Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

I just purchased a rock candy Wii remote I synced it and got to the home menu However I can't select anything The only button that works is the home button Thereis no little hand that shows up either How...


You say you synced it, but i do not think that it thinks the sync was ok. Read the sync instructions again, at the end of the sync it should give you an indication that it thinks the sync is complete. Do the sync again, does it give you that indication?

My Heart rate monitor for EA Sports Active 2 will not sync up.


See if your Using the heart monitor this way.
  • The heart rate monitor (the sensor with the "Heart" on it) should be placed on the outside of your left arm.
  • If you were to turn your arm like you were to look at your watch, the heart logo should be readable (not upside down).
  • The arm band should be on your forearm, and not past the elbow.
  • The lights on the left arm will be facing down, when your arms are at your sides, and the peripheral should be facing outward.
Hope this will help.

Sansa m250 playlists


First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.


To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Sansa m250 not working, need help soon


Plugging it into another computer changed the formatting of the player.. I would format the player from the menu itself, but if that fails:
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Sansa Sandisk M250


Hi XX,

Thanks for asking me to be your Tech Buddy.

For Sansa units, a couple of things you can try:
a. do a soft reset - press on the Power/Menu for 15 seconds;
b. do a full settings reset - Main Menu/Settings/Reset All;
c. do a Format - Main Menu/Settings/Format but all in the internal memory will be erased.

If for some reason your version/model do not have a format option, please refer to this solution posted by another expert, computerrep.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
