Re: videos

A cuz i aint get a cd either but i follwed these directions and it now works good:

If you have an E260 v2 and your computer won't recognize it, do the following:
1) Download the sansa firmware updater from the sandisk website (
2) The program then turn off your sansa. (unplug it first).
3) Now move the hold button to the right and then hold down the center (round) button and then the power button.
4) Once your sansa is on, you can stop pressing the other buttons.
5) Now plug in your sansa.
6) Once this is done, your firmware updater should automatically start. If it doesn't, go to C:\programfiles\sandisk\.... and open it.
7) Select the most recent firmware and download it (it should automatically install).
8) Once this is done, disconnect your mp3 player (your firmware will then update).
9) Turn your mp3 player off.
10) Turn your mp3 player on.
11) go to Settings, USB Settings, and select MSC.
12) plug your MP3 player back into your computer and it should now recognize it.

Re: videos

You need to use the sansa media converter program that came with the sansa on the CD. This is used for photos1.gif and for video. The supported files are listed on the screen once you open it.You shouldnt have any problems transferring music to it using that program

I cannot add videos to my sansa e260 4 GB media player

Are you syncing the videos through Sansa Media Converter? This is the only program that will work to put video on the E200 series Sansa's.

If you are using SMC try using "Any Video Converter" to make the mp4's then sync them through SMC.

Put the e260 into MSC mode so it looks like a USB hard disk. Then you can drag/drop videos onto the e260. More about it here

So you should not need a special driver to do this. If you want to watch Windows DRM-protected files then you will have to reload the driver and get Windows Media Player up to date :-(
