Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
My Sansa e260 is not showing the music that I put on there. I will use Windows Media Player and syncronize music onto it. When I look at the music I have on my sansa when it's hooked up, by going to my computer, it shows the music I just downloaded onto it. When I unplug it and try to listen to the newly downloaded music, though, nothing shows up. It's like the music wasn't ever downloaded onto it. It was working fine before, but recently it's been doing this. I've even tried using a different computer, but the same thing happens. Please help me. Much thanks if you can help!!!
I had the same problem w/ my first MP3 player. Turns out it only took Mp3 format files and not WMA, which is the format of music I loaded on there. All you do is make sure your files are the correct format that your MP3/ipod supports and you will be fine. If you rip CDs and put the music on your Mp3/ipod, then there should be a toggle on the media player you rip with to switch the music file format to the one that is supported on your player. That is all I know about this situation, so please try it. Happy 2 help, sincerely, Child of the 21st Century (age 11)

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
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: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
