Sansa m250 mp3 problem with songs

Help!!! my sansa m250 mp3 2g is all messed up. i plugged it into the computer and noticed that i had 1.2g left so i downloaded one 6mb song into it. before i could turn it on to listen to that song, my i noticed that my battery was dead since it wouldnt turn on. i changed the battery. when i turned it on it said that there was not enough space left on the db, and to free 4mb. this makes no sense to me because my computer said i have 1.2g left. i dont even know how to delete songs.

Re: sansa m250 mp3 problem with songs

The device has 2 modes of operation, if you transferred music in both modes, it is not reflected in the other.

Easiest solution is to format the device to remove everything, then transfer your files back to the device, staying in 1 specific mode.

Best of Luck.

Files not deleted from m250

Try this solution:

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

My playlists from sansa m250 disappeared but when i connected ..

When transfering the songs from computer to player. First, sync device before transfering. Only do this the very first time. If you try to sync with songs already on the player, they will be erased.

To test the device. Open your comuters music file folder, keep folder open, than go to start menu, go to my computer and open the folder (D: or F: folder) It will have your player listed there.

Now with both folders open, take a song from the music folder, drag it to the sansa folder and drop it in there. It should be added to player.

Sansa m250 2GB file adding problems

Can't create directories directly on the m250. I've got about 1000 songs loaded (already broken into subdirectories) that take up 800 MB and the device claims that it's full. (Firmware is also updated to 4.1.08A)

Sounds like there may be some music corruption left on the player.

You should FORMAT the device thry My Computer>Device Name (m230)>Right click and select FORMAT.

This will delete all information and you can start over.

Best of Luck.

Not enough space to listen

If it''s any consolation, the same thing happened to me after I loaded about 1.6 GB (~250 MB left) of music on my Sansa m250. I tried to delete the required 8MB, but the directory structure got destroyed to the point where my computer wouldn''t recognize the device. I called their technical support and they''re having me send it back to them for a replacement! It''s not you, but the player! I don''t know if there''s anything that can be done from a consumer standpoint.
