Help me with my Sandisk M260 4GB player...

by jcr1776 / February 8, 2006 9:59 AM PST

I just bought my M260, loaded about 60 or 70 mp3 songs on it through Windows Media Player. As soon as I unhooked it the display said Please wait Rebuilding the library. It's said this for over 2 1/2 hours. And I can't turn it off, no buttons work. I'm afraid to take the battery out 'cause I don't want to interfere if it's doing something neccesary. But I think 2 - 3 hours is way too long. What the!?!?!?!

I have the M250 which is just the 2mb. I get the same "rebuiding Library" message but only for like 20 sec max

I am guessing if you did not take the battery out it has run out on its own. so my response may be outdated already BUT...

here is what I would try:
1) Unplug it from PC (if still plugged, in, I am guessing it is not)

2)Pull the battery

3) Put Battery back in - hopefully it does not go right back to rebuilding library message

4) Plug MP3 back into computer, go to windows media and clear out all the songs.

5) Re-transfer the songs. maybe only do 20-30 so that it only take a few minutes

6) When you go to unplug the MP3 player this time FIRST go to that icon that allows you to safely eject hardward. I think you should hit that first to shut down the device

7) Then unplug the device
