Mp3 vs mp4

I dragged files from my itunes and the player m250 will recognize and play mp3 but not mp4 which is most of my itunes files. It accepted the mp4 and shows on the computer but they do not show on the player itself. Any ideas?

Hi Richards147,

Have you tried importing the file from your PC to the Sansa m250 directly rather than from iTunes?


You can also try converting your mp4 files from iTunes into mp3.
You will need to re-import your original files into mp3 format. You will need to change also your import settings to Mp3 encoder on iTunes. You can find this by choosing from the Menu bar of iTunes "Edit--->Preferences--->General---->Import Settings--->Import using : Mp3 encoder.

Regards.

My MP3 won't download music


I was having this same problem, but the solution I came up with was forehead-slappingly simple. I merely put the files on my MP3 player manually, using drag-and-drop from the itunes music file folder (not from within the program) to the device storage folders.



I can\'t say if this will work for all MP3 players (ours is a Sony walkman), as they need to be able to play m4a files. But after trying a dozen ways to get WMP to recognize the m4a, and trying to get itunes to recognize the players (including trying 3rd party addons which would have had to completely erase the player to start with)... I just figured I\'d try just drag and drop and to my surprise, it worked perfectly, absolutely no problems. I\'m listening to my itunes-purchased music on the MP3 player right now.

What happens if my files are mp4


You will need to convert your mp4 files to mp3 for them to play in the Sansa M250. You can download a free converter at:

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

this unit doesnt recognize ITUNE files, because ITUNES are MP4, you have to convert the audio files to MP3 first. Once they are converted, you can add to your Coby unit, here is a guide on how to convert in ITUNES:

My mp4 player (phillips) won't play certain songs that I have ripped from my vista


1) The file is not in a format recognized by the player - Philips only recognizes mp3 and wma files, so it will not play iTunes1.gif files, for instance
2) The file you are transferring has DRM encryption, and your player does not support DRM-encryption (or the reverse - the file does not have encryption, and needs to be encrypted)

BTW, most Philips players were not automatically created for Vista. You may need to download the Vista compatible version of the software at www.usasupport.philips.com, or you may run into problems with this player in the future.

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.
