1 Answer

Audio books e250 I downloaded a wma file. all 1 track. I can play the file but it is impossible to restart at the same place. pause does not bring me back nor will it allow me to fast forward. Is there any way to bookmark or do I need to change some setting for this type of file? I of course can not find the directions. Thanks fastestbbc

    When I shut down the Sansa e250 during audio book play it restarts at the beginning instead of where I left off. How do I get the player to start in where I left off???

Can download wma audio books on e100 but they will not play


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.

Cannot play wma audio book on mp3


Audiobooks in WMA format have a restrictive DRM-license that does not allow their use on certain types of mp3 player. To use the WMA file that you already have, you will need to use an illegal DRM-stripper such as Tunebite - but, that's illegal.

You will have to stick to audiobooks that are in mp3 format - and even then, there are a few asterisks - you may not be able to resume where you left off without fast-forwarding. But at least you will be able to play the file.

Transfer WMA files to Sansa c250


There two types of WMA file - protected and unprotected (also called "DRM-free" and "DRM-encrypted"). Some protected or encrypted WMA's may allow you to play back on your computer, but will not allow you to play those same files on an mp3 player. There are only two ways around your problem - one is expesnive, and one is illegal:
1) You can purchase additional rights on Overdrive to transfer your audiobooks to a "portable device" (by which, they include mp3 players).
2) You can download a program such as Tunebite to strip the Overdrive of it's DRM license, rendering the file of its protection (I would NOT reccomend this route).

The WMA files that you had that worked before were either unprotected, or were protected but had transfer rights.

Sansa e250 keeps saying "SYNCHRONIZE TO CONTINUE YOUR MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION"


Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really,  the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device. 
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.

Playback of audio files does not resume where I left off when powering back on


I have an e260. I use it for audiobooks a lot. I just press pause (centre top of the dial), and the track will resume from there next time (unless I go back to the main menu for radio of course.)

Can you play WMA's on Sansa Mp3 model e250?


the sansa e250 will play wma files, as per Sandisk.
The problem is you bought them from a download service so there DRM protected.
The easiest way I found to remove them is to use tunebite .
Cost is about $30 or you can find it on P2P sites or newgroups.

The down side is it takes about 14 hours to convert 5 gigs worth of music. But you can then play it on anything.

TIP: convert the files to mp3 not wma so they can be used on practically any player
