Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Converting Playlists I have a sansa e250 media player, and i lost my manual. I was wondering how you can put full playlists on there, because i try to do it through rhapsody, but it only transfers them as individual songs, and does not recognize them as full playlists.

I have a Sansa e250 and I just bought a 8GB microSD card. Ideally, I would be able to add 10GB worth of music and playlists, however I can't get the Sansa player to read the music from the microSD...

The Sansa e250 works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While microSDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the e250.

microSD cards max out at 2GB in size, but you can put your music on several of them and swap them in and out. It's not as convenient as having them all on one card, but that's the best you can do with the e250.

Some later models such as the Fuze will accept microSDHC cards.

I have a Sansa e250 but i lost the cd with the software on it. I forgot how to put music onto it, do i have to convert it first? Please help!


All support for Sansa e200 players can be found here:
Music transfers can be done, connected with the provided USB cable in 2 modes:

MTP = Media Transfer Protocol, when using a software program or Windows Media Player (10 or higher). In WMP10 or 11 select Library or Sync to create playlists and synchronize the playlists with the player.

MSC = Mass Storage Class, when using Windows explorer, viewing the player as a removable disk. Perform "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" actions onto the external USB device (drive letter memory with 2GB capacity).

For pictures and video use software program Sansa Media Converter on the computer. After conversion in SMC transfer media onto the player.
Use next overview link for information about and how to get Sansa Media Converter:

What does sychronizing do?


Synchronizing on most mp3 players is used for transferring one or more playlists from a computer to the player, having a connection through USB.

Creating playlists, putting mp3 data in a list with a certain name,
mp3 could be put in a specific order.
The player preserves some space of memory to remember these playlists and the playing order.

Some players support subfolders, but not having the manual for the
MP200 I'm not sure if that will work.
MUSIC > music list 1
> music list 2

Sansa m250 playlists

First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.

To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Playlists on the MicroSD card?

You just reminded me. I took my SD card out and put it into my phone. I'll replace it in the Sansa and see what happens. So far, synching with WMP works, but still not Napster (where I do all my purchases). oh well.

I'll try putting my card back in. Maybe a DMR key was on it. Also, I may have changed the name of my player. Lookign into a couple options. Back later/another day.

Puting playlists on my sansa

You have to set the playlists to auto-sync with the device. That is the only way they work with WMP 10. Best of Luck.
