Sansa e250: PC doesn't see MUSIC folder

This a funny and anoying one : i have this sansa E250 had it for years and didn't use it for 1/2 year. I had pretty stange songs on it (maybe containing viruses) and then i deleted all the songs like i did before deleting the MUSIC map, but this time the map dissapeared too. So i can't put music on with the drag n' drop method. Whereas i can with the synchronising method with Winamp and Microsoft programs. If i do it with the microsoft media player my sansa detects the filese but can't play it and writes "Bad Track", with winamp it wouldn't even detectthe songs. In both cases the syncroniser puts the files into the Sansa E250 folder but not in sub folders.

I need great help and i would give great thanks to my hero :D

    Wow thanks, every bit of hope is extremely useful now. For the formating i have one question: Is it done on the device itself? Because on mine in the setting menu I only have reset or something like, which resets the options to default. Final thing: for the CD i probably have misplaced it, but i will look after it. But in the case i wouldn't find I've already serched for the sansa media converter, but it's not the same featured on the CD and this kind of doesn't have that firmware update that the previus model had

    this is the reply to the comment from the same person who has replied to your problem.for formatting your device , you should connect your device to the computer. after it shows the icon of your device, right click on it and click on format . a dialog box appears and click start there.but do not click the check box for quick format in the dialog box.this is the usual way to format a device..formatting erases all the data in the device including viruses. resetting your device is also good to be done after format is complete. hope your problem is tackled. have a nice day.

Deleting songs from Sandisk


Hi. The minimum requirements of your Sansa E250 is Windows XP and above and Windows Media Player 10 and above. If you're using Windows Media Player 10 or above, your Sansa E250 and its contents should appear on the right pane when you click on the "Sync" tab. You can right click on a song and select "Remove". The songs will be erased permanently from the player. If your songs do not appear on Windows Media Player 10 or above, it is possible that your songs may have been saved on another mode. Your Sansa E250 comes in 2 modes: MTP and MSC. Songs saved on one mode will not be seen by the other mode, and vice versa. There are 2 ways to delete songs from your Sansa E250: By browsing the folders containing the songs, or by formatting the player. You can switch modes by navigating your E250's menu using the following: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode Next, plug your player in your PC and open Windows Explorer. You should first set your Explorer to "Show hidden Files and Folders" by going to the "Tools" menu (located on menu lists on Windows Explorer window), then choosing "Folder Options", then enabling the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button Deleting Music files under MTP Mode: 1. Your player should appear as a Sansa E250 icon in Explorer as a "Portable Audio Device". Double left-click this icon to browse the player. 2. You'll find a "PPI NAND" sub-folder. Again, double left-click on this sub-folder. 3. You'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it. 4. Your music should appear as individual files or folders. Delete this to remove the file(s) from the player Deleting Music files under MTP Mode: 1. Your player should appear as a Drive letter and entitled either as a "Removable Drive" or as "Sansa E250" 2. Double left-click on this drive letter to browse the player 3. You may find your music files immediately on this folder, or you'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it and view your music files. 4. Delete the music files you want, and they should be removed from the player Deleting files through Format: 1. Formatting the player erases all files in the player, and oftentimes this is the best option to ensure that all files are removed and any corruption eliminated. Also, it is best to format the player when in MSC mode. 2. When the appears as a drive letter (under MSC mode), right-click on that drive letter and select "Format". On the "Format" pop-up window, click "Start" to begin the format process. 3. Follow the on-screen prompts and safely remove the player from your PC when the "Format Complete" display appears. 4. Unplug the player from the PC and when the player is powered up, the message "No Files" should appear on the player's LCD screen 5. Switch the mode back to "MTP", or continue to use "MSC". Note: It is best to use "MTP" when you are transferring subscription music to the player. I hope this helps. :)

Empty folder


There may be possible reasons why your Sansa E250 would display an message on the LCD even when you've downloaded files to it: (1) The music file type is not supported by the player. Sansa players support only MP3 and WMA files. To determine what file type your have, right click on the file type and it should display the "properties" dialog box. Check if it is MP3 or WMA. For example, iTunes music files will not work with the player, nor will WAV or MIDI files. (2) Your music files are supported but the bit rate is not within the range that the player supports. Sansa players support MP3 files up to 128 KBPS and WMA files up to 64 KBPS. You may need to use a 3rd party music file editor to convert the files to a supported bit rate (3) You may have saved your music files in a folder and copied the folder to the player. Your Sansa E250 will not recognize folders. Either save them in the root directory or inside the "Music" folder -- your player's default folder for music files. Hope this info helps :)

Deleting songs


Chances are that you are using windows xp. open up your sansa folder to where it says pictuer, movies, ect. look at the picture to see what to do. In your player folder click tools --> folder options --> View. Under hidden files and folders click 'show hidden files and folders, click ok. The music folder would now show up where the videos and pictures are. Simply open the music folder and delete the ones you do not want. By default the songs are sorted by artist --> album --> song.

Deleting files from Sansa e250


The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD: 1. Set the e250 to MSC mode. 2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector. 3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.) To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
