Sansa e280 malfunction

I connected my sansa e280 into my computer to copy some music files and the computer said it did not recognize my player. I unplugged it from the computer and then I plugged it back in. The Sansa e280 then went to a blank backlit screen and it will not respond.

Plug the player into the computer and hold the power button down for a few seconds until you see the player come on like normal, its a reset function and you should see your songs

I re-formatted my Sansa e280 and now my computer does not recognize it. I am wanting to transfer music files only, using Windows Media Player.

Try to reset the device and if there is any driver for it, install them before connecting it to the computer.

Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -

Check My Computer. If the PC recognises the Sansa player then simply add the songs by dragging the files into the player's icon on My Computer. Sometimes this kick starts the built in software included on the mp3 player.

Bad Tracks

For the bad tracks go Under Settings, look for Mode or USB Mode. Put the unit in MSC (if that's available) or Rhapsody.

Connect it to the computer. See what driveletter it is :F: Sansa E280...G: Sansa E280... whatever it is.

Click Start/Run and type in chkdsk F:/f (or G: or whatever the letter is) . That will check and may fix the bad files.

I hope that helps

Sansa E280 isn't recognized by Vista

I have a e250 and it works great with my laptop which is running window vista. One thing i do remember missing with is the usb setting on the mp3 player. Maybe you can try switching between the usb opinions to see if that will fix your problem. the usb setting screen is under "setting", "usb mode".
