SOURCE: my sansa e260 stopped working after unsuccessful formatting

I have guys, I just spoke with the Sansa representative. Even if you have Windows Vista, you do not need a drive for e260 given that Vista carries that drivers for it. If you have tried the steps above, but you Sansa still did not format successfully after using the recoverty tool. This is what you do:

Set you Sansa e260 in recovery mode

- set it to hold
- hold rec
- connect to computer while you are holding rec
- device should be now in recovrey mode
- go to my computer
- go to the folder 16B format
- you will see a text file
- don't worry about
- add a new folder and name Sansa.fmt
- wait up to 2 minutes
- message on your device should say formatting
- wait a few minutes for formatting to take place
- stop the device by removing it safely using windows Safely device removal tool on bottom right corner of your screen
- disconneting your Sansa and you should see a message upgrade finished, Sansa has been restored or something like that
- Power your Sansa on, and Bwala!!! your Sansa is back to normal.

Good luck

SOURCE: sansa mp3 shaker

First, don't plug the shaker into the computer, go get an SD card reader available pretty much anywhere, I use a Targus reader that turns an SD card into a USB thumb drive, before I got it (it was $8.88 at wallyworld(Wal*Mart)) I used a multimedia reader.

First thing you do, format the card, and make sure the MP3 files you put on the card are at least 128bit, Constant Bit Rate (CBR) [DO NOT USE VBR, IT WILL CRASH THE PLAYER], High Quality, Stereo, Original.

You can get these settings with the LAME encoder that adds on to AudioGrabber when you rip a disc. (Both AG and LAME are FREEWARE)

I have not ever had my shaker connected to my computer(s), just the cards, and I use mine daily at work to keep me sane, and I switch the cards a lot.

I do hope this helps!

Goodman mp3 player

be sure that the music on your itunes is on mp3 format. most music files on itunes are on aac, check this on the file properties. when you connect your mp3 player to your pc using USB cable try to go to my computer and you will see a new drive in there usually it says removable drive. just copy and paste the music file to that drive.
