Unfortunately, this device does not support bookmarking. You are going to always have this problem. You may want edit the song into individual chapters. You can download a third party application to auto create them every few minutes or so. Best of Luck.

How do i play back a recording i've made? I have the Sansa m200 series MP3 Player

To play back a voice recording, you will need to do the following steps after turning on the player. Press Power/Menu briefly to get the software menu. Press the Repeat/A-B/Down button to highlight the line Play Music and press Select to enter the play back sub-menu. Press the Down button again to go to the line Recordings and press Select again. Use the Down button to highlight a particular voice recording and press Select to start playing the recording.

The manual for the Sansa M200 MP3 player is available as a PDF from the manufacturer here: . The details for playing back a Voice Recording are on page 23-24 (24-25 of the PDF). You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I hope this helps.

How can i fast forward on an audio book

there's no function for this on mp3 players.if you know you're going to want to do this frequently when you're reading the book it would be better to download it in chapters and then you could at least jump from one chapter to another without listening to the whole thing each time.You could record chapters or the whole thing onto Audacity ( A free sound recording program) and break it up into smaller sections.This is a lot of messing about and you'd probably be better off trying to find the book as an ebook and just search out the relevant bit that you'd missed and read it instead. I think it would be a great step forward if mp3 players were able to do this.The only equipment I know of that can do this(other than a media player on a pc) is on some digital radios where you can pause and do a rewind to the bit you want but this is usually only over a short period (5 mins for example on the Roberts digital radio.

Fast forwarding for listening to books

I use a Creative Zen V Plus, but have a similar problem.

First, an explanation: the issue is probably with the timecode in the audio track. This can happen when the audio file is created on a computer. The audiobook was likely "ripped" to a file from the original audiobook CD, and your player may not like the format the file is in. The best solution in this case is to recreate the audio files yourself. First remove all of the files from your Sansa for that particular book. Then use CD-burning software on your computer to create an audio CD (not a data CD!) from the files you got from the library. Finally, use the software that came with your Sansa to transfer the audio CD back to your Sansa. This way you know you are getting a correct format on your player.

If you have an additional issue (like me) where the tracks are too long and go back to the beginning every time you turn your player off, you may have to use an audio editor such as Audacity to chop the long tracks up into smaller tracks, but this is quite time consuming. It is best to acquire audiobooks in smaller tracks in the first place. This is the problem I have been faced with while using to listen to audiobooks.

Playback of audio files does not resume where I left off when powering back on

I have an e260. I use it for audiobooks a lot. I just press pause (centre top of the dial), and the track will resume from there next time (unless I go back to the main menu for radio of course.)

Sansa m200 mp3 player

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard
