Hi moogle. Normally a 4GB player should hold about 1000 songs, but then again there are disclaimers from companies that it depends on the file format and the length of the songs that you download to the player. For example, an MP3 file is twice as large as a WMA file, etc. Well, granted you're downloading songs of about 3-4 minutes average length, then there may be a possibility that some corruption has taken place in the memory of the player. You may need to format the player to completely remove these corruptions. Here's how to format your E260: (1) Set your player to MSC mode by navigating its Menu as follows: Menu > Settings > USB Mode > ..select "MSC" (2) Plug your E260 to your computer (are you using Windows XP or ME?). Your Operating System should recognize the player as a "Removable Disk" and will be assigned a drive letter. (3) Right-click on the drive letter corresponding to your Sansa E260, then select "Format" (4) When the Format window appears, make sure that the file system type is set to "FAT32", and that the "Quick Format" checkbox at the bottom of the window remains un-checked. Click "Start " to begin the process and follow the on-screen prompts. Formatting the player, though, will erase all your files but will clear the player of any corruption. Make a back up if you wish before formatting. (5) Unplug your player and switch the mode back to MTP if you like. MTP is used for subscription songs while MSC is generally used for non-licensed songs (like songs from Limewire, songs ripped from CD's, etc.). (6) Transfer your songs again to the player I hope this helps. Normally this would solve the little glitches in your player. If it doesn't, leet me know... there may be another solution I could offer. Syd :)

I have a sansa e260, 4gb capacity, that has a spot for micro sd mini chips. I recently puchased a 4gb mini sd ghip that is 4 gb and loaded it up with about 3.89 gb of music and the sansa will not detect...

The Sansa, in common with many devices which have been around for a while, will only recognize standard micro SD up to 2 GB, not the SDHC (High Capacity) variety.

Need driver for sansa e260 mps player My pc cannot recognize my player. I need a Driver for this product

you dont need a driver. when you plug it in a window should pop-up within 10-20 seconds of plugging it in. Click open folder to view files and then click what you want on your MP3 and drag it to audio. I've had this problem before.

Sansa e260

The e260 works with microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card and won't work in the Sansa.
With a microSD card, simply put music tracks into a folder called "MUSIC". When the card is installed, the Sansa will see the additional tracks.
