Re: Songs Not Loading On Player

Did you use Windows Media Player to format?

WMP never does a thorough format.

If so, try formatting thru My Computer. Right Click on the Device (e260) and select FORMAT.

Then try transferring your music again.

Best of Luck.

Problem recognizing songs in sansa e260 mp3 player.

From what I'm hearing you don't have a good driver. If you still have the disk use that. If not google it or something. I have a Sansa e260 as well so I would suggest loading the songs on in windows media player rather that windows explorer. If you open Media Player and then go to sync and it does not recognize your device, then you have a bad driver. If not, then start syncing your songs that way.

Hope everything works,

Loading my mp3s

Go into Windows Media Player and click the arrow underneath the Rip Tab --> Go to Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3. Re-rop the CD's in mp3 format. Delete all songs that are currently on your mp3 player that aren't working right. Reload the newly-ripped mp3 files to your player. Good luck!

Doesn't play songs

You could use the Sync option on Windows Media Player 10 and try it like that, if that doesn't work try loading it directly into the MP3 by going to :computer, F:drive, music and then just add it there. or maybe the songs you are adding aren't MP3 or WMA format depending on what format the MP3 accepts.

hopes that helps

Remember when you format memory like a hard drive you erase everything. Move music to your internal mp3 memory and do a profile - folders should appear. If you have flashed your player with the firmware update you can get 520 songs on the player for both internal and external combined but be warned that if you exceed this count your player will start to forget the earlier loaded songs - listed but not addressable (playable). The same is for the folder count eg. add album = artist + ablum title (min 2 folders). Plus always profile your songs after loading new music or deleting as this is an index build process to play song 152 = title x. This includes accidental radio recordings to MP3s. RD2312 , RD2315, RD2317 Lyra™ mp3 flash player Firmware/Application Upgrade Version 3.11 fixes:
  • Supports a total of 520 songs, in up to 50 folders, with up to 8 levels of subfolders.

Sansa e250 getting worse since "upgrade"

Format your player and re-transfer your songs. The best way to format the player is by changing the player to MSC, then connect it to your computer and open My Computer and right-click and format the player remove the quick format then click start. :D
