Sansa e260 - Songs

Some songs won't show up, I've tried resetting the player and updating it, none of it worked. There are all these ghost files and folders...I can't download music either. What should I do? It has these weird files saying just V or weird symbols and I can't seem to delete them.

Did you try the Sansa Recovery Tool. Ghost (I'm assuming you mean hidden files/folders, which show up as "ghosted" images in Windows) files are critical to running this player.

Did you try reformatting the player? There are two ways to do this - see my "Tips and Tricks" under My Profile on Formatting an mp3 Player.

When on click on my sansa e260 in Rhapsody I see


Try the following method to see what is on your Sansa e260

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.

If you want to delete some or all of the files do the following:
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

I cannot delete songs from Sansa E260


Ok, Sansa made it a little difficult this time,

"Connect your player, of course. Go to "My Computer" > "Sansa e260". There are hidden files. To unhide go to "Tools" (located on the menu bar) > "Folder Options..." > hit the "View" tab > select "Show hidden files and folders". You will see more folders to appear in a faded color. Click on the "MUSIC" folder. Click on the artist, then album then select the song, right click and down to delete." --Yahoo Answers

My mp3 player says that the memory is full but I have no songs


if you are deleted the song using computer interface before, it is still on hidden file. plugin your device to computer and go to your sansa directory,
unhide all hidden file and delete it if you are using windows, but for mac pc, just go to the finder then ampty the trash.

Problem recognizing songs in sansa e260 mp3 player.


From what I'm hearing you don't have a good driver. If you still have the disk use that. If not google it or something. I have a Sansa e260 as well so I would suggest loading the songs on in windows media player rather that windows explorer. If you open Media Player and then go to sync and it does not recognize your device, then you have a bad driver. If not, then start syncing your songs that way.

Hope everything works,

Apparently there is a known problem with older firmware with some MP3 files having info in the ID part of the file that makes the player go crazy. So update your firmware or listen to different music :-)

"Bugs Fixed: Stability· Hanging at Refresh Database with certain ID3 tag genres."

This info from page below. Also shows you how to update to latest firmware which may fix your problem
