Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

Computer will not regognize Sansa e260 at all

The player did not come with a CD so I downloaded the driver from the Sansa website and an MTP browser from Microsoft. I still can't get my computer to recognize the player. When I plug in the player and the wizard box comes up, I choose to install it and get the message that a problem occurred. HELP?

Maybe the problem is not the player or what you are downloading but the program you are using to get the music on your player. I had a similar problem and I just had to use a different program to load my music.

Trying to add 4 GB microSDHC card to sandisk sansa e260. connect e260 to computer via USB. insert micro card. computer does not recognize microcard. why?


Hello,

The player automatically connects to the computer in Media Transfer Protocol mode (MTP mode).
For accessing the microSD card in the player, the USB connection in the player has to be set to MSC mode, see:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/167

How to change USB mode for the e200 series, proceed as next:
1. From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
2. Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC.
Manuals for the e200 series:

I BOUGHT SANSA E260 (REFURB)PLAYER.MY PC IS NOT DETECTING IT . I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY INSTALLATION CD.SOLVE MY PROBLEM


gET SOFTWARE FROM sANSA WEBSITE

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
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/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Refurib - sansa e260 - need vista driver


Go to settings, usb mode and change it to msc. Then it will show up as a drive and you can drag songs to your music folder. I just updated my firmwareand now it's loading in MTP mode so Windows Media Player can load it etc.

Computer doesn't detect device in MTP mode


If you are using a front USB port on your computer, try using One in the rear that is connected directly to the motherboard. It worked on mine!

Sansa e260 says connected but device not recognized


I agree with the above suggestion. Try setting the USB Mode under "Settings" on "MSC" on the Sansa. My computer would not recognize the e260 when the mode was set to "MTP"; works fine on "MSC".
