Re: can't find music files
it might be a virus attack
brows the player on a computer.
from the folder option, make view options as
show hidden files
uncheck Hide protected operating system files press OK
if u can see all files, then select all files(Ctrl+A). Right click on a selected file, select properties. In the properties dialog box uncheck Hidden, System and press ok
Hope now u can see all the files.

You are attempting to add music to the disk function on your device make sure it is on the mtp function so that all of your memory is avalable. this is done when you dturn it on and then hook up to your computer. You'll figure it out I did the same thing a couple times - Good Luck
I would stop using the program that you are using. Instead, and this is what I like to do, when you connect your mp3 player to your computer, and you open "My Computer," your mp3 player should pop up like a hard drive. Open it, and drag - and - drop your files from your music folder.
It's a lot faster to do this.
Ok, I have a Sansa e250 2.0 BG. I have an extra memory card but w/e thats not part of the problem. So, when I downloaded music, I accidently put more music on the Sansa memory and it made it too full. So now it has to do a system restart everytime I turn it on. Which is really annoying. And then I tried to delete some music so It would stop doing that and I could update it, But it shows up on my computer as there being no music. So theres nothing to delete! But it says the memory is full! HELP!!!!
Chances are that you are using windows xp. open up your sansa folder to where it says pictuer, movies, ect. look at the picture to see what to do. In your player folder click tools --> folder options --> View. Under hidden files and folders click 'show hidden files and folders, click ok. The music folder would now show up where the videos and pictures are. Simply open the music folder and delete the ones you do not want. By default the songs are sorted by artist --> album --> song.
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.
