For the Sansa e260.
1. make sure the device is turned off. Slide the hold switch to the "on" position. Point the device up where the screen is facing you. The navigation buttons should be pointing down. The hold switch should be on the top of the device. Slide the switch to your right.
2. While holding the record button. The button should be on your left if the position of the device is the same as above in #1. Turn-on the device. Keep on holding the record button until the recovery mode message appears on the screen.

My recovery mode says "enter USB2.0 MSD mode" what do i do


Hi there.

I can understand your issue. When you say "enter USB2.0 MSD mode"getting into recovery mode. Then i'd say firmware needs to be updated..

Please follow the steps..

There are files in the player that might be corrupted causing the device to freeze and stop responding.

SOLUTION 1 - Reset the device.

1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.

NOTE: Resetting will turn the player off while it is frozen.

SOLUTION 2 - Force MSC or Recovery mode then update to the latest firmware.

STEP 1 - Force MSC or go to Recovery mode
For e200v1/e200R (Recovery mode only): Connecting in Recovery mode

1. On your Sansa player, press and hold the Power/Menu button for 15 seconds to turn the device completely off.
2. Slide the Hold switch so the orange portion shows.
3. On your PC, double-click My Computer
4. On your Sansa player, press and hold the REC button while connecting it to the PC.
5. Release the REC button when a 16MB-FORMAT drive partition appears under My Computer.

For e200v2 (Force MSC mode only): Enabling MSC mode

1. Turn device OFF.
2. Slide the hold switch to the direction of the headphone jack so an orange color would show putting the device on Hold.
3. Press and hold the ( |<< ) button while connecting the device to the PC.

STEP 2 - Update to the latest firmware manually, as it is described in Method 2 http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/306/kw/e200/r_id/101834.

Cant get passed recovery mode


this came from another post on fix ya.

For me the solution was this:
After entering the recovery mode (turn off the player, move the hold button to the right, and press the on and rec button, then connecting to the computer).
when the 16 mb folder opens create a NEW FOLDER (not a text document) called "Sansa.fmt". then disconec the usb and it was fixed.

Entering recovery mode is not possible


Disengage the lock switch, then try this: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, 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.

Recovery mode


You can enter recovery mode by first:
Making sure the player is off
Push the hold switch towards the headphone jack so you see orange
Press and hold record on the left of the player
With record still being held down, plug into the computer
Once you see welcome to recovery mode on the screen of the player, let go of record
At this point you can reload the manual firmware. You will probably need to contact sandisk so they can give you the link to the file.
