Sansa e260 settings problems

Resently when I power the thing up I get ask to pick a language which I do, but it ask me everytime I power it up. So I go and reset all and it still needs me to pick a language when I fire this puppy up. So I decide to format it, and I notice that the usb always defaults back to MTP which I don't recal it doing before. I'm basicly out of ideas on how to make the thing work the way it did when I bought it. help if you can

Stuck in language mode

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:

Microsoft asks for a certificate for sansa e260

Try uninstalling and reinstalling your windows media player software. If you have a card inserted on your player it would normally do that refresh database. If not try updating the firmware of the player.

Not saving settings...

You may need to take this to a SanDisk employee or updating your firmware again. (This means waiting for a newer firmware version of Sansa e260, they may have fixed up the bugs once they have a new update.) If you have used a SanDisk microSD on this device that has been formated, please do not use it again. The microSD is not a good accersory. It'll be worth it if you're sure that you can reinstall the Sansa each time it crashes, find a more stable software if you're not willing to risk it.
