My Sansa e260 will not turn on an hour after listening to it without me having to hold down the center and power button down for about 10 mins each and it is really starting to frustrate me. I usually have to hold down the center button for about 5 mins, and then the power button for 10, and the blue light will turn on the little circle around the center button. After that its 10 mins holding the center button, and 15 holding the power button. I'm getting really frustrated.

Check to see if you have a boot file in one of the folders this is from starting the computer with the sansa connected if this doesn't work try to Reset All NOTE: THIS IS AN ADVANCED OPERATION AND RESTORES ALL SETTINGS TO THE FACTORY DEFAULTS. NORMAL USERS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED TO PERFORM THIS OPERATION! If your device freezes up press the Menu button and hold for 15 seconds. This is like a power down of the device. Once you perform the reset, the adjustments you made during last operation will be gone.....
IF that doesn't work try to recover...download the update software and install then lock your sansa hold in the rec key on the left at the same time push the menu/power button this will take you to recovery mode then connect to the computer Star the update software if it doesn't start automatic goto /start /all programs /Sandisk/sansa updater/ sansa updater and start it up manually... follow instructions on the updater and the sansa hope this works.... Please rate I believe you already have the software/firmware
Hold the power/menu button down for at LEAST 20 seconds, then let it go. Connect it to your computer, and it shoud begin to respond. This happened because there was a power glich in the system, and reseting the Mp3 player is what was needed. :) Hopw this helps all of you e260 users! :)
You need to use the sansa media converter program that came with the sansa on the CD. This is used for photos and for video. The supported files are listed on the screen once you open it.You shouldnt have any problems transferring music to it using that program
I had the same issue as everyone else. Here is how I fixed it:
1: unplugged it from my computer
2: Made sure hold is OFF (toggled back and forth to be sure)
3: Held the record button and then hit power.
