Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Rather Frustrating I turned my e250 on a few days ago to use it and more than half of the songs were named as unknown. the ones that showed the titles of the songs were somehow showing and playing multiple times. I tried removing all of the files and reloading them, but it did the same thing The day before this it was working perfectly fine, and hadn't been dropped or anything like that.

Are the song still playing? If not (or even if yes), you just need to re-sync the songs or music. What are you using to sync it? You can use Windows Media Player. It works Great! Here is a link to the handbook for instructions on how to use it with media player - download the manual. Also, NOTE: you may have to change your Windows Media Player options under Tools/Options/Library Tab and ensure that the "retrieve additional information from the internet" is checked as well as the "overwrite all media information" radio button (at least for this time around so that the info will resave and load on your music files). Good Luck!

E250 'unknown' problem


This player also has a known problem of occasionally losing the information for some songs. Random occurrence. It'll lose some of the ID3 tags of some songs.

Problem with my ripped music


I clearly understand your problem.....the best way to sort it would be to create a new music folder...put all album folders separately in this new folder....rename songs in the respective albums folder and then sync this folder to your player....try with a couple of songs first...if it works you can change your entire library as mentioned above....a difficult job...but helps manage your music better..:)

Some songs read 'unknown'


you need to make shure does songs end in .mp3 with lowercase letters for the song title its just a encryption problem!

rename all the songs after download from the net then put them in the mp3 player ! its not recognising the letters from the original persone who wrote the titles

Unknown songs and artists


You will have to take them off the player,
rip your cd with media player, then BEFORE you sync them to the player, rightclick on the song, choose Advance Tag Editor and rename the song, artist, genre, then you can sync them over with title and name locked in the file.

Song is "Unknown"


If your using Windows XP right click on the MP3 and select properties. Then click on the Summary tab and select Advance. From here you will see a list of labels for your MP3 such as artist, title, year. album, genre and etc... When you edit it from here it should show on your Sansa. I hope this helps :-D!
