Re: can't get installation disc to work on new macbook

The installation disk works only with PCs. The Mac is not supported by Sandisk. The e280 will work with some Macs though and only in the MSC mode. My e280v1 works with my Powerbook and my e280v2 works with my wife's I-Book. Both are running OS 10.4.11

Sansa e280

i think i had a similar problem with my e250, if you get your music from anything like "limewire" your sansa may have been infected with a virus :(

sadly, if this is the case, there is no solution

Sansa E280 isn't recognized by Vista

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:

Sansa E280 isn't recognized by Vista

I have a e250 and it works great with my laptop which is running window vista. One thing i do remember missing with is the usb setting on the mp3 player. Maybe you can try switching between the usb opinions to see if that will fix your problem. the usb setting screen is under "setting", "usb mode".
