Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

MP3 player The preloaded 32 hours of music in my SanDisk Sansa (E280?) MP3 player is no longer available to me. Do I have to subscribe to Rhapsody to recover it or just register with them? If I don't want to subscribe, can I remove the music from my disk space so I can access all 4 gigs?

Re: MP3 player

You can just delete the music from the player and load whatever you want.
You should put the player in MSC mode and delete the music

How can you tell if it is a version 1 or 2?

Sansa e200 series has 3 not interchangeable versions of firmware:
  • version 1: e200, firmware starts with
  • version 2: e200v2, firmware starts with
  • version rhapsody: e200r, firmware starts with
Site for the difference between these versions:

The exact type should be on the back of the player: model e280R.
For the rhapsody there is only 1 firmware available.
The zip file can be downloaded here:

When another firmware is needed, go to the download firmware wizard on next page and select your model:

Bad Tracks

For the bad tracks go Under Settings, look for Mode or USB Mode. Put the unit in MSC (if that's available) or Rhapsody.

Connect it to the computer. See what driveletter it is :F: Sansa E280...G: Sansa E280... whatever it is.

Click Start/Run and type in chkdsk F:/f (or G: or whatever the letter is) . That will check and may fix the bad files.

I hope that helps

Sansa E280 MP3 Player has problem synchronising playing songs

Make sure your Rhapsody subscription is paid and up to date - if it ever lapses you will lose the songs. also, check out the License tab under properties for the songs that failed - the license may have a fixed-term/expiration date and can no longer be synced without paying $$. Rhapsody sucks like that.

Do not use Rhapsody. See if you can get the downloaded songs from Rhapsody to Widows Media Player or another downloading program. If you need any help update the problem.
Good Luck

I dont no how to download

ben there are actually two modes of transfer the player is using. The first is by choosing MSC/Rhapsody on the player. You can drag and drop songs to the player provided they are not purchase from any online music stores like rhapsody, bestbuy music, or The other mode is MTP/Plays for Sure you can transfer songs to the player using windows media player 11 software or any mtp softwares. You can use this link for more instructions then choose support then softwares and user manual then choose your model then on the right window click on the link How to Videos.

Cannot create playlist

You must be in MTP mode, create a sync list in WMP, then drag the play list to the sync list of the e-280. it will create the new playlist on the e280.

Will eventually lose songs downloaded?

Okay, here's what i've encountered:  songs that I downloaded on rhapsody, without purchasing, only lasted about 7-10 days unless i reconnected.  once my trial period ended, i lost all the songs.  songs that i've purchased i've had no trouble (although if you load them to the sansa immediately after download, you may get the same message.  its best to wait at least 24 hours).  good luck

Synchronize to continue your music subscription

Do you have an account with Rhapsody? The preloaded music is part of the Rhapsody subscription service. If you dont have an account, you will receive that message until you delete the preloaded music, or subscribe to the Rhapsody Service. Best of Luck.
