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

I can not resync my sansa e270 when i plug it into the computer, i use rhapsody and never had this problem before


Hi, theres 2 ways usually to sync with sansa.

usually wen u plug it into the usb cord, u shud be able to open a folder and put musik through that.

My computers. than go to Sansa

or WMP depending on ur version

go to Synchronizing or Copy to CD or DEVICE.

there should be syncing button under the music list depending on the version.

but i stick to open my computer and the Sansa folder.


IF NOT THAN DO THIS..

Go to ur Sansa in the USB option change it to MSC than follow these instructions


To add songs using the MSC mode, follow these steps:

1. Organize your songs into folders and place it into one directory.
2. Open "My Computer" and open the drive for your Sansa.
3. click on Tools choose File Option, there will be a Pop-up screen and choose View Tab
4. Select on Show Hidden files and Folder Option, so you can see all the files
5. Choose MUSIC Folder, double click and Drag and drop all the songs on that folder, and It will go automatically on your player. OR highlight a songs, right click select COPY, go to MUSIC folder right click then PASTE and it will be save on your Player


Good luck.

There are several songs that are on the m240 that are not showing when you look at it's files - how are these hidden?


If you added songs to the device in MSC mode, then switch to MTP mode, you will not be able to see the songs added in MSC mode and vice versa, though the space used on the player will still reflect their presence. Switching modes should make the files show up. For example, switching from MSC to MTP mode or vice versa.

For older players - e200v1, c200v1, c100, m200 - the files become hidden files if the modes are switched. An easy workaround is to edit the folder options to show hidden files.

STEP 1 - Edit the folder options of the computer to show the hidden files

Windows XP:
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Under the Tools menu, select Folder options, then click the View tab.
3. Under Hidden files and folders option, select Show hidden files and folders.
4. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box.
5. Click Apply, then click OK.

Windows Vista:
1. Double-click Computer.
2. Click the Organize button on the upper left corner.
3. Click Folder and search options.
4. Click the View tab and select Show hidden files and folders.
5. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files check box.
6. Click Apply, then click OK.


SOLUTION 2 - Perform a Check Disk.

STEP 1 - Switch to MSC mode
1. On your Sansa player, switch the USB mode to MSC.
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.

STEP 2 - Perform Check Disk
1. Locate the Sansa player under My Computer.
2. Right-click the removable drive associated with the Sansa player, and select Properties.
3. Click the Tools tab, and then click Check now.
4. Click to select the Automatically fix the file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check boxes.
5. Click Start.

Sansa m250 2GB can not see any files or play


I had a similar problem.
This is how I fixed Sansa m250 2GB
I have Windows XP, so if you have a different version of Windows you might have to do something else.
Connect the player to your computer.
From My Computer open the drive that says SANSA M250
If there is no folder called "audio" make a folder named that. (this is where your future mp3 files will be stored).
My audio folder was missing, so I had to do this.
Now go back to My Computer right click on the SANSA M250 drive scroll down the menu and open the folder that says "Open As Portable Media Device".
Now click on the icon that says "SANSA M250"
Now open the folder that says "FOUND.000".
If you are having the same problem that I did all your old mp3 files will show up with a file extension .CHK instead of mp3 and the names will be numbers. You can either erase all these & reload all your songs into the "audio" folder I mentioned previously or you can rename each file extension to a .MP3 instead of .CHK. (after you change them to .MP3 they will load on your mp3 player. But, remember if you do choose to rename them instead of erasing and reloading, when you want to permanently delete them you will have to access the "FOUND.000" folder again to do that.

The MUSIC folder is a "hidden" folder when in MSC mode.
To view it (assuming you're using Windows XP) go to:
My Computer>Tools>Folder Options>View Tab.
Scroll down till you see Hidden Files and Folders
and click on Show Hidden Files and Folders, and then OK.
You should then be able to see all the folders on your Sansa. The "hidden" folders will appear slghtly lighter in color. This is where you can delete click on folder then go toleft of screen to "delete this folder" (or open folder and click individual song" then go to left of screen

Adding Music To My Sansa e250


I never use Windows Media to add music to my sansa... If you want all music to show up click on my computer and then click on the icon for your sansa. there may be a folder that says music but if not it is a hidden folder. if this is so you must go to tools, then folder options, and then the tab that says view. under this will be an option that says hidden files and folders and click show hiden fles and folders and OK. this should allow you to see the music folder. from here on you can just copy and paste all files.

Actually you cannot delete them from your mp3. you gotta connect it via usb to your pc, go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync pane in windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
Hope this helps
If you still not able to delete it let me know so I can have you try something else...
P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

Deleting songs


Chances are that you are using windows xp. open up your sansa folder to where it says pictuer, movies, ect. look at the picture to see what to do. In your player folder click tools --> folder options --> View. Under hidden files and folders click 'show hidden files and folders, click ok. The music folder would now show up where the videos and pictures are. Simply open the music folder and delete the ones you do not want. By default the songs are sorted by artist --> album --> song.
