Problem with Sandisk e270

To put music on my sandisk e270 i have just been dragging and dropping the files on to the player. This seems to work the majority of the time however sometimes i will end up with the player listing tracks multiple times (using windows shows only one copy of the track) and i also have a track listed on the player that isnt there/wont play and is unable to be seen in windows. I certain it isnt a problem with compatibility all the tracks are wma so should all be fine.

Re: Problem with Sandisk e270

I have a question: how do you change the summary of an mp3 file. The message box doesn't allow me to just change it right on the spot.

Re: Problem with Sandisk e270

All files need to have filenames and titles ("title" field in the summary under file properties on your PC). Otherwise the player will list it as "unknown" and it will NOT play. You have to drag it out of the player, rename, and then drag it back, if you're in MTP mode (which you SHOULD be!). Multiple copies of the same track sounds like you have some tracks listed under different artist names--you gotta keep a clean library!! Go back and check all the summary attributes for your mp3 files... Of course, you're using WMA files so who the heck knows. I would be sticking with mp3 format, if you want my opinion.......

How do you put music on it? I have it connected.

1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3. Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player?s memory are displayed. 4. Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer?s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5. Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

Message You don't have a permit to enter file.

Use Windows Media Player to transfer the music files - the drag and drop method does not work well with this particular player.

Formated the SanDisk Sansa E280

You dragged & dropped files in recovery mode? Recovery mode is only for re-installing the firmware or formatting the device if it is unresponsive. If you are wanting to drag and drop files onto the device, the music needs to be put into the Music folder on the device. If you do not see the Music folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your PC. Best of Luck. p.s. - you can add to this question this doesnt work.
