    Plug player into your computer.

    Open My Computer



    Note there should be another drive added once you open. Sometime it will say what it is and other times it will be given a letter just like your harddrive, floppy, and cdrom. The extra drive should be the player.



    Right click and go to Format...

    It should bring up the Format Display



    You can do a Quick Format if you like just make sure the check mark is in the box.

    I suggest you make sure there are no check marks in any of the 2 boxes. This way it does a thorough Format.



    Now just click Start



    This should format the player for you.



    Hope this helps.

My sansa e260 wont show the songs i just added from my comp


On your player, try going to Settings, USB Mode, and switch it to MSC if you didn't. Now plug your player in and go to "My computer", and open up your player. It is now used as a storage device, but you can still edit the music section (including the video section). Now try deleting all the music inside and create a new folder for your music. Now drag all your music files inside the folder you just made (this will not affect your album, genre, etc categories). After that, unplug your device and try the music files to see if they work. If they still don't work, I suggest you just format (reset) your player. To do that, simply plug your device on your computer. Then go to "My Computer" and when you see the device there, right click it and click on "Format...". Before that, if you don't want to loose any of your files (music, video, etc), I suggest you store them in your PC and put them back in your player after the reset.

Hi there.

There are 2 ways to delete songs from your Sansa E260: By browsing the folders containing the songs, or by formatting the player.

To browse the player, it's important to know first that the player has 2 modes: MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) and MSC (Mass Storage1.gif Class). Music files saved on one mode would not be seen in the other mode when browsed through Windows Explorer.
You can switch modes by navigating your E260's menu using the following:

Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode

Next, plug your player in your PC and open Windows Explorer. You should first set your Explorer to "Show hidden Files1.gif and Folders" by going to the "Tools" menu (located on menu lists on Windows Explorer window), then choosing "Folder Options", then enabling the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio1.gif button

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Sansa E260 icon in Explorer as a "Portable Audio Device". Double left-click this icon to browse the player.
2. You'll find a "PPI NAND" sub-folder. Again, double left-click on this sub-folder.
3. You'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it.
4. Your music should appear as individual files or folders. Delete this to remove the file(s) from the player

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Drive letter and entitled either as a "Removable Drive" or as "Sansa E260"
2. Double left-click on this drive letter to browse the player
3. You may find your music files immediately on this folder, or you'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it and view your music files.
4. Delete the music files you want, and they should be removed from the player

Deleting files through Format:

1. Formatting the player erases all files in the player, and oftentimes this is the best option to ensure that all files are removed and any corruption eliminated. Also, it is best to format the player when in MSC mode.
2. When the appears as a drive letter (under MSC mode), right-click on that drive letter and select "Format". On the "Format" pop-up window, click "Start" to begin the format process.
3. Follow the on-screen prompts and safely remove the player from your PC when the "Format Complete" display appears.
4. Unplug the player from the PC and when the player is powered up, the message "No Files" should appear on the player's LCD screen
5. Switch the mode back to "MTP", or continue to use "MSC". Note: It is best to use "MTP" when you are transferring subscription music to the player

I hope this helps. :)
