Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

My Sansa C250 has worked great for about two years, up until now. I have over two hundred songs on it, it's a two gig. The thing is, no computer will recognize the files on it. It will recognize voice...


Sandisk about this problem songs not being recognized on the computer but still on the player:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/447
Use this links as main help thread.

The standard connection type of C200 series is MTP = Media Transfer Protocol. In this mode you can see the connected device as a portable player.

Songs that are put on the player in UMS = Universal Mass Storage mode (also called MSC = Mass Storage Class), seeing the device as a removable disk can only be seen in the players' UMS mode and vice versa.

Check the setting of the USB mode on the display of the C250:

Main Menu
> Settings / USB / Autodetect or MSC mode

Autodetect = MTP mode: computer sees the player Sansa C250.
MSC mode: computer sees a removable disk.

Now 2 things could have happened:

1. Music is put on the player in MSC mode and now the player is
connected in MTP mode or vice versa.

2. There are bad sectors or corrupted files are transferred on the players' removable disk.
  • In case of bad sectors a recovery is possible: in MSC mode perform check disk as told in the link above.

  • In case of corrupted files a format of the device is needed. First a backup of all data has to be made. Next perform format. This can be done in 2 ways:
Using disk management:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/107
Using Windows Media Player:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/444

Option 2. having problems with the disk or data on the players' disk can also be solved by updating the firmware.
For firmware update see link:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/315
Remember: before updating backup the data from player to the computer.

When more help is needed just post a comment.

My Sansa c250 won't charge properly. Initially when I bought it, I used it with a Windows XP PC, no sweat. That computer died and I began charging it with an OSX instead. It worked for a while, but after a...


I had a similar problem. My Sansa c250 would charge, when plugged into the computer. It would read that it was writing but the computer did not recognized that the Sansa c250 was connected. I switched to a different USB port and got the same results. I then realized that the two ports I was using were 1.0 port and idmedeatly when inserted in the 2.0 port it began charging and the computer recongized the Sansa c250. I know this won't solve every charging problem one may have. Changing the battery would be easier in some cases. Especially if they were sold like the AA or AAA.

USB not getting recognized


Sansa c200 series – Computer/OS Not Recognizing
Connect the device to the PC in MSC Mode
View/c200: Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC
If that fails, unplug the Sansa from the computer. Uninstall all the Sansa software in the add/remove programs section of Control Panel. Reinstall the clean version of the software from Sandisk’s website – make sure you get the files for the c200 series. Then replug the Sansa and try again. The root of the problem is that Sansa has one set of drivers and Windows has another. If you plug the mp3 player into the computer before installing the Sansa drivers, the Windows drivers will trump the Sansa’s.
Here is a helpful link from Sandisk on the problem with extra information on Vista operating systems:

Cant arrange songs according to my way


I used ID3-TagIT to change the album name of my songs to the name of the folder on my Sansa c250 that I want to put the songs in. Open your Sansa in My Computer, double click on Internal Memory and open the music folder. Add a new folder and name it whatever you put in for the album name of your songs. Highlight all your songs and drag and drop them into your folder. Don't use media player to sync or they end up all mixed up in different folders.

Help!


We have two laptops and one desktop in my house and two 2GB Sansa c250s. My laptop recognizes my sansa c250 differently than our family's desktop (i.e. on the desktop i can't view certain folders/ music files that i transferred from my laptop to my player). The second laptop doesn't recognize mine at all, but it DOES recognize my sister's sansa c250.
my suggestion? try a different computer! and then KEEP using that computer for adding/ deleting files.
