Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
You have put too many songs on the device.
It needs some free space to create the Music Database or the Artist, Album, Song information.Generally between 6 - 10 MB for each GB of music on the device is sufficient.
If it shows up in My Computer, you can manually delete some files from the MUSIC folder.
If not, you can use the following software to erase everything and start over.
Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.
You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.
- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.
Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.
Best of Luck.
