Sansa e260 Car Connection Problem

My Sansa e260 has a Radio adapter, which runs the song/audiobooks thru the speakers via radio, at the same time it charges the e260. In the middle of an audiobook chapter, it went to the Connection screen you see when plugging it into your computer and transfering data. I unplugged it from the adapter and it went back to the song screen, where it had not stopped playing. Plugged it back in and it went immedately back to the Connection Screen. I did do the turn off thing (hold down button for 15 sec) and it did turn back on, put it on the adapter, it worked for a minute, then went back to Connection Screen. HELP!!

    Who is the manufacturer of the adapter - and what is the model number of the adapter? Also, what type of car do you have? The Sansa player itself is neutral - it may respond to specific adapters in this way, or the car's Mp3 reading system (if it has such a capability) may be the culprit. But, the radio adapter is probably the key.

Bad fm radio reception on my kenwood car radio

It's not necessarily the Kenwood. BMW uses an odd system in their cars. There is the antenna, either on teh roof or in the rear window, that feeds analog to a receiver usually in the trunk that converts the signal into 2 wires. Analog and Digital. It uses a European antenna connection which requires an adaptor to interface our US Radios. So. It can be a couple of things that I've seen.
1. The adapter may not be perfectly nestled into the factory connection.
2. The adapter could be bad.
3. The car had an amplified signal processor built into the radio that amplified the antenna signal.

here are your possible solutions.

1. Check the Adapter and be sure it is plugged in properly. If it is still not working change it and try again.
2. If the adapter does not work, purchase a wired window-mount antenna and wire it thru your car. If you really want that kenwood, then you may have to compromise a little.
3. If neither works, then the only drawn conclusion would be the radio. Swap it and run thru the steps again.

There is not easy answer for this, it's troubleshooting stuff that has to be pin pointed. Good Luck!

I want to save the songs that are already on my sansa e260(4gb) on to a sd card because my screen cracked. is this possible?? i dont have these songs saved on my computer anymore!!

If the player is not totally dead, your PC should be able to recognize it via the USB connection.

If that is the case, you can open it on your PC as a storage device (drive) and copy the files, either to your hard drive, or to a separately connected SD card.

Installed a clarion radio it powers up but no music thru speakers

sounds like a short in your wiring to your speakers the best thing to do to check this is run a speaker wire directly to the speaker from the stereo check it that way and see if it works.If that don't work it's the wires on the stereo connection.The speaker wires on most aftermarket stereos are mostly colored 2 of each green,purple,white & grey.

Can't remove songs from mp3.

if you want to remove ALL songs from you sansa go to my computer right click the icon that refers to your sansa model and click format. this will delete all pictures, videos, voice recordings, preset radio stations, and music. this is the only way i have find to delete music permanently. before doing this make sure you have your files backed up. also you must be in MSC mode to do this.
