Sansa e260...bad software

I can't get the disk that came with my Sansa Sandisk e260R to download to my new computer. It worked fine with my old computer. Is there a way to download the software from another souce? I've been on the Sansa website numerous times, but I can't seem to find what I need.
Thanks,
Terri

Ok, so I feel like an idiot....
The software did in fact get downloaded....the problem was me...(of course!)
I went to Settings on my mp3 player and went to Mode and somehow it had gotten switched from Rhapsody to the PlaysForSure mode. In the PlaysForSure mode it acts like a "normal" mp3 player and will not sync with Rhapsody....so my Rhapsody software wasn't needed in this mode. After I switched it to the Rhapsody mode everything worked like it was supposed to with my mp3 player.
The Sansa Sandisk e260r is a great little mp3 player. Everytime I've had problems with it...it's been me not understanding it.
Thanks!

The software on my sansa e260r is completely gone, when i start it up it reads" load main image failed, switch to recovery mode


Hello,

Firmware on the player can be reinstalled in 2 METHODS.
In both methods the player should be in USB connection mode MSC = recovery mode.
How to switch the player into MSC mode:
0. Player not connected to a computer.
1. When the e260R is not OFF, on the 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
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 a computer running Windows, you can use the Sansa Firmware Updater to get an automatic download of the firmware for the e260R.
How to use the Sansa Firmware Updater [METHOD 1]:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/306
If not installed yet, get the Sansa Firmware Updater to download:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Application/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe
Right click the link above and Save target as... ; save the Installer to a location on your computer, install and run the updater on your computer. Select Firmware in the updater and Download Now, to start downloading the software for the player.

When you prefer to download manually or if you have another operating system, the firmware can be downloaded from the forums site [METHOD 2]:

How to charge the Sandisk 4.0 GB sansa Rhapsody e260R .. I do not know anything about it..


There should have been a cord included with the Sansa. It has a standard USB connector on one end and a rather flat connector marked "Sansa" on the other other end. This end goes into the slot at the bottom of the Sansa, with the "Sansa" label up (on the same side as the screen on the Sansa). The other end goes into a USB connector on a computer. Leave the computer powered on to deliver power to the Sansa.

You can download a copy of the manual from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.sansa.com

Sandisk sansa e260r


if you still have the software that came with it (and installed) plug your sansa into your computer....the software should recognize it...then look for a button that says "repair" or "format" im not familiar with the exact program but i know your problem all too well...*shudder* what that will do is it will REMOVE all the songs from the sansa...but if their still on your computer you should be fine...then it reinstalls the firmware(the codes and software that make it work) then you just have to re-addall your music and your all set :) if this doesnt work feel free to repost here :P

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
