I bought a refurbished e260, and I know it's not perfect, but it really ticks me off that it won't recognize or play some of my songs. They are all mp3s and there's nothing wrong with any of the songs because they play on other mp3 players. But a portion of the songs I uploaded onto the sansa appear on the player as "unknown" and they won't play. Is there any way I can fix this?

Re: e260 player won't read some songs
Check if the size of the disk is actually what they say it is because I have seen where 1gb was written on an mp3 player whereas it was stretched, e.g, 128mb might be stretched to 1gb, so whenever you put songs that exceeds 128mb the other ones will not play at all. It has happened to me several times.

i will surely help you. you have mentioned that you can see all the songs when your mp3 player is connected to the computer. so what you can do is, you can very well go ahead & format all the songs in your mp3 player using your computer. then you transfer a few songs to your mp3 player(the songs which were not getting recognized in your mp3 player). this should solve your problem.
umm dude if u have the disks and stuff install them. ummmmm also sync is to put the songs on the player like save them on their. also try using windows media player, in the top right corner it will say ur device name, then fill in all the songs below it(so copy and paste). and then sync them. good luck dude.!
From what I'm hearing you don't have a good driver. If you still have the disk use that. If not google it or something. I have a Sansa e260 as well so I would suggest loading the songs on in windows media player rather that windows explorer. If you open Media Player and then go to sync and it does not recognize your device, then you have a bad driver. If not, then start syncing your songs that way.
The Sansa is unfortunatley one huge mess up the programming has failed its working on a database with only 4 levels but for grphics and songs you need at least 7 lhopefully you can return it and get another if not you can try putting another type of chip hopefully that will work
