There are a few ways you can can transfer songs. Use a medias player program such as Windows media player or you can manually drag and drop. Songs should be in 1 of 2 formats. WMA or MP3.
To do a manual drag and drop first locate you music on your computer. next goto my compure (win xp) find your unit right click and open in seperate window. click internal storage and select from you music folder what you want and drag and drop.
Last option is locate the music you want right click and select send-to and then your unit or the drive letter it shows up as. this in most cases will place it on your unit and in the proper folder.

The songs need to be formatted for a sansa. Use Windows Media Player 11. Don't use Rhapsody, too many problems.
Load a CD into your computer, on the Toolbar of WMP11 click rip, After all songs are ripped, hook up your Sansa to the computer via USB cable, Click Sync. WMP11 will not only sync the sansa it will sync the micro card also. You have your choice where you want to put the music. Drag and drop the music in the box to the left where you synced your sansa and at the bottom of the box click Sync. All music will be synced to your sansa or card which ever one you chose. Understand, when the sansa starts up, the card syncs with the sansa, you don't have to do anything. Try this and let me know how it works.

When i try to upload music to my sansa e260, the rhapsody tells me that there a general error with the song (error 80070570). What's that supost to mean?


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

    When on click on my sansa e260 in Rhapsody I see


    Try the following method to see what is on your Sansa e260

    Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
    Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
    When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
    Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.

    If you want to delete some or all of the files do the following:
    Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"
    Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
    Good Luck,
    I hope this helps

    Player stopped working with rhapsody


    Uh, I had a similar problem which was extremely difficult to solve. What you want to do is reformat your entire MP3 player. YOU WILL LOSE ALL THE MUSIC ON YOUR SANSA. But you can simply resynch it.

    Won't let me play my music files


    Do you have a subscription with Rhapsody or Napster?

    If so, you need to log in for them to update your account, which will solve it.

    If not, did you use your own music from CD's? Did you use Windows Media Player to copy the music to the computer? Did you change the default settings in Windows Media Player?

    If so, the default settings for WMP are to "copy protect my music", which will give you this error. You will need to change the RIP Music settings in WMP. Tools>Options> un-check the copy protect my music option.

    Finally, if you have the "Rhapsody" version, there is pre-loaded music on it that if not deleted, will cause this problem. You can format the device to remove the pre-loaded music, or manually delete it from the System folder.

    Please add to the question if that didnt work.


    Best of Luck.

    Synchronizing


    If you have a subscription with Rhapsody, or Yahoo. You need to re-connect and sign-in to your account, on-line to verify that your account is still active.

    If you do not have a subscription with either, you have one of the following scenarios;

    1) You have pre-loaded content that needs to be deleted

    2) You copied Cd's to your computer with Windows Media Player and did change the default settings, therefore, your music is protected and gives you the same error.

    I have answered both of these scenarios previously, just search my answers to find your answer(s).



    Best of Luck.

    Sansa e260 won't let me download certain music


    If you used Windows Media Player to "rip" (copy) the music to your computer. The default settings are to "copy protect my music" if you didnt change this setting, the Sansa will want a "license" to go with it. Resolution, change the setting in Windows Media Player, Tools>Options>Rip Music (uncheck copy protect my music). You can also change the default rip setting to Mp3, as opposed to Windows Media Audio. Then you would have to re-rip the tracks to your PC, as unprotected. Make sure you delete the old tracks from the device, otherwise, it will always give you that error message. Best of Luck.
