These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
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: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

How to charge the Sandisk 4.0 GB sansa Rhapsody e260R .. I do not know anything about it..


There should have been a cord included with the Sansa. It has a standard USB connector on one end and a rather flat connector marked "Sansa" on the other other end. This end goes into the slot at the bottom of the Sansa, with the "Sansa" label up (on the same side as the screen on the Sansa). The other end goes into a USB connector on a computer. Leave the computer powered on to deliver power to the Sansa.

You can download a copy of the manual from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.sansa.com

Through the menu system on the Sansa, change your transfer setting from MTP to UMS. When you connect your Sansa, you should now see a drive in My Computer into which you can drag and drop music files.

DELETING VIDEOS FROM MY MP3


Below are the instructions. I hope I've made them clear enough!
Make sure your device is under MSC instead of MTP...To do that go under Menu, settings and then usb mode...
--

Step 1
Open up Windows Explorer: Start > Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer

Step 2
On the right of Windows Explorer, click on My Computer

Step 3
You should see two devices after your CDROM drive. One will be SANSA E260R and the other will be Sansa e200R Rhapsody. Chose the one on the top; the one that doesn't say Rhapsody. It may say E250R, E260R, E270R, or E280R depending on which model you have.

Step 4
Once you're viewing the device, you'll see the folders: PHOTO and VIDEO. These are the folders that contain your photos and videos. For videos, you can simply remove the video you want to delete - it will completely remove it.

I hope that helps

Sansa e260...bad software


Ok, so I feel like an idiot....
The software did in fact get downloaded....the problem was me...(of course!)
I went to Settings on my mp3 player and went to Mode and somehow it had gotten switched from Rhapsody to the PlaysForSure mode. In the PlaysForSure mode it acts like a "normal" mp3 player and will not sync with Rhapsody....so my Rhapsody software wasn't needed in this mode. After I switched it to the Rhapsody mode everything worked like it was supposed to with my mp3 player.
The Sansa Sandisk e260r is a great little mp3 player. Everytime I've had problems with it...it's been me not understanding it.
Thanks!
