Hi Nicole. Does this happen to all your video files, or just that one file? Normally that would be an indication of a corrupted video file, or a video file type with a frame rate that is not fully supported by the E260. In any case, updating the firmware of the player won't hurt and may actually provide enhancements that would eliminate the error you're encountering. Try this link to download the Sansa Firmware updater. The instructions are included on that SanDisk link: For standard E260 or E260R "Rhapsody Series": http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 I hope this helps. There are other procedures available, but this might actually resolve issues with the player. Let me know the results. Syd :)

My mp3 freezes up after playing awhile

Usually freezing is resolved via a firmware upgrade - check the manufacturer's website. Sansa players are manufactured by Sandisk.

Every time i put music on it

It is set for random play - go into the menu and change it to sequential play. If you've lost your user manual, you can find it on the Sandisk website, or go here:

Screen turns weird colors when trying to play a video

You can press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, instead of removing the battery.

As for the other issue, there is not any RAM on the MP3 player to buffer the video, so its best to keep the video in clips around 10 minutes.




Best of Luck.
