Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Music is lost

I had some music and videos on my mp3player but then one time after trying to add music to it i noticed that all of the music i had had been deleted. The weird thing is that I'm am still able to access my videos and recordings on my mp3player. I tried to put music back onto it but my music folder was gone. I made a new music folder and put music in that but the music didn't show up on my mp3player when i tried to listen to it. Also, I get a message every time I turn it on: "Not enough space for music DB. Please free 6mb" even though i deleted almost everything off of my mp3player so I am pretty sure that memory space is not a problem. The only things that I did to my mp3player to cause any problems was that i reseted it using the reset all button and i think i disconnected it from my computer improperly.

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.

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

I try to add music to my picture movie through windows movie maker but each time error:0x87160129 keeps popping up.movie will play but without music.Please help.


Program requirements before music, videos are displayed together on a computer
1. A music editing software separaly installed on the computer
a. the music files would be extracted from disk mediums by music editor software.
b. a versatile music editor software would provide format conversions
c. a music editor software that makes possible clip extractions to be integrated onto another program

2. A movie editing software separately installed on the computer.
a. a software that recognise verious file format in music and videos
b. a versatile video editor software would intergrate music from another software


Important notes
1. Music file formats are selected compartible to the video editor software on which to be integrated
2. Files have to be edited and stored at a separate computer folder like my documents, my briefcase, or personal file folder

Initial diagnostic checks
1. The music file is in an incompartible format, performing a file format convertion should resolve such an issue
a. software multimedia converters are acquirable to be installed separately
2. the music file is corrupted, selecting another would resolve the issue
3. performing the video creation precess altogether would fix any error. Discard the video created, and rebuild a new compilation of music and videos.
a. notice any file errors requiring fixing

How do you load music onto the mp3player


It's pretty simple once you know how. I'm assuming you have general knowledge of a computer, basically connect the mp3 to the computer either directly or using the USB cable. Go to My Computer and that should show you your MP3 player, but it may be recognized as a Removable disc (doesn't matter if it does). Then if you have music already stored on the computer simply copy and paste or drag and drop onto the MP3/Removable disc.

That's a rough solution for you.
