Re: Weird?.....

This problem may occur if you are running Windows Media Player 11. Open Media Player, click on Help ---> About, for version number.

If necessary, uninstall Media Player 11 and it should roll back to version 10.

Install and run Philips Firmware/Device Manager and select repair option. Follow the on-screen prompts and try synching your tracks again.

Try browsing through your MP3 player using windows explorer/apple filesystem, and not with any sort of syncing program. The files are likely in a weird spot on the MP3 player. Also, try doing a search for *.mp3 on the drive letter that represents your mp3 player.

On some mp3 players, the songs cannot be copy-protected, even if the specs say they can take wma format. Also, the cheaper music subs don't give you transfer rights, even though they allow you to play the song on your computer. What music svc are you using? It makes a big difference.

Unfortunately, the company did not fix this problem before they discontinued the player.

Your problem sounds different from the one I had, but you might try the solution that worked for my problem: Go to a computer that has Windows Media Player Version 10 (not version 11), use iRiver's firmware update tool to install firmware version 1.77. Then, for me at least, my T10 worked on Windows Media Player Version 11 computers.

Copying songs from cds

It could be because there in WMA format and the ones you download from limewire are MP3.

Try getting the songs of the cd's again and using this converter to convert them and put them on your mp3 player and see if they work then.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way.

I can't delete the songs and the computer says my mp3 is "full"

You need to be in MSC mode to do deletion in My Computer; put in MSC mode in the settings menu under USB, then plug in, go to My Computer and open it as a drive, go to Music folder and delete by rightclicking on songs and choosing delete. You can also format the player by rightclicking on the drive letter of the sansa and choosing format. If you are deleting from a program like Rhapsody (ugh) or windows media player, you will get a lot of issues and not all will delete. Stick with My Computer in MSC. Also as a side note, make sure you have all file folders showing including hidden files in the tools menu in My Computer

Won't play the songs i put into my sansa e250

You might have to take the product back because you might of corrupted it. I corrupted mine just recently and I had the same problem. If you decide to get another one, don't unplug the MP3 before it's done saving.
