Press and hold the power/menu button down for approx. 15-20sec. to reset the player, if the problem continues download latest firmware

  • Some Sansa players needs to be in MSC mode before plugging it in.
  • Plug in your Sansa player and it will automatically check for updates.

    My sansa e260 is displaying REFRESH DATABASE and the process continues so that no action can be performed.only a white light displays on the screen until the battery gets low.and a blue light displays on...

    freezing at refresh database means there is a wrongly formatted or corrupt file tht you are attempting to put on your mp3 player. to fix this you simply delete whatever corrupted file it is. i, personally, had to go to settings on the mp3 player and at the bottom of the list is "format", i had to format which deletes all ur songs but fixes freezing problem. u only have to do this if you dont know what song is freezing it. if you do know, then you can go into your mp3 file folder under my computer( removable E:) and delete the song from there or you can delete it from your mp3 player via windows media player. to be ensure tht it never happens again you should just put each song on 1 at a time, disconnecting it after every 1, if it freezes again you know what song it is and you can simply delete it. i know this seems like it would take 4ever, but having to go back through and reformat every sinmgle time this happens would take even longer, so just stick with it. hope this helps

    The songs are in the wrong format. this player will not play iTunes, for instance.

    My mp3 player

    ok here is the thing mp3 players work on bit rates ,
    meaning if your bit rate is over 128 bits
    unit will act weird
    so what i suggest is you erase and reformat and only install songswith bitrate of 128

    here is a link for ree songs dont sign up to b a member just use tral version and you can also get videos
    rembe only 128 bits and you wll be able to get more on your unit
    hope this help

    try removing the battery of the player for around an hour then put the battery back in. If it still freezes on that part maybe your songs are corrupted try reformatting the player.
