Re: san disk e250 mp3 player
DId you purchased the songs you are trying to transfer from itunes? you got to make sure the songs doesnt have any DRM license..you should be able to use the program that comes with your device to convert those songs...find out if your songs have license in them...

To put music on your Sansa e250 you will do this:
Download Windows Media Player 9 or 10 to your computer.
I would use Media Player 10 as it is the newer player.
After you download Media Player 9 or 10 open it up on your computer, and then hook up your mp3 player, it should be recognized by Media Player and then you can transfer the songs to it.
You need to put the music cd in your computer cd player and download the songs to Media Player using Windows Media Player 9 or 10.
I have also included a website where you can download the user manual, it will say e200, but the instructions are also for the e250.
Good Luck, I hope this helps.
Please rate me, Thank You.
Music file problem:
Your music might not be compatable with your MP3 player.
If you are using it with mac and windows.
like you used mac to put the music on but you try to use windows to delete the files.
Mac uses a diffrent file system to windows.
Did you purchased those songs from itunes? you got to make sure the songs you are trying to transfer doenst have any DRM licence in it...I believe your device comes with a software that hekps you convert mp3 to mp4...what kind of device do you have?
The card will not add to the MP3's memory, it shows up as a removable disk on Windows Media Player version 11.
Otherwise, you can manually drag & drop files thru My Computer>Removable Disk (*).
FYI, the memory card will only support un-protected MP3 files, not Rhapsody or other subscription content. Also, you will need to free up some space on the player to allow some free space for the database to accommodate for the additional music.
where did you get the songs from? make sure the files are in mp3 file format not in another format and make sure they are playing properly before transferring them to the player. The player can support MP3 and WMA files. IF you are sure they are mp3 format the player using USB mode and then retransfer them to the player.
There may be possible reasons why your Sansa E250 would display an message on the LCD even when you've downloaded files to it:
(1) The music file type is not supported by the player. Sansa players support only MP3 and WMA files. To determine what file type your have, right click on the file type and it should display the "properties" dialog box. Check if it is MP3 or WMA. For example, iTunes music files will not work with the player, nor will WAV or MIDI files.
(2) Your music files are supported but the bit rate is not within the range that the player supports. Sansa players support MP3 files up to 128 KBPS and WMA files up to 64 KBPS. You may need to use a 3rd party music file editor to convert the files to a supported bit rate
(3) You may have saved your music files in a folder and copied the folder to the player. Your Sansa E250 will not recognize folders. Either save them in the root directory or inside the "Music" folder -- your player's default folder for music files.
Hope this info helps :)
