Kevy - either the license on your songs has expired, or you need to format your player. You can format your player directly from the Settings menu of the Sansa, but be forewarned that it results in all of the songs on your player being erased - make sure you have backups somewhere.

benjamin - the songs you tried to load are in the wrong format. Go with songs that are in mp3 format only - WMA's have too many stipulations because most of them are DRM-protected, which limits your ability to play them on mp3 players.

It cannot read music even if it is already loaded into the mp3, when click on music, it says empty


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
All music need to be converted to mp3 file format and then copied to the MP3 player.
For details on converting music files, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Cant load music on centon player. Says disk


If your "Hold" button is on, turn it off. The hold button write-protects the USB drive and you cannot add or delete files.

Sansa View freezes when music is accessed (I've tried everything)


there mite be a corupted music file that is stopping your system from running properly like a coppy protected file or a virus encrypted file. check all your music that you load to be sure its not copy protected. jsut hover over the music file and wait for the info page to pop up on it it should say if its protected or not if it dosnt say anything then its not protected. as for finding the virus encrypted files thats a little harder just load one song at a time and see if it plays on your mp3

Empty folder


There may be possible reasons why your Sansa E250 would display an message on the LCD even when you've downloaded files to it: (1) The music file type is not supported by the player. Sansa players support only MP3 and WMA files. To determine what file type your have, right click on the file type and it should display the "properties" dialog box. Check if it is MP3 or WMA. For example, iTunes music files will not work with the player, nor will WAV or MIDI files. (2) Your music files are supported but the bit rate is not within the range that the player supports. Sansa players support MP3 files up to 128 KBPS and WMA files up to 64 KBPS. You may need to use a 3rd party music file editor to convert the files to a supported bit rate (3) You may have saved your music files in a folder and copied the folder to the player. Your Sansa E250 will not recognize folders. Either save them in the root directory or inside the "Music" folder -- your player's default folder for music files. Hope this info helps :)
