You go to settings/usb mode, and change to MTP or MSC. If your settings don't show USB mode, you have to update to the latest firmware. If you have an E250, the video converter program will still probably not recognize the player. If you figure out how to get it to do so, please let us know.

Okay what you do for this is hold down the power button for 20-25 seconds or so. This will reset your Sansa e260 and then it will power up like normal. I have had this problem before. If that doesn't work then I don't know what will.
STEP 2 - Update to the latest firmware You may need to upload the firmware manually, there are instructions on the links below on how to manually update your firmware - Sansa Fuze firmware update - Sansa View firmware update - Sansa e200 series firmware update - Sansa c200 series firmware update
Hi, 1. Make sure you Windows Media Player 11 (Goto Help --> About WMP --> v??)2. If you do not have it, install it from this location: http://www.microsoft.com/mediaplayer3. Change the Mode on Device: Go into Menu --> Settings --> USB Mode:Auto Detect/MTP/MSC 4. Select MSC and it should work. If it does not try Powercycling your device (turn it off and then turn it on). 5. Try other modes as well. Keep the device in AutoDetect Mode and follow the instructions below:
i. Connect your Device ii. Right click on My Computer and select Manage iii. Select Device Manager iv.

If you didnt delete the music from your trial subscription with Rhapsody, they are still on the device, taking up space.
Your device will allow any type of music to be transferred, it doesnt have to be specifically from Rhapsody.
Best idea is to "format" the device to remove everything and try transferring the music onto the device.
Connect the device and go to My Computer>Device Name, then right click on the device and select format. This will erase everything.
If you are not able to format the device, change the mode, then try again. Device>Settings>mode or USB Mode.
Reply if you have more problems.
Best of Luck.
If you cannot change the "modes", you will have to put it into recovery mode to fix it.
You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.
- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.
Download and run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.
Best of Luck.
