You may have to install Musicmatch and add songs through the portable device menu. It worked for me. Good luck.

Cant switch to MSC on sansa e260


Try this instead:
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Sansa M230 not seen in Explorer or Windows Media Player


We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.

Uploading songs on it


you could try putting it into recovery mode if it's like the sansa e200 series. to do this plug it into your computer and click the hold button so the orange is showing. next, hold down the record button while pushing and holding the power button at the same time. after a few seconds it should go into recovery mode and factory settings will restore. this works for sansa e200's and i hope yours is almost the same as them. try the sansa forums though they could help alot.

best of luck

Make sure the USB portion of the menu is set to MSC. This should enable your computer to recognize the player.

try to remove the battery, wait 30 seconds and replace it
this should reset your sansa,

a real hard reset isn't possible,

warning, this removes everything

To format your Sansa E200 series MP3 player:

1. Open "My Computer."

After the format, please install the latest firmware update for your player. Please visit the following link to download and upload the Firmware on your Sansa E200:
http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00...

2. Navigate to the “Settings” menu.
3. Navigate to “USB”.

My computer won't detect my music from my sansa e200 on my computer


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Can't delete songs from the e200


I had this same problem with my Sansa e280, I did some research and found that MTP mode is used when syncing with Windows Media Player.  So if you plugged in your player under MTP and simply tried to drag and drop using Windows Explorer the player won't recognize.  I have heard that you should be able to view them on the Sync tab in WMP but I personally have not tried.  

The way I got rid of the songs was by going into my Sansa Settings and changing the USB mode to MSC, opening the Player by going to My Computer, then (if using Windows XP) click on Tools > Folder Options.  Click on the View tab and Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders".  Click "OK" Then Right click on the MUSIC Folder and Select "Properties"  Uncheck "Read Only" and "Hidden".  Unplug your Player and it will restart.  Viola, no more ghosted songs.
