Dates on music uploads from Windows Media player to device are skewed.
Ive got the sansa e280. I cannot get my music files to recognize the correct date. Most files are loading onto the device as year 2097 and 2098. I have tried to drag and drop the individual dates into the sync file, and it seemed to have worked until the device synced again. Yikes!
I also noticed the device does not show all the playlists that are illustrated under the device heading on Media Player. Any suggestions?
Another thing... I set up an "auto playlist" in MP, and it does not have any tunes associated with it, nor did it show up on the device. My criteria is after 1990 and before 2000.

Re: dates on music uploads from Windows Media player to...
Select all music while on you windows and right click on them , then go to "Summary" tab. Check if your music's dates are right.
If not Ok. then check the date settings with your Sansa e280.
If all dates are set .. then you should have the your music working fine.
Not working ? I recommend a firmware update.

Make sure your Rhapsody subscription is paid and up to date - if it ever lapses you will lose the songs. also, check out the License tab under properties for the songs that failed - the license may have a fixed-term/expiration date and can no longer be synced without paying $$. Rhapsody sucks like that.
You will have to edit the track number in Windows Media Player by right clicking the chapter, and going to Advanced Tag Editor. Then, erase the file off the Sansa player. Then reload the mp3 with the correct order/edited tags back onto the player. Sorry - as far as I know you cannot make these edits while the songs are still loaded onto the player.
It is probably because you have folders inside of folders inside of folder... i just had the same problem and copied all the songs in a folder into the main folder IE dont do this sansa>music>artist>album>music file do it like this sansa>music>artist>file
the software it only to tranfer and converted media into the portable device. to tranfer just click on add media then select the video that will be tranfer automatic. to load music onto the mp3 there are two ways using mediaplayer 10 or media player 11 will just work fine. another way it by selecting start then select my computer then u will see the portable device conected click on the device u will see files just ass photo,videos, music drop a drag the files onto music. hope this solve ur problem enjoy.
You dragged & dropped files in recovery mode?
Recovery mode is only for re-installing the firmware or formatting the device if it is unresponsive.
If you are wanting to drag and drop files onto the device, the music needs to be put into the Music folder on the device.
If you do not see the Music folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your PC.
Best of Luck.
p.s. - you can add to this question this doesnt work.
