Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My Sansa e260 MP3 player is not working properly.

Last week my cousin completely wiped out my computer and I had to re-download all my music, photos, and such. I have already installed the programs. I am trying to put some new music on but it is saying the device is not plugged in. I have taken the usb out of my computer and tried to restart my MP3 player several times. It is currently charging, yet I cannot get any songs onto it.

Can someone please help me? Thanks, it would be greatly appreciated.

For everyone having e260 problems here is the answer. First make sure that you have your usb mode on msc before plugging in to the computer. Then go to folder options and select show hidden folders. You now have access to the music folders and can delete music. You can create a new folder or use the music folder for your music. To prevent future problems go to properties on the hidden folders and unhide them.

RECOVERY MODE
Switch your Sansa E260 to its Recovery Mode:

1. Make sure the player is powered off
2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface
3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button.
4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E260 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode"
5. Connect your E260 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above)
6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E260 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6.

Next, Apply the firmware for the E260 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time):

Step 1:
Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E260 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop":
http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downl...

Step 2:
Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred which caused the player to keep resetting.

Step 3:
When the process is complete, unplug your E260 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch

Step 4:
Power up your E260 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. If not, try to repeat steps 1-4 again.

I hope this helps.

You could reinstall the firmware (what makes the sansa work). Its pretty easy to do, no need of downloading/installig, its already all in the sansa. You just need a computer How do I restore the firmware Firstly, place the e260 in restore mode. To do this, follow these steps 1. Push the Hold button on top of the e260 to the right. 2. Hold in the record button 3. Press and release the Menu button 4. The device will now go into Restore Mode. If you have not already connected the USB cable to your PC, it will direct you to do so. 5. The root directory of the device will open up on the PC screen. Now drag and drop the two files Firmware into into the e260 root directory. You will find a copy of the two firmware files zipped up elsewhere on these forums 6. Push the Hold button on the e260 back to the left 7. Unplug the USB cable from the PC. The e260 will now reboot, writing the new firmware images to the correct location. 8. This process will have wiped all your music files. You will now need to re-synch.
