I have a sansa e280 , 8gb and I can load only 60 regular songs, every time I try to load more songs on it, it erases some of the old songs and load the new ones, If i try 6 song it erases 6 old songs and load the new ones. I dont have to load anything, when I just plug the sansa to the computer it starts to load every single song that it find on the computer, even loads song that I dont want. I have no choice It do it by itself. Im desperate, what I can do, I just bought it and I cant use it as I would like.

When the Sansa reads "refreshing database," what it is doing is going through all the songs you've loaded on to it, pulling out the "tag" information (Artist, Album, Song Title, Genre) so it can add this information to its own database which it uses to display the songs to you in its menus.
If it gets stuck during this process, usually it's because of a corrupt song file, or a song file in a format it doesn't understand.
Note that the e280 is only able to play MP3 and WMA audio formats. If you've loaded a different type of audio file onto your Sansa, you'll need to remove them.
If the songs you've recently loaded have all been MP3 and/or WMA, you may have loaded a corrupted file onto your Sansa. Try removing the songs you recently added, and see if the problem goes away.
The Sansa player will only recognize certain file formats. The songs with a Red X are not eligible to be transferred to your player, because their DRM license does not allow transfer to certain (or any) mp3 players.
It is best to use songs that are in mp3 format only. They will give you fewer headaches.
on the left hand side above the word create playlist, you'll see an eighth note next to the word music. click on the arrow next to the word music.click sansa c140 (if u have one) then click the arrow nest to sansa c140 and click on folder. then open it and you'll see a picture that looks like a stack of cds. click on it ONCE then press the delete key. it will delete allyour songs. then go back to the library and download back the songs you want.
ive had this same problemo. you cant use the media converter to drag and drop songs. you have to download your songs or rip them onto windows media player. you plug in the sansa and then when its recognized there will be an area on the right hand side where you drag the songs and they appear on sansa.
SHAKER ONLY TAKES MP3 FORMAT!!!!!
Use this site to change your format to the correct one for the sansa
shaker. This is the only way to load songs from your cds MWA will not
work at all. Must convert all files to MWA use site below
