SanDisk Sansa C250 - How do I rename songs?

I have older CDs which must not have the correct labeling. So when I copied to my computer then sync to mp3, it comes over as Unknown artist, unknown album. When I right click in Windows Media Player, I see the rename file, but it won't allow me to use that feature. Any help? Thanks!!

Re: SanDisk Sansa C250 - How do I rename songs?

You can go to the file directly and rename it if Windows Media Player wont allow it.

The file should be located in the My Music Folder.

Right Click on the track and select Properties>Summary Tab. Then you can edit any of the fields you want.

The next time you open Windows Media Player, the changes will be there.

Best of Luck.

Synchronize songs to Sansa c250

newtech -change the USB mode on the player away from where it is now. Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC.

darama - you have to plug the mp3 player into the computer and refresh it through Bearshare. If you let your subscription lapse, you won't be able to use the songs naymore.

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - 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.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

The media device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected

Make sure you're not using the media with another program while you attempt to copy/sync it to your device.

Pretty late response, but meh.

My Sandisk Sansa C250 playing MP3 files in random order

The order is not random it just appears that way..
The order they are copied seems to be the order they are played.
It looks at the ID tags no the file names.
The way I load my songs on are using Media Monkey or Windows Media Player 11.. I create a playlist then Sync it to the Sansa.
