Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
Ok newE-260. WMP 11 can not get wmp 10 to load. Recorded a bunch of brand new cd's, tried Rhapsody, then Drag and drop, then winamp, Yahoo music box. MC mtp whadda F__is that crap. Treid both ways. Funny some willbe there and if shuufle I get the box but it goes away and the music plays. Next song is usually from same artist.
Someone got an easy fix to prevent THE DREADED RED BOX with BAD TRACK in it.
I am going back to WMP 9 unless you gurus out there have A fix that works.
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.
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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
