When i had this problem, i went to where it said Sansa e250 with the picture right clicked and it said fromat, this let me put my songs on the device but when it formats it everything on the device is deleted and you have to put it all back on, so if you're a patient person this the road to go on.

open WMP (windows Media player)... import what songs/albums into WMP. connect your mp3 to you computer. WMP should recognize it if it is a sansa.

WMP and Rhapsody crash when I sync w/ Sansa Fuze MP3 player

my sister has the same mp3 player unfourtunatly see put it in her back pocket sat on it then the screen broke it still worked for a couple of months and then it died the circuit board exploded. Now if your talking about downloading songs i can help all you have to do is get a program called free youtube to mp3 converter, what you do is copy the url and paste it into the place where it says paste url then hit download it will usally come up in a different place if you set it to download to your desktop then you wont have that problem.

I have a Creative Zen V 1gb, when I put songs on it with Windows Media Player, and unplug it afterwards, and when i want to start listening the songs on my MP3, it doesnt show any tracks! while WMP says...

Try updating your firmware, because "default" firmwares have problems sometimes with WMP Sync features that also adds a DRM code to each transfered track.

If not, make sure you use standard .mp3 extensions for your songs, because on basic settings WMP converts your audio files to .wma when you transfer it to an mp3 player

Hey Sheikhea!

You won't need to download or install any programs if you have Windows Media Player on your computer. You can use other programs but WMP is probably the easiest!

  1. Plug in your MP3 player using the USB cord (should be in box)
  2. Open WMP
  3. (If your songs are already in Library skip this step). Click "File" (top left hand corner) then "Add to Library..." Click "OK" WMP will now find all music on your computer and add it to Library.
  4. If the internet is connected WMP will attempt to find song info such as title, artist, album etc. Otherwise right click on song and click "Edit"
  5. Click on "Sync" tab (top of player). A sidebar should appear with "Creative zen.. etc" written on the top.
  6. Drag songs into sidebar.
  7. Click "Start Sync"
  8. The songs will now download onto your MP3 player.
To organise your files into folders etc. go to "My Computer" then "Creative Zen etc" then "Music" and create folders (right click "create folder") copy, paste, and drag your songs in folders as you like.

You can now unplug you MP3 player and turn it on!

Please reply so I can know if this information was helpful or not and can help you further.

Happy MP3ing!

Sansa mp3 e260

Just close it if you dont want WMP. IF what you mean is i dont know how to download songs then go to The SYNC tab on WMP but first make sure you are using WMP11 or Higher. After clicking the SYnc tab then Drag the song files to the empty spot below the playyers picture and clik The Load Songs button or Synchronize button. Hope this helpsl

Putting music in different folders

Within WMP 10 create a few playlists and drag/drop music files to the appropriate playlist (drag whole albums or individual songs). When you have constructed and filled your playlist(s) connect your player, open the sync tab, and drag the playlist(s) to the sync box. Click sync and smile. ;)

I have the same player. The player uses the basic drag and drop transfer. after you've converted the video, go to the file the video is in, and drag it on to your mp3 player. it should work.
