Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Copied tracks My Sandisk mp3 player copies tracks by itself (not all tracks, but a lot of the). When I plug in the device in my computer and watch the tracks, there are no double tracks.... so the copied tracks only appear on my Sandisk, not on my computer and consequently, I cannot delete them. I already had this problem once before and it was solved when I formatted the player and re-installed all songs and videos etc. But I do not want to do that again, it is an awful lot of work!

Re: Copied tracks

The device hes 2 modes.

If you transfer music in 1 mode, you cannot see it on the computer in the other mode.

Change the mode on the device Settings>Mode or USB Mode.

You should see the same tracks that are on your device. Delete the music from ! mode and your problem will be solved.

Best of Luck.

When I play a song on my mp3 player, the screen displays "unknown."

Mp3 players are programmed to read original & copied songs when you download music into your Mp3. if you copy an original CD (music) to your Mp3, the songs will be displayed along with all the infos of that song, i.e. artist, track #, year,etc. if you copy a CD which contains copied songs from other originals, it will display "UNKNOWN" because original CD's have their own trademarks that distinguishes them from copied CD's or any other CD for that matter...

I copied my music into the music folder, but when i disconect from the computer, the player says that the music isn't there.

Try importing your music into Windows Media Player.

Hook up the mp3 player, make sure all appropriate drivers are on the machine, open Windows Media Player. Windows Media should see it as a device and you will be able to sync songs by either selecting individual tracks and dragging them to the icon of the MP3 player (in the left pane) or syncing all music to the device.

To import custom music folders on a Windows 7 machine:
Open windows media player
right click on the "music" icon
select "manage music library"
Chose the "add" button on the right side
Find and select your folder.

All of the songs in that folder will be pulled into the music library and you can sync from there

Mp3 Files not shown on file list

Hello, i had this problem as well. I deleted the files and ran an MP3 convertor program. For some reason, not all MP3 files appear to be compatible with the Sansa. Try downloading Switch from which is freeware and is a very small and useful program. I tried this with invisible tracks and tracks that appear as "bad track" as well.

Hope this helps.

Do you have a subscription with Rhapsody or Napster?

If so, you need to log in for them to update your account, which will solve it.

If not, did you use your own music from CD's? Did you use Windows Media Player to copy the music to the computer? Did you change the default settings in Windows Media Player?

If so, the default settings for WMP are to "copy protect my music", which will give you this error. You will need to change the RIP Music settings in WMP. Tools>Options> un-check the copy protect my music option. You will then need to delete all the music you previously copied to the device and ti your PC an copy them again with theis new setting in place.

Finally, if you have the "Rhapsody" version, there is pre-loaded music on it that if not deleted, will cause this problem. You can format the device to remove the pre-loaded music, or manually delete it from the System folder.

Please add to the question if that didnt work.

Best of Luck.
