Simply put it into recovery mode. to do this plug it into your computer and push the hold button till the ornage is showing. next push and hold the record button as well as pushing and holding the power button. if you do this correctly it should free up the space. heres the forum link if your still confused. http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=e200

Sansa e280


Hello,

Like most players, the device should contain 3 folders with the name
Music
Photo
Video.
Media is on the player, each type has its their specific folder name (should be int the matching location).
If deleted, make new folder names Music, Photo and Video.

When having problems with making a connection to the computer:
>
Having a version 1 player, the e280 (written on the backside):
1. On your Sansa player, press and hold the Power/Menu button for 15 seconds to turn the device completely off.
2. Slide the Hold switch so the orange portion shows.
3. On your PC, double-click My Computer (on MAC, open the desktop screen)
4. On your Sansa player, press and hold the REC button while connecting it to the PC.
5. Release the REC button when a 16MB-FORMAT drive partition appears under My Computer (on MAC, on the desktop screen)

Having a version 2 player, the e280v2 (written on the backside):
For step 1, 2, 3 and 5 follow the same steps as for version 1.
Only for step 4:
4. Press and hold the ( |<< ) button on your player, while connecting to the PC.

How do you reform a Sansa E280E MP3 player. video files stored is corrupted and unable to be deleted through normal means.


Hello there...

To format your mp3 player please do the following

Connect one end of the USB cable to your player and the other end to an open USB port on your computer. Your computer will recognize the new device.

Double-click "My Computer" on the desktop. You will see your Sansa e280 player's icon listed as a removal disk together with other hard drives on your computer.

Right-click the Sansa e270 icon. Scroll down and click "Format." When the format window opens, click "Start." The formatting will erase any current information on the drive. Depending on the memory capacity, it could be a quick process or take a little longer.


I hope this solves your problem,,,

No space for DB please delete more than 4 0mb


Beware the following steps will completely reset your device to factory default and will delete any files you have placed on the device!
Be sure the device is OFF.
Slide the Hold switch atop the device to the right (orange showing).
Press and hold the REC button down while connecting to the PC. Keep the button held down until it pops up in the Windows Explorer( My computer) window, and the device says "welcome to Recovery Mode" on its screen.
A new icon will appear (in "my computer), labeled 16MB FORMAT.

Under NO circumstance, even if your PC "wants" you to, format this partition!! It will erase the firmware and bootloader of the device!

What we want to do is double-click the new icon labeled 16MB Format with your mouse to open its window, on a blank part of this new window right click and select New > Folder. Rename this new folder sansa.fmt and drop it into this 16MB partition.

The presence of a folder in there instructs the Sansa to perform a formatting operation.

Right click on the 16MB FORMAT partition logo, and select Eject. Then unplug. Your Sansa will format itself automatically.
Do not press any buttons on the device until formating is complete.

After formatting, then plug in again! Remember to flip the Hold switch back to OFF or you will get a key lock message, and the Sansa will shut down.

The Sansa should show up in the window.

This should restore normal USB communication. Then, you can establish an MTP connection.

My sansa media converter did not detect my sansa e280


Set the device to MSC mode (default is Auto) in the USB properties on the Sansa device. This worked for me with a Sansa Fuze on Windows XP running Sansa Media Converter 1.0. Hope this helps.

Sansa E280 MP3 Player has problem synchronising playing songs


Make sure your Rhapsody subscription is paid and up to date - if it ever lapses you will lose the songs. also, check out the License tab under properties for the songs that failed - the license may have a fixed-term/expiration date and can no longer be synced without paying $$. Rhapsody sucks like that.

With the device connected, check the Device Manager for errors (red or yellow) on Mass Storage Device and update the drivers on them.
