    That problem is fixed, but I cannot get rid of the Music it is all corrupted and I cannot gain access to the Music section to delete it, also formatting doesnt work.

    Well tired that, it will let me Format via WMP but nothing changes the Music is still stuck on there, it is almost as if it ignores the Music folder.

    What you will have to do is to format your device using windows media player..that will delete all the songs that you have in your device.assuming that you have windows media player 11...to format your device using windows media player 11, open it up go to the sync tab and your device should be listed on the right side..right click on the device and hit format..then unplug the device and plug it back in...

    Hope that helps..

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.

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

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.
