Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Problems Syncing After I switched from my old XP to my Acer w/ Vista, I've been having problems w/ my Sansa e260 mp3 player. I ended up formating it and lost all my songs and recordings etc. Windows Media Player recognizes the player, but when I search under songs, it still shows a folder for Marilyn Manson Antichrist Superstar, even after I format it. I try to delete it but it goes in error. Inside the folder there aren't songs either. Also apart from that, when I go to add a song to sync, it goes in error. The animation on the player stops and it locks up. It's then unresponsive until the battery dies. Please help if you know what's wrong DX

To delete songs from your device follow the steps below
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.

I connect sansae260 to PC, Nothing apears on Sansa's Screen


You may need to now reset the player, that may have been a bit much for it.
To reset your Sansa Mp3 player.
  1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds.
  2. Release the Power switch.
  3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.

Problem recognizing songs in sansa e260 mp3 player.


From what I'm hearing you don't have a good driver. If you still have the disk use that. If not google it or something. I have a Sansa e260 as well so I would suggest loading the songs on in windows media player rather that windows explorer. If you open Media Player and then go to sync and it does not recognize your device, then you have a bad driver. If not, then start syncing your songs that way.

Hope everything works,

Sansa e260 firmware


Mine was a bit more FUBAR I guess. I have a Sansa e260. I had rockbox on it, went to switch back to the firmware. Uninstalled rockbox and on reboot... the e260 was refreshing the database and then came to a frozen green screen.

My e260 was already in MSC mode. I did the steps above but was still stuck.

The solution that worked was one posted by "Slaughter" on anythingbutipod.

The ultimate fix for all e2xx v1 problems - Format, enter recovery mode, downgrade firmware Link (you'll need to format the drive), reinstall newest firmware via newest Sansa Updater, reload tunes.

You cannot transfer from the player to the computer - sorry. The follwoing is the method you would use, but it won't work:
Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mp3 player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing

My mp3 a sansa e260 player may have been corrupted and am told by the peaple a real help that i may need to format my device inasmuch as we have tried absolutely everything on their end.


To reformat:
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Not recognized.


Have you downloaded the firmware from sandisk?

Also, have you gone to Windows Media Player 11 and tried to sync it?

When you plug the Sansa in, Vista should recognize and the Sansa should show connected. XP should do the same thing.

http://www.sandisk.com/sansa/#/support-0/
This is for the Sansa e200 series
Go to this site: there is a firware update
also, Media Converter (if you do not have it)
User manual
How to videos
More Support information

In the manual it shows that the 4gb is the Sansa e260; is that what you have?

Be more elaborate with your description(s).


Are you using Windows Media Player or Rhapsody ?

Is the problem with connection to Windows? If so, what message do you receive?

FYI - you need Windows XP / SP2 and Windows Media Player 10 or higher in order for the device to install on your PC.





Please add to this question for additional assistance.


Best of Luck.
