E260 4gb mp3 player - cannot add music anymore

My Sansa E260 MP3 player will no longer add music. I can use WMP 11, or numerous other programs to add music to my mp3 player, but no matter how I do it, the songs never show up in the song list. I ahve tried MCP mode, MTP mode, drag and drop fro mwindows explorer, and nothing works. I tried updating the firmware, but the updater continually hangs. What a piece of junk!

    I am now learning that part of my problem is I am using Vista Ultimate 64 edition. Legacy devices seem to have lots of problems with it. Oh well, at least my games and music creation software all seem to run fine!

    I got my sansa e260 awhile ago and it was working fine until I removed internet access from my computer. Now when I try to synchronize my songs, it tell sme that an error has occured in obtaining the certificates (???) and to contact Microsoft product support. But I was wondering if anyone else had a solution or had troubles with the same problem. Thx.

How do you download music to an mp3 player from a cd?


Hello,

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.

When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.

If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

When needing more help, don't hesitate to write a comment in this reply.

Sansa m230 No Longer Syncs with Windows Media Player 11


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

How to download music to my sansa mp3 1gb.


I use Windows Media Player v. 11 (free software) with Windows XP transferred via the USB cable. This program will use the "sync" settings to add the music on your computer to the player. But, if the music is not in the MP3 or other compatible format for the player, then the WMP program will have to convert it first, which can take quite a few minutes if you have a lot of music.

Help downloading onto computer


This is an easy process, just connect a commercial USB cable that is compatible with your device or the USB cable that came with it to ur computer. go to my computer and double click on the MP3 player drive icon. Navigate to the MP3 drive folder where ur music files are stored, launch windows media player( WMP 11 is AVAILABLE AT MICROSOFT.COM/DOWNLOADS) or if you already have windows media player 11, that's good. click on tools in WMP and select OPTIONS, click on LIBRARY and click on MONITOR FOLDERS. select ADD to add your MP3 player drive to the list of monitored folders, after you finish adding the MP3 player to the list, click on OK and windows will search the drive for music and video files and add them to your WMP Library.

Sansa e260 won't accept songs


Hi Janworks4u. Question for you... Did your mp3 work fine with WMP 10? I ask because WMP 11 is known for causing problems w/mp3 players. You can try reverting to WMP 10 to see if that fixes your problem. To do this:

click START, click on CONTROL PANEL, ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS (look at the top center of the Add or Remove Programs box that pops up for a little square you can click on that says "show updates." Click that box and then scroll down to WMP 11. Click to change/remove. A box will pop up confirming that you will revert to WMP 10. NOTE THIS WILL NOTE DELETE ANYTHING FROM YOUR COMPUTER! All of your music that is in WMP 11 will still be there in WMP 10!

Now you can try to load your songs back on through WMP 10 and hopefully it'll work for you. Good luck!
