Why can't I no longer hear music through the earphones on my sharper image mp4 player?

Try another set of headphones to verify it's not the head phones that's the problem. If the other set of head phones don't work, then the audio output jack is the problem.

Choppy audio on Sansa e260.

To me it seems like the head phone jack is loose, it might need to be re soldered and then things would be back to normal. HOpe this works.

Videos not playing properly.

This a problem with the Sansa Media Converter program not the player. You can try reconverting the files, both in the mpeg4 program and in SMC. This a trial and error solution. Some mp4's will never sync correctly. Good luck.

Sansa audio book scramble

The Sansa orders tracks alphabetically. It goes by the track name encoded internally, not by filename. You can use Media Player or some other program to rename the track, then transfer them to the Sansa.

Sansa Updater Problem

Use the add/Remove hardware tool first

If that fails, go into Programs --> Sansa --> Uninstall

That's a new one for me - go ahead and call Sansa

Only one audio output working - not stereo!

It is the actual headset jack on the device. It wears out from plugging and unplugging the headset.

If its less than 1 year, call SanDisk and they will replace it.

Otherwise, if you are inclined, you can replace the internal headset jack.

Song sort skips but works on the computer

This is a format problem. Most likely the file (mp3 presumably) is a VBR (variable bit rate) file. Since the algorythm which calculates the next bit hexing value can be different from device to device, it may or may not play correctly with the given player in question. Windows has a much larger array of methods to handle a VBR file hence it's playback stability. If you use winamp, you will sometimes hear a squaking sound (audio artifact) or chirp for a very brief second. This "hiccup" can be recovered as winamp and similar players know how to continue reading the file. (They can parse data that was cached) Whereas the sansa's firmware for playback can be glitched in to "next tracking" the song or stalling the codec being used to convert the data into audio. (DAC conversion) To solve the problem you will need some form of audio conversion software. Soundforge is top notch for this. ( Sony bought this package off of SonicFoundry so it's not quite the same. (SonicFoundry's version was better) but you basically open the file in this program or one like it. Then click FILE then SAVE AS and a screen will let you pick the format, etc. Select MP3 for the format and 128KB for the rate. This should solve the problem. If you have the CD, rip it to wave and use a program like sound forge or Xing's AudioCatalyst to convert the CDA into MP3. Just DON'T EVER use VBR in your life EVER. Hope that helps.

Audio Problems with Sansa e260

apparently you may need to defragment your player with disk defragmenter because the mp3 has a hard time getting the pieces of your file fast enough to not hear an almost unnoticeable pop or crackle. if this isn't the reason, it is probably the jack, try a different pair of headphones even. or check the settings on the program synchronizing as it may be syncing the files at a noticeably lower sound quality. Or you are drag and dropping which may not be recommended for inexperienced users. no offence :).
