Sansa not saving songs?

Hi, I burned some songs to the computer from some of my cds to put on my player and after I get them on my player and disconnect it from the computer, I delete the songs off of the computer. The songs stay on the player until I hook it back up to the computer to add more and the previous ones disappear off of my player. Do you have to leave the songs on the computer or am I doing something wrong?

Re: Sansa not saving songs?

If you are using Windows Media Player, or Rhapsody to manage your music. You need to have a copy on your PC in order to keep it on the device. If you want to manually manage your music thru My Computer ( like a removable disc ), you dont have to have a copy on your PC. Best of Luck.

To put music on your Sansa e250 you will do this: Download Windows Media Player 9 or 10 to your computer. I would use Media Player 10 as it is the newer player. After you download Media Player 9 or 10 open it up on your computer, and then hook up your mp3 player, it should be recognized by Media Player and then you can transfer the songs to it. You need to put the music cd in your computer cd player and download the songs to Media Playeer using Windows Media Player 9 or 10. I have also included a website where you can download the user manual, it will say e200, but the instructions are also for the e250. Good Luck, I hope this helps. Please rate me, Thank You.

I have this player and it drives me crazy, too.

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 tools--then folder options--then view 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. good luck!

Downlaoding music from my saved files on my computer

Hi! First of all the songs must be in .mp3 format to work on an mp3 player. If you got them from Itunes they may be mp3's already, but if not download Free wma mp3 converter here and install it (Vista compatable). Good Luck!
