Question about SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Won't play the songs in the right sequence even when files No correctly, How can I make it play them in order

I am going on a long road trip - just brought this MP3 player as I have no CD player in my car. I have a talking book on there to break up the boredom of just music. However now that I have added the files to the MP3 (after numerous attempts at changing the file names) it doesn't play the chapters in order at all.
Please please help me if you can as I don't have any other options. My Partner is an IT tech and he's stumped too!

Samsung YP-U3 mp3 - Can't get my songs to play in certain order


I've never seen a MP3 player that you can select the order in which multiple songs are played, unless you do it manually or only have the song you want to play on it.
I think your efforts will be in vane.  Sorry

Mine won't play files


The songs are in the wrong format - it does not recognize iTunes songs or DRM-encrypted songs which do not have "transfer rights" (many msuic services - especially free ones but also paid ones - give you WMA's that have "play rights" -i.e. you can play them on your computer; but if they do not have transfer rights, they will show up in your player, yet not play correctly/skip).

Transfer only songs that are in Mp3 Format and you will never have this problem.

Shows there are no files


Actually, you do not have the same problem - random deletion is caused by DB corruption, and can be solved by updating the player's firmware at www.rcapearl.com

Hi i just got an mp3 modelm4282-r when i ripped songs from my computer to the device it placed them in various orders instead of by the album sequence in which they were ripped. the computer showed the...


You didn't do anything wrong - some mp3 players only organize tracks alphabetically.I don't know if that player lists a manufacturer other than Nokia, but it looks like you got a cheap custom-build or clone. All you can do is make sure that all of the information is correct in the ID3 tags, use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs/playlists to the player, and double-check the manual to see if they have Setting to change the order in which tracks are played.

A workaround would be to alpabetically change the names of the songs so that they play in the order you want, but on some mp3 players you cannot change that alphabetical order problem.

Song or file order is not correct


Funny problem. I guessed you already checked the options to see it is not playing shuffle or by artist. It might get them sorted by the File_ID3 - try editing this with winamp or windows media player and see if it helps.

Song problem (SanDisk 4gb


This is going to take some investigation on your part. First of all, make sure that the correct song works on your PC. That is, if you launch Don't Wanna Miss A Thing on your PC and Bout It plays, then it's the media file, not the Sansa player. Make sure you launch the specific media file from Windows, NOT from your media player software. You want to check the FILE first. (Reverse the files too - launch Bout It and see what plays) If the files are right, then launch them from your media player software. If they're wrong when you play them from the media player software, check the properties of the song. If everything is okay on the PC, then check the Sansa. If you are directly launching the music file on the Sansa (that is, not from a playlist) and it's wrong, then put the Sansa in MSC mode and check the file. Drag it to your PC and launch it. If it's wrong, replace it. If your launching the file from a playlist, just redo the playlist with the correct file after you've finished your troubleshooting.

Song Names show up incorrectly on ILO Mp3 player. Wrong format?


The funny~.mp3 names are usually because the title field is not filled in in the mp3 property tags, so it uses the DOS version of the filename for the title. Under windows, right click the song and select properties->summary->advanced, and make sure that the title field under "description" has what you want in it. I don't think even the makers of Ilo know how it organizes the files.
