Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Song or file order is not correct

Hi, everything about my m230 works fine except that when I put a bunch of music files on it (using the USB cable and my PC) and they are supposed to be in a specific order, the order of playback -when paying all tracks, for ex. - is not the same specific order.

 

I even took the trouble to rename all the files as 01......, 02...... etc up to 16....., but the result was the same.  Number 01 keeps playing after Number 03.  ie I cannot change the track order to be 01 then 2 then 03 then 04.  Quite frustrating, although the sky has not yet fallen in....

 

When I hook the player up to the PC and open the folder with the files in it, they are all listed in the correct order, but after disconnecting, they aren't.  I wish I could figure out the system.  There must be some trick to it, right?

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

PS I did search for " song order" 'incorrect song list" etc but could n't find anything matching my problem.

    Just recently I have experienced the same problem. I have tried many times to try to fix this by syncing the files, and have reformated the MP3 Player and 'rebuilding' my library, only to have more files in the wrong order. Anything else that anyone can think of for this anoying problem?

Thanks for your input Kehalim.  yes, it is not playing by shuffle. Oddly, after putting up my problem, and after "syncing" all the tracks with WM player 10, disconnecting the player from the computer and  "rebuilding" the library, everything was fixed up with that particular set of tracks.  But now it has done the same thing with another set.   Grrr!
I will try to find out what file_ID3 is.... The term does not appear anywhere in the Mp3 player.
Wish these stupid little machines would behave better.  Do people have the same kind of problems with the more expensive IPods?

Funny problem. I guessed you already checked the options to see it is not playing shuffle or by artist. It might get them sorted by the File_ID3 - try editing this with winamp or windows media player and see if it helps.

How can i get rid of the songs i dont want from my sandisk m230


Hi!
You can plug your player into the USB port on your computer. Once it is detected, you can browse it as a normal Mass Storage device. You should be able to see all music files from there and delete or add up more songs to the player.
Good luck!

Sansa m230 not syncing music files or downloading them. Process leaves the Sansa m230 with 0 files and i am finding it impossible to load new file(s) ?


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. Then add music this way and see if it is works: 1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3. Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player?s memory are displayed. 4. Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer?s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5. Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

Just got my computer back from shop and i can`t put songs on M230


Check to make sure you stll have your driver for the player on your computer. If that does not work try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. After doing this if you still cant add music on your player try loading it this way: 1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3. Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player?s memory are displayed. 4. Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer?s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5. Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

MP3 Player wont let me listen to music it says it has on it


If you already formatted the player itself, the songs itself may be in the wrong format. This player doesn't read iTunes files, for instance - it will look like they have transferrred, but you will not be able to play them.

Won't delete songs


You should be able to modify and delete playlists/songs by connecting the player to your computer and accessing the files by going into my computer and selecting the player drive.

Hi big dee. Deleting songs from your M230 can be done by either browsing the player through your Windows Explorer and then selectively deleting the music file, or by formatting the player which would delete all of your music files. It's also important to know that your player has 2 modes -- MTP and MSC -- because music files saved in one mode would not be seen in the other mode, and vice versa. To switch the modes on your player, use the menu and navigate as follows: Menu > Settings > USB You would get a choice of "Autodetect" (this is for MTP) and MSC. Here's how to delete the files: Step 1: Plug in your player to your computer. Open explorer and check if your player is detected. Your player's LCD would display "USB Connected" and the mode would be indicated below that. If your player's mode is MTP: A. Look for the Sansa M230 icon on Explorer (it will be recognized as a Portable Audio Device). Double left click on it to browse the player. B. The player will have 2 sub-folders: "Data" and "Media". Double left-click on the "Media" folder and either find your music files or open the "Music" folder to find your music files If your player's mode is MSC: A. Look for the Sansa M230 icon and drive letter on Explorer (it will be recognized as a "Removable Drive". Double left click on it to browse the player. B. The player will have several sub-folders such as "Audible", "Config", "Record". You may already be able to see your music files or the player may have a "Music" sub-folder. Open that to check for your files Step 2 Once you've located your files, you may now be able to delete them. Step 3 Once you've unplugged your player, the M230's LCD will display the message "Rebuilding Library". Let that process complete, then you may turn on your player to confirm that the files have been deleted. To format your player, just right-click on the M230 icon in Explorer, then select "Format". When the Format window appears, make sure to select "FAT" as the File System type, and also make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox at the bottom of the Window remains un-checked. I hope this info helps. Enjoy your M230. :)

I dont usually mess around with real player when you dl or put your music on your computer put a shared folder in there and put all your music in there and then when you connect your mp3 player go to your shared folder and right click on the song when it comes up go to send to and it will give you a list it will say what ever you mp3 player is named and if you click that it will put your music on your mp3 player and if you couyld upgrade to at least a widows xp ~Grim

Sansa m230 cannot see previously installed music files now that WMP11 is installed


I had the same problem on my m230. The final solution that worked for me was to disconnect then go into settings;usb and set it to MSC. Once I re-connected I could see everything.
