Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

Open Question

Windows Media Player, can`t write, atc

I have had my Sansa for about 6 months and just today it began giving me problems.

It was very slow changing from one folder to another while playing

It was slow in responding to commands when playing (i.e. skipping to next song)

When syncing with Windows Media Player I would get an error msg and was unable to update my sync.

It gave me an error msg when formatting

It froze frequently

Was not recognized by the computer ....

YIKES!!!!!

I am not sure what the problem(s) is/are. Any advice?

Thanks

Karen

SOURCE: Sansa E260- Cannot delete songs/ won't respond to modified files.

Would this work for the opposite problem ? I did drag-drop files and now see them on the device but computer does not...so, can't delete them from the device without deleting everything that is on it. Would this be a problem with the MTP / MSC mode ??
thank you...I am fed up too.

It wont read in windows media player but i unplug it does but every time i plug it in it just makes it slow


If you recently updated the software online it may have changed the USB setting on your sansa. Go into settings - USB mode and select MPT. Windows media player should then recognise your sansa. Hope this helps.

With a Sansa Clip+ only work with Rhapsody? I don't want to have to pay for an account and then also pay for the songs as well.


No, Sansa players work with many types of music files and computers.
You may want to post details about your computer-- Mac, Windows, or Linux?
Also, what computer software do you use for music-- MediaMonkey? Windows Media Player?
Assuming you are using Windows XP--
You may already have songs on your Win XP computer, in Windows Media Player. If so, you can synchronize your player with Win Media Player-- This will load all the songs from your computer onto the Sansa, space permitting.

You can also copy files directly to the Sansa player, just as you copy files to a flash drive:

1) Configure the Sansa Player as a removable drive.
With player unplugged, go to Settings > System Settings > USB Mode
Select MSC

2) Plug the Sansa player into your computer.
The computer will recognize it as a flash drive, and will assign a drive letter.

3) Open Windows Explorer.
Find the directory on your computer that contains music files.
Copy and paste music files into the Music directory on your Sansa player.

4) Using the green arrow, bottom left on the system tray, safely shut down the Sansa player.

5) When you unplug it, the player will spend a minute or two updating its files.

6) Your music should be available to play.

If you are running things on a system other than Win XP, please post more details--
Someone may give you a more exact solution.

Best of luck!

Sansa E260- Cannot delete songs/ won't respond to modified files.


In order to sync the files with media player the device must be in MTP mode MSC mode is used for drag/drop file updating. try setting MTP and then sync it or just open the drive file in my computer in either mode to update the file list.

My computer and sansa mp3 player


The older C-100 required you to change your settings on your main menu.
Main Menu
Settings
Auto Detect or MSC comes up
If you have Windows Media Player 10, choose auto-detect.
If yo uhave Window Media Player 9 or earlier, choose MSC. Happy listening.
(You probably just forget about that little settings change on your old one).
I'm not sure if the M-200 has the same settings thing, but hopefully it does, cause that's the only solution I have for today!

Sansa Shaker is locking up Windows Media Player


Uninstall all of the Sansa software completely, and see if Windows Media Player behaves normally. If it does not, then uninstall Windows Media Player. Reinstall Windows Media Player first. Then reinstall the Sansa software. Then and only then, plug the Sansa back into the computer. Good luck!

The issue you have described with your portable device in most cases can be resolved by formatting your device. Please follow these steps even if you have already attempted them once before.





Please note that this will remove all music from your device.





Formatting the device in Windows Media Player





1. Open Windows Media Player with your MP3 player connected to the computer





2. At the top of windows Media Player select the Sync tab at the top





3. The MP3 player should be recognized on the right hand side and say "Your Player Name"





4. Above the player name is a button that says "Format Storage Media" click this button to erase all the data from the player





5. Continue with the acknowledgement of erasing all data on disk.

6.Go to sandisk.com to get a firmware upgrade for your device...

Finding the music to delete


Use Media Monkey instead, or change Windows Media Player's configuration, so that it sees more songs.
