You need to synch them to Rhapsody or whatever music service you pulled the songs from. also, make sure your music service subscription supports transfer to portable devices instead of simple transfer to a computer.

I own a sandisk sansa e260 4.0gb and for some reason my computer is no longer recognising my mp3 player? I am currently running Microsoft 11 on my computer, could this be the problem? My other issue is...

Hello,

Having the Sansa e260 and running WMP11, the easiest way for updating the drivers on the computer for connection is to download the
Sansa Firmware Updater. After the download, start the execute file
SansaUpdaterInstall.exe . You should be logged onto the computer having administrator rights, allowing you to run this execute file.

See next link how to use the automatic updater function, method 1 ( and updating manually going to Sansa forums, method 2 ) :
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/306


The error for converting wma files to mp3 is caused by not having the
valid media usage rights (any more) for the music to get them copied or converted.
This could be solved by playing or synchronizing the song at least one
time, before trying to convert. First check next setup in WMP11:
In the Sync tab select More Options.. , under Privacy look
for and select the box "Download usage rights automatically when I play or sync a file".

Purchased CD song to Sansa

Open Windows Media Player.
Click on the Rip tab.
Insert the CD into the computer.
Click Start Rip
Windows Media Player will convert the songs on the cd to a format that the Sansa player recognizes - may take a few minutes.
Click Sync.
Drag the files from the CD to the right window pane.
Click Start Sync.

Presto!

Synchronize to continue your music subscribtion???????

You have to synchronize your Sansa to a computer that has a current subscription to Rhapsody, and you have to sync the Sansa to that same computer at least once every 30 days, or the Rhapsody songs will stop working. Use a different music service that is free, or convert all of the songs to Mp3 format to get around the problem. If you get a subscription to another music svc, then you must maintain a current subscription with whatever new svc you choose as well.

Sansa e260 won't let me download certain music

If you used Windows Media Player to "rip" (copy) the music to your computer. The default settings are to "copy protect my music" if you didnt change this setting, the Sansa will want a "license" to go with it. Resolution, change the setting in Windows Media Player, Tools>Options>Rip Music (uncheck copy protect my music). You can also change the default rip setting to Mp3, as opposed to Windows Media Audio. Then you would have to re-rip the tracks to your PC, as unprotected. Make sure you delete the old tracks from the device, otherwise, it will always give you that error message. Best of Luck.

SanDisk Sansa e260

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
-----
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
