This was suggested to me by some TECHIE at BestBuy and it worked for me!!

I had the same problem. The techie suggested NOT USING THE Sandisk software at all! Just go to "My Computer" the player will appear as another storage device there (Even if the stupid software doesn't detect it as being attached!).

Simply drag your music or pictures to the 'storage device' which is your Sandisk player.

It is a very simple and quick fix.

I spent hours messing with it. I loaded my Sandisk in about 5 minutes after I was told this!

Good luck!

If you have more than one USB port try another port. If not try downloading Yahoo! Music Jukebox.

Hi,
1. Make sure that you have Windows Media Player 11 (Open WMP --> Goto Help --> About WMP --> v??)  2. If you do not have it, install it from this location: http://www.microsoft.com/mediaplayer   3. Change the Mode on Device: Go into Menu --> Settings --> USB Mode:Auto Detect/MTP/MSC  4. Select MSC and it should work. If it does not try Powercycling your device (turn it off and then turn it on).  5. Try other modes as well. 
Keep the device in AutoDetect Mode and follow the instructions below (Only for XP):
i. Connect your Device ii. Right click on My Computer and select Manage iii. Select Device Manager iv. At the right hand side look out for Portable devices and click on the + symbol to display your device v. Right Click on the device and select Update Drivers vi. Select 'No, not at this time' and click Next vii. Select 'Install from a list or specific location' and then click Next viii. Select 'Don't search, I'll choose the driver to install' and then click Next ix. Select 'MTP Device' and then click Next. This should install the device and then should be ready for  use with WMP or any other media player

Does not detect


Windows Media player should detect it. Try firing up WMP and then plug in your player. If that doesn't work, try updating WMP while the players connected? If that doesn't work. Do you have the updater installed? Might help.

Cant remove songs


try opening it up in rhapsody or windows media player and delete the songs through there.:

  1. open either rhap or wmp
  2. the devices should be in a tab to the left (rhap) or on the top (wmp)
    1. for wmp, it might be in a tab in a tab
  3. click on the music "+"
  4. and from there delete the music

Songs are not being show (not getting detected) in the music list


k i had the same problem twice,

the first time i couldnt fix it because i ended up getting a device read error when i tried to acces it in my computer, but i think whatever caused that was different than the second time.

this time my device retained all the songs origionally on it but wouldnt reckognize any new songs. In addition to that, when i deleted all the songs off the player and only put a couple back on the player didnt register those either. so it would seem to me that it is a problem with the device's database refreshing algorithim...although thats just a guess.

neways...to fix it i copied all the data & folders off the sansa (including the .txt and .sdk files) and stored them on my desktop. After that I tried the e200 firmware upgrader available at sandisk.com

After messing around for 2 hours trying to figure out what was going on i deleted all my music, videos, recordings and pictures off the device and proceeded to format it in msc mode.

after the format was complete, i re-copied the data i had backedup on my desktop and pasted it back onto the sansa.

it seems to have worked...but then again i still don't know what caused the problem so it may not work for you. (i think it may have been something to do with one of my music files since both instances happened after i uploaded the same 5 songs onto the player)

also, i had numerous virtual folders & files that had conflicting sizes and would not open when i clicked on them (windows says they had +4GB sizes but properties says 0B also when clicked i get a file not found error).

hope this helps.

WMP won't detect my MP3


See if this helps: -Close all programmes on your computer. -Turn off your Sansa e250. -Attach the cable into the USB port of your computer before attaching it into the actual e250. -The scroll wheel on the Sansa should have turned on by now. -Then it's just a matter of waiting for a few seconds. -Try opening Windows Media Player to see if it detects your device. Otherwise, be patient. Goodluck.
