Cannot seem to synch songs to my Sansa e260 (4G) from a CD
I put in a CD in my CD Drive in order to put some songs onto my Sansa mp3 player (something I had no problem doing with another mp3 player). I can see all the album tracks in wmp but when I try to drag them to synch them to my Sansa, I can't do it. I downloaded the porting kit and firmware updates, but that didn't seem to help.

ok. when you use windows explore.......ie...My Computer. you should see your hard drive and cd rom and other periferials.... do you see your Sansa on the bottom? if so you can double click on it and you should see the different folders
I don't know if this will help delete what you don't want but plug the sandisk into your computer and open to view the contents. when you see the list of folders, at the top click on
make sure "show hidden files and folders" is checked. click ok.
then if you can see the folder you want to delete, highlight it and press the delete key on your keyboard. (if you want to save it, copy it to your hard drive instead).
to put on a cd this may be a roundabout way but is fairly simple.
put the cd in the computer, using windows media player rip it and save songs in a folder on the hard drive. save as mp3 (or wma should work, too.) you can read on the net how to do this. once the songs are in the folder, close media play. go to the folder and the hard drive and copy it to the sandisk . you can see on your computer if it is there. unplug from the computer and hopefully you can find it and play the songs.
You need to synch them to Rhapsody or whatever music service you pulled the songs from. also, make sure your music service subscription supports transfer to portable devices instead of simple transfer to a computer.
in order to help you illl need more information, like what programs are you using to download and convert them into your mp3 player? i use rhapsody, because when i used to use windows media player it would give me the same problems you seem to be having.
P.s. my e250 screen is broken v.t it was the only thing holding my entire colection of kick ass songs, most of which are irreplaceable due to undownloadableness. i could kill myself
Where did you download the songs? Napster?Rhapsody? Any online music stores? Try synchronizing them using their software. If you have ripped songs from a cd you may want to rip them again and before ripping them check this option on your windows media player software. Tools > Options then under RIP MUSIC remove the check mark that say's Copy Protect Music or choose the file format as MP3. Then format the device using the windows media player software(for version 10 = click on the sync tab then choose the pencil like icon on the far right, for version 11 = right click on the sync tab choose the player and choose format) use after doing that rerip the songs using the windows media player software.
