My Sansa Clip lost all the music I had stored. It

You go to Settings, check System Info, check number of songs in there. If they are existing, you should change to MTP or MSC to play it. Or go to Settings, Reset All, Yes. Try it.
If you accidentally formatted it, can't restore them.
Good luck

Wondering how long it takes to charge the Sansa Clip MP3?

I have had the same problem. It seems the radio never turns off and keeps drawing power. Solution: before charging, go to a song, start it playing, then pause it, then turn off the sanza clip. Plug it in and it should charge up fine.

Sansa Won't See Songs & No Longer Connects to Computer properly

Here's what happened - when he pressed format, the only OS that the device recognizes is a Windows system - you lost the Ubuntu formatting. You can try performing a firmware upgrade on the player, uninstalling all existing Sansa software from your computer, and then reinstalling the software and replugging the player into the computer.

All songs vanished after plugging into Mac

WHo knows what the Mac may have done. Try changing the USB setting from Auto to MSC.

Sansa e260 has lost my songs and other problems

Sounds like the device may be full.

The device has 2 modes, if you put music on in either mode, you cannot see it in the other.

Easiest solution is to format the device and remove everything and then transfer them back in 1 specific mode.

To format in My Computer>Device Name (e260)>Right click and select format.

Best of Luck.
