Adding Music To My Sansa e250

So I used Windows Media player to put music onto my mp3 player, but it does not show up on my device. When I plug it into the USB it shows up as used space on my computer, but I cannot play it on my device.

The directions are pretty short and sweet and do not offer any troubleshooting information. I just want to know how I'm supposed to load music onto my device!!

    We bought the Sandisk e250 and also installed Itunes. We bought the kids itunes gift cards, but after they downloaded the music I cannot figure out how to get the music onto them. I tried to drag/drop and I tried the converter too....any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

You are supossed to use the converter that comes on the installation cd.
or simply drag your media to the correct folder in your mp3player folder which can be found in My Computer.

so -Song.mp3- drag to> --Music- which is in -SansaE520- folder[MyComputer]

Whow come my rca th1100a mp3 player shows that there is music on it while plugged into computer, but shows that it's empty when I unplug it ?hat's your problem?


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

Don't have a software to download music


Hello Nurock_nu107,

If you are trying to find music online to download, so that you can put them on your mp3 player then you can use company's such as Napster. I can not condone the use of Illegal music sites.

If you are wanting to put the music you already have onto the mp3 player sansa does not give out a special program to do so.

You can use windows media player or a program called winamp (google it if youd like) and you can open them, plug in your mp3 player and it will find the device. You can then drag and drop your music files onto the device as shown on the program.

Your second option is simply opening My Computer, plug in your mp3 player and when windows finds it a new drive will show up on your My Computer screen. This is your mp3 device. You can drag and drop your music files to this drive and it will transfer them to your mp3 player.

If you have any further question's or comment's feel free to post them and I will be of further assistance. Have a good day and thank you for choosing Fixya!

I am trying to use windows explorer to manage my files and I can not see the files to remove them. I do not have the sansa interface anymore, but I recall being able to use explorer for adding and deleting...


With it plugged in, go to My Computer>Your player device. Find the Music folder, you can add or delete music inside the folder with the player plugged in.

DOES NOT RECOGNIZE PLAYER WHEN CONNECTED


ive got the new version of the sony sonic stage downloaded onto my laptop,and when i plug my player into my laptop via usb cable,the player itself is recognized straight away as a harddrive/removable disk etc,and you have to transfrer music onto the player as from sonic stage music library,and you also have to creatate you own music library via sonic stage,and u can also transfer music from your own music library wich you use via windows media player,and also u can transfer a cd into you sony sonic stage music libraty,and this is similar to when your using the windows media player as to rip a cd or transfer music onto an mp3 player,as i use all diffrent types of mp3 players myself,and i find the archos gmini sx 202 player to be pretty awesome player,as ive got to of them as well,and i use windows media player as to transfer music files onto them,and i cannot transfer any music files onto the sony ones via windown media player as those music file wont show up on the player at all,and ive tried this myself,and it will only work via sony sonic stage.
