Leigh, what you need to do is to turn both your mac and your mp3 off. Then do the following in exactly this order: Plug in your mp3 to the mac. Then turn on the Mac. Then call your best friend, Hat boy. Then switch on the mp3. The little icon should pop up. If this doesn't happen, switch the mac off and on again. Once you have the icon up, click on this and this should solve most of your problems.

How can I put music on Sansa MP3 player from Macbook Pro?


Not to sure about a mac but I think mac's use a mp4 format when it rips a cd, and the Sansa will use a mp3 file. You can download a free program to convert these files but again, I know where for a PC but not a mac. Look for free mp4 to mp3 converter program for Mac..

I have a MAC and it will recognise the sandisk m240 mp3 player. When you look under the finder tab it is there. But when I try to download songs from i tunes it won't work. Any ideas?

Tranferring songs from iTunes to the m240 needs to be done in mp3 format. iTunes music in aac format should be converted to mp3.

I can't download music to my San Disk 1GB MP3 player that I got for Christmas. I did not get a manual with it.


To put music on your Sansa e250 you will do this:
Download Windows Media Player 9 or 10 to your computer. I would use Media Player 10 as it is the newer player. After you download Media Player 9 or 10 open it up on your computer, and then hook up your mp3 player, it should be recognized by Media Player and then you can transfer the songs to it. You need to put the music cd in your computer cd player and download the songs to Media Player using Windows Media Player 9 or 10. I have also included a website where you can download the user manual, it will say e200, but the instructions are also for the e250. Good Luck, I hope this helps. Please rate me, Thank You.

I have a SanDisk Sansa m200 mp3 and a macbook pro


Even on a Macbook pro, you should be able to access your "my computer" option, where it shows you the local disk drives and everything. your mp3 player icon should appear there. then after you click on the icon it should bring up a page containing folders "on" your mp3 player. there doesnt have to be any music or videos or anything like that to have the folders already on there. now i dont have a mac but what i suggested you to do should work.

You do not need anything from the CD, it only has Windows Media Player 10.

All you nee is a PC with XP / SP 2 and Windows Media Player 10 or higher. No drivers are necessary.



Best of Luck.
