Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sansa won't allow me to add new Mp3s

I'm really technically unskilled - that is, I'm ok once I get used to one particular way of doing something. This problem, I can't solve.

I've always added files to my sansa mp3 player by opening the folder and just copying files to it from my computer... now I've tried this with some new mp3s, I created an album folder, within the folder that already existed for this particular artist, as I always have done in the past, but then when I disconnected my sansa, and checked under the artist name, the new album wasn't there. When I looked under the songs, the songs are there, but when I try to play them, it moves to the next one down in the list. If I then use the arrow button, to go to the previous song, for some weird reason, that actually works!

After further investigation, I have discovered that my mp3 player has decided to store all these new songs under "unknown" goodness knows why!

I have no idea what on earth the problem is! I haven't done anything differently than usual, but I really need my songs to be neatly stored under the artist name, and for the song I select, to actually play!

Can anyone help?

I'm also stuck on how to create playlists, but that seems like a whole different problem from what I've seen just googling it.

Ok. first, you need to change the id3 tag in your mp3 files by right clicking it, selection properties, and then under information, change the album and artist name to what you desire.


for playlist, make a playlist in windows media and save it, then change the extension to .plp

It's hit-and-miss whether my Sansa will register transferred mp3s


first try using windows media player to sync.. it tends to work a bit better if not
try this...

1 connect your sansa to comp via usb cable
2 right click start on windows desktop go to explore
3 scroll down to your sansa's drive rifght click it go to properties
4 go to tools tab and click "check now" under error checking will take awhile and will erase your memory on the sansa but it will probably work again

I hope my post was helpful let me know!!!!

How do you download a podcast on the sansa mp3 clip?


Hi wyostardust,

There is a workaround to not use iTunes to subscribe to and download your favorite podcasts. This workaround is called Juiced : http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/ and it is free. Once you have used Juice to download all your podcasts you can then transfer them (the mp3s) to your Sansa Clip the same way you do with your music.

Regards,
-SHG

SANSA e250 PROBLEMS!


Someone else mentioned this problem....I thought it might be that some files have different artist names (or vice versa?). You really have to keep a clean library with proper summary fileds (artist, title, track number, etc.). First of all, you should always be using MTP mode (USB mode in Sansa player settings). MTC mode is problematic. Are you using WMA or mp3 files? The other person had the same problem using WMA files....maybe using mp3s would fix this.

Sansa m240 MP3 Unknown Artist


I can confirm that the following method works for me (finally):

1. Download and install Mp3tag (I'm using v. 2.48)
2. "Change" or "Add" the directory in which the mp3s reside

3. Make certain you have data for "Artist", "Album Artist", and "Album" (fill in if needed)
4. Select all mp3s and click the "Save" icon (or right-click them and choose "Save tag")
5. Transfer back to your Sansa device
