If you did a reformat or a firmware upgrade, it will erase all of your songs. The only option is to reload them all.

The video and voice recording on my sansa e260 stopped working.


You should not reformat the player unless you want to clear the mp3 player completely - erasing all music, recording, and other files completely.

Once you are done recording, the Sansa takes time trying to save the recorded files - it appears that it is freezing, but give it some time - it is just "thinking."

If the recorded files suddenly disappear, it is because the Sansa player has two modes - MSC mode and MTP mode. Files that appear in MTP mode will not appear in MSC mode and vice versa. If the recordings do not show up, go into your settings menu and switch the USB Mode.

I can't erase songs etc. fro my ipod classic 160g. I folloed the instructions but did not succeed. Please help.


Make sure you have the 'Manually manage music and videos' option checked. Click on the arrow next to your iPod and then click on 'Music' from the drop down. Now you can select which songs you don't want. Right click and delete.

Do you no how to reformat?


Formatting your player erases all of the songs that you had stored there. Once erased, there is no way to recover them - you must re-add the files.

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

Sandisk keeps skipping/freezing songs!


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
