Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player
I've had my new Sandisk Sansa mp3 player for about 2weeks now, and whatever i seem to try i can not get it to work properly. I have put all my music files on there by synching it through windows media, and they all went on there fine, However!... Half of them don't play. When i try to play, it comes up with the message above (subject line). All my music is from CDs, i don't download, and it has all been ripped through windows media player so it is all in wma format. I don't understand therefore why some of the music will play (eveidently not much of it!) and most wont! It just doesnt make sense!! i would appreciate any help anyone could offer, i've treid everything i can think of, and trauled the web for a solution... so... :) Thanks! Kirsty x
Default settings for Windows Media Player are to "copy protect my music". Which would result in the Sync error, cause it thinks its subscription content. To change this setting go to; Windows Media Player>Tools>Options>Rip Music and uncheck the "copy protect my music" box. If thats it, you need to delete the ones on your device. Then re-rip the songs as un-protected to your PC. Then transfer them to your device. Best of Luck.

I would suggest formatting the unit and trying again, but this time do not sync it with media player. Plug it into your USB and got "My Computer", the player will show up as a removable disc usually drive f:, right click on the drive and hit format, quick format shoudl work. Once formated double click the removable disc drive, and then click and drag or copy and paste your music into this drive and see what happens. That player should support WMA files, but just to let you know, if you convert those files to MP3 it will take about half the space and therefot you can store more music at once.
