Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Duplicate Songs When I drag and drop files onto my Sandisk e250, the files of the songs only show up once but when I disconnect my sandisk and find the songs on the actual player they are duplicated (2x). One of the duplicates works just fine but the other is skipped when I try to play it. As I said before, the duplicate that does NOT work, is not to be found on the computer, but it IS on the Sandisk. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks!

Re: Duplicate Songs

I had this problem and I just backed up all the music, deleted it all from the mp3 player, and put it back on, and the duplicates were gone. There may be a more efficient solution, but hey it works (for me it did at least)

Cannot delete the songs on mp3

I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'

1)Plug in
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else

ive had this same problemo. you cant use the media converter to drag and drop songs. you have to download your songs or rip them onto windows media player. you plug in the sansa and then when its recognized there will be an area on the right hand side where you drag the songs and they appear on sansa.

Mp3 format??? HELP, PLEASE!

I don't know about converting the MP3s to WMAs, but I had the same problem with "corrupt files."
What fixed that for me was instead of dragging and dropping files onto the Sansa, I synchronized them using Windows Media player, but only do 10-20 songs at a time, because if you try to do too many, they probably won't show up. I know it's tedious and annoying, but that's what did it for mine :) I hope this helps.

Mp3 format??? HELP, PLEASE!

No You Don't Have To Converter The Tracks. It Depends On How You Put The Tracks On Your Sansa, Do You Drag And Drop Or Do You Sync With Copy To Device In Windows Media Player 9, Or Sync In Windows Media Player

Cant get music from bearshare to sansa e250.

This is because all of bearshare songs are licensed, so if you are planning on listening to the music on a mp3 player you have to deal with that problem. What tends to fix the problem slightly is using windows media player and ripping the songs from there. Although this only works if the song if offered to be played for a limited time. All locked bearshare songs will not be able to be transfered.

I can't put songs on my Sansa Sandisk e250....

Hey to get music onto the Sansa e250R you have to plug the Sansa into the computer. Next go to mycomputer. Then onen ethier sansa or Removable Disk(F:). Then take the songs you want and drag them on to the white space under photos and vidos and all that other files. DO NOT PUT IT IN A FILE.
