    First time I plugged it in, it attempted to do the "Found new hardware"
    procedure. It failed, "A problem occurred..." I've tried uninstalling
    and reinstalling the device drivers and nothing changed. Device says "Connected"

What i would recommend you to do is to uninstall the device and reinstall it back...to uninstall it...assuming that you are running windows xp...click on start, right click on my computer and go to properties..you should have your system properties open then click under hardware then device manager...look for the sansa device..it usually located under portable device..if its not showing there i would recommend you to look for under disk drives and see if its there..right click on the device and click on uninstall...after you unintall it unplug your device from the computer....Then follow this link below to download the porting kit...http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A2E73160-E862-4F19-BB26-C0CAFE798955&displaylang=en .Then check the mode of yuor device to make sure it sunder MTP not msc...To check the mode go under menu, settings and choose usb mode...After you check the mode open up your windows media player click on tools, options and click under privacy...clear the history and caches...after you finish you can plug the device on the back of the computer not the front then windows should recongnize it and it should work properly..if that doesnt solve the problems upgrade your windows media player to 11 even though you have done that already..and try to reconnect your device..make sure you have it on the back of your computer...

Should you have any questions..let me know..
P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

Cannot get my computer to recognize my sansa e260 player


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

Jack problem


This unsually indicates a bad connection with the jack. Not the headphone jack, but the connector on the player. My son had that issue so I ended up opening the unit up and resoldering the connector to the circuit board. Don't recommend doing that. You'll need to have a technician do that or if it's still under warranty take it in.

My computer will not reconize my sansa ipod


I had the same problem. But then I figured it out. If you are using Windows Media Player, and it doesn't reconize it, then the VERSION does not reconize it.
The other computers might have a different version.
My computer has a version 10 and it works. Go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/AllDownloads.aspx and download a different version. (There is no harm or virus)

Dead Player


Hmmm...the MP3 parts shouldn't have lined up with the iPod dock. Check that area for damage in case your son accidentally forced it. Otherwise, hold the power button for 15 seconds. That can occasionally jump-start my player, and it turns the player off even if it is frozen.

HELP WITH SANSA E260


Try this;

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.






Best of Luck.
