You will most likely need to do all your renaming inside of iTunes. This will save you a lot of frustration in the long run.

    Are you using a PC or a Mac? On a PC you can right-click the song, then choose "info".
    You will get a window that lets you set all track information.

How to download music onto mp3player


All you need is to connect the player to the PC and see if the player is detected . Now the drive will be seen on the PC and the required media files can be downloaded or copied to the player. For some players a media converter is needed like the apple iPod where iTunes must be downloaded and converted , Similarly for Philips the media converter must be used as the player might not read some unknown files and can hang the player.

My display says unknown format


the music you put on the player is not supported, this unit only supports MP3 or unprotected Windows Media Audio files. You can check this by right clicking the song > properties > Type of File : (make sure mp3 or unprotected WMA), if its WMA, make sure there is no license tab. My guess is your using ITUNES.. you would need to convert to MP3.

When trying to play music the display shows "Unknown Format"


Only MP3 and unprotected WMA files re supported. If you upload copy protected WMA files or any of the iTunes AAC formated songs, they will not play. All purchases from the iTunes store have to be converted to MP3 before they can be played on this player.

Also, some older MP3 players will not be able to play MP3 audio encoded at high bitrates.

"Unknown" listed in spots for songs in player's list of all songs


It's the id3 tag information that hasn't been filled out, most likely.   (id3? Hmmm)
Anyhow, depending on the operating system you use and the program you use for your music, it's easy to change.
If iTunes, just import the song into itunes, and "edit Info" and change all the song information. In Windows I believe you can do it in WMP, or by right-clicking the file.
Alot of the time a song just has the info in the filename, but mp3 players use the id3 tag to identify a song.

SanDisk Sansa C250 - How do I rename songs?


You can go to the file directly and rename it if Windows Media Player wont allow it.

The file should be located in the My Music Folder.

Right Click on the track and select Properties>Summary Tab. Then you can edit any of the fields you want.

The next time you open Windows Media Player, the changes will be there.




Best of Luck.

Unknown songs and artists


You will have to take them off the player,
rip your cd with media player, then BEFORE you sync them to the player, rightclick on the song, choose Advance Tag Editor and rename the song, artist, genre, then you can sync them over with title and name locked in the file.
