For the Sansa e200 series there's an overview link, listing all the important directions for the e250 2GB player.
Note: there are 2 e200 versions ( and a Rhapsody version), see:
Firmware determines the player version and is not interchangeable.
Firmware check: On the player, from the Main Menu > Settings > Info, the firmware can be displayed.
The minimum system requirements for the "old" computer, see the manuals, should be:
Windows SP1 with Windows Media Player 10 running for the e200v1 and
Windows SP2 with WMP10 or higher for the e200v2.

I'm not sure if the old computer supports USB devices like an external harddrive or memory stick.
When it does it's worth a try getting the player connected to the old computer.
The player must be switched to MSC mode to get connected to the computer.
Note: before disconnecting in MSC mode, always safely remove hardware (icon in the right corner of the computer screen below)
When connected In MSC mode, the computer sees the player as a removable disk / memory stick. Transfers can be made using the "drag and drop" method for normally putting data onto a drive.
- switching to MSC mode through the menu:
1. Select the Setting
item in Main Menu.
2. Select the USB mode
You can select Auto Detect or MSC mode.
3. Select MSC mode.
The manual of the e200v2 series does not give / show this option.
When not having the MSC menu function above, go through next steps for connecting the e200v2 in MSC mode.
- switching to MSC mode, using the player's buttons:
1. Turn device OFF.
2. Slide the hold switch to the direction of the headphone jack so an orange color would show putting the device on Hold
3. Press and hold the (| <<) button while connecting the device to the PC.
I hope this information gives all the support you need.
Just post a comment when needing more help.
