MODES in Sansa c250

I understood regarding the Modes. But, How can we change the mode intentionally? I feel like the software (01.01.05P) in my player does not have this option under SETTINGS. Is there any other option to switch MODES?

Re: MODES in Sansa c250

Once you turn on the player it should take you to the last place you were, usually playing a certain media file. I have heard about this model, however I havent used it, but in its bigger brother breifly pressing the power button takes you to the modes menu, give it a go on ur player.

Can't locate the music on the player in windows explorer. Every folder seems to be empty. The player itself recognize and plays about 230 titles...but where are these files located on the player and why...

The location of all the music on your Sansa is Clip+/Internal Memory/Music.

If the folder is empty, you should now think on which mode you you transfer the songs MTP or MSC. If you transfer songs on MTP, you can only see them on that mode and vice versa.

Try to check the current settings on your Sansa by going to MENU/SETTINGS/SYSTEM SETTINGS/USB MODE

Try changing the USB modes and check the folder again.

If songs are not showing on both modes, possible that the files are hidden or corrupted.

Deleting music

There are two modes of use for your player. Once you put music or files on it in one mode you can tell files are there but you can not access them or delete them. So, You have to access the files on the player the way they where put on the player. The modes are Msc & Mtp to see more about this click this link ...Solve your MP3 Player Connection Problem.

My sansa mp3 for some reason isnt being recognized by my wont even show the "safely remove hardware" button on the taskbar

On your sansa, go to "Settings" then System Settings" then "USB Mode," then change it to MSC, if that does not work, try the other modes, just in case.
Hope this helps!

Can't see screen or change modes on sansa clip 2gb mp3

You posted your question under "Sansa Clip," so this is a Sansa Clip manual:

This model goes to "sleep" quickly by default - pressing any button will wake it up. The button that looks like a house (if the paint didn't get rubbed off already) allows you to go one level higher in the menu tree. Have fun with it.

My sansa e250 mp3 player is unable to connect to computer nor recognized to use .It won`t turn on change the modes

turning on to change modes is your problem. If it's completely dead you may need to replace it or refurbish it. Or if the battery is completely dead plug it in all day until you can get it to turn on. ONCE ON then you can worry about getting it to connect. Try this:
There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.

Restart your computer - I was about to give up on my Sansa for precisely this reason. Then I restarted the computer and everything was fine again.

Try to reset the player by holding the power button down for 15-20 seconds or until it resets....the latest firmware for the e c250 resolved much of the freezing issues....also there are two modes for you to use the c250 the msc and mtp.....try deleting in mtp mode.
