Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Won't shuffle I had my e250 on shuffle, but now it won't do it at all! It has the shuffle icon on the top of the screen, but when I go under the "music options", it won't allow me to turn it on or off. I've only had it for a couple months. Please help!

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
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 Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

6th gen. nano has shuffle issues. plays same song over and over


The iPod's shuffle feature lets you randomize playback of albums, songs or even your entire music library. You may also find this feature useful if you want to listen to forgotten tracks in your library or discover songs you haven't listened to yet. Disabling the shuffle feature will return playback of a song list to its standard consecutive order. You can enable and disable the shuffle feature at any time.

Navigate to the main menu. Select "Settings." Scroll to the "Shuffle" option. Select "Songs" or "Albums." If you select "Songs," the iPod Classic will shuffle the songs on whatever song list you listen to. If you select "Albums," the iPod Classic will play all songs of an album you select in order and then randomly select another album. Navigate to the playlist or album to which you want to listen. Play a song to initiate the shuffle. b> iPod Nano and iPod Touch Tap the "Songs" icon on your nano home screen. If you are using an iPod Touch, open the "iPod" application. Navigate to the song list, playlist or album you want to play. Tap the "Shuffle" icon at the top of the list to activate the feature.

I have a coby mp828 and I am trying to shuffle songs. I have the random function highlighted and it still won't shuffle..Any ideas


Start playing a track. Click anywhere on screen. Options should show at top of screen. Click on the tool symbol (should look like a bolt.) Click on repeat mode. Click random. This should solve your problem.

I have a first gen ipod shuffle and I want to change the EQ


You posted this question under the iPod shuffle, so understand that these instructions are only good for the iPod shuffle:

Here is a link to your manual:
http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/iPodshuffleUserGuide.pdf

You will notice on. p18, that iTunes has an icon bar associated with the iPod shuffle - the second icon looks like a level indicator - press this button and change the bass, treble, etc.

Good luck!

Skips Through Songs without Playing them


Do you have it set on SHUFFLE? That may be the problem - SHUFFLE will play songs randomly instead of in order.
You can tell if it is in SHUFFLE mode when you look at the screen between the battery ICON and the PLAY ICON -
Press the top right button until there is nothing between those two icons.
