You need to enable Hidden Files and Folders on your PC to see the MUSIC folder as it is hidden.





Best of Luck.

SOURCE: i can't find my music folder

I would just update the firmware and start over from scratch.
The "Plays for Sure" system only recognizes protected WMA's. The other mode will not allow you to play music period. I've never heard of anyone having that problem with that particular player, but if what you are saying is true, then you will be forced to use only protected WMA files - which means you can never let your Rhapsody or other music service subscription expire. And if there is ever a problem, you will have to delete all and reload.
As an experiemnt load at least one Mp3 format file into the player, and see if it plays fine. If yes, then only use Mp3 files from here on out. They are less problematic.

SOURCE: icant find music on player

The reason you can't see it, is that, for some unknown reason, the music folder is hidden by default. When viewing the Sansa in Windows Explorer you need to enable "view all folders". Click on the TOOLS menu at the top of the window, then folder options, click on the VIEW tab, and choose "Show hidden files and folders". Click APPLY and OK to come out.

You should now see the music folder and be able to drag and drop files to it. Don't forget to go back into Folder Options and hide the hidden folders again when you're finished, as leaving it in this setting can leave critical system files exposed, that could be accidentally deleted.

All this was for Windows XP, but other versions are similar, it was on the VIEW menu in Win 98 if I remember correctly. Hope that helps.

Music from burnt cds...won't go to assigned folder


thats the way the software works. I'd suggest using an option like within winamp - where it looks for media tags and fills in all the appropriate information as to artist and genre for you. Winamp will do this with songs that have absolutely no information in them whatsoever (like burns) but it cant with homemade files like your buddy's garage band. The only way to seperate it besides folders is within playlists.

How do i delete songs off of my sansa e250?


You can manually delete the music thru My Computer. Just click on the device name, and open the Music folder. If you dont have a Music folder, you need to enable hidden files and folders on your computer. Best of Luck.

Deleting songs


Chances are that you are using windows xp. open up your sansa folder to where it says pictuer, movies, ect. look at the picture to see what to do. In your player folder click tools --> folder options --> View. Under hidden files and folders click 'show hidden files and folders, click ok. The music folder would now show up where the videos and pictures are. Simply open the music folder and delete the ones you do not want. By default the songs are sorted by artist --> album --> song.
