-click My Computer-Click Properties.-Click Hardware Tab-Click Device Manager. No Portable Devices were showing. Click the + to the left of the Universal Serial Bus Controllers heading and there was one USB Mass Storage Device but it was for an irrelevant memory card reader on my PC that I can't disconnect.
I connected my Walkman. Looking at the Device Manager, I see that one new USB Mass Storage Device is now showing, I right click-Properties and it describes it as a Compatible USB storage device (Walkman). This is my problem. Windows is using an older Walkman driver. My Walkman driver should be for a MTP device.
I again right click the Walkman USB storage device and click Uninstall. I click OK to Confirm Device Removal. The Device Manage no longer shows my Walkman which has now turned itself off.
I disconnect my Walkman and then reconnect it. Windows gives me the message that I have installed new hardware. The Found New Hardware Wizard starts. I click "No, not this time" and then Next. I click "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and then Next. I click "Don't search. I will chose the driver to install." and then Next. I click "Show compatible hardware" and I select "MTP Device" under Model and then Next. Windows then finds the appropriate driver for my Walkman and I'm done.
VERIFICATION: To verify that it is properly installed, look in the Device Manager under Portable Devices (while your Walkman is connected). Click + and you should see:"Walkman NWZ-S544". Or simply look under Name in My Computer and you should see an entry for Walkman NWZ-S544, and an icon that looks like your Walkman. Everything should now work properly.
By default the device is in MPT mode. In this mode you need to use media player or rhapsody or Samsung's own media software to transfer files. You need to have the music on your laptop. Once on the laptop you can edit the details - name, artist, etc to whatever you like. You can then drag it onto the player and it will keep those settings. remember to delete the files with the details you don;t want from the player
Go into my computer you will see yp-k3 device in the listing. You can edit the names directly this way but you cant move them to a folder.
Select all music while on you windows and right click on them , then go to "Summary" tab. Check if your music's dates are right.
If not Ok. then check the date settings with your Sansa e280.
If all dates are set .. then you should have the your music working fine.
Not working ? I recommend a firmware update.
