Re: wont upload music onto device!

Try to get to your '' Album'' Folder in your player and drag the album folder in it, make sure its in a folder. Basically you should go trough Computer/Sansa e250 Device/''PPI NAND(or whatever it is named)''/Albums and drag the folder with the album's name you want

How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano?
IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.

Downloading to an iPod Nano1Connect your iPod Nano to the computer using the USB cable. Launch iTunes if does not automatically launch. When you launch iTunes, it will display your iPod Nano on the left panel.
2Add music to your iTunes library. Click the "File" button on the top menu and click "Add to Library." Locate the song you want to upload to your player and click "Open" to load it to your program.
3Click the "+" button on the lower left panel to create a playlist. Type a name for the playlist and drag the uploaded file to it. To upload additional songs, repeat Step 2 and drag the uploaded additional songs to the created playlist.
4Drag the songs in the playlist up or down to select the order in which the songs will play.
5Sync your iPod Nano. Click the iPod icon on the left panel after importing songs and adding them to the created playlist. Click the "Music" tab and click "Sync music." Click "Select playlists, artists and genres" and select the playlist you created that contains the songs you want to upload.

My computer has windows 98 is there any way I can use my sansa e250 with this? If what do I do?

Yes that's what I'm using right now, you should load the software that came with the player if you have and simply use Windows Media Player to create a library of songs from which to choose, when your ready connect your device and clisk on the SYNC tab then this will allow you to pick songs or whole albums to the right sync column, when this has everything you want click the START SYNC tab and it all will load into your player.

My Phillips Go Gear 8GB MP3 player wont sync music

Windows Media Player 11 ruins this player. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11, and roll back to Windows Media Player 10. Then use version 10 to sync songs to your device.

Philips GoGear: delete music from library & are there any Unicode

Here's the deal:
Open the Philips Device Manager that came with the install cd, and do a Repair - this will erase everything so you can start over from scratch. This will also take care of your squares issue.

No dice on the playlist issue - sorry.

Next, you have to disable the auto sync feature in Windows Media Player to prevent it from auto-loading all of those songs/files that you don't want. by opening Windows Media Player, highlighting the Sync tab, clicking on the little black arrow to bring down the drop-down menu, clicking on "Set Up Sync" (make sure your mp3 player is connected to computer, or this option will not appear), and unchecking the box that says "automatically sync files to my device". This will give you manual sync instead.

I am having trouble putting music on my sansa e250

okay, first thing you have to do is make sure you have songs in windows media player.  if you do not,  you will have to insert audio cd's into the computer and rip them from the cd's onto the computer.  to do that you must put the cd into the computer, and when windows media player comes up go to the rip tab and fin the button that says start rip or copy.

once you have the songs in the computer, you will have to plug your player into the computer.  windows media player will find it and take you to your library. if you are using windows media player 10 or lower, you will have to select your songs by holding down control and clicking on the songs you want to sync.  once you do that you must right click on one of the while still holding down control button on the keybord.  the click on add to sync list.

if you are using windows media player 11 or higher, you must click on the sync tab at the top of the screen and look to the left.  there will be a list, and in the list it will say library.  in the library list it will say songs, clikc on that.  follow the steps above for selecting songs. once you have the songs selected you must drag them over to the list to where it says SANSa e260 or whatever you device is called. once you have all the songs dragged over, you must click sync to player from the window on the right of the screen.  after it is done the songs will be on the player.

if something is not clear leave a comment on your page and i will explain it for you

Dates on music uploads from Windows Media player to device are skewed.

Select all music while on you windows and right click on them , then go to "Summary" tab. Check if your music's dates are right. If not Ok. then check the date settings with your Sansa e280. If all dates are set .. then you should have the your music working fine. Not working ? I recommend a firmware update.
