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.
Yes ther is. You have to copy the files on the card in the order you want them in the playlist. I mean the reverse order.
Here is an example: you have 5 songs: a,b,c,d,e. You want them in the playlist like this: a,b,c,d,e. First you have to put e, after d, c, b and a.
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.
[Extra Hardwares Needed]
1. MicroSD card
2. "Micro-B" USB data cable
[Procedure - either PC or Mac]
1. Disconnect USB cable (if you connected already)
2. In Xenon phone
Settings -> More -> Connection -> USB Connection
-> (select) Mass Storage
Note: If you don't do this, you will get an error message
"Unable to use liscense. TRy again after formatting memory card."
3. Insert MicroSD card into Xenon phone slot
4. Connect Xenon phone to PC (or Mac) using USB cable
5. If MicroSD is not accessible as a disk drive, then
(1) remove the MicroSD from Xenon
(2) format the MicroSD from PC
(3) retry step# 3 & 4
6. You can drag & drop your folders and/or files (.mp3 or .m4a only)
into the MicroSD card
7. Disconnect Xenon phone from PC then go to "AT&T Music" -> "Music Player"
Note: All features work except for "Playlists"
8. If you want "Playlists", you need to use Windows Media Player and sync.
iTunes doesn't work since it doesn't allow other devices than iPod.
This means that you cannot use Mac to create/sync the playlist.
your music is stored on your sd card? always make sure you turn off your phone when you insert or remove the card so as to not damage the card. To listen to music, you go to your media center, choose 1. music & Tones, then 4. My music and then pick a category ( Genre, Artists, Albums, Songs, Playlists, Inbox, Play all, shuffle)
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.
If your music files are in a folder you cannot add them to play list, but if you have all your songs singly you can add them to your playlist, I had the same problem tonight with this phone, we added them individually no problem, this has worked but is a lenthly prosses, so far so good, not had a play about with them other than this, still to get them back as an album not yet done, Jackie
Any problems ring virgin, they were very helpful, SGH-J600 User guide not explained very well
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.
