Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

Weird Random Happenings

My Sansa does some weird things for apparently no reason. It won't load some songs, will double whole albums for show multiples of random albums which turn out to be empty, lists averything out of alphaetical order when a few days ago they were in order and when I wipe the system it still shows several albums and artists (some duplicates) but all empty. Also, when I follow the steps for upgrading the firmware it didn't recognise the device, and I tried it several times. Also, it won't recognize the command to "Reset All." If the specific piece I have ever came with software I don't have it anymore and I'm getting so frustrated that if I wasn't on a time constraint I'm seriously considering smasking it to bits and buying a new one, lol!

Please help.

If you're constantly updating your database of music or you're constantly making changes toyour files then your media player may be trying to update itself unsuccessfully, unfortunately this doesn't offer the option to automatically erase your old files. Under your media and synching options try to turning off your auto-synch option. Disabling this option or making it manual will have the disadvantage of not updating your subscribed music, but may keep songs that you already have in your database and on your media player from doubling up.

I have MiTone mitmp32 , bought week ago in duty free shop in Netherlands. The problem is, when i try to change the album or artist in the main music menu, it always gets back to a specific song(album) that...

I have the same problem and it irritates me like crazy. A weird thing that seems to work is when you want to switch off your mp3 player, put it on pause and let it switch itself off automatically. When you next switch it on, it will be on that same song and not some random one you listened to ages ago. Seems to work for me. Do you have any idea how to play music on shuffle by the way?

Album Art not showing up on player

Connect mp3 player to computer
Open Windows Media Player
Go to Sync tab
A list of the songs on your mp3 player should show up
Right click the songs, and go to advanced tag editor - change the album art for each song

One more thing to keep in mind for the Sansa e200 series:
For correct Album Work functionality, the album art and associated music file may
need to be located in the same folder. See preloaded content as an example.

Sansa won't allow me to add new Mp3s

ok. first, you need to change the id3 tag in your mp3 files by right clicking it, selection properties, and then under information, change the album and artist name to what you desire.


for playlist, make a playlist in windows media and save it, then change the extension to .plp

Weird notice on sansa e200 player

hehe. mine had the same thing. exact same. no lie. i think it means you have a virus on it. im not 100% percent sure though so dont destroy it just yet.

have you tried putting it into recovery mode? to do this simply plug it into your computer, then push the hold button so the orange is showing. Next, you want to push AND hold the record button AND the power button at the same time. After a few seconds it should reset to factory settings. i hope it works for you. i haven't had time to fix mine yet becuase i lost the cable that plugs into your computer =p cant do it without it!
