Unfortunately, so simple - although this simple solution does not appear in any manual. the solution: put your Sansa in the rear USB - and the PC immediately recognizes the MP3 or MP4. The USB soccket in the front of the PC does not have enogh power, and when using the rear USB port - it works!

You dragged & dropped files in recovery mode? Recovery mode is only for re-installing the firmware or formatting the device if it is unresponsive. If you are wanting to drag and drop files onto the device, the music needs to be put into the Music folder on the device. If you do not see the Music folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your PC. Best of Luck. p.s. - you can add to this question this doesnt work.

How do you reform a Sansa E280E MP3 player. video files stored is corrupted and unable to be deleted through normal means.


Hello there...

To format your mp3 player please do the following

Connect one end of the USB cable to your player and the other end to an open USB port on your computer. Your computer will recognize the new device.

Double-click "My Computer" on the desktop. You will see your Sansa e280 player's icon listed as a removal disk together with other hard drives on your computer.

Right-click the Sansa e270 icon. Scroll down and click "Format." When the format window opens, click "Start." The formatting will erase any current information on the drive. Depending on the memory capacity, it could be a quick process or take a little longer.


I hope this solves your problem,,,

This player supports two different USB modes. If the songs were added with the other method, you need to use that other method to delete the songs. Read up on it. Common headache, easy solution.

Usb not recognizedon sansa e280


Your problem is not uncommon with many mp3 players, i am assuming your using Vista?
here is a link to Sansa that helps with this problem.
But before that I would try plugging your USB cord into a port on the back of the computer and preferably a usb 2.0 port.
If this doesn't get you connected right try this page for a solution.

I've sansa E280 problem is connecting to pc in mtp mode


You can download the software from this page, the options are on the right hand side of this page.
http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_e200/faqs

In order to get your Sansa connected, I would change from MTP to MSC and see if your PC recognizes the player then, as it should.
If you go into the settings menu and choose USB Mode and from there you can change to MSC from MTP. If you have one of those models that don't have a USB Mode option, then do the following to change to MSC:
(The model number followed by v2 on the back-bottom require this method) you have to turn it on, put the hold switch on, then hold the LEFT button |<< THEN plug it into the PC.

Sansa e280


You have a version 2 player. If you look at the back of your player in the bottom right hand corner, you will see v2 in tiny letters after the e280. When the v2 players first came out, they didn't have the USB option. About 2 weeks ago Sandisk came out with a firmware update 3.01.14, which returns the USB option. Go to:  http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx  download the sansa firmware updater, follow the instructions and it will upgrade your firmware to get your USB option. 
If your have any further questions or problems with your player go to the sansa e200 forum for additional help:  http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=e200&page=1
