Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player
Here is the situation: my husband had an e250, and I was able to download music and videos to it only once. I then bought an e250 and have been able to successfully download music and videos to it several times, but now our computer will not recognize my husband's e250. The device keeps shutting on and off, the Sansa Converter program temporarily recognizes the device and then rejects it, and Windows Media Player will not recognize the device (plus the "sync" link is greyed out). Please advise as soon as possible - my husband is planning to return both devices to the store.
You need to first update your firmware with a windows based computer (one update at a time in order). This will solve a ton of issues. Finally change the "USB Mode" to "MSC" with in the settings menu and you can enjoy your player

1.) download the flash utility from the sansa home page for your device,,
2.) try flashing it then install the firmware..
If that fails then you need to hard reset it
Open it up,
Look for the largest ic on the board, usually a samsung ic
face it where you can read the text on the ic,
on the right count 4 pins down and shorth the other 4 pin with a screw driver,
while shorthjing the pin plug the usb cable in,,
You might need to fl;ash and install the firmware after you do this,,
CAUTION : ENSURE YOU GROUND pins 5 - 8 or you will get a dead player,, you might need top short it multiple times forit to work.. IF YOu kill the player you will need to continously short it until the computer reads it..
