Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Lost partition I have an e260 with a little problem, well? in fact, is a big problem. At the beginning, all worked great but someday,some kind of strange-null files appeared in every directory of the player, so I proceeded to format it? bad idea. Threw me a Black Screen of Death(hahaha), ?Load main image failed blah blah??, ok, ok? I reset the system down and returned to its previous state (strange-null files were recovered, yeah?  ¬¬ ). Those crazy files makes me? mad xDDD then I tried to do something more extreme? rebuild the partition? yes, I know, I was desperated? and, in my openSuSE GNU/Linux, I deleted the entire 4GB partition of the e260? and here I am? with a working Sansa (because the device works correctly) but without partition to store my music (I can't rebuild it) any help?

This will reinstall the firmware and format the device, provided, it will still go into recovery mode.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.



Best of Luck.

I WHANT TO KNOW THE LYRICS FOR "MEAN" BY TAYLOER SWIFT!


You, with your words like knives
And swords and weapons that you use against me
You have knocked me off my feet again
Got me feeling like a nothing
You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard
Calling me out when I'm wounded
You, picking on the weaker man

Well you can take me down with just one single blow
But you don't know, what you don't know...

Someday I'll be living in a big ole city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

You, with your switching sides
And your wildfire lies and your humiliation
You have pointed out my flaws again
As if I don't already see them
I walk with my head down
Trying to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you
I just wanna feel okay again

I bet you got pushed around
Somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends right now
'Cause you can't lead me down that road
And you don't know, what you don't know...

Someday I'll be living in a big ole city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

And I can see you years from now in a bar
Talking over a football game
With that same big loud opinion
But nobody's listening
Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things
Drunk and grumbling on about how I can't sing
But all you are is mean

All you are is mean
And a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life
And mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

But someday I'll be living in a big ole city
And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so?...

Someday I'll be living in a big ole city (Why you gotta be so?...)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean (Why you gotta be so?...)
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me (Why you gotta be so?...)
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

Problem recognizing songs in sansa e260 mp3 player.


From what I'm hearing you don't have a good driver. If you still have the disk use that. If not google it or something. I have a Sansa e260 as well so I would suggest loading the songs on in windows media player rather that windows explorer. If you open Media Player and then go to sync and it does not recognize your device, then you have a bad driver. If not, then start syncing your songs that way.

Hope everything works,

Sansa e260...bad software


Ok, so I feel like an idiot....
The software did in fact get downloaded....the problem was me...(of course!)
I went to Settings on my mp3 player and went to Mode and somehow it had gotten switched from Rhapsody to the PlaysForSure mode. In the PlaysForSure mode it acts like a "normal" mp3 player and will not sync with Rhapsody....so my Rhapsody software wasn't needed in this mode. After I switched it to the Rhapsody mode everything worked like it was supposed to with my mp3 player.
The Sansa Sandisk e260r is a great little mp3 player. Everytime I've had problems with it...it's been me not understanding it.
Thanks!

A bunch of little problems!!


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 :)

How to fix "mp3 virus"??


I loaded the latest firmware and I still had the same problem. I was just on the phone to Sansa support and she said that the locking up problem is sometimes associated with removing preloaded songs. She suggested that I reformat the drive by connecting in MSC USB mode. (Change in settings on your mp3 player) Connect the mp3 player to the computer and go to MyComputer (usually on the desktop of windows XP) Right click on Sansa260 drive and move down to format. It takes a few minutes and I did disconnect while it still said writing on the mp3 screen. All files were gone and I reloaded the songs. It seems to be working fine now.
