Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Freezing problem Hi, I apologize if this has already been asked. I just recently bought a Sansa e260 (last week) and the thing itself I have not been having any problems with, but when it comes to connecting, I am constantly having problems. First night, it worked fine when I plugged it in under MTP mode. When I tried to plug it in under MSC mode, it wouldn't work. It kept saying there was a problem with the hardware. So I formatted it and it worked fine with both modes. However, now everytime I am using it in MTP, it freezes whenever I disconnect it from my computer and I have to reset it. No problem with MSC. I would try to update it, but I think it may already be up to date. It says I have version 01.02.18A. I have less than 2 weeks to decide whether or not to keep this player or take it back to the store. I hate to take it back because when it works, it's great! But it's getting to be really annoying having to reset it constantly, particurlarly since MTP is the mode I prefer to use. Any help or suggestions? Thank you so much.

    Well, now I had another problem. I plugged it into my computer with a half a battery left to charge and three hours later it still remained at 50% full. So I had to format it AGAIN and now it seems to be charging okay.

    But here is the odd part. Before I formatted it again, I had plugged it in in MTP mode, disconnected it and it did not freeze on me like it has been. I plugged it in again and disconnected it several times and no freezing.

    What I am wondering and no one else has been able to help me with this- could there be songs on there that could be messing up the internal system?

    Also....yeah this is a really dumb question, but will the battery display some kind of sign when it is done charging? Because I can plug mine in with a full charge but it will still show it charging.

    Forgot to mention that it will not charge in MTP mode only. It still will charge if I plug it in MSC.

    Awarty- Well....I did look at it, but the Zune was a bit out of the price range I was looking for. And the one time I did see one for $100 in a ad magazine, they were gone before I even got the advertisement. I'm looking at the Sony Walkman or an Apple refurbished Nano right now.

Sometimes holding the power button for about 30 seconds will make it reset itself. Then you can push the power button again to turn it on. It works for me so you might as well give it a try.

The chip may be locked - consult the documentation for details. Also, that card is too big for the e260 to read - 2GB or less.

Hellp !

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:
