I bought a Sansa e260 mp3 player a few weeks ago. My previous player, also a Sansa, has stopped connecting on the right channel, it's the connection inside the player and not the headset.
The Sansa was a bargain at 4GB for $128, colour screen, can also play video and hold photos, if converted via the Sansa media converter.
I'm a big podcast listener, which is my main use for the Sansa, so it's a great player to have for that purpose. For the first time, I'm synching my mp3 player using Windows Media Player, not sure if I can synch both ways but it's working from PC to player, where before I just copied and deleted straight to disc.
I've always been one to run manual downloads, by spotting the new podcast on RSS, but not automating the file download, so maybe it's time to automate and use iTunes or something.
A few things I can't work out yet. When I delete a podcast from the PC playlist and then synch, it of course updates the playlist on the Sansa, but as far as I can make out, it doesn't delete the actual file on the Sansa, which means my player is filling up, and using a playlist means each song is in it's own folder, which is a pain to clean up.
And other thing that has really irritated me, is I bought the Sansa e260 thinking it was the most up to date version, only to find out there is a Version 1 and Version 2. I think I have a v1, because it won't work with Audible which only works with v2. A firmware update, doesn't load the latest v1 firmware, and certainly doesn't update to v2. Bloody hell; just a minor irritant to a good value for money player. No wonder the price was so good for 4GB, they're getting rid of the V1s!
