Cannot Copy Music

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.

    ...want to mention that the "buggy drive emulation" turns out to be actually a matter of poor ducumentation of what the SETTINGS > USB selections mean. Any wierd problem with the Sansa, try changing that setting first.

Sansa M250 MP3 player and Yahoo Music Service


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.

My playlists from sansa m250 disappeared but when i connected ..


When transfering the songs from computer to player. First, sync device before transfering. Only do this the very first time. If you try to sync with songs already on the player, they will be erased.

To test the device. Open your comuters music file folder, keep folder open, than go to start menu, go to my computer and open the folder (D: or F: folder) It will have your player listed there.

Now with both folders open, take a song from the music folder, drag it to the sansa folder and drop it in there. It should be added to player.

Sansa m250 playlists


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.

Hope this helps

Not enough space for Music DB, please free 8 MB


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.

Can not remove files from sansa


Windows Media Player is a little temperamental when it comes to music on the device.

You can manually manage the music from My Computer>Device Name (m250)>MUSIC Folder.

You can drag & drop files onto the device from here, as well as, right click and delete them.




Best of Luck.
