Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Slow Response, Doesnt Remember Settings

Well, the title pretty much sums it up.

  • Everytime I switch between songs, there's about a 4 second wait before the new song starts.
  • Everytime I turn it on, it takes longer than it usually should.(It takes about 20 seconds, when it usually took around 8)
  • Every time I turn it on, the screen starts on the language screen, so I always have to choose a language before doing something.
  • My settings are never remembered, so I have to reset them every time I turn it on.
I can recharge it, and it usually has a long life. The problems started recently, maybe 2-3 weeks. Its been fine for about the 7 months before. It is possible it got wet. Thanks in advance, hope you can help.

Shortened Song Titles


However the song titles appear on your computer is how they will appear on the player, so check and see if the computer is shortening them, sometimes it will shorten very long titles

I Google'd a way to reset it and it says that you have to hold the power button down for like 15 seconds and then it will reset. Apparently the freezing is pretty common, buts its still an over all good Mp3 player.

How to transfer music from a cd to yp-p2 when the description of file is track1


modify the second CD by clicking on each individual song and giving it a title(It doesnt have to be the right song title you could put numbers also ex.1-13 if you wanted. just delete track in front of the numbers). That way the computer doesnt think that both of the cds are the samething

Creating Playlists on the Sansa M240

The Sansa M240 is a decent device, but if you are like many, you have not been able to create playlists. The instructions with the player and the maker’s website offer little help. Here a solution that I found on-line with some additional detail. The step by step instructions for even those with little computer savvy.

1. power up your M240 player without connecting to your computer. Scroll thru the menu to the “settings” menu. Select “USB”, deselect “auto detect” then select “MSC”. (I don’t know if this step is critical, but I picked up this suggestion from another site)

2. Power down the MP240 and using the cable supplied with your player, connect to the USB port of your computer. The display will show “MSC” when connected.

3. If you have not already done so, download the songs you want to include on your playlist from your computer to the M240. Any number of media player software packages will allow you to copy or burn your songs to a “portable media device” for this step.

4. After your songs are downloaded, on your computer, go to “My Computer” and open the "Sansa M240" icon. On the explorer task bar, select “view”> “details”. You should see several standard folders and all your songs. (Note I have used this for both .wma and .mp3 formats and have intermixed them in the playlist)

5. On your computer, open a new Notepad document and save it to your desktop.
Name it whatever you like, but it has to have “.m3u” as a file extension when you save it.
For example I named mine…. playlist1.m3u, playlist2.m3u, playlist3.m3u.

6. Next, in this newly saved notepad document, type this exactly on the very first line < #EXTM3U > without the brackets.

7. Now, find your first song in the open M240 folder, place your cursor on it, right click and select "rename". When the song title is highlighted hit control + C or "Copy" the entire title, being careful not to change anything. Now place your cursor immediately after the #EXTM3U text, hit return and paste the title of your first song directly below it with NO line space in between.


8. Repeat the steps to copy the title of your next song from the M240 folder. When copied, place your cursor immediately after the previous song title copied in the step above. Hit return Twice to create a single line space after the song title and paste in the next song title at the beginning of the line. Repeat this process til you have built your playlist.


8. After you’ve entered your last song title, it should look something like this. (Either .mp3 or .wma extensions can be used)
-----------------------------
#EXTM3U
First song.mp3

Second song.mp3

Third song.mp3

And so on.mp3
------------------------------
Now, within your notepad playlist document, click File/Save (noting where it was saved) and close the file. Now, find that same original playlist on your computer. Highlight it and copy / paste it onto your M240. I copied mine into a folder called “playlist” on the M240. Then I repeated the process for other playlists, giving each a unique name.


After allowing sufficient time for the file to copy, use the icon in the lower taskbar of your computer to “safely disconnect hardware” to unplug your player. Disconnect the USB cord, power up and your ready to enjoy your playlists.
