Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
A couple days ago i put some songs onto my Sansa e250, but i couldn't listen to them, when i disconnected it from the computer. I would click on the songs and it would just freeze for 2 seconds and skip to the next song. Then i connected my Sansa back to the computer and I put the same songs again onto it again. It appeared on the screen when i turned it on, but i still couldn't play it. What can i do?
I restored settings to default factory settings and has been working and not skipping the songs. Restoring to factory settings does not delete any of your data/songs

You have added write protected songs to your player and your player does not recognize DRM protected songs, therefore it just skips over them. Write protection is very hard to remove. Most players will not recognize these files.

Set your sansa to rhapsody mode,plug back into the computer and wait for about 5 min. and then eject it and it should play the songs that wouldn't play at first..........

The sansa does this on mp3 songs too...it has to do with bit rate not drm...sansa plays wma drm too as it is plays for sure compliant.

I had the same problem. To easily remove write protection, there is an easy-to-use (and free) program. It's called FairUse4, or FU4WMver13.zip. You can download a virus-free copy here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=2BQANXGF I've tested it on my files. Good luck, and hope it works.

On the computer, all you have to do, is find the details of your song, then unselect skip when shuffle!! It worked for my cousin..

You'd need to record these songs without the DRM you may be able to record it to cd and rip it with other software that can ignore the DRM

SOURCE: Skipping songs
We could try formatting the player and after the format has been complete try updating the firmware of the player. Change the settings fo the player to MSC then connect to your computer, open my computer and right-click the player and choose format remove the tick mark on the quick format and after the format has been completed. Unplug the device and go to the sandisk website and download the firmware update and install it and when it ask you to connect the device hook the plyer and perform the update for the player. Note: It may be the songs on the player are not that properly transferred that why it is skipping and also the player might also have had bad sectors that is why we have formatted the player. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my songs won't play
First, download the file FS-MP3Fix.
After downloading the file, extract it to the folder where all of the affected music files are. So you should have the folder FS-MP3Fix which contains ffmpeg (that looks like a MS-DOS based program), FSMP3-Fix (this is the program that we are going to use) and a DLL file named pthreadGC2.dll.
But, we need those three files to be paste in to the folder where the music are, because the program will only read the directory where the music are in. If it finds no Mp3 files, the program will never work. So, paste the three (3) files in the folder where your Mp3s are.
Okay, let's get it started. Open the FSMP3-Fix program.
You will see a DOS-based window and you have to choose which language are you going to use (English or Spanish) or just exit the program. So, we choose English (and don't ask me why) which is no. 2.
You are going to be asked if you want to continue the fixing of your Mp3 files (of course) that these actions are not reversible (well, if you want that strange playback to continue then why are you reading this, peace).
Okay, after pressing Enter key, the program starts working. You will see the process of calculating bitrates of your Mp3 files and you'll be amazed that there are files created in the folder of your music files with _FS name at the end. If in case, the program does not stop working (which is always my problem) press and hold q to stop duplicating other copies again. The program create three duplicate copies which is a headache for me. If you find _FS okay, then remove the songs with added filename with _FS_FS and FS_FS_FS, because they are all the same.
Copy the songs again on the player
Then, play it,it should work.
