Question about SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

It's telling me to synchronize music that I own (copied from cds)

Maybe this is something easy that I'm just aware of, but I thought the player should have no problem playing the music I uploaded onto my computer from my cds. Out of the 200 songs I've recently put on the player, it's only playing about 40 or so. I think it's only playing ones that I've downloaded (for the most part). Are the files in the wrong format?

Anyway, the problem I get is that when the song changes to one that is unsupported, it tells me to synchronize. So I connected it to the computer and thought I synchronized it through RealPlayer, but it hasn't fixed the problem.

I'm probably a big dummy and maybe it's something simple, but I'm lost and frustrated and really considering scrapping the whole thing for an IPod.

Thanks in advance for the help!!

Use Windows Media Player to rip the songs into Mp3 format - make sure you select mp3 in the Rip options. Real Player rips songs from CD into the wrong format.

Wont play songs


If you didnt change the default settings for Windows Media Player, it is set to "copy protect my music", which would cause this error. To change the settings go to Windows Media Player>Tools>Options>Rip Music and uncheck the "copy protect my music" box. You will need to delete the previously transferred music from your device, re-rip them to your PC, then re-transfer them to your device. Best of Luck.

Sansa e260 won't let me download certain music


If you used Windows Media Player to "rip" (copy) the music to your computer. The default settings are to "copy protect my music" if you didnt change this setting, the Sansa will want a "license" to go with it. Resolution, change the setting in Windows Media Player, Tools>Options>Rip Music (uncheck copy protect my music). You can also change the default rip setting to Mp3, as opposed to Windows Media Audio. Then you would have to re-rip the tracks to your PC, as unprotected. Make sure you delete the old tracks from the device, otherwise, it will always give you that error message. Best of Luck.
