I have had my e260 for a couple months now, and I have uploaded and offloaded music and pics and all from it just fine
Now, even when I go and Drag Music files into the player, it will finish copying, they're there, I can see them. Yet, once I start up the player, it says there are no music tracks on the player. I have tried deleting & re-copying my collection numerous times with no avail...

Re: e260 Won't detect my music
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

Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.
If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put
it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be
instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced
your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your
camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.
From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any
editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in
your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC
(you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into
the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to
the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from
the card while it's in the camera.
Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've
offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be
sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full
functionality of your memory card.
If you're talking about a USB cable with the "Mini-B" connector that goes in the camera, you or someone else could have stepped on it or yanked it somehow. I have had a couple cables like that get bent to the point they won't work. If the cable looks straight still, then it could be something else. But its a thought.
Have you tried re-formatting while in MSC mode? I've had quite a bit of success with repairing some memory issues with simple reformat. (Fat32). My wife's was showing almost no memory and no music at all. I reformatted and reloaded her music and it works great!
the sansa media converter is only used for videos and pictures.
for song you go to my computer and u will see that it says sansa e260 you click on it then it will have files for music vieos pictures and recoding click on music and drag ur music on to it.
Tell us more about the everything! You habe connected to USB cable from camera to Computer - Yes? Switched on the Camera and set to 'Upload - Yes? If you have installed the software disk- uninstall it and let the Computer sort it- which it can. Are you using an external card reader- which is preferable to uploading from camera by the way. Just tell me more.
To upload files from your E260 to your computer, you can do the following:
Browse the player on your Windows Explorer. Under "Windows Explorer", your player should appear as an icon under "Portable Audio Devices" or as a "Removable Drive" with a corresponding drive letter. This really depends on the mode your player is in -- MTP or MSC mode.
Set your Windows Explorer to "Show Hidden Files or Folders". The folder containing your music files on the player is a hidden folder, so make sure you go to "Tools" menu on your Explorer window, then select "Folder Options", then select the "View" tab, then enable the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button
If your player is set to MTP, you would find the sub folder called "PPI NAND". Open this folder and you would see a list of sub-folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files
If your player is set to MSC, open the drive letter corresponding to your E260 and you see a list of folders, one of which is labeled "Music". Open that and you would see your music files.
Select the music files you want and copy them to your local hard drive
I hope the info helps.
