Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Mp3 software insists on alphabetic sorting

Even when I arrange my mp3 files (tracks in an audiobook)in the order I want them, and they appear ok in the manager (wmp, rhapsody, mediamonkey, winamp, etc etc) they get alphabetically sorted by track title in the mp3 player's memory and as a result are out of order for the audio book. Short of renaming all of the tracks into alpha order is there a fix?) I have tried everything I can think of in MTP and MSC modes for the player as well as playlists....

Itunes won't recognize new MP3 player - Gigaware 42-420 GX400. Do I need a driver file? The only installation disk that came with the player was for Rhapsody software.


iTunes won't work with MP3 players other than iPods, unless you install another product like iTunes Agent (ita.sourceforge.net), and even then it's no guarantee, plus you may find iTunes Agent difficult to use.

You should be able to use Rhapsody, Windows Media Player, or other programs like MediaMonkey or Winamp.

Once you choose the program you want to use to copy songs to your GX400, you'll need to locate your songs on your computer's disk in order to load them into the program's library. To find out where iTunes accesses your songs, click on iTunes' "Edit" menu, then "Preferences", then the "Advanced" tab. You'll see the song directory listed under "iTunes Media Folder Location".

Transfer Audible AA files to Droid(X/2), Walkman, Zune(HD), PSP(go), Windows...


Quoted from: Convert Audible AA to MP3

Audible, which enjoys a near-monopoly in the online digital download market for audiobooks, has a ton of audiobooks that can be purchased and downloaded. They also provide a file manager which allows you transfer your audiobooks to a digital rights management (DRM) enabled player, like Apple iPod, Creative Zen, SanDisk Sansa, various GPS devices, and the Amazon Kindle. What do you do if your MP3 player isn't supported by the Audible manager? like Motorola Droid, HTC Evo 4g, Windows phone 7 serise, Creative Zen, Zune, PSP, Sony WorkMan, Blackberry, etc, so if you want to listen to AA files on any device you have, there is a need to Remove DRM from Audible AA format and Convert .AA to MP3.
This tutorial will tell a quick way to easily convert Audible AA to MP3 files (DRM-free).
The Tool We need:
A Audible AA to MP3 Converter Program - Daniusoft DRM Converter, which can easily remove Audible Audiobook DRM protection, convert Audible's DRM'd .AA to .MP3 WMV WAV files for certain devices in batch conversion mode, and finally you can even directly transfer Audiobooks AA files to portable devices, perfectly supporting Windows 7/Vista/XP and more.

Step1. Download and install the DRM removal program - Daniusoft DRM Converter, the main interface is shown as below:

Step 2: Import AA files to the program.
Load AA files by clicking 'Add Video' button on upper left of Daniusoft DRM Converter interface - choose file type as '*.aa' to add files into the software.

Step 3: Set output format.
Choose "MP3 (MPEG Layer-3)" on the output format window, and select the output folder to save the file to after it has been converted. Additionally, if you hope for higher output quality, Daniusoft DRM Converter allows you to set "Bit Rate, Sample Rate, Encoder, Channel " for your tracks via "Setting" option.

Step 4: After finishing the three steps above, click "Start" button, A progress bar will show the status of the conversion. When the conversion is complete, the file is in opened format MP3..

Now you can own the AA sound tracks forever and you can feel free to enjoy your Audible Audiobooks on such as Sony walkman, Zune(HD), PSP(go), Creative Zen, Sansa Fuze, Android phone(Nexus one, Droid(X/2)), HTC Phone(HTC EVO/Desire/HD2/HD7) .

Downloaded books from the library won't play


I was having the same problem when I used Overdrive Media Console to transfer my audiobook files to my Sansa. I updated the license and retransferred and even tried changing the USB settings on the mp2 player. What finally worked? Using Windows Media Player to sync the files instead. When I hooked up my Sansa I chose "use WMP to sync files" and then I dragged/dropped the audiobook files to the mediaplayer window. The audiobook now plays without any problems since WMP made sure the files have the latest subscription update code.

I have a Philips GOgear SA5285 and I can load the audible audiobooks and they go to the audiobook file but when I load my library books from Netlibrary.com they load as songs and do not have book marks, so...


If you are a newbie, and you primarily want the mp3 player for audiobooks, then go ahead and take this player back to the store - I'll tell you why:
The deal between Audible and Philips fell through before the latest series of GoGear's was released. Therefore, even though the player has an Audible folder, it will not properly play Audible audiobook files. Sad, but true.

Your post reminds me that I need to write a Consumer Watch article on mp3 players that claim to play audiobooks - 90% of them will not easily allow you to play audiobooks - you will have to jump through hoops.

If you still want to try, here is what you want to do:
1. Delete any audiobooks off the GoGear, but make sure that you have a copy of the audibooks on your computer itself.
2. Open Windows Media Player. Find your audiobook files in your library. If they don't show up, then you will have to move your mouse over the Library tab - a small black arrow should appear underneath the word "Library" - click the black arrow and select "Add to Library". Click "Add" and find the folder in which your Audible files are stored. It may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player will add these files to Windows Media Player.
3. Right-click an Audiobook file starting with Chapter 1 of whatever book, and select "Advanced Tag Editor". One-by-one, manually assign an a track number to each audiobook chapter - Track 1 for Chapter 1, Track 2 for Chpater 2, etc.
4. Now, re-add the audiobook files to your GoGear.
5. You might additionally have to go into the Settings menu of your GoGear, and turn Shuffle mode off - your user's manual can show you how to do this.

Sound like a lot of work? You betcherbottom dollar it's a lot of work. This particular mp3 player is not the best for audiobooks.

Recording Audio-books


The GoGear says it is compatible with Audiobooks, but only in the loosest sort of way. It has no way of natively playing them in order or keeping your place, etc. Even the GoGear's that have an Audible folder won't work well, b/c the deal between Audible and Philips fell through prior to release - LOL. Your best bet would be to open Windows Media Player, right click each audiobook track, select "Advanced Tag Editor," and manually re-enter the track number for each chapter in the order that you want them to play. Then delete the current audiobook files off the Philips, and then reload the ones that you have just edited. Good luck!

RCA TH1100A track order problems


Here's how I resolved the Play-Order Problem with my TH1101A using Windows Exporer:
1. I put every file (MP3 and WMA) in one folder on my computer.
2. I renamed the files 001.mp3, 002.mp3, etc in the order I want them to play.
3. On the FOLDER, Right click - Properties - Customize Tab
4. In dropdown, change to "Documents (for any file type), click Apply
5. General Tab, "Advanced..." button - UNcheck "For fast searching, allow Indexing..."
6. then click "OK" "Apply" "OK" to exit folder properties.
7. In explorer, all the files in the right pane should be sorted by name in proper order.
8. Copy the files to the Pearl.
This worked for me, but of course, I can't guarantee anything.
