I was going nuts trying to do the SD card music and playlists, so thanks to everyone for their help! I now have mastered adding, editing, and deleting both music files and playlists. I do find something I can't quite figure out. I sync entire playlists to the 2gb SD card in my player (and yes, it is slow as Christmas refreshing and booting up), but the player never sees the playlists. Neither do I see a folder called "PLAYLISTS" on the SD card (I use Windows Media Player and only see a "MUSIC" folder and a WMPINFO.xml document. The playlists are not present on the actual 4gb player either. Can anyone give me some info on this?
Sansa Playlister does work. But there is another program that I like better. Download it here http://www.infosys.tuwien.ac.at/Staff/cp/playlist_creator.zip You copy this small program to the root directory of your Sansa and and execute it within windows. It creates playlists based on the directory structure of MP3's you have on your Sansa player and the microSD card. Subdirectories containing MP3's must be in the MUSIC directory of either your Sansa or microSD card.
I have found our solution I think. It works for me, but I don't know how it will handle Napster files. Give it a try though. It's called Sansa Playlister. I am using it now and it works perfectly and sees both the player and the SD card. The link is: http://hcware.110mb.com/sansa/. Give it a shot and let me know if it works for you as well.
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.

The Sansa e250 works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While microSDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the e250.
microSD cards max out at 2GB in size, but you can put your music on several of them and swap them in and out. It's not as convenient as having them all on one card, but that's the best you can do with the e250.
Some later models such as the Fuze will accept microSDHC cards.
Check the version of the player:
Go to Settings > System Info.
Information for the firmware version and SD cards support: For 01.xx.xx firmware (c200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards For 03.xx.xx firmware (c200 version 2) - up to 4GB microSDHC cards Note: Firmware is not interchangeable.
For deleting files connect your player with the computer. When running Windows Media Player 11:
1. Check the automatic SYNC routine for your player. How to get to the SET UP SYNC When viewing WMP11 in full mode select SYNC or LIBRARY in the top of WMP11, seeing the Sansa player listed on the left. Right click on the player and select SET UP SYNC...to go to the SYNC options.
When "Sync this device automatically" is selected, all playlist in the computers' Library will be transferred to the player again, even the previous deleted files. Disable this function to prevent unwanted SYNC.
2. Remove playlists from the library in set up sync, to get the playlists you would like to keep on the player.
select a song and hold the centre button until the title flashes. Then choose the other sings you want to add then choose music then playlists and then On-The-Go to view your song list then save playlist to save the list. Hope this helps
I expected to find the new playlists on the SD card as a separate file to access and play. Instead the SD card songs show on up the Sansa menu simply added among the existing songs / artists stored in the Sansa. Its not a solution but they are there. Since using the SD card, my Sansa does databse refresh everytime it starts, whether SD card is in it or not.
Have solved this problem on GoGear syncing with WMP 11 by going to options on the device itself, then go to the "settings" option, scroll down to "PC Connection Preferences", from here you will select the check box saying "MTP" then back out of options and connect your device and go back to your WMP 11 and drag your playlists to the syncing area and resync your device. You should then be able to see your playlists under the playlist option in music along with the "playlist on the go" playlist.
yes you can create playlist using WMP11...
To create playlist using WMP
1. Click the Library tab. If you need to clear the List pane before beginning to create your playlist, click the Clear List pane button .
Drag items from the Details pane to the List pane to add them to the new playlist.
To select multiple adjacent items, press and hold the SHIFT key while selecting. To select nonadjacent items, press and hold the CTRL key while selecting.
To rearrange items, drag them up or down in the List pane.
To save the list, click Save Playlist at the bottom of the List pane, and then type a name for the playlist.
By default, playlists are saved with a .wpl extension in the Playlists folder, which is usually located in the Music folder. You can also save playlists with the .m3u or .asx extension. To do so, click the List button at the top of the List pane, click Save Playlist As, and then change the extension in the Save As dialog box. Once you save the playlist, it's added to the Playlists category in the library.
To play the playlist in the List pane, click the Play button .
To access the playlist in the future, click the Playlists view in the Navigation pane.
I hope that helps

The Sansa m200 series can only create playlists in MTP mode. on the menu go to settings>USB. There are two options MSC and autodetect. Once in autodetect your sansa should say MTP when connected to your PC. In this mode you should be able to add playlists without any trouble.
Hope it helps
Alright, well if you are adding songs to your MP3 player by using Windows Media Player, you can create playlists there, sort the songs into what playlists you want them in, right click the playlist, and click "add to sync list".
If you are manually copying and pasting the music into the mp3 player (that's how I do it) it's a little less obvious... For me there are three main folders: Music, Playlists, and RECORD. So we want to go to the playlists folder. In there, assuming you have at least one playlist already, you can copy and paste it, naming it something else and changing its properties as you see fit (right click -> properties). To add songs to the playlist, you go to it's properties, and under the references tab, drag the music files from wherever you have them stored and drop them in the references tab. This won't move your music, it'll just add them to the playlist. and.... guess that's about it. Hopefully that helped.
I got this from:http://www.livedigitally.com/2005/06/27/sandisk-sansa-e130-the-micro-version-of-the-ipod-mini/
Create two playlists with names such as
1. SANSA Internal and
2. SANSA 2GB (assuming your SD card is 2gb).
Load songs into each playlist.
Edit the sync properties for each drive to only sycn to those playlists.
