I turn my player on and hit folder to open up my songs and nothing is coming up it just goes back to folder it was working a few hours ago i finished listening to a song then it stopped working i thin


You'll need to check that the files in the folder are MP3 or WMA (Windows Media files). Unfortunately, no other file types are supported so you will need to avoid iTunes and use Windows Media Player or similar to manage your library and the Eclipse.

Plug it into a USB port on your computer. If it doesn't open on the screen, click Start, click Computer and locate your devise on the list of drives and discs, right click on the devise name then left click Open on the drop-down menu. The device files should display. You can then drag and drop any music files to any folder on your PC, normally your Music or My Music folder.

How to download music to my philips 8GB mp3 player


Try going to my computer and then opening one of the removable drives. There should be a "music" folder in there and you can just drag and drop your music onto it. If this doesn't work you should be able to use Windows Medis Player to sync the music to your mp3 player.

I deleted the music folder and nt able to play the songs in mp3


When I had the same accident this is what worked for me. I disconnected my sandisk player from my computer. After waiting until the sandisk software completed it's termination programming, I re-connected it to the computer.

Because I use Microsoft Windows XP, a window pops up asking if I want to open the device in Windows Explorer. Answering "yes" and then selecting the "Folders" from the tabs at the top of the window will display the sandisk along the left column as "Sansa e250". By double clicking on the folder labeled "PPI NAND" a drop down list of subdirectory folders should be displayed. If the folder "MUSIC" is not there, you will need to create a new folder and label it "MUSIC".

Here is how to create a new folder.
With the folder "PPI NAND" highlighted, move the cursor up to the upper right hand corner of the "Windows Explorer" window and select the tab "File". From the drop down menu select " New Folder ". This should cause a folder to appear in the window to the right of the "Sansa e250" window. The new folder should be highlighted and labeled "New Folder". Select the "New Folder" and rename it "MUSIC". When renamed, select the PPI NAND folder and the new folder "Music" should be listed as one of the folder in the subdirectory. If so, you can select it to see if the Music folder contains and music files. If not, you will need to copy or drag your files into the new "MUSIC' folder.

Once I did all of this and disconnected my sandisk player, the player and let the software complete the programming work before shutting it off, it worked fine. My original problem was caused by shutting my sandisk player off after disconnecting it from the computer before the sandisk software completed its work.

Hope this helps.

T30 always comes up with record-ready display screen


T30 defaults to an opening display screen based on where you were when you last used the device. When leaving from the record folder and record mode, you will always open with the record-ready screen. If you left your T30 while in the music folder playing a music file, you will be returned to that.

This record-ready display screen has a numeric and bar time line. The numeric values of the line are in hrs:min:seconds. This line is also split: the right half of the line indicates the total amount of available recording time, while the left half indicates your time as you record. If you compare the values of the right and left sides of the numeric bar while you are recording, you will see that the right side is diminishing as the left side increases in numeric value. When you complete your recording and save your track, the right side will now indicate the new total time (the amount your screen first displayed LESS the time value of the track just recorded).

When you are playing a music file, if you watch the time display, you will see the numeric information changing in the same way. The left side indicates how may hrs:min:seconds your track has played while the right side indicates the total time value for that file and will be correspondingly decreasing while you play your music file.

So in the short, you don't need to worry much about your display screen unless you open in the wrong folder or you need more recording time than is available. Then it has a message for you.

Bad music


The minimum requirements of your Sansa E250 is Windows XP and above and Windows Media Player 10 and above.

If you're using Windows Media Player 10 or above, your Sansa E250 and its contents should appear on the right pane when you click on the "Sync" tab. You can right click on a song and select "Remove". The songs will be erased permanently from the player.

If your songs do not appear on Windows Media Player 10 or above, it is possible that your songs may have been saved on another mode.

Your Sansa E250 comes in 2 modes: MTP and MSC. Songs saved on one mode will not be seen by the other mode, and vice versa.

There are 2 ways to delete songs from your Sansa :
By browsing the folders containing the songs, or by formatting the player.

You can switch modes by navigating your device menu using the following:

Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode

Next, plug your player in your PC and open Windows Explorer. You should first set your Explorer to "Show hidden Files and Folders" by going to the "Tools" menu (located on menu lists on Windows Explorer window), then choosing "Folder Options", then enabling the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Sansa icon in Explorer as a "Portable Audio Device". Double left-click this icon to browse the player.
2. You'll find a "PPI NAND" sub-folder. Again, double left-click on this sub-folder.
3. You'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it.
4. Your music should appear as individual files or folders. Delete this to remove the file(s) from the player

Deleting Music files under MTP Mode:

1. Your player should appear as a Drive letter and entitled either as a "Removable Drive" or as "Sansa "
2. Double left-click on this drive letter to browse the player
3. You may find your music files immediately on this folder, or you'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it and view your music files.
4. Delete the music files you want, and they should be removed from the player

Deleting files through Format:

1. Formatting the player erases all files in the player, and oftentimes this is the best option to ensure that all files are removed and any corruption eliminated. Also, it is best to format the player when in MSC mode.
2. When the appears as a drive letter (under MSC mode), right-click on that drive letter and select "Format". On the "Format" pop-up window, click "Start" to begin the format process.
3. Follow the on-screen prompts and safely remove the player from your PC when the "Format Complete" display appears.
4. Unplug the player from the PC and when the player is powered up, the message "No Files" should appear on the player's LCD screen
5. Switch the mode back to "MTP", or continue to use "MSC". Note: It is best to use "MTP" when you are transferring subscription music to the player.

I hope this helps. :)

I Dont know how to insert music into my player


I usually copy all my stuff to the root directory (the one that comes right after you clicked on the sansa icon in MY COMPUTER). If it still doesn't work maybe your USB port is damaged try the other one. Another option which I always recommend is to format the sansa by right clicking on its icon on MY COMPUTER and choosing Format. Let me know if it helped.

Rio pearl directory corrupted


first, and this is always good: If available, firmware for the Rio Carbon can be downloaded online. Second, this might be the problem: The Rio Carbon communicates with your computer differently in MTP mode than it does in MSC mode. When in MTP mode, the Rio Carbon cannot display hidden files in folders, cannot allow transfers to the root Rio Carbon directory, and cannot allow the creation of new folders. (Folders can be transferred to the Rio Carbon using drag-and-drop and copy-and-paste methods.) To use traditional folder options, change the Transfer Mode settings to put the Rio Carbon in MSC mode. Last, "..Removing the Rio Carbon from a USB connection before Idle is displayed on the screen may result in a corrupting the player's file system. If for any reason you suspect that your Rio player's file system has been corrupted, reformatting the player will restore the file system to its original state..."
