Normal 0 The answer isn’t as simple as the process because, the SanDisk has two different options for transferring music from a computer, MTP (default mode) or MSC. I’m not going to go into the detailed description of what those acronyms stand for since that would require PMP protocol 101 and I don’t think you came here for a class.

So, for the purpose of answering your question as well as for the sake of brevity, I’m going to assume that you have a model e2xx series unit, and you want to get the music onto your player as easily and quickly as possible right? If my assumptions are correct then follow below.

Your unit defaults to MTP (Media Transfer Protocol), which requires SanDisk software media manager or Windows Media Player 10 or higher and forces you to be familiar with either application just mentioned. We are going to bypass this for simplicity of use.

We need to switch your unit to use MSC mode, which in essence allows you to connect your SanDisk via USB, use Windows Explorer to drag and drop files to folders you create on the player.

Process 1: Steps

  1. Open Windows Explorer to where you can see all your drives are listed and make a mental note of the drives currently shown. (Player is NOT connected yet)
  2. Turn your player OFF.
  3. Slide the HOLD switch in the direction of the headphone jack so an orange color shows the device on HOLD.
  4. Press and hold the ( |
  5. Wait 5-10 seconds then check for a new drive (device) listing in Windows Explorer and you should now see your player appear.
  6. Explore the unit, create folders where needed and copy music (mp3’s).
  7. Perform a safe disconnect of your player from USB devices.
  8. Wait for player to finish updating (will display on the screen).
  9. Browse your music and enjoy!

If you prefer to use MSC (default) mode, use Windows Media Player 10 or higher and “sync” your playlist with your player or download the current version of SanDisk Media Manager.

Note: Should you decide to use MSC (default) mode, there is a possibility you will have to update the firmware on your player to ensure the player works with the software required. That's a totally different scenario that isn't comfortable with some users so proceed with caution on firmware updates and always read the Sansa support site before doing this.

    Sorry about the way this read as I copied it from Word and apparently some of the characters don't translate here.

    Line 4 is important and should have read:

HOW CAN I DOWNLOAD MUSIC FROM CDS ON MY SANSA MP3 PLAYER? LISA


To put music on your Sansa e250 you will do this: Download Windows Media Player 9 or 10 to your computer. I would use Media Player 10 as it is the newer player. After you download Media Player 9 or 10 open it up on your computer, and then hook up your mp3 player, it should be recognized by Media Player and then you can transfer the songs to it. You need to put the music cd in your computer cd player and download the songs to Media Playeer using Windows Media Player 9 or 10. I have also included a website where you can download the user manual, it will say e200, but the instructions are also for the e250. Good Luck, I hope this helps. Please rate me, Thank You. http://mp3support.sandisk.com/downloads/um/sansa-m200-um.pdf

Someone gave me there Sansa Fuze mp3player but they didn't have the instruction booklet. I'm trying to find out how I download things to the mp3 player


You need a USB cable which you need to connect to your computer. This cable also serves as a charger. You will probably need to load(rip) the music from a CD to your computer into a program called Windows Media Player. Then you will use this program (Windows Media Player) to "sync" your MP3 player to the computer from which you can download music to your MP3 player. denparis39@centurytel.net
