The weirdest thing happened when trying to put music on my Sansa M250. I had burned a CD to my computer, then proceeded to drag and drop the sound files into the player. I got half-way through before it began telling me, "Cannot Copy SONG: The directory or file cannot be created." Any help?
Don't use drag-and-drop. Sansa's emulation of a drive apopears to be buggy (see the outstanding problems on this site). Run WMP, open the CD, and select all the audio files you want to transfer to the Sansa. Then click on Sync and select "sync current playlist to Sansa m250" and let it run until the counter reaches 100%. That's using WMP 11.

Hi Butterfly, This is Gheng try to copy the songs in ur Computer then you dragged it in ur burn list if ur done, insert ur blank Cd to ur DVD Rom the click burn, wait until it finished... Good luck! Enjoy....
Have you tried this?
Open up Windows Media Player. Go to the options menu, and choose privacy settings.
Make sure Set Clock on Devices Automatically is checked. Then hit okay.
Close Media Player. Connect your MP3 player to the computer and reopen Media Player. That SHOULD synchronize the clock automatically.
ok, plug the mp3 into your computer, click on my computer, then where it says removable devices you should see your mp3 listed, double click it. browse the folders listed until you find the songs that you want to delete , when you find one you want gone RIGHT click it then click delete/ It should then remove the song from your mp3 and put it into your recycling bin.
First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:
) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB". 2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".
Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.
However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.
To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:
- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode - Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list - Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings" - Check "Synchronize device automatically" - Set "View" to "All Playlists" - Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device - Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.
The Sansa m250 requires a separate folder to load your songs to in order to achieve the full 2 GB. Set your USB to MSC. Plug it into your computer. Create a folder TUNES. Then drag and drop your mp3 or wma files to this new folder.
