Re: cant transfer anything to my player (e250)

I'm having a similar problem. every time i sync new music my computer tells me its on, but the tracks aren't on the player. it also refreshes every time i turn it on, which takes forever amd is getting really annoying. could this have something to do with my new microSD card?

My computer wont recognize my USB


Try the following steps:

Resetting the device:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.

NOTE: Resetting will turn the player off while it is frozen.

If that doesn't work, then you may download and install the Sansa Firmware Updater and update to the latest firmware.

Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really,  the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device. 
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.

How we put photo into sansa sandisk?

Hey Bossu-78,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able load pictures onto your Sansa player by following the steps below:

1) Connect your MP3 player to your computer.

2) Select "Convert using Sansa Media Converter" when the player first establishes a connection.

3) Click on the "Add media" button to select the photos you want to add to your player.

4) The files being transferred should be added to "My Album." You can then click on the album name box and choose the name that you want for that collection of files.

5) Click on the "Convert" button to start the transfer process.

If you're still not sure how to proceed, you may want to check out the manufacturer's website for more information:

Hope this helps you out.

Sansa e250

make sure the mode of the player is in MTP or if you have a version 2 player the default mode is MTP. If you are receiving an error about "Not Enough Space for Music DB please free 6mb" when turning on the player. Format the player using windows explorer and the mode should be in MSC.

Sansa 250 - Having problems downloading music?

You could try opening the folder(s) with your saved music and highlight all the ones you want to transfer to your mp3 player and then right click on one of the highlighted files, left click on Copy, then go to My Computer > Sansa e250 mp3 player should be listed in there, double click on it, then right click in a open white area and left click Paste. It should copy the music right to your player. You could also try using Rhapsody and import your music into it. I use Rhapsody for transferring music to my e250 Sansa mp3 player.
