Type in (drive here):\MUSIC to access the music folder or ..VIDEO for video folder. Then it acts like a hard drive.

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 themselfs then format a couple of times hope this works

Try and drag and drop from your music folder to the media folder on the player make sure usb mode is msc this will show you all the folders Use your windows explorer for the transfer... much easier...If you don't have copies of your music copy to a folder on the computer2.gif first

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..... make sure your usb 2.0 driver is installed..Syncing to wmplayer puts music in the mtp music folder. change usb modes again and use the explorer to see the sansa msc lets you sync any Q/A IM or email me @ [email protected]

Sansa e260

For everyone having e260 problems here is the answer. First make sure that you have your usb mode on msc before plugging in to the computer. Then go to folder options and select show hidden folders. You now have access to the music folders and can delete music. You can create a new folder or use the music folder for your music. To prevent future problems go to properties on the hidden folders and unhide them.

Music files

Hi. I hope this info would help: Your Sansa E260 has 2 modes: MTP (Music Transfer Protocol) and MSC (Mass Storage Class). Your Operating System recognizes each mode differently, and music files saved in one mode would not be seen when you switch to the other mode, and vice versa. Try switching to each of these modes, then plug it to your computer and browse the player. To switch modes, use the following menu navigation: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode This would give the choice of MTP and MSC.
