SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player with Mac? Is there any driver to make it compatible with Mac platform? Thank you


NOTE: MAC computers do NOT support MTP modes of USB conectivity in a MP player. A Sansa player in MTP mode when plugged into a MAC computer will NOT be detected or recognized. MAC computers supports Sansa players in MSC mode Sansa players can only be recognized by a MAC if the USB mode on the Sansa player is set to Auto Detect or MSC.
Check in the System Profiler Open System Profiler from the Utilities folder, which is inside the Applications folder. From the Contents column on the left, under the Hardware header, select USB; the panel to the right will show all the USB devices that the computer recognizes. It may not identify them correctly by name, but it should have the right number of devices listed. . Navigate to USB Mode settings. Sansa View - From the Main Menu, select More > Settings/Options > System Settings > USB Mode.
Sansa Fuze and Sansa Clip+ - From the Main Menu, select Settings > System Settings > USB Mode.
Sansa Clip, e200v1 series, e200v2 series and e200R - From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
2. Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC. e200R - PlayforSure is MTP and Rhapsody is MSC
See this tip posted here on this site for a better explanation on the modes - MTP and MSC. Solve your MP3 Player Connection Problem.

My Sansa m240 is saying there is no music on it when i plug it in the computer the music is really still there...what do i do?


Look for changing the USB mode of the device to MSC or MTP
Go to USB Mode settings. if you have a Sansa View - From the Main Menu, select More -> Settings/Options -> System Settings -> USB Mode.
if you have a Sansa Fuze - From the Main Menu, select Settings > System Settings > USB Mode.
if you have a Sansa Clip, e200v1 series, e200v2 series and e200R - From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC. e200R - PlayforSure is MTP and Rhapsody is MSC
NOTE: The USB mode is not selectable for Sansa View (FW 1.03.XX and below), Sansa e200v2 (FW 03.01.14 and below), and Sansa Clip (FW 1.01.11 and below). The USB Mode setting can be enabled on these players using a firmware update.

Sansa 260


this is how to do it READ EVERYTHING DONT SKIP THING

Switch your Sansa E260 to its Recovery Mode:

1. Make sure the player is powered off
2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface
3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button.
4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E260 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode"
5. Connect your E260 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above)
6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E260 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6.

Next, Apply the firmware for the E260 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time):

Step 1:
Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E260 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop":
http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1449

Step 2:
Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred.

Step 3:
When the process is complete, unplug your E260 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch

Step 4:
Power up your E260 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully.

Step 5:
Enjoy using your Sansa E260, just like I do. (I love this player)

sorry for so much writing it pays off read this to

2) On your Rhapsody device, go to "Settings" -> "Mode" then select "Rhapsody"

3) With the data cable, plug the USB connector to the USB port on the PC, verify “Connected” is shown on the e200R display

4)On the PC, Check for device “Sansa e200 (E:)” under My Computer.
NOTE: the actual drive letter might be different

5) Drag and Drop pp5022.mi4 from your PC to the root folder of E: drive.
NOTE: Do NOT drop it to “Sansa e200R Rhapsody” device which is the MicroSD card slot

6) Unplug your Rhapsody device.

7) Your Rhapsody device will restart and perform a firmware upgrade and restart again.

When done, go to main menu “Settings” -> “Info” and verify the current version number.

enjoy

DELETING VIDEOS FROM MY MP3


Below are the instructions. I hope I've made them clear enough!
Make sure your device is under MSC instead of MTP...To do that go under Menu, settings and then usb mode...
--

Step 1
Open up Windows Explorer: Start > Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer

Step 2
On the right of Windows Explorer, click on My Computer

Step 3
You should see two devices after your CDROM drive. One will be SANSA E260R and the other will be Sansa e200R Rhapsody. Chose the one on the top; the one that doesn't say Rhapsody. It may say E250R, E260R, E270R, or E280R depending on which model you have.

Step 4
Once you're viewing the device, you'll see the folders: PHOTO and VIDEO. These are the folders that contain your photos and videos. For videos, you can simply remove the video you want to delete - it will completely remove it.

I hope that helps

Music files corrupted, then disappeared


I had something similar happen to mine (corrupted music files). In Explorer right click on your F: drive, choose Properties, go to the Tools tab and then click the Check Now for error checking. Check both boxes then click Start. Once finished go back into Explorer, click on the Tools Menu, choose Folder Options, in the windows that comes up click on the View tab. In the Advanced settings section click the Show Hidden Files and Folders, then click OK. Now look at your F: drive and see what is there. There should be a MUSIC, PHOTO, PICTURES, PLAYLISTS, RECORD, SYSTEM, TMP, & VIDEO folders. Look in the MUSIC folder to see what music is in there. See it they still show up as corrupt when you turn on your Sansa. If so you may need to delete all the music files in the MUSIC folder and re-copy them to the device. Also, if you see any folders call FOUND.000 I would delete them, these will contain corrupted files that Windows found when checking the drive and are now useless too you. Hope this helps.

No more music


- As with nearly ALL sansa e250 problems, formating it will bring it back to normal. 1. Connect it to your computer. 2. Open 'My Computer' and right-click the device. 3. choose 'format...' and then 'quick format'. 4. If you haven't done so, upgrade the firmware: -Find the firmware on the Sandisk home page. Don't use the wrong one, though. If you have a Rhapsody version, choose the e200r player. Download the .zip file and extract its contents (right-click, 'extract all'). Then connect your player to your computer and drag the extracted file to your player's drive. Now when you turn your player on, it'll undergo the firmware update. You can also update your firmware by connecting to Rhapsody with your player hooked up and following the firmware update instructions when the window comes up. If the firmware update window doesn't appear, then you have the latest firmware to date. 5. Test out the player and see if this method worked. If not, you may want to send it back sandisk or return to the retailer you bought it from.
