Re: how to get songs

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.

Re: how to get songs

You have to sync it, I know i had the same problem!
When you conect it, you should have a screen saying what action to take go to sync.
You have to put your songs in there then sync

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.

MTP or MSC mode

If you use a micro SD card, put it in MSC mode, if not, keep it on the default MTP mode.

Sansa E260- Cannot delete songs/ won't respond to modified files.

In order to sync the files with media player the device must be in MTP mode MSC mode is used for drag/drop file updating. try setting MTP and then sync it or just open the drive file in my computer in either mode to update the file list.

Sansa m250 playlists

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.

Hope this helps

Cant load songs

the best way for that is to read your manual.

Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel Pentium class PC or higher
CD-ROM drive
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
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”.
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.

Can't delete songs from the e200

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.
