Question about SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player

Can no longer upload Audio books

When I attempt to upload an Audible audio file from the Audible web site, the progress bar gets to about 5% and freezes. During which time my sansa m250 freezes with the message "writing data" on the screen. The Audible program on my desktop wont close by convential means so I mush do the Control-Alt-Delete thing to terminate running the program. The only way to get sansa to shut down is by pulling out the battery. Please help.

    Mankou,

    Thank you for the advice. I assume what you mean by "soft reset/restore factory defaults" is the "Reset All" Option under the Settings menu. When I attempt that option, I am taken to a screen that says "Restore Default. Reset to factory default settings" then there is a box with an "x" in the lower left corner and a box with a "check" in the lower right corner. When I select the check box and press the Enter button, I dont see any change and I am taken back to the previous Settings screen. Same scenario when I select the "x" box and press the Enter button. Thanks in advance for your and anyone elses help.

No Joy mankou,
There is nothing to slike up as directed in the link. My particular model SanDisk has an on/off button that gets pressed to turn on and off. I did however go thru the motions pressing and holding the power button, but there is no change.

I have an AA file that I downloaded from audible.com, it's a book. When I try to sync it to the Sony Walkman from Windows Media Play, I get an error. The error says "Windows Media Player cannot sync...


The "AA" file type is not supported in the NWZ MP3 players. However, you are still able to place audiobooks onto your player if you convert the file to one of the supported file audio formats: MP3. WMA, AAC-LC, and PCM. Remember that there are several iterations of MP3, such as variable bit rate and frequency range and the player does not play some of them.

What I do is that I pull the file into Audacity and convert it there. Another option is that if you can burn the audiobook onto a CD, you can then rip to WMP and then sync it to your player. That is how I get my language audiobooks onto my player. The last option, which I have never tried, is to get it into ITunes, then sync it to your player that way. ITunes will automatically convert the file before syncing it onto the player.

Hope that helps.

Have poloroid mp3 player model 151, 2 gbs, it won't play audio books, files with AA extension. Audible.com site has no solution, i.e, doesn't list this device ed rebranger@belllsouth.net


MP3 players play audio/music files that have mp3 file extension.
You need to convert the audio books to MP3 format.
If the audio books are on a CD, then you can use Windows Media player to RIP (convert) this to MP3 files.

How do i play my audio books from audible.com


You have to make sure that your audio books are in an mp3 or wma format. If they aren't - you will have to convert them which is a fairly simple process.

Sansa m250 doesn't continue playing from the same spot after power up


This player will only recognize Audible audiobook files

There is not a fix for the pause/resume issue - it is a major problem for just about every mp3 player that claims audiobook compatibility

Problem playing a downloaded audio book


Perhaps your audio book was from audible.com. They use their own audible format ( .aa instead of .mp3) and only certain mp3 players can play .aa files. If the book is in .aa format, go to www.audible.com and check to see whether or not your player is compatible with .aa files. If not, you're outta luck. durok

How do I load an mp3 (audio book) into my Garmin?


If your audio book is in mp3 format you simply connect the USB cable to your unit and then drag and drop the mp3 files into the mp3 folder on the Nuvi650 device. If the audio books are in Audible format (.aa) then drag and drop them the same way into the Audible folder. Disconnect your unit from the computer and look for your audio book in the appropriate folder (mp3 or Audible) ... and no, mp3 Audiobooks and Audible Audiobooks are not the same format.
