Question about SanDisk Sansa e270 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Songs don't exist on player but can be seen when connected to pc

I uploaded a large number of songs onto the player and it worked fine until i updated the firmware. The songs previously uploaded simply didn't exist on the player. It was completely empty.

Going to the "Settings > Info" section, the free memory reflects the space taken up by the songs, but the number of songs is 0.

Also, when the player is connected to the PC, the songs are all there, in the "music" section, as before.

Would like to know what I can do to "get my songs back", thanks! I could format it and upload again, but I'd like to know if this is going to happen everytime I do a firmware update.

MP3 player suddenly not connecting


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Coby's website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

M4002 RCA Opal says it is now playing, but doesn't move forward


Many updates end up deleting all songs off your player as a side effect - try reloading your songs onto the Opal and see if they will play after that.

Also, make sure the hold/lock switch wasn't accidentally activated.

Another possibility is that one of the updates made a change to which DRM licenses the player is compatible with. If you have songs with an older DRM-9 license, they may not be usable after the update. which music service do you get your songs from? If it is a licensing issue, then I would try loading only songs that are in mp3 format - they will never give you funky issues.

Songs on computer, but not on Sansa


Very interesting. What program do you use to transfer files to your Sansa? Windows Media Player? Windows Explorer (drag and drop)?
If they are Mp3 format, then the format is correct - we can rule that out.
Unplug, retry failed, so we can rule out read errors.

You could try switching the player manually from mtp to msd mode, or vice versa - see your manual for details. One mode displays music files - the other mode hides them (which is why I don't like dual-mode players).

The database could have become corrupt - this can occur for a variety of reasons, but one reason is that this player was loaded on a machine running Windows Media Player 11. Have you updated the firmware for this device?

My RCA TH11 has stopped working. at first the player would automatically delete songs from the player after i downloaded new songs. i finally got tired of it and erased all the songs so i could start over...


his is a firmware problem. Go to http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloa... and download (save) the firmware update. Then follow the directions to upload it onto your Pearl. As soon as you are done, it will work perfectly!

I found this on another website..it worked for mine

Won't put songs onto the player


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

Phillips 8 GB Go Gear


If you clicked "yes" to an Update for your device, then all your songs have been wiped. Firmware Upgrades and Repairs (whether performed knowingly or unknowingly), will delete all songs from your GoGear.

Alternatively, when you have automatic synchronization set up for Windows Media Player, then re-syncing to the device when the songs don't exist on your computer will also cause the GoGear to be wiped. It's a feature of WMP that I don't like.

Why do my songs show up on the SD card on my PC, but not on my MP3 player


I think that the problem is with the songs file formats. Try checking that they are all mp3. if they aren't then you have to convert them using an "MP3 Converter" software. there all plenty on the web. Goodluck
