Sansa e260 and Windows Media Player 11 Issue

I use Vista Home Premium, SP1 (64bit) on my pc with Windows Media Player (ver 11) and my mp3 player is recognized when I plug it into the usb. I can load music using the "drag and drop method, but I used to be able to use the WMP until now. The problem is when I try to use my mp3 player with WMP as the WMP will display a message "Windows Media Player Has Stopped Working" and all I can do is either close the program or find a solution.

I can send a screen shot of the entire message if need be. My daughter has a Sansa c200 and it has the same issue. Please assist.

    I can send a Power Point Screen Shot as it has several codes, but not really error codes.

I have Windows Vista and it says that it can't support the sansa e260


I would place the e260 in MSC mode first, as Vista should support this Sansa.
Unplug the player, then from the e260 do the following:
go to Settings, then choose System Settings then USB Mode & select MSC. Next, connect the E260, Vista should now see the player properly.

How do I get my Sansa e260 to appear in Windows Media Player (v. 11; Vista)?


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

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.

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)

More Support information

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