Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
I foolishly erased my music files directly off my Sansa e250 MP3 player (2.0GB) thinking I was just deleting the music I had stored on there. Unfortunately I seem to have deleted the 'firmware' files as well which prevents the player reading music files I load on via Windows media player?
I have read about other solutions for the e260 and tried to use the firmware solutions and I think restored the system with the latest version 01.02.18A and have 1893Mb memory and 1538mb free according to the info...BUT I know get a message "not enough space for music DB. Please remove 6MB" but the usb connection cables do not seem to recognise the Sansa and I am not sure which/how 6MB to remove?
I had the same problem and you need to do is more simple then the solution that the guys above me.
Just go to My computer right click on the divice and format and put all the music back on mp3.
It is like the solution above me so credit to him i just found out about this when i was trying to farmay like he said and it didnt work.

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.
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
