Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Greys out and resets when selecting an album?

So I have all my music on my 4GB e200r and it's playing music, but anytime I select an album from the artists menu the screen greys out and it resets the player. I've been getting around this by using the "Play All" function but that still involves shuffling to the song I want which is irritating. I've reformatted and patched it twice because it started greying out and freezing but now it just restarts the player as if I just turned it on which is better but still makes me nervous. What the heck is going on?

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: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
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.

6th gen. nano has shuffle issues. plays same song over and over


The iPod's shuffle feature lets you randomize playback of albums, songs or even your entire music library. You may also find this feature useful if you want to listen to forgotten tracks in your library or discover songs you haven't listened to yet. Disabling the shuffle feature will return playback of a song list to its standard consecutive order. You can enable and disable the shuffle feature at any time.

Navigate to the main menu. Select "Settings." Scroll to the "Shuffle" option. Select "Songs" or "Albums." If you select "Songs," the iPod Classic will shuffle the songs on whatever song list you listen to. If you select "Albums," the iPod Classic will play all songs of an album you select in order and then randomly select another album. Navigate to the playlist or album to which you want to listen. Play a song to initiate the shuffle. b> iPod Nano and iPod Touch Tap the "Songs" icon on your nano home screen. If you are using an iPod Touch, open the "iPod" application. Navigate to the song list, playlist or album you want to play. Tap the "Shuffle" icon at the top of the list to activate the feature.

How can I upload album art onto a philips gogear vibe for all my artists? I have album art inside my folders and i had itunes embed the art into the files when i uploaded them; however the art only shows...


There are 3 possible ways in getting the album art for your music album.
  1. Album art may be obtained from the online Music CD database that Windows Media Player uses.
    Note: Not all music albums have album art available in the online CD database.
  2. From the online music store where you purchased your songs or albums, the album art may be downloaded along with your purchase.
  3. You may also create your own album art by transferring your favorite jpg photo into the selected album folder and rename it to Album Art.jpg.
To download album art from the online database and transfer to the player.
  1. Make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Launch Windows Media Player.
  3. Go to Tools> Options> Player.
  4. Make sure the "Enable picture support for devices" check box is selected.
  5. Click the Apply, then the OK buttons.
  6. Select the "RIP" tab on the task menu bar.
  7. Insert your music CD into the CD drive of your computer. The Windows Media Player will take a few seconds to show the content of the CD on the display.
  8. Click "Find Album Info". The Player accesses the database hosted by WindowsMedia.com and displays information about the album in the Album Information pane. The album art will be shown if available.(Note: For some music CD, album art may not be found in any of the online database.)
  9. Click Finish to update all the information about your album and show it in the Rip pane.
  10. Connect your Device to the computer.
  11. Select the tracks that you would like to rip by clicking in the check b ox next to the track.
  12. Click the Rip music button to start ripping the music CD.
  13. Once the tracks are finished being ripped to the library, go to the Media library and select the songs that you have just ripped.
  14. Add them to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  15. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  16. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.

To create your own album art and transfer it to the Device
  1. In Windows Media Player , right click on the song you want to update the album art of.
  2. Select "Advanced Tag Editor" option.
  3. In the screen that pops up , select the "Pictures" tab.
  4. Use the drop down list to make sure that the type of picture you add is the Cover (front).
  5. Click on "Add" to associate a picture as the Album art for the song and all the songs in that album.
  6. Add this (and other songs from the same album) to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  7. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  8. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.
You can also click on this link to show the graphical steps on how to upload/add album art on your songs.

Hope this information helps. If it does, please do not forget to give me a rating and a comment.

My Sansa m240 is saying there is no music on it when i plug it in the computer the music is really still there...what do i do?


Look for changing the USB mode of the device to MSC or MTP
Go to USB Mode settings. if you have a Sansa View - From the Main Menu, select More -> Settings/Options -> System Settings -> USB Mode.
if you have a Sansa Fuze - From the Main Menu, select Settings > System Settings > USB Mode.
if you have a Sansa Clip, e200v1 series, e200v2 series and e200R - From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC. e200R - PlayforSure is MTP and Rhapsody is MSC
NOTE: The USB mode is not selectable for Sansa View (FW 1.03.XX and below), Sansa e200v2 (FW 03.01.14 and below), and Sansa Clip (FW 1.01.11 and below). The USB Mode setting can be enabled on these players using a firmware update.
For a more detailed explanation of MSC and MTP modes see my tip posted here --- -> http://www.fixya.com/support/r3774047-solve_mp3_player_connection_problem <-

MP3 playback stops at the last file in folder and does not continue to next folder


Not much you can do.

You could rename all your tracks, and put them in one folder.

EG

ALBUM NAME - 01
ALBUM NAME - 02
ALBUM NAME - 03


ALBUM NAME - 10
ALBUM NAME - 11 ETC.

This way, the tracks will play in order within each album.

Use 2 digit track numbers or they will play 1,10,11,2,3,4, etc

Playing music on my ipod classic


I'm pretty sure you can't do this. At least, I haven't figured out how.

One thing you can do is make a playlist in itunes and drag several albums into it. Then your ipod can play the whole playlist. But this requires some forethought, since you have to set up the playlist on your computer.

Another thing you can do is create an on-the-go playlist right on your ipod. Here's how:

1. from the main menu, click music, then albums
2. scroll to the first album you want in your playlist
3. press and hold the center button until the highlight blinks. don't go into the album; you're pressing and holding on the name of the album
4. scroll to the next album you want in the playlist
5. repeat step 3 until you've got all the albums in your playlist that you want

Now, go to the main menu and press music, then playlists. Scroll all the way to the bottom and notice that you have a new playlist called on-the-go. If you go into it, you'll see that it has all the songs from all the albums you selected.

If you scroll past all the songs, you also have options to clear or permanently save the playlist.

Now you can play all those albums by selecting the playlist.

Again, it requires some setup, but it does enable you to play multiple albums without interruption. A nice side-effect of this method is that you can choose the order, whereas an automatic next album feature would play them in alphabetical order.

(FYI, you can add individual songs to an on-the-go playlist as well.)

And one final option: If you go to Music - albums - ALL, you can press play and it'll play your entire iPod in order. You can scroll to any song you want to start on, but you can't really scroll to the exact album you want to start on -- unless you know where to find the first song on that album.


I know that all three options are available in the latest iPod software. If something's not working for you, you may need to update your iPod's software through iTunes.

Apple ipod nano wont play the full song


First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
