Videos won't synchronize from windows media player to sansa e250 mp4 player

You need to use the supplied Sansa Media Converter program to convert videos (and photos) to a format the Sansa can handle. If you don't have the SMC, you can download the Windows version here.

Sansa e250 computer problems

Try using Windows Media Player instead, and see if you get the same result. If it loads in Windows Media Player, then the problem is with WinAmp and not your Mp3 player. When you say it loads half-way, do you mean it loads half the songs and then shuts off? Is the Sansa running on low battery? WinAmp has some kind of update released in the past week - did you download the update, and then experience the problem? It's probably not this, because other users have had the same problem that you are reporting since at least Christmas 2007.

The following is an advice from another Sansa user, so I haven't been able to verify it myself:
"I have to have WinAmp open and a song playing then connect my player and then it will work fine. If I just connect my player then start WinAmp it crashes"

If all of the above fails, reformat your player and start over from scratch. Let me know how everything works out - this is an issue that not even the Sansa website seems to have an answer for.

Sansa e 250 wont work with windows 2000!

Hello. I just bought my e250 last week and I am running Win2k. I was aware of its system requirement for Win XP, but I have been able to use the player successfully. I you set the player USB mode to MSC under Settings and make sure your window explorer is set to view hidden files and folders, you will have access to drop and drag music like normal files. I found other suggested at this Sandisk forum as well:

Bought refurb

The drivers necessary are part of Windows Media player 10, or higher. As long as you have Windows XP / SP2, or Vista and Windows Media Player, your device will work with your computer.
