Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)

1 Answer

SanDisk Series 250

The MP3 player series 250 I just purchased came with c200 manual (on disk). I find that the instructions don't seem to work. Is there any way of obtaining series c250 instructions?

    The player I just purchased came with instructions for a different model (c200). Those instructions do not work. I don' feel I should pay another fee to make it work ($9.90). It is much simpler to return it to to seller and look for different MP3 player.

    Dragging music icon to Sansa 250 icon, does not result in a copy of the music file on the MP3 player.

For deleting files connect your player with the computer.

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.

Sansa e260 will not power up


Okay what you do for this is hold down the power button for 20-25 seconds or so. This will reset your Sansa e260 and then it will power up like normal. I have had this problem before. If that doesn't work then I don't know what will.

Drivers for sansa c250


You can't plug the same mp3 player into a MAC and a PC - one erases the formatting of the other. Run the Sansa Recovery Tool for the c200 series - it is available from the Sandisk website. Also, here is a link to the full user manual:
