Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

Sansa cant be detected by computer

There's somthing wrong with my sansa e260.
One day I was listening to music and then it the player was really hot. So I shut off it, when i got home , i charged it and found something strange. Before this happened, when I charged the Sansa with the USB cord , the screen would appear "Connected". But this time when I charged it, it didn't show "Connected", on the bottom right of the screen , the battery line was charging, and I thpught it was strange. The Next Day, I was going to add music in my sansa, but the computer I used to add music didn't detect the Sansa, then used all the computers at home.
Is There a Solution to this?

    I have a similar, if not the same, problem. When I plug my sansa into the usb port, it recognizes it, then the sansa fades to little white lines and it disconnects on its own and will keep repeating this on its own if i don't manually disconnet it. i can't access any of the music on my player via any computer. this was unprompted and i have only mp3 files on there, non-pirated at that, so i know nothing is dirty. is there a fix?

    My Sansa260 and my desktop are not talking to each other. I've tried connecting to different ports, shutting down, and used different settins on the 260. The acknowledgement beep is heard from the computer but they do not communicate back and forth.

    Please Help

    Be specific a little slow :)

For everyone having e260 problems here is the answer. First make sure that you have your usb mode on msc before plugging in to the computer. Then go to folder options and select show hidden folders. You now have access to the music folders and can delete music. You can create a new folder or use the music folder for your music. To prevent future problems go to properties on the hidden folders and unhide them.
