The Sansa e280 can be operated in 2 ways of USB connection modes: MSC or MTP.
In MSC mode, viewing the player as a removable disk, the "copy
and paste" or "drag and drop" method will work.
In MSC mode always through the "safely remove hardware" icon, click to remove the player's disk before taking out the USB cable.
In MTP mode, operating the player in software like Windows Media Player: under Library or Sync,
first create a playlist
next sync the playlist.
In MTP mode, follow up the warning or text in the software that gives permission when to disconnect the player.

play list is a file that just save the property of songs of that particular software, make sure once you save the play list it can be recognize by your mp3 player, some player generate their own playlist, and makesure that the songs that was in your playlist is also in your mp3 player.
First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:
) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB". 2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".
Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.
However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.
To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:
- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode - Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list - Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings" - Check "Synchronize device automatically" - Set "View" to "All Playlists" - Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device - Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.
The Sansa m200 series can only create playlists in MTP mode. on the menu go to settings>USB. There are two options MSC and autodetect. Once in autodetect your sansa should say MTP when connected to your PC. In this mode you should be able to add playlists without any trouble.
Hope it helps
This is going to take some investigation on your part. First of all, make sure that the correct song works on your PC. That is, if you launch Don't Wanna Miss A Thing on your PC and Bout It plays, then it's the media file, not the Sansa player. Make sure you launch the specific media file from Windows, NOT from your media player software. You want to check the FILE first. (Reverse the files too - launch Bout It and see what plays)
If the files are right, then launch them from your media player software. If they're wrong when you play them from the media player software, check the properties of the song.
If everything is okay on the PC, then check the Sansa. If you are directly launching the music file on the Sansa (that is, not from a playlist) and it's wrong, then put the Sansa in MSC mode and check the file. Drag it to your PC and launch it. If it's wrong, replace it.
If your launching the file from a playlist, just redo the playlist with the correct file after you've finished your troubleshooting.
The MAC reformatted the player, and eliminated the formatting that contained the music songs - this player had a dual mode system where it could either function as an MSC device or an MTP - the manufacturer placed Recordings and Radio on one mode, and music files on the other. A PC can recognize both sides. Macintosh cannot. This player is not MAC-compatible.
