My e250 mp3 player doesn't allow me to load anything

Hi,
when i plug my sansa, the cpu recognizes it, when i go into the folder, it shows me one "drive" inside it called "TONANDO". in this folder there is nothing but the "record" folder.
when i try to upload files to my sansa, or create a new folder, it shows me an error message saying that the device isn't responding or has been unplugged. how can i solve this?

What I would recommend you to do is to make sure that your device is under MTP mode instead of MSC...to do that go under menu,setting, usb and then there should the two mode listed there...then you want to plug your device in the back of your computer..not in the front..tghat is very important....once you do that..open up your windows media player...click on your start thee sync panel..if your device is recognize properly it will be showing there on the right side..and if its not listed properly, it will say connect a device..if thats the case..click on your start menu right click on computer and then click on propetties, click under hardware and then device manager..your device should be showing there...check under disk drives to see if your device is showing there and if it doesnt you want to right click and hit uninstall...we dont want your device to be under disk drive ..we want it to be under windows portable device...once you uninstall it...go to http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/index.asp and find the driver for your device..and then connecct the device on the back of your computer...it should work properly..if you are still having any problems..let me know..i would be more than happy to assist you..

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.

Sansa E280 isn't recognized by Vista


I have a e250 and it works great with my laptop which is running window vista. One thing i do remember missing with is the usb setting on the mp3 player. Maybe you can try switching between the usb opinions to see if that will fix your problem. the usb setting screen is under "setting", "usb mode".

Player doesn't seem to recognize songs.


Try transferring the songs directly to the music folder of the player and check if they would be recognized by the player. And make sure the Bitrate is in the range of 120-320kbps .

My sansa e200 is not recognized by my pc


Have you tried changing the USB format? Go to the settings option on your sandisk and look for USB Mode. Change is to MSC (if that doesn´t work try MTP). When you connect it, it should detect the player.

Will not recognise songs on player


Your Sansa E250 player comes in two modes -- MTP (Music Transfer Protocol) and MSC (Mass Storage Class). When you save songs on one of these modes, they would not be recognized by the other mode and vice versa. The reason for that is because the MTP mode is used for subscription music while the MSC mode is generally to allow your MP3 player to functions as a "Flash Drive", a regular mass storage device. To test if this is what's actually happening to your player, try each mode and see if you'll be able to "view" the songs when plugged in your computer: 1. Go to the modes on your E250 by navigating the player: Menu > Settings > USB Mode 2. When you've selected a mode, browse the player in your "Windows Explorer". Note: MTP mode will give you an icon of the E250 (player will be recognized as a Portable Audio Device) while MSC mode will have a Drive Letter (player will be recognized as a "Removable Drive") 3. Make sure that your Windows Explorer is configured to "Show all Hidden Files and Folders". To do this, access your Explorer's menu: Tools > Folder Options > "View" tab > enable "Show Hidden Files and Folders" You should be able to find the music files (or picture/video files for that matter) that have been taking up 1.4GB If you'd like to free up this 1.4GB, you may want to Format the player under MSC mode. To do that, right-click on the Drive Letter corresponding to your E250 in Windows Explorer, then select "Format". Follow the on-screen prompts and that should reset your player back to its original free space. Let me know if this helps. I may be able to offer some more solutions based on the result of the procedures above. Let's keep your Sansa E250 playin' :)

Deleting files from Sansa e250


The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD: 1. Set the e250 to MSC mode. 2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector. 3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.) To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
