Sansa Updater Problem

I tried to run the updater program with my e260, but it crashed. Now my PC will not recognize the e260. I tried to remove the updater program from my computer, but when I try to run the removal it stops and says
failed to stop sansa dispatch error
Any suggestions on how to remove the updater program?

Use the add/Remove hardware tool first

If that fails, go into Programs --> Sansa --> Uninstall

That's a new one for me - go ahead and call Sansa

How do i update my firmware


It is pretty easy. If running Windows just download the Sansa Updater (see link below) and install it.

Then, use the Mac/Linux instructions (even if running windows!) to put the e260 into MSC mode- turn e260 on, switch e260 hold switch to on, press and hold the e260s LEFT button "<<" while you plug the USB cable into the e260.

For me (running Windows XP) the Sansa updater automatically detected the e260 then and updated the e260's firmware.

Links to the updater, and alternative complete instructions for Mac/Linux are here

You need to use the sansa media converter program that came with the sansa on the CD. This is used for photos1.gif and for video. The supported files are listed on the screen once you open it.You shouldnt have any problems transferring music to it using that program

Sansa e260 says connected but device not recognized


I agree with the above suggestion. Try setting the USB Mode under "Settings" on "MSC" on the Sansa. My computer would not recognize the e260 when the mode was set to "MTP"; works fine on "MSC".
