Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Songs keep disapearing or not showing up

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?
