I have tried to put songs on my sansa by drag and drop from limewire and its not working, i doont know how to get to mtp mode and putting songs on my sansa is getting very complicated for me.please help.
When i used LIMEWIRE i remember being able to go to the folder on my comp with all of the songs that i downloaded. i think i went to FILE then "Open containing Folder" or maybe "Explore Folder" then i moved all the songs i downloaded into my regular MUSIC folder under MY DOCUMENTS. That way i could access all the songs when i wanted without opening LimeWire. Just figure out how to view the folder where all of your LimeWire files are, then you should be able to move the files directly to your player or other music folder for easy access. ~Rebecca~

First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:
) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB". 2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".
Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.
However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.
To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:
- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode - Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list - Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings" - Check "Synchronize device automatically" - Set "View" to "All Playlists" - Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device - Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.
MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel Pentium class PC or higher
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
CONNECTING AND TRANSFERRING
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
SANSA MEDIA CONVERTER
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.
To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.
-Plug in your mp3 player -Go into 'Limewire', select a song and go 'Locate file/Open Containg Folder', you should be in your folder with all your songs. or go 'My Music' and find your music files. -Either select all your songs, open them with 'Windows Media Player' and transfer them that way. -Or 'Open My Computer' then open 'Sansa e200' and drag the songs from where your songs are located [My Music] to the 'Music' folder in your Sansa e200 folder. [MyMusic] Song.mp3 >drag to> [MyComputer/Sansa] Music.
You may have to put this device in recovery mode and apply a force format file to it. If you have put songs on from Limewire or any other infamous bad source, that is prob the culprit. The sandisk website has the file you can add to the player. Recovery mode is simply: 1. put on the hold button 2. while holding the record button in, plug into computer at the same time and keep holding the record button in until you see recovery mode on the player
after you do this, you can drop the format file on the player by going to my computer and locating the 16MB icon, then drag and drop the file on the player. Once you have done this, unplug the player and take off the hold button, and it will reboot itself and format itself to the neutral state from the factory setting.
You dragged & dropped files in recovery mode?
Recovery mode is only for re-installing the firmware or formatting the device if it is unresponsive.
If you are wanting to drag and drop files onto the device, the music needs to be put into the Music folder on the device.
If you do not see the Music folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your PC.
Best of Luck.
p.s. - you can add to this question this doesnt work.
I had this same problem with my Sansa e280, I did some research and found that MTP mode is used when syncing with Windows Media Player. So if you plugged in your player under MTP and simply tried to drag and drop using Windows Explorer the player won't recognize. I have heard that you should be able to view them on the Sync tab in WMP but I personally have not tried.
The way I got rid of the songs was by going into my Sansa Settings and changing the USB mode to MSC, opening the Player by going to My Computer, then (if using Windows XP) click on Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders". Click "OK" Then Right click on the MUSIC Folder and Select "Properties" Uncheck "Read Only" and "Hidden". Unplug your Player and it will restart. Viola, no more ghosted songs.
step 1; down load songs from lime wire.
step 2; go to lime wires library, and about half way down the page there is a button called explore. click on it.
step 3; open windows media player, and click sync. a list should show up,
step 4; click on songs on shared folder, and drag to sync list.
step 5; connect sandisk, and click synk to e 250 on upper right hand corner area, and wait for sandisk to write!
hope this helped!

The problem is that this player have 2 standards for connecting to PC. One is MSC and other is MTP. Each one have different directories structure. If you put music when your player is connected as MSC, when you will conect as MTP you'll be not able to see the files uploaded previous. The same case is available when you write music files as MTP=> you can't see these files in MSC mode. So, set USB mode of your Sansa as MCS, power off, put hold switch to lock and connect to PC. You will see 3 directories: Audible, Records and Config (or something like that). See if your "invisible" music files are here. If they aren't connect as MTP. To connect as MTP: set USB mode to auto, shut down Sansa mp3 player, put hold switch to unlock and connect to PC. You will see only 2 directories now. Media and "something" (I can't remember now). Look for your "invisible" files and do what you want. MTP mode is for use with newer PC's. I advice you to use MCS mode all the time because is compatible with any PC (old or new). Good luck!
