    Same problem. Tried MTP mode as well but indicates "new device". clicking on the popup closes it mometarily only to return the popup over and over. MSC mode also doesn't work and does what onlyjr88's does. Both Real one and musicmatch indicate music downloaded but in fact music is not downloaded.

I just posted the same problem and began pecking around for solution. Bear in mind, my knowledge of computer systems is weak. Now, one suggestion I found was (if using windows media player to load music to your player) revert back to version 10. I tried that but resulted in......"not supported by my system"..I guess windows XP?. HOWEVER I did notice a critical update to windows media player which I completed. Then, using version 11 in MTP mode, my son WAS able to put songs on his player. Could this be the holy grail? Worth a try anyway. Good luck!

Hi. I have a Samsung Sansa MP3 clip-on player. I listen to audio books all the time. I order an audio book online. It comes to me in either a regular CD or an MP3 version (however they manufacture it)....


Normally MP3 players can only play music/audio files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

I do not have any software on my computer anymore for my sandisk mp3 player. how can i redownload the necessary program (s) to be able to remove and download music to my device?


You do not need software to use the Sansa e250. You can simply plug it into your computer, and use it as a portable drive. You can drag your music files directly onto the player from your computers file explorer.
Hope this helps!

Music not showing up even when downloaded


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
-----
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
