I connect sansae260 to PC, Nothing apears on Sansa's Screen

You may need to now reset the player, that may have been a bit much for it.
To reset your Sansa Mp3 player.
  1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds.
  2. Release the Power switch.
  3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.

Sandisk e260 froze after power up.

sounds like a firmware program problem and will have to be replaced. You could download an updated firmware but you will have to get a pc connection. 
After your device is plugged in, are you able to go to  "my computer" and see a drive folder that has your device on it.

Sansa e260 will not power up

Okay what you do for this is hold down the power button for 20-25 seconds or so. This will reset your Sansa e260 and then it will power up like normal. I have had this problem before. If that doesn't work then I don't know what will.

E260 shows 0 MB memory and 0 MB free space after recovery

Look, I think the best thing to do is to return the product. Normally, they gave you a new one. My old one broke with a blank screen. So the bestbuy guy talked to his manager and gave me a new one.

Sansa e260 - memory gone?

Have you tried re-formatting while in MSC mode? I've had quite a bit of success with repairing some memory issues with simple reformat. (Fat32). My wife's was showing almost no memory and no music at all. I reformatted and reloaded her music and it works great!

My sansa e260 stopped working after unsuccessful formatting

I have guys, I just spoke with the Sansa representative. Even if you have Windows Vista, you do not need a drive for e260 given that Vista carries that drivers for it. If you have tried the steps above, but you Sansa still did not format successfully after using the recoverty tool. This is what you do:

Set you Sansa e260 in recovery mode

- set it to hold
- hold rec
- connect to computer while you are holding rec
- device should be now in recovrey mode
- go to my computer
- go to the folder 16B format
- you will see a text file
- don't worry about
- add a new folder and name Sansa.fmt
- wait up to 2 minutes
- message on your device should say formatting
- wait a few minutes for formatting to take place
- stop the device by removing it safely using windows Safely device removal tool on bottom right corner of your screen
- disconneting your Sansa and you should see a message upgrade finished, Sansa has been restored or something like that
- Power your Sansa on, and Bwala!!! your Sansa is back to normal.

Good luck

Computer will not recognize

Did you check in Device Manager to see if the device has any errors listed? With the device connected Right Click on Computer>Properties>Hardware Tab>Device Manager button. Check for any red or yellow errors on the Sansa device. If there are errors, right click on it and select uninstall. Disconnect the device and then reconnect it to your computer. If thats not it, do you have Administrator Rights on the PC? If not you will need to switch to Administrator account and follow the steps at the top. You can add to this question for more assistance. Best of Luck.

Sansa e260 4 gb mp3 player

You could reinstall the firmware (what makes the sansa work). Its pretty easy to do, no need of downloading/installig, its already all in the sansa. You just need a computer How do I restore the firmware Firstly, place the e260 in restore mode. To do this, follow these steps 1. Push the Hold button on top of the e260 to the right. 2. Hold in the record button 3. Press and release the Menu button 4. The device will now go into Restore Mode. If you have not already connected the USB cable to your PC, it will direct you to do so. 5. The root directory of the device will open up on the PC screen. Now drag and drop the two files Firmware into into the e260 root directory. You will find a copy of the two firmware files zipped up elsewhere on these forums 6. Push the Hold button on the e260 back to the left 7. Unplug the USB cable from the PC. The e260 will now reboot, writing the new firmware images to the correct location. 8. This process will have wiped all your music files. You will now need to re-synch.

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".
