I'd suggest formatting it and synching all the music back onto your mp3 player. Formatting it deletes all the music from it by the way.

To format:
1. Open up your Windows Media Player.
2. Right-click on the Sansa e260 in the menu on the left and click format.

There's also a more complex method, so if that method doesn't help just comment.

Songs will not transfer to E260


Make sure the songs that you put on are in a format compatible with your player.

If they are not compatible they will not show on the screen or play....

Sansa mp3 e260


Well, one way of fixing this can be to watch the files sync to your mp3 player and when it starts syncing the unwanted files, just simply press "stop sync". I think i know what you are using and i had the same problem at first. you will make a sync list and click sync but after that list if finished, it will sync the rest of the songs from your computer also, you can just wait for your wanted sync list to be finished and as soon as it begins to sync the unwanted media, just press stop. this wont harm your computer or your mp3 player.

Download music to my scandisk sansa e260


When you turn on the player, select the music menu, and then scroll down until the playlists logo appears - select that and then your playlist name should be there.

If it still isn't there, then the songs that you tried to sync have some sort of licensing restriction on them that does not allow them to be synced to a portable device - wmp will show them as synced, but alas - they will never actually show up on the player.

Play list


Rhapsody e260:

Playlists can be made on the fly, but you have to play each song you want to add to the playlist in order to bring up the option.

Basically WinAmp is the way to go [here's how:]

First, start up Winamp and add your songs to its library.
You've probably already done this.
Next, create a playlist.
Call it "Exercise" for this example. Drag a few songs from your library to it.
Next, connect your e260 in MTP mode.
It should show up after a few seconds under the
"Portables" item in the Winamp hierarchy.
Right-click the Exercise playlist and send to your e260.
Wait for the playlist and songs to sync, then disconnect your device.
(Optional) go to your e260's playlists and confirm that Exercise didn't show up. If you do see it, then you probably have a future version of the firmware that doesn't have this problem.
Here's the kick.
Turn the e260 off by holding down the power button for a couple seconds until you see "GOODBYE."
Release the power button. Switch the lock slider to the locked position.
Press the power button and keep holding it down. The blue wheel light will come on, and then you'll see the SanDisk logo. Then the screen will go black and you'll see
Key LOCKED
System shutdown Once you see that message, you can let go of the power button. Flip the lock slider to the unlocked position and press the power button again. Now navigate back to your playlists and you should see Exercise!
Fortunately you don't have to go through these hoops with every sync. You can freely edit existing playlists and add/remove music; these actions appear to work fine. This hack is necessary only to get new playlists to show up.

Loading playlist


The XP Drive letter assignment has nothing to do with Playlists. You need to set the device mode to MSC. Settings>Mode or USB Mode>MSC. Then in Windows Media Player (version 10 or higher) enable auto-sync for the PLAYLISTS only, unless you want all the music force fed to your device everytime you connect. You can add to this question for additional assistance. Best of Luck.

You have a corrupt file - bad file...

Corrupt files for sansa -

Plug your player in, in MSC mode.

Right-click on it.

Click "properties"

Click "tools"

Click "Error Checking"

Check both the boxes on the error checking window that pops up, and click start.

After it finishes, check your player to make sure your player is normal.
