Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)

1 Answer

I needs help with my Sansa c-250

I hook it up to my car stereo, only certain songs will play, the unit skips the rest.
All the songs it skips have been downloaded from yahoo music unlimited. I have contacted them and this is waht they had to say.....
Based on the symptoms you describe, we suggest you update the firmware
for your device, as this has corrected a similar issue for other Yahoo!
Music Jukebox

Firmware is another word for software. In some cases, a device may be
shipped with software that does not recognize certain portable devices
or services. However, newer software is often available from the
manufacturer's website, and this can be downloaded for free to update
your device.

We suggest you contact your device manufacturer for assistance with this

Re: I needs help with my Sansa c-250

From what you say, connectivity is not the problem. More likely the format of the songs is not supported by the car stereo.
The music that you downloaded from Yahoo may have DRM (digital rights management) attached to the tracks, especially if you had to pay for the music.
If you have paid for these tracks then you are well within your rights to download these tracks (for free) as plain old MP3's from P2P sources.
My candid opinion is that anyone paying for music that cannot be copied or transferred to another device in the first place is a little bit too honest for their own good.

Sansa 2gb sync

You must synchronize this player to rhapsody at least once every 30 days - if you ever cancel your subscription, the songs will cease to function. And you thought you were getting a deal.

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?

You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

Skipping songs

We could try formatting the player and after the format has been complete try updating the firmware of the player. Change the settings fo the player to MSC then connect to your computer, open my computer and right-click the player and choose format remove the tick mark on the quick format and after the format has been completed. Unplug the device and go to the sandisk website and download the firmware update and install it and when it ask you to connect the device hook the plyer and perform the update for the player. Note: It may be the songs on the player are not that properly transferred that why it is skipping and also the player might also have had bad sectors that is why we have formatted the player. Hope this helps.

My Sansa skips the songs I put on it, what can should I do

I restored settings to default factory settings and has been working and not skipping the songs. Restoring to factory settings does not delete any of your data/songs
