Hi, the Sansa E260 is a portable MP3 player released by SanDisk in 2004. Several problems may cause the E260 to not function as intended from time to time. Common problems that occur are the device freezing, album art not appearing on the screen when a song is playing, pictures not filling the screen size and missing information on the separate tracks. You can troubleshoot the device and fix many of these common problems without the need of a service technician.
Reset 1. The Sansa E260 may freeze or function in other unexpected ways from time to time. This generally occurs when the unit's software has developed an error. Reset the device to clear the error and return the device to normal working operation. A unit reset is similar to rebooting your computer. You won't lose any data stored on your device.
To reset the E260, press and hold the "Power/Menu" button for about 15 seconds. The device will be forced to power down, during which the error will be cleared. You can restart the E260 as normal once the reset is complete. Album Art Does Not Display 2. The E260 supports viewing album art on the display screen during the playing of a song. You may find that your album art is not showing up on the display when music is playing on the device. To fix this, make sure the associated album art file is in the same folder as the song being played. You will need to connect the E260 into your computer to move the album art files into the music folder. Photos Aren't Full-Screen 3. Photos displayed on the E260 will not show up as full-screen shots if they are not cropped to the correct dimensions. The E260 software does not support stretching pictures to fit the full screen. To ensure your photographs will display on the full screen, crop the images to 128x64 in photo-editing software prior to transferring the image on the E260. Unknown Artist or Album 4. The E260 displays information about each song using the ID3 tags associated with each track. ID3 tags hold information such as the artist name, album name, track number, year it was released and other information. If the E260 shows an artist or album as unknown, the information in the ID3 tag was not filled in. You can insert information into the ID3 tags from your computer.
To change the ID3 information, right-click on the music file and choose "Properties." Click on the "Summary" tab and choose "Advanced." The ID3 fields will display in the window. Insert any of the missing information and click "OK." When you upload the song onto your E260, the newly inserted information will show up in the display.
change the usb modes also....MSC will allow you to see the expansion
card ( 2Gig E200 series 4gig Fuze) mtp won't.....MTP shows you your
music folder in the media folder thats where you put your music plus
expansion..... Delete songs and Format (Helps with trying to delete BAD TRACKS and folders that will not delete full memory(Some ripped CD folders).. Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders themselves then format a couple of times hope this works
Labeling Unkown Songs: open Windows Media Player and go to libary click on artist. The sub folders will be named by the artists and the unknown songs will be in the sub that say's unknown. Click on unknown then right click on the title bar put a check next to artist and album artist. Right click song under artist or album artist or both and type in the name of the artist etc.... This change in your computers Music folders also then syc with your sansa or media player then load songs to it........

Well for starters, clear some memory. It sounds like the player is trying to turn on but failing as there is not enough free flash memory for it to use in a RAM like fashion. If youre using windows enable the view of hidden files folders. [Start> Control Panel> Appearence and Themes>Folder Options then browse through the tabs until you find a list which has the option "show hidden files and folders". Then plug in your e260 and go into the larger removeable drive. Then go into the folder "VIDEO" or "PICTURES" or "MUSIC and delete some files. Then once you have deleted at least 100MB, unplug and restart the player. This should fix your problem if it doesnt. Consider formatting the removeable disc, or updating the firmware. [However take extreme caution with formatting the disk to ensure that it does not contain the program files needed to run the player.
The symptoms you described may be due to corruptions in the player's music database (this player maintains an information pool on the music files you download to it). To resolve that, you would need to delete that database and let the player re-create a new one.
To delete the corrupted database, let's do this:
Switch your player to MSC mode
Browse the player in "Windows Explorer", and look for the folder named "System" and/or "Data".
Note: if you can't locate these folders, your Explorer may be configured to "Hide" system files and folders. To change that, please go to "Tools" on the menu list on the Explorer window, then choose "Folder Options". This will display a Window arranged in tabs. Select the "View" tab, find the "Hidden Files and Folders", then choose the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button
Under the "system" or "data" folder on the Sansa E260, look for this file and delete it:
Safely remove your Sansa E260. Then power it on.
Your player will now either display "Rebuilding Library. Please Wait" or "Finalizing Update". Either way, it would re-build the database and hopefully resolve the error your player is encountering.
I hope this helps. I love the Sansa E260!!
what you need to do is this.
i cant help you if you have a mac but i can help you if you have a pc.
for pcs, you need to plug in your player.once its connected, double click "my computer".in it, the player should have registered and their should be an icon that says "sandisk sansa e260" ( or something like that, i couldnt exsactly tell you considering my player is completely busted at the moment.)then you should see a bunch of files.the files will include album art,songs,and folders for videos or pictures.in the pictures folder you can access your pictures,and right click on the files you wish to delte, and simply just...hit delete.
