Cant hear music


Make sure the songs are in the right format. Also, the SYS folder was the wrong folder to put the songs in. Just use Windows Media Player like the manual suggests - it will make life easier.

Sansa m250 won't finish "finalizing update"


Ummmmm.... What are you doing exactly if your trying to download the music, Download using limewire, bearshare,
Its not going to work on Itunes most of the time so just use Limewire or bearshare. Connect the Mp3 using the Usb thing and try to put it in front of the cpu or behind either 1 of them.
After you should probably get a pop up scroll down and go to view folders or whatever and open it and put the music you want in the mp3 and when yur done beside the clock look for a Safetly USB remover or whatever and disconnect it.
I hope it works
Give me some Credit
and click the Button XD

I have Sanso m250 2.0gb mobel. Logo screen is appearing when i power on after that i am unable to play the mp3 songs or play FM Radio etc..


Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:
  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer4.gif, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC4.gif Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players. You can start over with your playlists. This has worked for me.

Can not remove files from sansa


Windows Media Player is a little temperamental when it comes to music on the device.

You can manually manage the music from My Computer>Device Name (m250)>MUSIC Folder.

You can drag & drop files onto the device from here, as well as, right click and delete them.




Best of Luck.
