Sansa e260 doesn't recognize my 8GB sandisk expansion card

Sandisk sansa e200 series players only allow up to 2GB expansion, BUT with rockbox firmware up to 32GB is available. Only download rockbox firmware if your familiar with transfering and installing files.

1 - since you really did nt delete all of rockbox (you shoud reinstall the whole thing) this will take of the system looking for it.
2 - you will have a dual boot up and a choice of which one u wish
Key Action

Power Start Rockbox
Long Power Shutdown Rockbox
On shutdown, Rockbox automatically saves its settings.

Rockbox has a dual-boot feature. To boot into the original firmware, press and hold the Left button while turning on the player.
