Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Double Songs? A few of the songs on my e260 are doubled, even though there is only one file when I check them on the computer. Also, it won't let you change the ratings of the doubled songs. The USB mode I use is MSC. Any suggestions for deleting the doubles?

    As I said, I already checked the songs on the computer, but it only shows one file. I'm pretty sure the same file is appearing twice on the sansa. Also, I can't change the rating of any of the double songs...

Aside from reformatting, try opening the device as a seperate file in Windows and delete individual music files and folders. When you first install your device on your pc the option to open this folder or keep it closed automatically is presented to you. Most users turn this option off because it's easier at first to use the media player.

1 Answer

Double Songs


Your device has 2 modes, if you transfer music in one mode, it is not visible in the other.

You need to select 1 mode Settings>Mode or USB Mode>MSC or MTP.

Connect the device to your PC. Open the device under My Computer and delete all the music.

Change the mode back to the other one and keep this as your permanent setting.

You will not see duplicates anymore.




Best of Luck.
