Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Songs on computer, not on Sansa.

It seems as though the person I was receiving help from hasn't responded in quite some time, so maybe one of you could help? Here's a link to the conversation. All the information I can give is included in it:

    Alright, I'll definitely try that, then. How do I go about finding the correct way to reformat it, though? I've read that you have to contact the manufacturer, which shouldn't be too much of a problem, of course. Is each model of Sansa Mp3 players reformatted in a different manner, or is everything relatively the same?
    By the way, I apologize if I seemed a bit in a hurry or impatient earlier.

Even though this is a pain, I would reformat the player, and re-add the songs again with WinAmp (not adding more than 10 at a time, of course). Once again, tell me how it works. If we can crack this, there are a lot of Sansa owners on the WinAmp forum that could benefit.

All throughout this process, i have been able to transfer songs successfully from my Sansa Clip (diff model than yours) to WinAmp, but I have only added a few songs just as a test.

    Sometimes the settings menu of the Mp3 player itself has a format option, so you don't have to go through the PC at all. You will most likely have to format it by going to My Computer --> right click icon of Sansa --> Format - the correct format depends on your computer - for most Windows-based computers, choose FAT32, Linux would be NFTS - I do not know how to format a Macintosh

This player supports two different USB modes. If the songs were added with the other method, you need to use that other method to delete the songs. Read up on it. Common headache, easy solution.

E260 keeps refresshing data base

from Stollydog - I had put in an SanDisk 8GB as I have heaps of CD's. I removed this and then went back to factory settings. I reloaded my music from the computer and now it thankfully has stopped refreshing and repeating songs. My partner has an identical SanDisk with an 8GB card extra in it but isn't causing this problem. Maybe this can help at least solve some of the problem though my 4GB is just about full now.

Have you tried removing the battery? Or maybe your battery is low. As well, if your mp3 player isn't turned on when you plug it in, that seems to affect if the computer recognizes it.
