The songs are not in the right format. Convert or re-download them in mp3 format, and you will no longer have this problem.

If that fails for some reason, get the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website.

When you unplug the mp3 player, you remove the device from the computer. And the computer can't really read any data that isn't there now, can it? :3

Windows mEDIA PLAYER SAYs my sansae260 is full, but device won't sync. It says no song. I tried to reset, but still says no song


change the usb modes also....MSC will allow you to see the expansion card ( 2Gig E200 series 4gig Fuze) mtp won't.....MTP shows you your music folder in the media folder thats where you put your music plus expansion.....
Delete songs and Format (Helps with trying to delete BAD TRACKS and folders that will not delete full memory(Some ripped CD folders).. Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders themselves then format a couple of times hope this works

How do I download music on it from itunes


Go to your I-Tunes folder, and you can select which MP3 files to put on your Coby player. If all of your songs are in the M4A I-Tune format you can get a FREE program to change them to mp3 from here:

http://www.magicvideo.net/m4a-to-mp3/

I use music in the *.mp3 format at 128mbs

1. I put all movies (avi or wmv), music (MP3s), photos (160x128pixels - jpg) or audiobooks in it's own folder (on my computer) in a folder called "FOR COBY"

2. Open the COBY Manager
If you've had to re-format the player (which is a great way to get all previous stuff off it), you can get the Coby Manager from here:

CobyMedia Manager fix for MP822 (Windows XP/2000/Vista)

Don't let it throw you that it says it's for the MP822 - it also works great for the MP610

3. Plug your COBY player (THAT IS TURNED OFF) into the USB port - it will show up in the "DEVICE" tab

4. Click on the "Music" tab.

5. You can get the music into the folder one of three ways

a. Drag and drop from your COBY FOLDER/MUSIC FOLDER to the blank/empty space in the Coby Manager Music Page OR

b. Use the "SEARCH" icon (7th icon from the left - looks like a magnifying glass.)

c. Go to: My Documents/ My Music/ ITunes/ Music/
Then start looking in the folders for individual songs or select an entire folder - drag an drop onto a blank area of the Coby Manager Music Page. (If you put a music folder on the player, it will keep the songs in the order that they are in the folder.)

6. Right Click on a song, select "Synchronize" when it's done you will see a closed lock in the Status column

7. From COBY Manager,
a. CLICK "DEVICE" tab
b. Click on Music folder - there it is....

8. Go back to the MUSIC Tab. To get ALL the new songs in this tab to synch with the player:
a. Click on EDIT
b. Click on SELECT ALL
c. You will want to unselect the first song you synched (so it won't be highlighted in orange)
d. Right click on any orange highlighted song and select "Synchronize"
e. This will take awhile especially if you add 1300 songs at a time!
f. When it is done, all the music that has been added to you player will have a closed lock icon under the STATUS column.
g. Go to the DEVICE tab page and they will all be listed under the music folder.

Use the DEVICE Tab Page to EJECT the Coby player.

1. It will have a pop-up screen to ask "Do you want to eject?" Click YES.
2. The second pop-up screen will tell you "The device can now be safely removed from the system.

The Coby will now show "Please Wait..." in the screen.

It will take the Coby about 10 minutes on the Please Wait and then to UPDATE the Library - Be PATIENT
ENJOY!

Files not deleted from m250


Try this solution:

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Empty Song Folder - I followed the instructions from the quick start guide to to load music onto my sansa clip 1gb mp3 player and it shows that it copied it to my player but once I disconnect the usb from...


The songs are in the wrong format. They probably have a restrictive DRM license that limits playback on mp3 players (although the songs may play fine on your computer). iTunes format will not work at all. The best way to avoid a problem like this is to only use songs that are in mp3 format.

Adding Music To My Sansa e250


I never use Windows Media to add music to my sansa... If you want all music to show up click on my computer and then click on the icon for your sansa. there may be a folder that says music but if not it is a hidden folder. if this is so you must go to tools, then folder options, and then the tab that says view. under this will be an option that says hidden files and folders and click show hiden fles and folders and OK. this should allow you to see the music folder. from here on you can just copy and paste all files.

Songs are not being show (not getting detected) in the music list


k i had the same problem twice,

the first time i couldnt fix it because i ended up getting a device read error when i tried to acces it in my computer, but i think whatever caused that was different than the second time.

this time my device retained all the songs origionally on it but wouldnt reckognize any new songs. In addition to that, when i deleted all the songs off the player and only put a couple back on the player didnt register those either. so it would seem to me that it is a problem with the device's database refreshing algorithim...although thats just a guess.

neways...to fix it i copied all the data & folders off the sansa (including the .txt and .sdk files) and stored them on my desktop. After that I tried the e200 firmware upgrader available at sandisk.com

After messing around for 2 hours trying to figure out what was going on i deleted all my music, videos, recordings and pictures off the device and proceeded to format it in msc mode.

after the format was complete, i re-copied the data i had backedup on my desktop and pasted it back onto the sansa.

it seems to have worked...but then again i still don't know what caused the problem so it may not work for you. (i think it may have been something to do with one of my music files since both instances happened after i uploaded the same 5 songs onto the player)

also, i had numerous virtual folders & files that had conflicting sizes and would not open when i clicked on them (windows says they had +4GB sizes but properties says 0B also when clicked i get a file not found error).

hope this helps.

Computer won't open DJ Ditty


Windows Media Player 11 not compatible with this player.

The device doesn't know if it is a MTP or MSC device - in one of these modes, it will not allow access to the music folder. unfortunately, there is no way to switch between these two modes in the menu settings. Go to Control Panel - Device Manager - find MTP Deivce and update driver.

How do i put music on my mp3 player


if you already have songs in your computer connect your mp3 player it will say open folder answer yes, then click on the corner to lower or move your window drag your song from your computer folder to that window usually e or f. to drag the song you need to click and hold down your left mouse button on your song and move it to your e folder then release button. another way is by click right button on song then choose copy from the list then go to your mp3 folder e and right click then paste.
