        Sorry to ask the obvious, but have you changed the player into mass
storage (MSC) mode rather than the MTP mode used by media players? This is
done through the settings item in the original firmware. It sounds like
it's still acting as a media player rather than a drive. See the
instructions at
        which say
Warning: The following steps require you to change the setting in Settings
íŠ USB Mode to MSC from within the original firmware. Never extract files
to your player while it is in recovery mode.

Subject: installing rockbox on the sansa e280

I've just bought a sandisk sansa e280
but when I try to copy the .rockbox folder on to the player
all I get is "cannot copy file the file 'a52.codec' is not supported on
this device this device can only accept audio, playlist, audio album and
folder files."
and the options "skip, skip all, and cancel"
I have also tried to unzip the zip file directly on to the player but my
unzip utility "Winrar" cannot find the sansa e280 in My Computer.
Any help would be much appreciated.
