I do not have a cord to download music or to charge up my mp3 player. I dont know what to buy for it. I took mine to Office depot and the guy looked at it like it was from outer space. He said he didnt know what kind of cord to buy for it. Where can I get one and how do you download music or videos on it.

You can buy a USB cord at Walmart or any other retail store like it. Except for the iPod all other mp3 players have a universal plug on them to be able to charge it or download music. If you buy one of these USB cords, you can then plug it into your computer to charge it and put music onto it. There is also a Plug in that has a USB slot which you can purchase if you choose not to plug it into your computer, but prefer to charge it on a regular 110 wall outlet.
1st - You need to convert your CDs to MP3 music files. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. There are also Freeware CD RIP programs on the Internet that can create music title and album folders automatically. OR Download MP3 music files from the Internet, some sites will cost money to download these music files.
Do a Google search on free MP3 music files.
2nd - connect your MP3 player to your computer using the supplied USB cable. The computer will see this player as an external storage device, Just copy the MP3 music files from the computer's hard disk to the MP3 player.
NOTE - When the USB cable is connected to the computer, it will also charge the MP3 player's battery.
You can copy out all your songs on to your computers hard drive. Go to -> my computer right click the my computer icon and choose explore -> click on your hard drive = + C:\ and look on the folder tree for a folder to put every thing in or create a new folder, right click the +C:\ and add new folder. Go to your player (hook it up to your computer) on the tree, find the folder with all your music and right click -> copy then go to your new folder and right click -> paste= done.
Down load the firmware on Sansa's website. I have a Sansa 250R and it wouldn't work with the new replacement usb (Griffin) cord I bought at Best Buy. So I bought a Sansa Fuze and the cord that came with it worked on the E250R. Huh? Yeah, go figure...and oh, that replacement Griffin usb cord I bought worked fine with the new Fuze. I came real close to buying a new battery for the E250R but instead invested that money in the Fuze.
You won't need to download or install any programs if you have Windows Media Player on your computer. You can use other programs but WMP is probably the easiest!
Plug in your MP3 player using the USB cord (should be in box)
(If your songs are already in Library skip this step). Click "File" (top left hand corner) then "Add to Library..." Click "OK" WMP will now find all music on your computer and add it to Library.
If the internet is connected WMP will attempt to find song info such as title, artist, album etc. Otherwise right click on song and click "Edit"
Click on "Sync" tab (top of player). A sidebar should appear with "Creative zen.. etc" written on the top.
Drag songs into sidebar.
Click "Start Sync"
The songs will now download onto your MP3 player.
To organise your files into folders etc. go to "My Computer" then "Creative Zen etc" then "Music" and create folders (right click "create folder") copy, paste, and drag your songs in folders as you like.
You can now unplug you MP3 player and turn it on!
Please reply so I can know if this information was helpful or not and can help you further.
For the 10 second play problem the player has been set to intro mode, which only will play the first 10 seconds of each song. While it is playing, press the mode button ( bottom right ) once. This brings up the play sub-menu. It should show " repeat" as the first item. Press mode button again and it should show "intro". Now press either the top or middle buttons on the right side once, this shows all repeat choices again, using the same buttons scroll through them till "normal" is highlighted. Then press the bottom right button again. This shoudl put it back in normal play mode and return to the music screen.
