I've seen this question asked a number of times, but no one's given a
good answer -- I was hoping you could. I upload songs onto the player,
and they're there when I connect it to the computer and open the
removable drive folder, but when I disconnect the device, they don't
show up on the player itself. They're mp3 format, just like everything
else on it, but they're just not showing up, even when I remove the
songs, disconnect the Sansa, reconnect it, and put them back on. That
method used to work, but it doesn't anymore.

Re: Songs on computer, but not on Sansa
Very interesting. What program do you use to transfer files to your Sansa? Windows Media Player? Windows Explorer (drag and drop)? If they are Mp3 format, then the format is correct - we can rule that out. Unplug, retry failed, so we can rule out read errors.
You could try switching the player manually from mtp to msd mode, or vice versa - see your manual for details. One mode displays music files - the other mode hides them (which is why I don't like dual-mode players).
The database could have become corrupt - this can occur for a variety of reasons, but one reason is that this player was loaded on a machine running Windows Media Player 11. Have you updated the firmware for this device?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Not Recognized: Try connecting it to the back of your computer or another computer the back straight
to the motherboard this should be USB 2.0 and see if it will recognize
it as sansa or Drive/removable drive. if it does then download the sansa
and install it. Make sure you disconnect the sansa and connect it when
asked. This will update your sansas firmware and add the Usb Mode. Try
to connect it to your computer at home it should recognize.... link for
download to a flash drive much easier. Make sure USB mode is MSC Recovery Mode may also allow your computer to recognize the sansa lock
your sansa hold in the rec key on the left at the same time push the
menu/power button this will take you to recovery mode then connect to
the computer Start the update software when finished disconnect.... Sync to upload songs to the sansa......Hope this works
1. First, check your device setting up on MTP or MSC? Turn on device, go to "settings" , press down or up to find "USB Mode", you can see the check mark at MTP (auto detect) or MSC mode. Change to another usb mode.
2. You have 2 ways to delete songs:
2.1. Delete songs by device: play songs, press down (sub menu) until you meet "delete song", select it and yes
If you delete all items in device: Settings, Format, and yes
2.2. Delete songs by computer: plug device to computer, double click on device icon, Music folder, and delete songs you want. If you don't see songs in there, unplug the device from pc, and then change USB mode, and plug device to pc to delete.
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
To get songs off of mine, I went to my computer, and then to Sansa e250R (though your numbers may be different), then to music, and I just deleted what i wanted to get rid of. Im not sure, but this may only work if you're in PlaysForSure mode, which is changed on the mp3 player itself. Also, it leftempty artist folders on my Sansa, and I'm not sure how to get rid of those.
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there. Either under sync pane in windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete. Hope this helps If you still not able to delete it let me know so I can have you try something else... P.S.Please rate accordingly... Thank You Computerrep
Step One Connect the USB cable to your Sansa MP3 player, then hook the other end to a free USB port on your computer.
Step Two Give the computer time to recognize the Sansa MP3 player. Once it has, double-click on the MP3 player’s icon to view the music files stored to memory.
Step Three Scroll through the list of audio files until you find the ones that you wish to delete from the Sansa MP3 player.
Step Four Click on single items or click and lasso multiple files.
Step Five Right-click on the highlighted files to pull down an action list and from there select Delete. The computer will ask if you really want to throw the file away. Select OK.
Step Six Exit from the window, then disconnect the USB cable from the Sansa MP3 player. The player will automatically turn off. The memory will update the first time you turn the player on after deleting songs.
