Alright...The problem is my mp3 won't work..When I plug it to the PC it wont recognize it, it just shows on the screen "Load main image failed. Switch to recovery mode"...It also says that when I simply TRY to turn it on..
So if someone here could tell me how to format it if my computer wont recognize...Help :D
I don't know why it worked, but I was having the same problem until I removed the SD disk from the Sansa. Then the computer recognized it, and also the SD disk after I reinserted it.
It's this sort of thing that the iPod is unlikely to have. Sandisk really needs to clean up its act!
Turn off the player.
Make sure that when connecting the cord to the player you hear a "Click" confirming that the cord is securely plugged into the player.
Put the Hold switch in the "Hold" position so you see the orange color on it.
Hold the Record button on the side while pressing the power button.
This brings you into recovery mode.
This is where you can use the REcovery Tool from the Sandisk website to format and wipe the player to its original status.
If the Recovery Tool does not work, then you must use the Firmware Updater tool, also on the Sandisk site.
This worked for me last night, as I had the same issue.

sounds like a firmware program problem and will have to be replaced. You could download an updated firmware but you will have to get a pc connection.
After your device is plugged in, are you able to go to
"my computer" and see a drive folder that has your device on it.
I recently purchased the Sandisk e260 Mp3 player but my PC is not recognizing the mp3 player & i can't transfer my music to the mp3 player. I tried connecting to 3 different PCs & they all don't seem to recognize the mp3 player. any ideas what else i can try?
