Mono output? Hi there, i have a query regarding the player. Any music i transfer over seems to be playing in a mono mode). Is it related to teansferal of the music or is there likely to be a problem with the headphone socket? Can you tell me if i can change some setting somewhere on the player or software. Cheers, Phil O

Re: Mono output?

Probably the socket connection to the board. These sockets on small players aren't designed to take much sideways force. Maybe possible to solder it back if the track has not been ripped off the board.

My ipod plays songs and i can hear the music but when i switch to radio there is no sound speakers do not work on radio..what is wrong????

Hi Fay
You need to clarify what you are saying....
Your iPod plays songs and you can hear music?
Where is sound coming from... Earphones?
How do you switch iPod to Radio....
Is there a cord connecting both together?
I would then suspect cord or connector type not matching up with radio input connector.
Connectors can be Sterio or Mono
Look at spacing on connector....
Earphone Adapter may help here

Can't locate the music on the player in windows explorer. Every folder seems to be empty. The player itself recognize and plays about 230 titles...but where are these files located on the player and why...

The location of all the music on your Sansa is Clip+/Internal Memory/Music.

If the folder is empty, you should now think on which mode you you transfer the songs MTP or MSC. If you transfer songs on MTP, you can only see them on that mode and vice versa.

Try to check the current settings on your Sansa by going to MENU/SETTINGS/SYSTEM SETTINGS/USB MODE

Try changing the USB modes and check the folder again.

If songs are not showing on both modes, possible that the files are hidden or corrupted.

My computer wont recognize my USB


Try the following steps:

Resetting the device:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.

NOTE: Resetting will turn the player off while it is frozen.

If that doesn't work, then you may download and install the Sansa Firmware Updater and update to the latest firmware.

Mono Sound Playing through Headphones

Simplest solution, from experience: make sure your headphone jack is pushed all the way into Zen 3.5 output jack. Sometimes it will feel like it's clicked in but you need a little extra push to get it all the way in.
Another thing to look at: I pretty sure the is a preference setting that controls right/left balance (my son has my Zen right now). If you can find  this control, it could be set all the way to one or the other side.
Give it a try, or see if resetting zen helps.
Good Luck.

Oregon MP305 (i think) player.

hi, where do you get the music files?

It may be that the music has some DRM data inside such as the music sold on itunes. Get some music without any digital locks and try to play it.

Also try a ScanDisk if you had any failures in transferring files from pc to your mp3 player. Can you transfer files from pc to mp3 player withou problems?

I have a Oregon MP305 too. Mine plays music but i formatted it and now i have this problem: all that i transfer from pc is not visible inside the player browser when i disconnect it from pc. And all the files that i record with the mp305 and can listen to them on the player I can't find them when i explore the file system from the pc.

Can you make a copy of your player's file system ( the hidden directories and files ) and mail them to me?

this is my mail : csnww [at]

If you have any other questions mail me.

Music files

Hi. I hope this info would help: Your Sansa E260 has 2 modes: MTP (Music Transfer Protocol) and MSC (Mass Storage Class). Your Operating System recognizes each mode differently, and music files saved in one mode would not be seen when you switch to the other mode, and vice versa. Try switching to each of these modes, then plug it to your computer and browse the player. To switch modes, use the following menu navigation: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode This would give the choice of MTP and MSC.
