Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer


How on earth can I fix this please? I go into the music options and the extra wonderful option of High Volume is there, neither is the Custom EQ option. Please help me, as I love to play my music extremely loud on the bus to college. It drowns out the sound of hyper-active chavs and the like. Any help would be much appreciated.

Sound Problem

Sounds like something's up with your EQ. From the main menu, go to Music>Music Options>Music EQ and try another setting or play around with Custom. Could also be volume. Go to main menu>Settings>Reset All (NOT FORMAT!!!) Recommend trying both in given order. Hope this helps.

Upgrading the firmware also has the same effect - Sansa never has and never will resolve this issue - sorry.

Error message: "Cannot play; the license is expired"

I went to and was able to find the solution. If your songs were downloaded from services similar to Napster then you will have to log back into the service to refresh the licenses on the songs. If you no longer are subscribing to the service then you will need to delete the songs from your player. If you need further information you can find it on the Sony website.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription

This is what I recieved when I asked a third party for help with this same problem. I worked. Good luck:

The error you are receiving may be
resolved by changing the USB settings within your device. Your device
uses two different transfer modes that are automatically selected by the
device; the primary mode is MTP. MTP mode is what allows the transfer of
the license along with the WMA (Windows Media Audio) title. Can you
please complete the following steps to change the USB setting?

(Please note: Do not connect the device to the computer until step 4.)

1. Power on the device and select 'Settings'.
2. Scroll to and select 'USB Mode' (or 'Mode').
3. Scroll to and select 'MTP' (or 'PlaysForSure Mode').
4. Connect the device to your computer.
5. Open 'My Computer’ > Sansa e280.
6. Delete any WMA (Windows Media Audio) files you see that are of books
you cannot play.
7. Open the OverDrive Media Console and attempt to transfer the audio
book again.

Does anyone think if the Equalizer presets of iPod sufficient?

Hrm..... This is a tough issue. I have experienced this as well. I can't really solve the problem, I can only share what I have done personally to deal with this. Hope this helps. I have settled on: 1. Leave the iPod's EQ on default and don't change it. 2. Change certain songs that must have EQ help individually. 3. Set the maximum volume setting on the iPod to the highest setting. 4. Assess where and how I listen to music on my iPod and plan to get headphones that work with my listening style. 5. Get better headphones. They don't have to be expensive to produce good sound quality. 6. If you connect it to a speaker dock or a stereo system use it's built in EQ/DSP.
