I just bought the thing a few weeks ago. I finally got all my songs found and added to the Windows media player and downloaded them to the sansa e260. I go back and edit the names on the songs quite a bit. But the thing wont show the corrections when I go to put them on the sansa. Other computers at my school show the songs as on my mp3, but when I disconnect to listen to them they're not there. The computer's show the files as hidden often too, I thought that may of been the problem so I unhide them using the computers aplication, with no result to the player showing up.
I'm wondering why the files are always showing up as hidden and not showing up at all when I use my player. I don't want to format the whole mp3 if i don't have to some songs show up on the player's screen, but not all the ones the computers show. Why why?

Hello, in my opinion it is enough to format your player memory. Connect it to the PC and make back up your media files. Format the drive of the player. After this all the media files will be disapeared from the player. Then copy back the media files backed up frpm the PC. I hope in this way your songs will come back again. Bye, gylacz
Try adding some songs using Windows Media Player. Then on the home screen go to menu-system-system repair tools and reset the temporary settings ( the 1st option on top). Warning:If you have rated your songs the ratings will disapear.
You might have a "bad" song? Try wipping the songs off and resyncing youre player. Also, for the charging problem. Are you charging it through your computer? I've found that these players charge ALOT better through an AC outlet. I hope this helps.
I beleive your player saves a lists as well as the song itself.
the easiest way to fix it is to (if possible) use windows explorer, goto your player and look for a folder that says "albums" or "list", scroll thru and delete the folder of the songs that you have deleted.
umm..i have a suggestion... maybe there was a program in the player that wasnt meant to be deleted and WAS deleted by accident - maybe u should check if there is anything missing in your player other than the music that was lost.
Im not sure this'll work but its just a check to make sure thing! bye
