Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
Hello, I am going crazy with this because it doesn't make sense to me. Everytime I plug in my Mp3 player in MTP mode it find it and downloads the drivers, I click finish, then it finds new hardware again and goes through the same thing (endless loop). I have tried using it on other computers with XP and Windows Media Player 11 and NO problems! I can't remember but I think it may even have worked on my machine when I first got it but then started doing this "found MTP device" thing where it loads the drivers. I have tried uninstalling Windows Media Player and rolling back to 10 and that doesn't help. Any ideas what is going on or anything else I can try? I don't fully understand this MTP mode and what hardware/software is responsible for making sure it runs correctly. thanks! Matt

Sansa e250 has MTP and MSC modes. Only MTP mode can be used to open or view folders on the device/player, and therefore adding or deleting files can only be done via MTP mode. Moreover this is the ONLY way Windows XP or WMP11 (or any other version) will even properly recognize the player. The peculiar thing is My player is recognized perfectly and fully functioning in MTP only on one particular install of XP pro sp3. I have tried several such versions, i.e. with sp3. Even after all possible driver packs are installed, including MTP 8.05 - Sansa e250 does not work in MTP mode. Sansa itself has nothing useful to offer to solve this, nor is there anything helpful on the included software for the player. PLEASE PROVIDE A SOLUTION FOR THIS ONCE AND FOR ALL. THIS WILL ALSO BE OF TREMENDOUS HELP TO OTHERS AND SAVE HOURS OF FRUSTRATION.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH

MTP only works with USB2.0. Check to see if your USB controller is USB1.1 or USB1.0. If so, u might be able to update the firmware for your motherboard.

Try connecting it to another computer and see if it will recognize it as sansa or removable drive. if it does then download the sansa update software and install it. Make sure you disconnect the sansa and connect it when asked. This will update your sansa and add the Usb Mode. Try to connect it to your computer at home it should recognize.... link for update software (http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe) download to a flash drive much easier Make sure USB mode is MSC I use my computer to drag and drop my music from my music folder to the sansa media folder.... Open my computer click on folder what ever folder has your music in it and drag to media folder and drop (click on the (+)where it say's sansa )
