When I plug in my sansa player, it shows all the songs on my player but not in alphabetical order. Also, when I sync music onto my player it does not show up on list of songs on the screen until I disconnect it and check the menu. Do you have any suggestions?. Thanks Leonard

Re: sync songs don't show on my player
It says in the user manual for C-100 sansa player that "various software packages are available to syncrhonize your songs on your device. Please refer to the specific software package instructions. "
I used Windows Media Player 9 and when you use these older Media Players you must remember to change your USB setting on your Sansa player to MSC. Turn on your Sansa Player, Choose the Main Menu and select settings. Don't choose auto-detect, but select MSC. If you choose auto-detect it will default to a setting called "MTP", and MTP wants Windows Media Player 10 to download your stuff.
I'm not familiar with how ITunes works, but perhaps AUTODETECT will work to synchronize your files.

I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else

I hope i could help
"Refresh database" is a normal message that you will get everytime you unplug the Sansa from the computer - don't worry about that aspect.
If the songs that you have transferred have DRM encryption on them, they may not play right (or at all) on the Sansa.
If you have Windows Media Player 11, I would get the firmware update from the Sansa website AND format the Sansa inside Windows Media Player:

Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything and get your player functioning normally.
1. plug in Sansa to computer 2. Open My computer 3. Click on your Sansa 3. Click MUSIC 4. Delete the songs you dont want on it...if that folder is empty make sure you have windows showing all the hidden files...
use windows media player and go to sync and put songs there..hope that help..
If the player keeps freezing while plugged into the computer, you may need to Format the player in Windows Media Player 11 after performing the firmware upgrade. This will erase all of your songs off the player, so you will have to reload them. But your player will work fine after that.

did you click and drag the songs you want on to the right panel.then click sync then when it is done it should take you to a page with songs that you have synced. next to each song if they were successfuly downloaded it should say on the devide or portable media player if they don't then you have done something wrong and i can't help you there unless you figure out where you went wrong.:)
