Someone else mentioned this problem....I thought it might be that some files have different artist names (or vice versa?). You really have to keep a clean library with proper summary fileds (artist, title, track number, etc.). First of all, you should always be using MTP mode (USB mode in Sansa player settings). MTC mode is problematic. Are you using WMA or mp3 files? The other person had the same problem using WMA files....maybe using mp3s would fix this.

Cannot delete the songs on mp3

I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'

1)Plug in
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else

Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really,  the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device. 
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.

E250 message "synchronize to continue your music subscription"

The songs that are giving you this message are in WMA - the music service that was used to download them either has an expired subscription, or you have to resynchronize that player to that music service (whether it was Rhapsody or not). Also, the songs that are giving you this message might have had fixed-term licenses, and now the licenses have expired. Here are your options:
1) Renew the music service subscription
2) If it is renewed, then resynchronize your player to that music service
3) Convert those songs to mp3 format (probably illegal)
4) Remove the DRM encryption from those songs (definitely illegal)

Those are your choices.

I can't put songs on my Sansa Sandisk e250....

You must have the automatic synchronization option checked - go to and enter "windows media player manual sync" as your search term - it will give you click-by-click instructions with pictures on how to disable the automatic synchronization; it will also, give you pictures on how to sync a song.

Mp3 format??? HELP, PLEASE!

I don't know about converting the MP3s to WMAs, but I had the same problem with "corrupt files."
What fixed that for me was instead of dragging and dropping files onto the Sansa, I synchronized them using Windows Media player, but only do 10-20 songs at a time, because if you try to do too many, they probably won't show up. I know it's tedious and annoying, but that's what did it for mine :) I hope this helps.

SanDisk Sansa E260:"synchronize to continue your music acount"(another problem, yet again)

it means that you need to synchronize your music instead of just highlighting it and pressing copy. It shows up when you have done that and it would play the song until you do what is above.
