My mp3 player won't download my music files


What you should try is backing up your unit, if there are songs from any other source on your player
other than the one main computer you use.

Determine whether the entire load is less than 2 GB and if so, then reformat your MP3 player to make
use of space from songs which, though deleted from your player, (such deletions only decapitate the
file header) still may occupy significant disk space which is at a premium on your player.

Totally reinstall your player and then load your music onto same, leaving some headroom (some portion
of 2 GB i.e. 100 to 500 MB) on your player to allow for streaming of your music, which will enhance your
enjoyment of same.

Although it should be letting you download more than 424mb of files, there are only 2 things I can suggest:
  1. Try to open up the folder when you plug it into your computer. Search through the folders and see if there are files in there that may not be compatible with your mp3 player and therefore will not display.
  2. Check for duplicate files and that the size of the files is not misleading. I've had a problem where a certain song was displayed as being 2.56mb, I opened it on my computer before it was transfered and it was registered as 60mb because the track would continue to play for hours afterwards because of the file being inappropriately labeled at the ending point.
The fact that there is so much unused and unusable space on the mp3 is unusual, but you may have a problem also with your formatting. You DO have to leave some space in your mp3 player to leave room for the operation files of the mp3, so although it is labeled as having 2gb of space, you have to save at least a couple mb of space to let the system function. Hope this helps.

Sansa m250 2GB file adding problems


Can't create directories directly on the m250. I've got about 1000 songs loaded (already broken into subdirectories) that take up 800 MB and the device claims that it's full. (Firmware is also updated to 4.1.08A)

Music DB?


You have put too many songs on the device.

It needs some free space to create the Music Database or the Artist, Album, Song information.Generally between 6 - 10 MB for each GB of music on the device is sufficient.

If it shows up in My Computer, you can manually delete some files from the MUSIC folder.

If not, you can use the following software to erase everything and start over.





Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://rapidshare.com/files/67740173/e200fw01.00.12.exe____

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.



Best of Luck.

Please RATE my solution at the bottom.

"formatting problem"


I had a similar problem, I could upload songs, but they wouldn't play and I couldn't delete them. turned out it was cause I didn't have WMP10 installed on my PC, had an older version. the user manual states it only works with WMP10, and after I installed it (just search for windows media player 10 on the microsoft website) I was able to use the synch function in WMP10 and all the songs are playable (I'm listening to an album as I type :D)

Unable to delete files and recover unused space


This actually sounds a lot like the problem pointed out in 'can't delete songs on sansa m230', and I'll bet it's got the same solution (you can read my full explanation there, but I'll just give the gist of it here). The Sansa has two USB settings, 'Auto Detect' and 'MSC'; for some reason songs put on it through MSC aren't visible from the computer if it connects later using 'Auto Detect', and vice-versa. As such, try switching the USB setting from one to the other and see if that helps. If it doesn't then I don't know, but my guess is that it will. ^_^;
