Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
Playlists can be made on the fly, but you have to play each song you want to add to the playlist in order to bring up the option.
Basically WinAmp is the way to go [here's how:]
First, start up Winamp and add your songs to its library.
You've probably already done this.
Next, create a playlist.
Call it "Exercise" for this example. Drag a few songs from your library to it.
Next, connect your e260 in MTP mode.
It should show up after a few seconds under the
"Portables" item in the Winamp hierarchy.
Right-click the Exercise playlist and send to your e260.
Wait for the playlist and songs to sync, then disconnect your device.
(Optional) go to your e260's playlists and confirm that Exercise didn't show up. If you do see it, then you probably have a future version of the firmware that doesn't have this problem.
Here's the kick.
Turn the e260 off by holding down the power button for a couple seconds until you see "GOODBYE."
Release the power button. Switch the lock slider to the locked position.
Press the power button and keep holding it down. The blue wheel light will come on, and then you'll see the SanDisk logo. Then the screen will go black and you'll see
System shutdown Once you see that message, you can let go of the power button. Flip the lock slider to the unlocked position and press the power button again. Now navigate back to your playlists and you should see Exercise!
Fortunately you don't have to go through these hoops with every sync. You can freely edit existing playlists and add/remove music; these actions appear to work fine. This hack is necessary only to get new playlists to show up.
