I just got the sansa e 250 and i currently have windows 2000 (I have an old computer and it wont support windows XP) anyways i figured out how to add songs by switching the USB mode, however those songs are for some reason placed in the "recording" folder. I want to add these songs to a playlist or move them to the "songs" folder so i dont have to go to a separate place to listen to those specific songs, but i dont know how...any suggestions.
P.S. I tried adding them to the go list by going to options but under the "recording" folder there is no option to do this.

If you mean that the songs don't show up on the computer screen, then you probably need to change the USB MODE setting on the Clip. To do this, disconnect the Clip from the computer, then scroll to SETTINGS. Select Settings, then scroll to USB Mode and select it.. (If your Clip is very old it might not have a USB Mode listed under SETTINGS. If this is the case you should update your Clip's Firmware from the sansa website). Older computers recognize the MSC Mode while newer ones should recognize either mode. (except XP Professional doesn't seem to recognize the MTP mode). Songs entered in one mode won't show up on the computer if you're in the other mode. If you mean that the songs aren't showing up on the Clip's own screen then this solution probably won't help. By the way, I've never had any luck with the "auto detect" mode.
I'm not sure what you are asking, but maybe my experience can help you. I was using Windows 2000 (it has no DRM) and the Sansa C240 was displayed in Windows Explorer like a removable drive. I could copy and delete files in Windows Explorer. I switched to Windows XP and when I connected the C240, no files were displayed for it in Windows Explorer. I realized that XP had DRM and all the media files had to be transfered with Windows Media Player. When I opened WMP, it recognized the C240, but it didn't list any of the mp3 files I had already loaded on the C240. WMP asked if I wanted to delete all the media currently on the C240, but I clicked No. After that, WMP worked like the old files didn't exist. It would only delete files that had been copied to the C240 when it was synced. I would recommend that you use Windows Media Player (or WinAmp) to delete all old media files on the C240 and use the sync button to copy and delete files from the C240. See Windows Media Player help for details.
1. Make sure you Windows Media Player 11 (Goto Help --> About WMP --> v??)
2. If you do not have it, install it from this location: http://www.microsoft.com/mediaplayer
3. Change the Mode on Device: Go into Menu --> Settings --> USB Mode:Auto Detect/MTP/MSC
4. Select MSC and it should work. If it does not try Powercycling your device (turn it off and then turn it on).
5. Try other modes as well.
well, you rproblem lies with the built in DRm feature this blocks you from putting all your music on your Sansa, and then going to your buddies house and giving him all your music from off your iPod. its there, it just wont show it
If you want to delete EVERY track off the player, then reformat the player in Windows Media Player - it's a shortcut - see my "tips and tricks" on formatting mp3 players If there are artist, album traces, then you need to click on every subfolder under your device in Windows Media Player and delete every trace that way - tedious, but effective -Tha Mp3 Doctor There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files
This player will only recognize Audible audiobook files
There is not a fix for the pause/resume issue - it is a major problem for just about every mp3 player that claims audiobook compatibility

We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.
