Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Wont load any songs

Here's my problem: I put all my songs on, but every time I plug it in to the computer it erases a few more songs. I tried putting them back on with Windows Media Player but somehow EVERYTHING got erased: all my songs, photos and videos. It's plugged into the computer now, but what it does is it stays connected for about 5 seconds, then says it's writing, then the screen goes fuzzy and it restarts itself. It keeps doing this over and over again and it won't ler me sync it. What to I do???

Are you unplugging it everytime you put a song in it? if you are then the harddrive in the player will stop working until the whole song is in the player. also it maybe the player has a backup flow that if you keep adding it erases one song at a time. some players do that. dont let the battery run dead either keep it at half way all batteries in players like that dont last long when the batteries is used all the way i hope i helped you out good luck on the player.

IPOD SHUFFLE 1 GB SECOND GENERATION DOESN'T SEEM TO BE SYNCING PROPERLY AS SONGS JUMP TO THE NEXT SONG AFTER PLAYING A PERCENTAGE OF A SONG. tHIS PROBLEM SEEMS SOMEWHAT RANDOM BUT WITH HIGH FREQUENCY....


You will need to wipe it clean then put all your songs back into it. Try using a different computer and then put iTunes on it and that should erase it all and then just load your Ipod back up with your music. What happens is that if the Ipod can't read the song, it stutters, tries to play that part, and sometimes skips songs.

If it persists, try backing up all your songs to your computer, and then go into the player's settings and hit Erase internal memory. Then put your songs back on the player. The erase option actually reformats the memory. Very occasionally they can get file system problems that can cause strange things like this to happen.

Wont put songs on


I would wait for the writing message to go away before disconnecting the player - this is the standard message it will give you when you are transferring songs to the player. If it still says writing after 5 minutes (this is assuming you are not trying to load more than 20 songs at once), then you might have a real problem.

Make sure the files you are trying to load do not have DRM encryption on them, and also make sure they are in mp3 or wma format.

If you have Windows Media Player 11:
Quick Method 1 - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Quick Method 2 - Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Motorola Krazor memory card


your phone may have a root folder limitation on how many it can see in the root , try creating a folder and dropping them into that.
or take all the songs off and use the phone to format/erase the card , then put the songs back and see it that helps.

Samsung Juke Music Issue


Had the same problem with being able to load MP3 songs onto the phone but they would not play. Elapsed song time indicator remained at 0.00.

In Windows Media Player, select Sync Menu......then Samsung Juke........then Format. The warning states that you will lose all data. This only pertains to the songs that you cannot get to work anyway. Your stored phone #'s will still be there after the reformat.

I reformatted and reloaded the MP3's and everythings now works just fine.

Delete songs


You should be able to hook your mp3 player up to your computer with the USB cable. This will allow you to browser the directory where the songs are and delete or add new songs. Your mp3 player will appear in your computer as a removable disk. The songs that you put on your mp3 player need to be in mp3 or wma format. I also found the instruction manual for your product in pdf format. http://www.gpx.com/shop_ind.php?id=%20%20344#
