    When I plug in my sansa, nothing happens except my pc recognizes new hardware. I go to windows media player where my music is but it will only let me burn to a cd. When I clikc burn to a device, it says it is not able to. What am I doing wrong? How can I copy my files from my windows media player to my sansa mp3 player with windows xp?

    I've reinstalled factory settings and to load Windows Media Player 11 I have to install over 500meg of updates from windows updater which takes a lifetime on a dialup connection. I'm beginning to dislike the hoop jumping Microsoft inflicts on simple problems. I'll try solution 3 below but I Feel all your pain out there.

Win XP does not need an addl driver - it should just plug and play; check Sansa's driver page as a precaution:

    Sorry - they are always changing that link - this is the 3rd time I've had to change it. Here is some good preliminary info:

    The most common reason for this problem is not
    having the latest Windows Media Player installed, or having a Windows
    OS version that is not supported by the Sansa player.

    The Sansa
    players support Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista and above. If your
    operating system version is supported by the Sansa player, there are 4
    solutions you can try:

    SOLUTION 1 – Download and install the latest Windows Media Player

    SOLUTION 2 – If you're running Windows Vista, apply the following hotfix - KB940199

    SOLUTION 3 – Download and Install the MTP Porting Kit

    SOLUTION 4 – Try connecting the device to the PC using MSC mode
    View/c200: Turn on & press and hold the rewind button while connecting to the PC
    Fuze/e200: Go to Settings > System Settings > USB Mode & select MSC
    Clip: Go to Settings > USB mode & select MSC

Sansa m250 playlists


First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.


To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Delete music


when you plug it to usb cord and the computer then you can "reformat" that is the only way to remove music...you need a computer, don't use Vista it is not compatible with anything yet...
use windows xp and when you plug in your mp3 player m250 it will ask you which program to choose from to open your files on the mp3 disk...its easy...

Cant hear music


Make sure the songs are in the right format. Also, the SYS folder was the wrong folder to put the songs in. Just use Windows Media Player like the manual suggests - it will make life easier.

Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:
  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second and then reinstalling the battery without pushing any further buttons.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer4.gif, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC4.gif Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. This solution has worked for me.
I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players.

I dont know what the problem is


Hi I am not an expert by any means, but when I had issues with my M250, I went to the Sansa site and downloaded the latest firmware onto the M250 and my problems disappeared. Good luck
