Re: sansa error 0x80070052
0x80070052 error is fairly common with older Flash card/drives and MP3 player as they have been formatted using FAT/FAT16 which imposes a limit on the number of Files and Folders in the ROOT directory.
The solution is to use Windows Explorer:
1) Copy ALL your existing Media Player Folders and Files to your PC in a new Backup folder
2) Re-FORMAT your MP3 drive using FAT32 (do not use the quick format option to ensure a clean format)
3) Copy content of PC Backup folder back to your Media Player: your problem should now be fixed and more folders and files can now be added!
I get this and the only way to put the music on seems to be to create a new folder inside the mp3 player and put the music in there.. I'm not sure if you can play the music that's in the folder, though.

Make sure it is an mp3 file. You can always try and update your player to the latest software. You can download it free from manufacture's website under either download or suppor tab. Make sure you have the latest drivers downloaded on your pc to.
Click this link to go to the RCA support page. Under the light bulb, click "For TH1102 click here". This will download the firmware for your Pearl. Plug in your mp3 player and run the file. This will delete any songs or data currently on your mp3 player so back up your songs if you can.
You can put music on it by doing the following (assuming vista/XP environment):
Connect it to your PC using the provided USB cable. Open windows explorer and navigate to your Sansa Clip. Click through "sansa clip", "internal memory" to the "music" directory. Drag and drop MP3/wav files to this directory. Feel free to create subdirectories. Your music will be accessible after doing this. Be aware that the clip ignores your directories. It will look for artist, album, and title tags to categorize your tracks. You may have to look for your tracks in the "unknown" album directory when playing if your tracks don't have these (ID3?) tags.
You just reminded me. I took my SD card out and put it into my phone. I'll replace it in the Sansa and see what happens. So far, synching with WMP works, but still not Napster (where I do all my purchases). oh well.
I'll try putting my card back in. Maybe a DMR key was on it. Also, I may have changed the name of my player. Lookign into a couple options. Back later/another day.
Can't create directories directly on the m250. I've got about 1000 songs loaded (already broken into subdirectories) that take up 800 MB and the device claims that it's full. (Firmware is also updated to 4.1.08A)
There may be possible reasons why your Sansa E250 would display an message on the LCD even when you've downloaded files to it:
(1) The music file type is not supported by the player. Sansa players support only MP3 and WMA files. To determine what file type your have, right click on the file type and it should display the "properties" dialog box. Check if it is MP3 or WMA. For example, iTunes music files will not work with the player, nor will WAV or MIDI files.
(2) Your music files are supported but the bit rate is not within the range that the player supports. Sansa players support MP3 files up to 128 KBPS and WMA files up to 64 KBPS. You may need to use a 3rd party music file editor to convert the files to a supported bit rate
(3) You may have saved your music files in a folder and copied the folder to the player. Your Sansa E250 will not recognize folders. Either save them in the root directory or inside the "Music" folder -- your player's default folder for music files.
Hope this info helps :)
