Re: player shuts off

This might be a really stupid suggestion so please don't rate me badly or anything. Check how loose the battery is. That could be the problem. If that dosn't work, maybe it's the battery itself. If that dosn't work, don't return it right away because it might be a very minor problem. Sorry if it dosn't work. Hope it works

My playlists from sansa m250 disappeared but when i connected ..

When transfering the songs from computer to player. First, sync device before transfering. Only do this the very first time. If you try to sync with songs already on the player, they will be erased.

To test the device. Open your comuters music file folder, keep folder open, than go to start menu, go to my computer and open the folder (D: or F: folder) It will have your player listed there.

Now with both folders open, take a song from the music folder, drag it to the sansa folder and drop it in there. It should be added to player.

Try going to menu, then settings, then USB and then select MSC instead of the auto select. Hope this helps.

Please wait rebuilding the library. Then the m250 shuts off.

Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:

  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second and then reinstall the battery without pushing any further buttons.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. This solution has worked for me.

I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players.

Sansa help

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware.

I dont know what the problem is

Hi I am not an expert by any means, but when I had issues with my M250, I went to the Sansa site and downloaded the latest firmware onto the M250 and my problems disappeared. Good luck
