This is happening alot aparently, Sandisk is telling everyone to just reset it but that aparently isnt really working. only suggestion is to set the USB mode to MTP and try it.

You dont need any specific drivers. As long as you have Windows XP / SP2 and Windows Media Player 10 or higher. The drivers are part of these required components. Best of Luck.

RECOVERY MODE
Switch your Sansa E260 to its Recovery Mode:

1. Make sure the player is powered off
2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface
3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button.
4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E260 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode"
5. Connect your E260 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above)
6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E260 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6.

Next, Apply the firmware for the E260 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time):

Step 1:
Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E260 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop":
http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downl...

Step 2:
Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred which caused the player to keep resetting.

Step 3:
When the process is complete, unplug your E260 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch

Step 4:
Power up your E260 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. If not, try to repeat steps 1-4 again.

I hope this helps.

I have a SanDisk Sansa model e280r that has frozen. Music was put on there and then it was disconnected from the computer. The player began to refresh and has now stuck.


if this is happening frequently, then you must connect your mp3 player to the computer, then format it. after formatting, connect it to the computer then transfer all the songs. this should fix your problem.

How can you tell if it is a version 1 or 2?


Sansa e200 series has 3 not interchangeable versions of firmware:
  • version 1: e200, firmware starts with v1.xx.xxx
  • version 2: e200v2, firmware starts with v3.xx.xxx
  • version rhapsody: e200r, firmware starts with v1.xx.xxx
Site for the difference between these versions:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/193


The exact type should be on the back of the player: model e280R.
For the rhapsody there is only 1 firmware available.
The zip file can be downloaded here:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/rhapsody-1.0.2.165.zip

When another firmware is needed, go to the download firmware wizard on next page and select your model:

Sansa e280r wont connect with laptop


On your Sansa, go to "Settings," then "System Settings," then USB Mode, change the mode to MSC, then try it. If that doesn't work try the other modes just in case.
Hope this helps!

Can't download files from Overdrive files


Make sure that either your Rhapsody or Overdrive subscription is still good and resync all files in Windows Media Player.

If that fails, you'll have to start from scratch:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
-----
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
