Sansa c250 mp3 file management

I copied music files from my laptop to my mp3 player, but the file names got changed somehow and now I can't find the speeches (music files) I am looking for without listening to each one first. How can I manage the files on this mp3 player/
Thanks,
Krisite

The laptop and the computer may have had two different file systems (NTFS vs. FAT) - plugging the mp3 player into the other computer caused a mild reformatting. I would start simple - go into the Setting Menu of your Sansa and change the USB mode away from where it is now - if it is in MTP Mode, change it to MSC and vice versa (or Auto is even better). See if the missing files now show up. There is a full user manual for your product available at Sandisk's website if you want to get a visual on what I am talking about.

Hello, I purchaced this product not knowing if it is able to download music using windows vista. Can you please tell me if I need to get a refund or exchange, I only have windows vista. Thank you.


You are most likely copying the wrong music file format to your MP3 player.
MP3 players can only play music files that are in mp3 file format.
You can copy these music files to your MP3 player after converting then to mp3 format.
Please click on this link for instruction on converting music files :-

Video or photo files? If so, you need to use the Sansa Media Converter to convert the file to a format the Sansa can handle.

The media device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected


Make sure you're not using the media with another program while you attempt to copy/sync it to your device.

Pretty late response, but meh.

My Sandisk Sansa C250 playing MP3 files in random order


The order is not random it just appears that way..
The order they are copied seems to be the order they are played.
It looks at the ID tags no the file names.
The way I load my songs on are using Media Monkey or Windows Media Player 11.. I create a playlist then Sync it to the Sansa.

Open "My computer", then "Sansa c250 (E:)", find properties to show hidden files and a "Music" file (which is hidden) will appear. You can erase music directly from there.

Help!


We have two laptops and one desktop in my house and two 2GB Sansa c250s. My laptop recognizes my sansa c250 differently than our family's desktop (i.e. on the desktop i can't view certain folders/ music files that i transferred from my laptop to my player). The second laptop doesn't recognize mine at all, but it DOES recognize my sister's sansa c250.
my suggestion? try a different computer! and then KEEP using that computer for adding/ deleting files.
