Make sure the file is MP3 or WMA, and not copy right protected.

Help with syncing music to my comp frm my mp3

Generally, you can move music from Windows Media Player to yur mp3 player, but not the other way around. Press the sync button, and set up a sync profile for your mp3 player - then it should recognize the songs that are on there. If that fails, I would reformat the player inside of Windows Media Player to see if that helps any.

Have fun!

Sansa player says no music but there is

It is probably because the files are not .mp3 or .wma format files. This player is not compatible with itunes's .m4a files.

Reformatting songs/mp3 player

The Sandisk site says that your dad's device should play .wav, .mp3 and .wma files. Has the player EVER worked? I got a C250 for my wife as a Christmas present and my computer recognized but refused to communicate with it UNTIL I DOWNLOADED AND INSTALLED THE FIRMWARE UPDATE. The player was a paperweight until then. It turned on and played the demo files pre-loaded on it, but I couldn't transfer a single file into it. Just a thought. Here's the link:
good luck.

I need to know how to delete songs off my mp3/sansa sandisk c250

Open "My computer", then "Sansa c250 (E:)", find properties to show hidden files and a "Music" file (which is hidden) will appear. You can erase music directly from there.

We have two laptops and one desktop in my house and two 2GB Sansa c250s. My laptop recognizes my sansa c250 differently than our family's desktop (i.e. on the desktop i can't view certain folders/ music files that i transferred from my laptop to my player). The second laptop doesn't recognize mine at all, but it DOES recognize my sister's sansa c250.
my suggestion? try a different computer! and then KEEP using that computer for adding/ deleting files.

Computer says no files on device

Open device manager under the Control Panel to view hardware and devices. There should be a tab under portable devices that recognizes the Sansa c250. If their is a yellow exclamation point, then most likely the device has stopped working. Right click on it, and uninstall the device. Unplug your Sansa, wait a couple seconds, then plug it back in. Let it do its thing. If this does not solve your problem, then you should deffinately call the manufacturer.
