Delete and start over again

it's best to sync a few disconnect, let the database update, and then reconnect, load some more

Hi there, I use WMP too and have had good results with it. My thought is some files can not be played like some avi files won't work. They have to be windows compatible or they won't work on your mp3 player. Be careful what you download too (viruses) can affect your players software. I would do a virus scan before transfer. Good luck.

Your Windows Media Player may need to be updated and the player may need to be formatted. Please try these steps: 1) If you do not have it installed yet, please install the latest version of WMP10. 2) Download and install the quick fix from: http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/e/0/7e055e3f-6014-43bc-b6ff-6a90ced1d032/WindowsMedia10-KB902344-x86-INTL.exe 3) Format m250 device using the Sync mode in WMP. 4) To test, transfer songs to the player using the software for your subscription music service.

Player won't work with vista? can i download software to make it compatible with vista?


Hello,

When you're able to view the menus of the player, look in the manual on page 30 = page 31 of the pdf file for the USB connection mode on your player:
Settings
USB > Auto Detect
> MSC
M200 series manual in pdf format:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/downloads/um/sansa-m200-um.pdf
With Windows Media Player 11 under Vista, the player should be
recognized as a media device in this Microsoft Media Player. Transfers can be made in MTP mode (Media Transfer Protocol) using WMP 11: USB mode should be in Auto Detect.
In Autodetect mode files on the player can also be viewed in the Explorer mode under My Computer, seeing the player as an external flash drive.
In WMP11 use Library and Sync mode for creating playlists and synchronizing music. More about how to use WMP11, see the help items in the player (click on e.g. Library or Sync etc.) or go to the Microsoft site:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/using.mspx


When USB mode is set to MSC mode (Mass Storage Class) the player can only be viewed in the Explorer under My Computer.

I can't listen to my SpiralFrog music!!!


That's the problem with DRM licensing. Do yourself a favor - only download mp3 format songs to the player, and you will never have this problem. If you want to use SpiralFrog, delete all songs that are on your mp3 player now, make sure your spiral frog sub allows transfer rights, and reload the songs.

Sansa m250 playlists


First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.


To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Can not view my music files on my laptop (but can on my desktop)


Get the latest firmware upgrade - this player wasn't originally designed with WMP 11 in mind. Also, make sure the laptop has the folders "My Documents" and "My Music" on it - this is primarily where WMP reads from.
