Hi, I’ve got an e260 and can’t seem to connect in MTP mode, which seems to be the reason I can’t transfer a playlist to my player. I can do the individual songs of a playlist through WMP 10, but the playlist itself does not show up under Music->Playlists. The only one there is the GoList. Yes, I have looked at the videos and they don’t solve my problem.
So, I read through several postings and the answers and it seems that connecting in MTP mode is the way to get a playlist to transfer. So I tried setting my player to MTP, and I can hear the tone XP plays when it recognizes a new device, but I don’t see the player anywhere under “My Computer”. I opened up Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager and I find the player listed under “Portable Devices->Sansa e260”. Looking at the properties of it, the status says “The drivers for this device are not installed.”.
Where do I find the device driver(s) for the player? The CD that came with it only has the user’s guide and the media converter program as far as I can tell. If I let XP look for it on the internet, it comes back saying it can’t be found.
I’m pretty sure I used to be able to connect MTP but I believe that was on an older laptop I no longer have.
Any ideas about the device driver? I assume once I can connect successfully in MTP mode, I can transfer the playlists and not just the songs ON the playlist.
