Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

I connect sansae260 to PC, Nothing apears on Sansa's Screen


You may need to now reset the player, that may have been a bit much for it.
To reset your Sansa Mp3 player.
  1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds.
  2. Release the Power switch.
  3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.

Rechargeing a sansa mp3 player


Sansa MP3 players recharge via the slot on the bottom. Use the supplied cable, plug one end into the player and the other into a USB slot on your computer. Make sure the player is unlocked before connecting.

Trying to add 4 GB microSDHC card to sandisk sansa e260. connect e260 to computer via USB. insert micro card. computer does not recognize microcard. why?


Hello,

The player automatically connects to the computer in Media Transfer Protocol mode (MTP mode).
For accessing the microSD card in the player, the USB connection in the player has to be set to MSC mode, see:

How to change USB mode for the e200 series, proceed as next:
1. From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
2. Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC.

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!

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.

Sandisk e260 froze after power up.


sounds like a firmware program problem and will have to be replaced. You could download an updated firmware but you will have to get a pc connection. 
After your device is plugged in, are you able to go to  "my computer" and see a drive folder that has your device on it.

Sansa e260 will not connect to computer


Unplug the Sansa from the computer. Turn it off. Hold in the REC button. Reconnect the Sansa to the computer while holding in the REC button. After 10-15 seconds of continuing to hold in the REC button, a window should pop up saying "Found New Hardware Wizard." Complete the Wizard.
