Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Memory is filled with some unknown stuff that I can't see

I'm using the Sansa e280 not getting much music on to the system. It shows it being full when I sync only 48 short songs on it. Im sure there is a good 7+ gigs that should be available but I'm unable to see what files are on there to be able to erase them. Would like to find out how to free up that filled memory.

Thanks,
rod

How do you put music on the SD memory card ? The memory on the player is full but I'd rather have all/or additional music on the memory card


Create a folder named "MUSIC" on the card and put the music in there. You can do that with the operating system's explorer, simply drag&drop.

If you put stuff on multiple cards, you can then swap them out easily when you get tired of one type of music.

Added music, but can't listen


I experienced a similar problem caused by corrupt files saved on the internal memory of my e280.
(I could not delete/remove the files) I had to format the internal drive of the e280
and re-copy the files back on to the unit. Works great now. When formatting the device
use the command from windows. (ie right click on the internal memory icon and select format)

Note: Formatting will remove/delete all the files (eg music,photos..) from the e280 so make sure that
you have backups.

Cheers

Data Refresh


The simple answer is to edit the genre data of your hard rock songs from "Hard Rock" to "HardRock" (remove the space). This sounds stupid but it causes the e280 to freeze during the refresh database phase after writing songs to the device.

I've also noticed that some genres are renamed from what they actually are. Soul, for example, shows up as Punk in the genre list of the e280. Southern Rock displays as Comedy. Mine has version 3.01.11 firmware. I renamed "Soul" to "Soul-" to get rid of the Punk tag, and "Southern Rock" to "SouthernRock" to get rid of the Comedy tag. "Ballad" shows up as "unknown" so I change it to "SoftRock" to solve that issue.

I haven't tried other genres so if you don't have any hard rock songs on your player, try renaming the genres tags to something else to see if it solves your problem.

Sansa 280 with 8 gigs


The message says it needs 6MB of space for the MUSIC DB ( the database, the artist names, etc).

You need to delete some of the recordings off of your device to free up some space.

You can manually delete the files while connected to your computer from My Computer>Device Name (e280)>MUSIC Folder.




Best of Luck.
