I've had this Sansa e260 for a year or so now. When I listen to the music on it the audio is very choppy. Just today I noticed it getting worse. And also when I adjust the volume it clears up some, but still alittle choppy, then as soon as the screen goes blank (To go into screen save mode) it goes choppy again.

Check you have not got a lot of programs auto-starting and running in the background.
Press control/Alt and delete keys together and pick task manager.
Then have a look at the services running sorted by % CPU time, then you should find your culprit.
If all media players are closed, Open the Control Panel> Sounds> open, click on configure, test. Any Problem? Now when you say "choppy sound" The audio is on what, using what? With limited info it's difficult to give a informed solution. FOR INSTANCE, I was watching a movie/music, online video, youtube....etc. with (your software) and the sound was choppy. Or, I was on IE and watching a Video, music, etc. Lets say you open Itunes and play a song, sound is choppy?
I'm a video game programmer with 20 years experience in software, and have a reasonable understanding movie playback software.
I also have a Nikon (S6100) and the problem is nothing to do with PC memory or CPU speed. The Nikon creates a broken version of the MPEG-4 AVC H.264 format, which results in choppy playback. I've tried Quicktime, VLC and the cameras own player - ViewNX2 - same result for all of them.
Converting the buggy .MOV files the Nikon creates to a .avi format produces perfectly smooth (flawless) video, but with the sound out of sync. I can also create perfect quality (lower res) DVD video, but with the sound missing.
I have spoken to Nikon about all this and they are quite simply clueless and will take no responsibility. As there is no firmware up[date for this camera I'm taking the camera back, as it is basically flawed.
I've read a few sites with customers complaining about choppy video for this camera, so it looks like the model itself is flawed.
How much memory do you have in your pc? Sometimes if you are running windows and media player, your memory is streched if you don't have alot on board. I recommend going to 2GB if you are running Vista.
