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

4 Answers

The media device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected

I recently bought a refurbished Sansa c250 from Woot! It looks very nice and everything but when I open My Computer/Sansa c250/Internal Memory and try dropping a song, a "Error Copying File" pops up and says "Cannot copy [song name].mp3: The media device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected. Is this because I bought a refurbished and it's broken? Or what am i doing wrong?

I am sure my sansa is still connected.

    Same Problem too! I got the same device from Woot! It worked once but now I get that error no matter what computer I connect it too.

    I have an e260 that I also got from Woot and am having the same problem copying files. The error I got was "The device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected". After googling the problem, I tried the advice from person on a forum having the same problem. The said to try and copy the file to the Root Folder NOT the Music folder. This worked from me. I think the Music folder is somehow corrupt. You can delete the actual Music folder on the device and it will re-create itself. Just wanted to pass this on.

    I just got my Sansa View e250 from Woot.com and it's showing the same error message. I don't understand this. I will try to download to a different file and see if that helps. This sucks.

Make sure you're not using the media with another program while you attempt to copy/sync it to your device.

Pretty late response, but meh.

Ok i just now had that same problem with the song ******** by Cee Lo Green. It wouldn't download it to my Sony MP3 and that message popped up saying "Sorry but this device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected" I tried redownloading the song from a different site but that didn't work and it was in .mp3 format. So I renamed the song from 'Cee Lo Green - ********' to 'CeeLoGreen - ********' and it downloaded it with no problem. So here's my anwser: try changing the name of the download file, like take out the spaces in the name, and see what it does. It worked for me so I hope it works for you. I hope I helped and I'm sorry if it doesn't work for you I just thought I'd share what I found :)

    Ok so I just had this problem with downloading the song ******** by Cee Lo Green. Whenever I tried to download it to my Sony MP3 a message popped up each time saying "Sorry but the device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected" which neither problem had happened because I was able to download other songs from playlist onto it at the same moment. So I tried redownloading the song from another website to see if that worked and it still wouldn't copy. It was in .mp3 format so I didn't know what else to do so I tried renaming the file. I changed it from "Cee Lo Green - ********" to "CeeLoGreen - ********" and it downloaded straight to my MP3 with no problem. I'm not positive that this will work for you but try renaming the file that you're trying to download (ex: take out the spaces) and see if that works. I hope this helped and if it doesn't I'm sorry and I hope you find another way to fix your problem

Successfully downloading music onto Sansa c250


Here is a link to the manual:
http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/user-guides/c200-ug-eng.pdf

If you are certain that all of the files are in mp3 format, then your best bet would be to change the USB Mode of the player - if it is in MSC Mode, chnge it to MTP Mode and vice versa - instructions for doing this are in the manual.

Music not synchronized


Try going to the actual file the music is in on your computer, then right click Send To sansa 250. If that doesn't work look on the options menu for USB mode and change it, that works on my 280.

Can't disconnect


instead of dragging and dropping, try moving or copying the files to your player.
other wise i would say just to turn off your comp or player.
hope this helps!

Sansa c250 vista


All right guys, let me teach you a trick involving this MP3. While it is off turn hold on and hold the back button on the face. (Left button of the square) While holding it plug it in and Vista or any other computer will recognize it as a removable drive like a flash drive so to speak. From there make sure it says its connected on the Sansa and then drag and drop what you like in the recommended place. ^_^ Have fun!
