    Put the e260 into MSC mode so it looks like a USB hard disk. Then you can drag/drop videos onto the e260. More about it here

    So you should not need a special driver to do this. If you want to watch Windows DRM-protected files then you will have to reload the driver and get Windows Media Player up to date :-(

    E260 installation problem

    Actually, the disk that comes with the sansa e260 is really only for putting videos on it. The player will add any music put on regularly. The disk is a software that converts certain file types into others so the player can play them. Music is mostly .mp3 files if you get them from cds( in my experience) so you should hve no problem. If you still need help, here's a link.
    This person knows what they're talking about. There's also the Sandisk website for troubleshooting.
