Question about SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player
Hi, I try and view all the mp3s on my Sandisk M250 and , .. As I view all files that are supposedly on the device , I have about 463 files and many are multiples downloads..of the same songs!! The ones that , I want to REMOVE are invisible.. should , I try accessing it through , Internet explorer.. and my computer? I'd greatly a[ppreciate any suggestions you may have... Thank You, Rebecca Duarte"
It's kind of crazy, but here's what works for me (pain in the **** too). Some of the songs, you can see in explorer IF you set the MP3 player to Autodetect. The rest of the songs you can see if you switch to MSC.
So to be able to see all of the songs, I need to switch from one to another. I suppose that if I reformat the mp3 player (after having backed up all songs). Then I can choose just one mode to upload the songs.
I'm guessing that it has to do with differences with rhapsody, windows music player from XP and windows music player from Vista. But not sure.
Go to MENU>> Settings>> USB >> and switch between 'auto detect' and MSC.

I have the same problem, and the proposed solution doesn't work. To clarify, there can be audio files on the device that are invisible to Widows Explorer and WMP (I am using XP), although they are still there when you use the player. These are visible in plaintext in the file MTABLE.SYS but if you edit it with, say, Notepad, the device rebuilds the MTABLE.SYS file with all the files you would like to delete. If you check the properties of the MUSIC folder only the visible files show up, and deleting that folder along with RECORD and AUDIBLE does no good whatsoever. Probably related is the fact that in WMP the Sync view "Sansa m250" device reports sucessful "Sync Results" but "Artist","Album","Songs", etc all declare "there are no files on this device" even when you've just synced non-invisible (deletable) files to the device. Apparently the device has a proprietary file system and is faking, unsucessfully, its responses to the applicable system calls. Or somesuch screwup.
