Sansa m250 Playlist help needed

I have a Sansa m250 MP3 player. I cannot figure out how to create playlists. I know it must be possible since there is a playlist playback option. I have no idea how to get my playlists loaded, though. I use Windows Media Player to manage my music. I've emailed Sansa directly, but never heard anything back (this was about 2 months ago). Any help would be great!

SOURCE: 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

I want to create a playlist on my SanDisk Sanso 250, but cannot figure out how. Can you help?


Sansa MP3 players have 2 modes, MTP and MSC. In order for playlist to show up properly on your player it must be in MTP mode. First, go to settings then USB mode or just mode( depending on the player). then choose MTP. Once it's in this mode, connect to you PC. Open Windows Media Player and go to the library. Right click on the song of your choice then go down to "add to" then click on additional playlist. Type the name of your songs and click ok. Right Click on the next song, click on "add to" then click on the name of you playlist. Continue this until you playlist is complete. Click on the Sync tab at the top and then click on sync settings. make sure "sync device automatically" is checked off. scroll through the large white box and only check off the playlist you want on the player. Click ok and the playlist will start to sync to the player. Once complete, disconnect the player select music then scroll down to playlist and you will see the name of your playlist...

Unable to transfer playlist to sansa c250 mp3 player


This player isn't capable of playlist transfer - you can only create a playlist on the go from the player itself. You will have to transfer individual songs only.

How to create multiple playslists for M250


Alright, well if you are adding songs to your MP3 player by using Windows Media Player, you can create playlists there, sort the songs into what playlists you want them in, right click the playlist, and click "add to sync list".

If you are manually copying and pasting the music into the mp3 player (that's how I do it) it's a little less obvious... For me there are three main folders: Music, Playlists, and RECORD. So we want to go to the playlists folder. In there, assuming you have at least one playlist already, you can copy and paste it, naming it something else and changing its properties as you see fit (right click -> properties). To add songs to the playlist, you go to it's properties, and under the references tab, drag the music files from wherever you have them stored and drop them in the references tab. This won't move your music, it'll just add them to the playlist. and.... guess that's about it. Hopefully that helped.

Can't create or play 'playlists'


Create your playlist with winamp and then copy it over with the songs listed in the playlist. You can make as many playlists as you like and they will show up under "playlist" on the screen
