Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Music folder won't show up.

I just recently replaced my hard drive and now I'm having trouble with the sansa installation.
I re-installed the cd that came with the player but when I plug it in, the only folder that comes up is a "system" folder. There is no way for me to add music to the device.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but it hasn't fixed the problem.
Help!!

TRY THIS LINK :

OR TRY THIS :

In your player's menu, go into Settings, choose USB mode, and change it to MSC. This will cause the player to show up in Windows as if it were a flash drive, and you can add and delete music by drag and drop into the player's Music folder. Hope it helps and please rate , thanks AJ

I installed an external 2 gig Sdmicro card, how do I download to it.


Create a folder called "MUSIC" on the card, then you can copy audio tracks to that folder. If you connect the Sansa to the computer, the card should show up as another hard drive. If you have a card reader, it'll probably be faster than using the Sansa as a card reader.

The Sansa will not play photos or videos from the card, only audios.

Is there driver/ software for Win ME for the Sansa Clip mp3?


a friend told me that if the device shows as"connected" when hooked up (it does) AND the battery charges correctly (it does), then (a)the USB connection had enough juice; and (b) the PC recognizes it - i just had to FIND it. device manager/ MyComputer: nada; same for ANY file/ folder with "sansa" or "sandisk." working thru WMP (Windows Media Player), however, I discovered that drive E - for a portable hard drive, NOT currently connected via USB - was STILL showing up in the "Copy to CD or device" field. sure enough, it was the SanDisk clip player (even though it was NOT under the "Recognized Portable Devices" subsection). without using the installation disk at all, it downloaded tunes just fine. *note: the installation disk seemed to be an .exe file ONLY for the Rhapsody music service. as noted above, it was unnecessary. also - my USB ports are 1.1 and not 2.0, and package stated USB 2.0 was a "minimum requirement" - not true*

Hi I bought scandisk e260 without cd, when I connect it to the computer, the computer ask me to locate driver. Where can I get driver? thanks


Try connecting it to another computer and see if it will recognize it as sansa or removable drive. if it does then download the sansa update software and install it. Make sure you disconnect the sansa and connect it when asked. This will update your sansa and add the Usb Mode. Try to connect it to your computer at home it should recognize.... link for update software (http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe) download to a flash drive much easier Make sure USB mode is MSC I use my computer to drag and drop my music from my music folder to the sansa media folder.... Open my computer click on folder what ever folder has your music in it and drag to media folder and drop (click on the (+)where it say's sansa ) easier not to sync

connect to your pc using usb connection. sansa should be recognized as storage media drive. navigate to the drive. Drag and drop files to music/video folder. Enable show hidden files and folders in your windows folder settings. Tools>Folder Options>View. Some of the folders are hidden. You can delete the preloaded music also.Some of them are in the radio folder.

Sandisk Sansa e250r - cannot delete mp3 files


I have had this problem for some time now and finally got through to tech support for Sansa and now have the solution:Worked for both 230 and 240.
Take out the battery in the Sansa player; Put on lock on back side of Sansa player; Connect Sansa to the computer, Once computer recognizes device cancel out of that media program; Go to my computer on desk top; Right click on recognized Sansa device; Click format; Click ok to delete files.
