This is a common problem usually formating your sansa can solve it.
Give it a shot and let me know.

Sansa e280 won't upload my photos. Do I need media manager or something?


You need to use the Sansa Media Converter to convert pictures to a format the Sansa can handle. They also need to go into the internal memory, as the e280 will not display pictures from a microSD card.

My sansa media converter did not detect my sansa e280


Set the device to MSC mode (default is Auto) in the USB properties on the Sansa device. This worked for me with a Sansa Fuze on Windows XP running Sansa Media Converter 1.0. Hope this helps.
