Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Album and genre control

The device is SanDisk model m230. I have a bunch of music ripped from old CDs in mp3 format. There is no information about artist, title, genre or anysuch thing. (Not that I can detect) How do I arrange things by artist. When I plug it into my Windows XP, I see Sansa M230, then what looks like a directory called TCNANDO, and beneath that RECORD. Songs already on the device are not visible. I downloaded the PDF instruction manual and it is of no use. When connected to my PC, none of the buttons on the M230 do anything.

How do I work this thing from my PC?

Thank you.

CREATING AND TRANSFERRING MP3 MUSIC FILES


CREATING MP3 MUSIC FILES

1st - You need to convert your CDs to MP3 music files.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.
There are also Freeware CD RIP programs on the Internet that embed the music title and album title automatically into the mp3 file.
OR
Download MP3 music files from the Internet, some sites will cost money to download these music files.

2nd - connect your MP3 player to your computer using the supplied USB cable. The computer will see this player as an external storage device. Just copy the MP3 music files from the computer's hard disk and paste these music files to the MP3 player.

I suggest you create a album/title folder for each CD so you can place the MP3 music files by that artist into that folder. Then copy these folders to your MP3 player and you will be able to select and play your MP3 music by selecting the album you wish to play.

To convert just about any audio file into your preferred format, download Free Audio Converter 2.3.2

Sansa e280- files added via WMP10 or Windows explorer, but don't show up on player


No limit on the Genres.

If you keep adding music in different modes, Windows Media Player and Windows Explorer will not show the correct free space.

Theres a good chance you have too music music on your device and the device does not have enough free space to create the Database, or the songs, artists, album, etc.

Try deleting a few songs from the device with Windows Explorer and disconnect the player and let it restart.

If that doesnt work, you can FORMAT the device to remove all of the music and start over.


To format in My Computer>Device name (e280)>Right Click and select FORMAT.






Best of Luck.

Everything is wiped out and so is the radio! Please help !!


The Music DB refers to the information (i.e. - Artist, Album, etc.).

The device need you to free up 6MB so it can create this.

Connect the device to the PC and delete several songs until you have at least 6MB free.

Disconnect it, restart, and youre all set.




Best of Luck.
