Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

E260 player won't read some songs

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?

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.

Half of song list not recognized by Sansa e260


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.

Problem recognizing songs in sansa e260 mp3 player.


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.

Hope everything works,

Intermittent playback issue- weird "underwater" sounds?


The issue you have described with your portable device in most cases can be resolved by formatting your device. Please follow these steps even if you have already attempted them once before.





Please note that this will remove all music from your device.





Formatting the device in Windows Media Player





1. Open Windows Media Player with your MP3 player connected to the computer





2. At the top of windows Media Player select the Sync tab at the top





3. The MP3 player should be recognized on the right hand side and say "Your Player Name"





4. Above the player name is a button that says "Format Storage Media" click this button to erase all the data from the player





5. Continue with the acknowledgement of erasing all data on disk.
