Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I can't transfer songs to my Sansa e260

I bought my Sansa e260 and at first it worked goog. Then all of a sudden it said that I had to Sync my device to continue music subscription. I deleted songs and put them back on again. It worked for about a month and then it said it again, so I deleted the songs but when I tried to put them back on they won't show up and it says Transfer Error on Napster. I have been looking around and I can't find anything to help me.

    I have a sansa E260 and I use Napster To Go (were you sync every month and download one more song). But recently any song i tried to download from Napster said transfer error.

    When i double click on the red transfer bar a dialog box came up and said 'click here for more information', so i did, but nothing happened. It does that on both the laptop and desktop.

    And if i down load music from a CD on to my computor and the to my device that works just fine. So i was/am so confused and i finaly foun someone with the same problem.

    My Aunt saw that there was an up date available so we got that but nothing changed.

    I am having the exact same problem. I also have napster to go, and in the past, as long as I transfered one new song to the device each subscription period, the player transfered songs just fine.

    However, when I got my new laptop (the same model as my old one, a replacement due to a manufacturer defect) I was no longer able to transfer napster subscription content.

    I have talked with 3 tech support agents, 2 from sandisk and one from napster, and no one has been able to help. The napster agent said the drivers were not installing correctly with ERM protected content. The licenses are fine. The Sandisk agent tried to help, but ultimately said I need a desktop to update the firmware, as my laptop is not recognizing my player in MSC mode. I have no access to a desktop though! Can anyone help?

    Same issue here...have had Napster for probably a year, things worked fine, and then this billing cycle, can't seem to synch the songs at all. I tried downloading and transferring new songs, and gets about 50% through the download/transfer and then it says "tracks transferred to your player" but the download status shows that the track has an error. And of course, the file isn't there. Unfortunately, it's not updating my existing licenses and I can't add new songs, so not sure what to do.
