    I've had my e370 for over a year, it works great in Windows but not Mac.  Sandisk DOES NOT publish a Mac driver.  It should work in MSC mode independent of the OS (USB storage; instead of MTP), however it does not do either on the Mac.

    What Mac OS are you using?

Disregard my last.  I plugged it into my Mac, nothing happened, as usual.  I waited 15 mins or so and it mounted the drive!  I haven't determined if I'll have to wait that long every time.  Again, this is MSC mode (MainMenu/Settings/USBMode).  But now drag-and-drop works just fine.  Also, see freeware "SyncTunes" at http://www.nesfield.co.uk/synctunes/

SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player with Mac? Is there any driver to make it compatible with Mac platform? Thank you


NOTE: MAC computers do NOT support MTP modes of USB conectivity in a MP player. A Sansa player in MTP mode when plugged into a MAC computer will NOT be detected or recognized. MAC computers supports Sansa players in MSC mode Sansa players can only be recognized by a MAC if the USB mode on the Sansa player is set to Auto Detect or MSC.
Check in the System Profiler Open System Profiler from the Utilities folder, which is inside the Applications folder. From the Contents column on the left, under the Hardware header, select USB; the panel to the right will show all the USB devices that the computer recognizes. It may not identify them correctly by name, but it should have the right number of devices listed. . Navigate to USB Mode settings. Sansa View - From the Main Menu, select More > Settings/Options > System Settings > USB Mode.
Sansa Fuze and Sansa Clip+ - From the Main Menu, select Settings > System Settings > USB Mode.
Sansa Clip, e200v1 series, e200v2 series and e200R - From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
2. Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC. e200R - PlayforSure is MTP and Rhapsody is MSC
See this tip posted here on this site for a better explanation on the modes - MTP and MSC. Solve your MP3 Player Connection Problem.

"Not enough space for music DB. Please free up 30 MB"


The mp3 manufacturers are often being disingenuous - they plug an mp3 player into a Macintosh, and it shows up, so they say, "Hey! It's Mac-compatilbe!" But, the software is certainly not Mac-compatible, so if you ever experience a problem, there is no way to fix it. Also, the Sansa e200 series does not recognize iTunes format.

In general, I would agree that you need to reformat your player, but I have no idea how to do that on a Mac (I'm good at a lot of things, but I'm Mac-illiterate).

How do I delete single songs from a sandisk sansa e250 without deleting all songs on the mp3 player?


If you have a computer or know a friend with one then you can connect to a computer. If you are using the Windows operating system open Windows Media Player. In the library you should see your MP3 player and can click on it and it will show all of your music that you can edit any way you want.
If you are using a USB connection you canjust click on the Sync tab and the edit your music.

Cannot delete the songs on mp3


I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'

TO DELETE
1)Plug in
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else
