Retrieval of deleted voice recorded file

maybe, there are programs that retrieve deleted files, but sadly you need to buy them.

this only works if you havn't added any new voice recording (or a lot of voice recordings) or if you havn't reformatted your player.

I cannot delete songs from Sansa E260

Ok, Sansa made it a little difficult this time,

"Connect your player, of course. Go to "My Computer" > "Sansa e260". There are hidden files. To unhide go to "Tools" (located on the menu bar) > "Folder Options..." > hit the "View" tab > select "Show hidden files and folders". You will see more folders to appear in a faded color. Click on the "MUSIC" folder. Click on the artist, then album then select the song, right click and down to delete." --Yahoo Answers

Downloaded books from the library won't play

I was having the same problem when I used Overdrive Media Console to transfer my audiobook files to my Sansa. I updated the license and retransferred and even tried changing the USB settings on the mp2 player. What finally worked? Using Windows Media Player to sync the files instead. When I hooked up my Sansa I chose "use WMP to sync files" and then I dragged/dropped the audiobook files to the mediaplayer window. The audiobook now plays without any problems since WMP made sure the files have the latest subscription update code.

I have the sana e260

the video is most likely in quicktime format. The sansa should play mp4 video which quicktime can create.

my only guess is the sansa software isn't that good anyway. You can try using a program like super or handbrake.

Can't convert video

First in order to use the sandisk media converter your mp3 sansa should be recognized by your windows. You need to download MTP.
The new Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) enables you to manage content on any portable device with storag. Download from microsoft http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=a2e73160-e862-4f19-bb26-c0cafe798955&displaylang=en Once your sandisk is recognized then you can use the media converter. If you want to bypass media converter then you should buy a new media converter compatible with sandisk sansa and in this case you can convert without sandisk sansa attached to your computer. Please check it on the web. You can start by any video converter which available for free otherwise pro is a shareware: http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/

You have to download a free program such as Riva FLV Encoder first, and use it to convert your Real/Winamp videos to AVI format. Once they are in AVI format, the Sansa Media Converter will recognize them.

Edit the Id3 tags manually - takes time, but if you have THAT type of computer config, then there's just no other way.
