If your CD is damaged, you can obtain a replacement from Sandisk.

To enter Recovery Mode, turn off your device, ensure the HOLD switch on top is slid to the right (towards the headphone jack), connect the cable to the device (not the computer yet), hold down the RECORD switch on the side, and connect the cable to a USB port on the computer.

If this does not solve your problem, you will need to re-install the firmware.

Try using the Sansa Dispatch to upgrade your firmware. If this does not work, we may need to manually update the device. This is kind of technical and (in most* cases) voids the warranty.

I will have to double-check the documentation that came with that specific MP3 player, but I know that some Sansas will only support upto 2 GB in the expansion slot.

Sansa 4gb mp3 player


perform recovery mode on the player and create a file named sansa.fmt and put that file in the 16 MB format that should reformat the whole player after you have put that file in the drive and unplugged the player from the computer. After that has been done try to update the firmware of the player.
by this u can delete fully and clear

Recovery Mode, Updated Firmware... Memory Capacity Deleted!!!


It probably changed the mode of the player to MTP instead of MSC. There is a setting in the mp3 player for that.

let us know if it helps.

RECOVERY MODE
Switch your Sansa E260 to its Recovery Mode:

1. Make sure the player is powered off
2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface
3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button.
4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E260 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode"
5. Connect your E260 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above)
6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E260 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6.

Next, Apply the firmware for the E260 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time):

Step 1:
Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E260 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop":
http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downl...

Step 2:
Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred which caused the player to keep resetting.

Step 3:
When the process is complete, unplug your E260 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch

Step 4:
Power up your E260 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. If not, try to repeat steps 1-4 again.

I hope this helps.
