Had my sansa clip for 2 years with no problems, but now when i plug it into my computer with usb cable it keeps turning off and on constantly so cannot add anymore music. Tried it with a different cable...

The thing that blows about these sansa units is unless its under warranty theres nothing you can do. Ive taken these things apart numerous times to check data cables and since its all ribbon based there is no repairing loose cables in it unfortunately.

Thats why their so cheap, Id suggest going with a higher quality unit or upgrading to a media based cell phone next

=( sorry couldnt be more help

My 8 gb sansa

Does the charging sign show up? It could be a bad cable. Also make sure you have the right software You can get it here at:
Go to Support\product support\sansa view\ thenlook in the right column

Try it with different usb ports as well.
Go to Device Manager and look for "?'s" or "!'s"

Sansa view 8 gb

I think I have a solution. If you're using Windows Media Player like you're supposed to, click the sync button in the top menu bar. if it says click here to sync device slick there and it'll pop up a menu telling you to name your Sansa and click ok and you should be good to go.

Sansa Battey

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:

Won't turn on

I've had nothing but problems with my e260 since I bought it. It's been freezing, showing corrupted album art, etc. I installed the firmware updater yesterday and today after repeately trying to get it to boot into MTC mode I got the "glowing thumbwheel, no screen" problem. I opened the back and popped the battery out for a second and put it back, and the unit started up for me. Based on past performance, I can't see it running for long, though.

No response, no turn-on, dead player! help!

Same thing just happened to my M260, did you ever get an answer? Thanks, Jeff. Problem: No response, no turn-on, dead player! help!by mtx410 on Aug 28, 2006 I was loading files, when the transfer locked up, and the computer threw an error. i couldn't do anything but unplug the player! After I did this, i tried plugging it back in, and half of the world "initializing" popped up on the screen, the first half was missing! it did not do anything more. so i unplugged it again. Now when I plug it in, nothing happens. The computer recognizes that new hardware is plugged in, but cannot recognize what it is. Nothing comes on the mp3 player's screen. It will not power up when i hit the power button. It has no response, it acts like there is no battery in it. I have taken the battery out, and put it back in. Nothing happens when any of the buttons are pressed, or when it is plugged into the computer. Is there anything I can do to get this thing working again! It is the M260 if that matters.
