Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Album info I use Windows Media Player to sync songs onto my Sansa. I always have something written in the album column but sometimes this won't transfer to the Sansa and sometimes it will so when I go to the Album menu, several different albums will show up in one place called "unknown artist." I can't figure out why sometimes it will transfer the album info and sometimes it won't.

How can I upload album art onto a philips gogear vibe for all my artists? I have album art inside my folders and i had itunes embed the art into the files when i uploaded them; however the art only shows...


There are 3 possible ways in getting the album art for your music album.
  1. Album art may be obtained from the online Music CD database that Windows Media Player uses.
    Note: Not all music albums have album art available in the online CD database.
  2. From the online music store where you purchased your songs or albums, the album art may be downloaded along with your purchase.
  3. You may also create your own album art by transferring your favorite jpg photo into the selected album folder and rename it to Album Art.jpg.
To download album art from the online database and transfer to the player.
  1. Make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Launch Windows Media Player.
  3. Go to Tools> Options> Player.
  4. Make sure the "Enable picture support for devices" check box is selected.
  5. Click the Apply, then the OK buttons.
  6. Select the "RIP" tab on the task menu bar.
  7. Insert your music CD into the CD drive of your computer. The Windows Media Player will take a few seconds to show the content of the CD on the display.
  8. Click "Find Album Info". The Player accesses the database hosted by WindowsMedia.com and displays information about the album in the Album Information pane. The album art will be shown if available.(Note: For some music CD, album art may not be found in any of the online database.)
  9. Click Finish to update all the information about your album and show it in the Rip pane.
  10. Connect your Device to the computer.
  11. Select the tracks that you would like to rip by clicking in the check b ox next to the track.
  12. Click the Rip music button to start ripping the music CD.
  13. Once the tracks are finished being ripped to the library, go to the Media library and select the songs that you have just ripped.
  14. Add them to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  15. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  16. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.

To create your own album art and transfer it to the Device
  1. In Windows Media Player , right click on the song you want to update the album art of.
  2. Select "Advanced Tag Editor" option.
  3. In the screen that pops up , select the "Pictures" tab.
  4. Use the drop down list to make sure that the type of picture you add is the Cover (front).
  5. Click on "Add" to associate a picture as the Album art for the song and all the songs in that album.
  6. Add this (and other songs from the same album) to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  7. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  8. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.
You can also click on this link to show the graphical steps on how to upload/add album art on your songs.

  1. Insert the CD into the computer.

Problem with my ripped music


I clearly understand your problem.....the best way to sort it would be to create a new music folder...put all album folders separately in this new folder....rename songs in the respective albums folder and then sync this folder to your player....try with a couple of songs first...if it works you can change your entire library as mentioned above....a difficult job...but helps manage your music better..:)

Album Art not showing up on player


Connect mp3 player to computer
Open Windows Media Player
Go to Sync tab
A list of the songs on your mp3 player should show up
Right click the songs, and go to advanced tag editor - change the album art for each song

One more thing to keep in mind for the Sansa e200 series:
For correct Album Work functionality, the album art and associated music file may
need to be located in the same folder. See preloaded content as an example.

Album art not loading


I not entirely 100% sure, but the album art is only supported with WMA, as the album art image is embedded inside of the wma files themselves and not stored separately on the mp3 player.

There is no album art appearing


If it was never associated with the music when you downloaded the music, then there is nothing to show and therefore, wont show.

How do I create my own "Albums" on Sansa E250, Windows Media Player


I'd say try going into properties of the file your are trying to transfer into your MP3. Highlight all of the songs you want on the same album. You will then need to right click on them to go into the properties menu. Once you are there go to the Summary Tab, you will need to enter under "Album Title", the same title for all of the music you want to group. This should then in turn create an album with all of your favorite songs on your MP3 player. Good luck!
