Question about SanDisk Sansa e270 MP3 Player

Problem viewing recently added songs

After switching my mp3 player to the MTP mode, I can see now the majority of my songs but now my recently added songs are nowhere to be seen. When I click on My Computer/Sansa e260/PPI NAND/Jamie, I can see the recently added ones but they must be saved somewhere differently than the rest of my songs. I don't know how to get them to be in the same places as the rest of my songs. If I did a Sync with them, I'd only be re-adding them to my mp3 player and they are already in there. Any ideas? When I plug my MP3 into the computer there is no Music folder. I can see and play some of the songs on my MP3 but I can't delete any of them. I'm in the MTP mode. Don't know what else to do.

Move those songs to the My Music folder, and they will all be in the same place on your computer. Switch to Auto USB mode instead of MTP - the hidden music folder should become visible.

Not enough space


You should have your Sansa player set to MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) when you are using it with any of the supported subscription (ie) iTunes, or Rhapsody music services. The main purpose of MTP is to transfer media files and associated metadata to/from devices, with optional additional support for reading and setting of device parameters such as special DRM-related device parameters for restricted content. Otherwise, you should set it to MSC (Mass Storage Class), which is the normal USB mode for storage devices like thumb drives, and camara SD memory cards.
See this tip posted here Tips on MP3 connection problems..
MTP stands for Media Transfer Protocol. It is a Microsoft standard and is Microsoft's solution to connecting MP3 players and cameras to a w*ndow based Computer. MTP mode must be used in order to transfer ANY Digital Rights Management (DRM) protected content. MP3's downloaded form services like Rhapsody and Napster will only function in this MTP mode. Things to do if you are getting not enough space mesage.
1. Turn device OFF. 2. Facing the hold switch slide it to the right so an orange color would show putting the device on Hold. 3. Connect the device to the PC.


If you added songs to the device in MSC mode, then you switched to MTP mode, you will not be able to see the songs added in MSC mode and vice versa, though the space used on the player will still reflect their presence. Switching modes should make the files show up. For example, switching back to MSC or MTP mode.
For older players - e200v1, c200v1, c100, m200 - the files become hidden files if the modes are switched. An easy workaround is to edit the folder options to show hidden files.
STEP 1 - Edit the folder options of the computer to show the hidden files
Windows XP: 1. Double-click My Computer. 2. Under the Tools menu, select Folder options, then click the View tab. 3. Under Hidden files and folders option, select Show hidden files and folders. 4. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 5. Click Apply, then click OK.
Windows Vista: 1. Double-click Computer. 2. Click the Organize button on the upper left corner. 3. Click Folder and search options. 4. Click the View tab and select Show hidden files and folders. 5. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files check box. 6. Click Apply, then click OK.

SOLUTION 2 - Perform a Check Disk.
STEP 1 - Switch to MSC mode 1. On your Sansa player, switch the USB mode to MSC. 2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.
STEP 2 - Perform Check Disk 1. Locate the Sansa player under My Computer. 2. Right-click the removable drive associated with the Sansa player, and select Properties. 3. Click the Tools tab, and then click Check now. 4. Click to select the Automatically fix the file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check boxes. 5. Click Start.

SOLUTION 3 - Format the player in MSC mode or MTP mode.

How do I listen to downloaded audio book? SanDisk Sansa mp3 model E250


If the book was purchased from the net and came with a license, you will have to set the player to MTP mode and sync the book through Media player or QuickTime. MTP stands forMedia Transfer Protocol. It is a Microsoft standard and is Microsoft's solution to connecting MP3 players and cameras to a w*ndow based Computer. MTP mode must be used in order to transfer ANY Digital Rights Management, (DRM) or protected content. MP3's downloaded form services like Rhapsody and Napster even Amazon will only function in this MTP mode. Now, Any songs added to your player in MSC mode will not be available in MTP mode and vise-a-versa. In other words You can't see the files added in the other mode and you can not play them.

I need help trying to put videos on my mp4 player


If you added songs/ videos to the device in MSC mode, then switch to MTP mode, you will not be able to see the songs added in MSC mode and vice versa, though the space used on the player will still reflect their presence. Switching modes should make the files show up. For example, switching from MSC to MTP mode or vice versa. But you can not see the songs / videos copied during other mode, is that clear as mud?

Check the used space on the device. (Right-click the drive letter in 'My Computer' and select properties). The e130 has 512MB of internal memory and you will be able to compare the amount of used space listed here against the amount listed when you view the songs in a folder. If it's different, try right-clicking the drive letter again and 'format'. This will erase all data on the device, allowing for a fresh start.
