Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Turns off and on

I have a similar problem that someone else reported. I purchased my mp3 player about a year ago and just yesterday, when I began syncing files from Windows Media Player, for some reason, the player turns off. It happens only when I try to sync music. Connected to my PC, it's fine and it charges. Please help! nicole

As a last resort....don't sync it. Set the player to MTP mode and drag-and-drop files from your PC folder(s). Don't know about WMA files tho--might want to just stick with mp3..?

I have an AA file that I downloaded from audible.com, it's a book. When I try to sync it to the Sony Walkman from Windows Media Play, I get an error. The error says "Windows Media Player cannot sync...


The "AA" file type is not supported in the NWZ MP3 players. However, you are still able to place audiobooks onto your player if you convert the file to one of the supported file audio formats: MP3. WMA, AAC-LC, and PCM. Remember that there are several iterations of MP3, such as variable bit rate and frequency range and the player does not play some of them.

What I do is that I pull the file into Audacity and convert it there. Another option is that if you can burn the audiobook onto a CD, you can then rip to WMP and then sync it to your player. That is how I get my language audiobooks onto my player. The last option, which I have never tried, is to get it into ITunes, then sync it to your player that way. ITunes will automatically convert the file before syncing it onto the player.

Hope that helps.

I would try dragging and dropping files into the player by opening it in my computer instead of syncing the files. I had this problem, but on a different player and it fixed mine.

Can't put songs on it


Hi Amarine

I too have the same problem ( see my comment on the forum). I brought my YP mp3 a year ago and if i had known that Samsung's aftercare service would be so appauling i would NOT have purchased their products

The player was working ok / on and off for a few months , but then when i tried to delete or add sungs a message was say " You have to disconnect Windows Media Player before processing". Now Windows Media player doesnt automatically load so how is this? i thought .. So i tried not connecting to the internet - same message came up

When i contacted Samsungs who was EVER SO UNHELPFUL , they turned and said it is a software issue with my pc even though the PC is brand new

Their advisors was just as rude and clueless as the managers of Samsung

I regret the day i ever brought one of their products and urge others not to purchase any others


If someone who is technically minded can advise me on what i can do , i would appreciate it

Sansa e200 Fragmented File Issues


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Insignia NS-4V24 sync error


Most likely a issue in the FAT or similar table. The tables used on the internal memory is allocated only for short files names since most media managers change the file names to fit 8.3 dos. They do this since mp3 and mwa audio files use id tagging. So try renaming your mp3's that its eight letters or numbers then the three letter extension .mp3 = rap0001.mp3

Sync'ing to my MP3 player "did not fit on device"


I had the same problem, and found out a solution. The reason no more files fit even though there is room is that the File Allocation Table can only fit so many entries. Your's must be at the limit. What you do is create a folder under the main folder and copy files there. It should work.
