One or more properties outside of device limits?

I have downloaded a whole bunch of mp3 songs to my PC but when I try to transfer them to my SAnsa 250 I get a message telling me that I have to use a program to convert them - otherwise they will not be recognised? Please help! thanx!

    I, too, have the exact same problem. This never happened before. Also, when I try to download a song that is already on the mp3 (just to check), it says the same error message.

After searching other forums, I found a solution to this particular problem. It occurs when updating to Media Player 11. Click here for the solution and follow the directions exactly. It does work--I just tried it:

How do I download music to my Sansa Clip MP3 Player


First, you have songs into your computer. Then, plug the device to computer and use one of two ways to download music to your Sansa Clip:
1. Select songs you want transfer, drag & drop them into Music folder in the device.
2. Use Windows Media Player: plug device to pc, open windows media player, click on Sync tab, drag and drop songs selected to Sync List space (on the right side of wmp), click on Start Sync button to transfer.
Good luck

Common problem with this unit - if you have a good virus protection program, use Limewire and only download tracks that are in mp3 format

read your manual (the whole thing if you have to then maybe you'll get a better understanding on how to function the MP3 player) if you dont get it then repost your message again saying you read the manual then help with what ever you need and give even more detail on how the mp3 player funtions on the outside

Sansa m250 2GB file adding problems


Can't create directories directly on the m250. I've got about 1000 songs loaded (already broken into subdirectories) that take up 800 MB and the device claims that it's full. (Firmware is also updated to 4.1.08A)

Downloading from Itunes


Your Itunes library may consist of MP4 (Itunes format) files, WAV files, and MP3 files. If you're attempting to transfer MP4 files to your MP3 player, then no it will not work. You'll need to convert them to MP3 format first.

Here's the really bad news...the only way to convert an ITunes MP4 song is to first burn it to a CD. Then you need software to pull the song from the burned CD back into your computer in whatever format you choose. Nero is an example of software that will accomplish this. I use rewritable CD's to do this so you don't waste a bunch of disks.

This was by design from your friends at Apple.

Hope this helps.
