Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Slow response when browsing to new list

When I try to go to a new list in my music it takes forever before it finally responds. Frequently I think that I did not actually click and do it again, then as soon as it enters the list ir remembers the second click and loads the frist song rather than letting me browse.

Reset the player first, and see if that helps.

    You might want to consider a firmware upgrade - I'm going to give you a list of "soft" fixes for your problem (note: the volume + method was a generic method for Sansas; in the e200 series, the buttons are REC and HOLD instead of volume + - double-check Sandisk's website for the exact method):

    These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3
    Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa
    players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do
    not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues -
    they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes,
    flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.



    Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.

    Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.

    Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the
    computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull
    down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor
    over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow
    underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary
    slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.


    Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware
    upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in
    the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have
    the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to
    find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/dr...


    If these fail, then:

    Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off,
    hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer
    while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button
    for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into
    recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says
    Found New Hardware Wizard.


    If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).

    You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods
    to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE
    shutting down your computer.

How do you simply just put files onto this i can get them on to the flash drive but it wont read them as music files


Turn on the player_slide power switch up_hold about 3 seconds, release

Silvania boots, then system Menu appears.

Select Music icon

Scroll with <> to highligh hidden MediaLib Update
player rebuilds Music media database used in player
use Dir List to open the browser. Navigate to location of your music files

Use Explorer Icon to browse directory list and use Delete button (square with X) to delete Selected file in Explorer view.

In My Computer, Use Properties to Name (Label) your drives. You see name given in My Computer, makes much easier to locate files. For easier browsing in Windows try a Toolbar for My Computer(XP) or Computer (Vista, 7) to browse your devices (I have a Computer toolbar on the taskbar of Every Computer I use)

Open SMPK8858 in my computer, you see RECORDING folder
This was the only folder on mine when I started, and Sealed, Brand New unit came with NO SOFTWARE and microscopic manual

Create new file structure for storing your PHOTOS, VIDEOS, Ebooks etc. Don't place everything in one folder, use logical folders to store your files. Drag and Drop FILES into your folders in my computer, or create a shortcut on desktop to access your device when connected.

Deleted folders, it now says No music file for my music


When I couldn't find music files I went from the main menu to music to browse music - the last option on this menu - normally they would all be there ... If not you can go from the main menu to browse files which takes you straight to everything in your mp3 player, select music and the list would be there also.
Hope this helps =)

Problem with creative


Are you putting music on the player or on an SD card? What format are the files? If they are iTunes m4a files, the creative player won't read or play them. If they are not mp3 or wma files they have to be converted using 3rd party software.
If you put music on the SD card you have to either browse the card from the main menu or import the songs from the SD card to the player itself. The files won't just list from the main music menu. I have one of those players and it worked pretty well but it takes some playing with to get the hang of some of the features and so on.
Are you using the software that came with it? You may want to check the Creative site for updated software, and I also noticed there is an update for the firmware if it is not already updated.

Let me know if I can help further.

Cheers

The media device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected


Make sure you're not using the media with another program while you attempt to copy/sync it to your device.

Pretty late response, but meh.

Virgin electronics does not want to work


I have fixed this, and I hate this player, however this is the solution

I've uploaded ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED on this rapidshare link, I format my player and bringit back to life with only this...
http://rapidshare.com/files/106001227/Player.rar.html

1.- unrar to the player
2.- try if it works, if not go to 2.1
2.1.- install the software, included in the rar file, then try if it works it should

IMPORTANT: when you have manage to make it work do this, it will save you a lot of time

1.- browse your player to the system/data folder and backup those files, if you get any future troubles (like no music found, strange characters instead of artist's list) replace those files with your backup, backup those files always after adding new music!!!

2.- save the rar file I've uploaded, if you have the wmp plugin already installed and you get the "Oh dear this hard disk doesn't work" message again, just format the player, and put every single file from the rar to the player

3.- excuse my english...
any further problems --> msn: sebastianoo7@hotmail.com

4.- help other virgin 5gb users
