Question about SanDisk Sansa e130 MP3 Player

Open Question

Downloading songs I can't figure out how to load songs onto my mp3 so that the artist, album, and title comes up. they all show as unknown.the only way I know how to download is to copy music files from my computer to the mp3 file. I don't think my mp3 is broken, I just lost the manual and don't know how to do it.

You can plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. If this doesn't work, then call me to help you any further. Ask for Maxwell at 1-(239)-945-0583. Your fixer, Wild2DMaxx

SOURCE: SanDisk Sansa C250 - How do I rename songs?

You can go to the file directly and rename it if Windows Media Player wont allow it.

The file should be located in the My Music Folder.

Right Click on the track and select Properties>Summary Tab. Then you can edit any of the fields you want.

The next time you open Windows Media Player, the changes will be there.




Best of Luck.

Don't rip the CDs with Media Player. Use Sansa software.

SOURCE: "unknown" album or artist

If you're using MSC mode (moving files via explorer), I believe the player ignores the directory structure for the most part, and uses the MP3 tags. I've had very good success using Media Monkey (which is freeware) to group the songs, and then transferring from there, in MTP mode.

I have a Coby MP620-8G mp3 player. For some reason, I've been getting a whole bunch (at least 15 albums) of my artists thrown into the Unknown Artist category, making it difficult to find songs. In my...

I just had this problem as well. Find one of the files that is showing up on the MP3 player as "Unknown Artist" in your iTunes library. Right click that song/file and click "Get Info". You'll most likely find that the song is an "ACC Audio File" which happens often when you copy CDs or download from the iTunes Store. Close the info window about the song and then you can select the entire album or individual songs from your iTunes playlist that are showing up as "Unknown Artist". Once all the songs that you need are selected, right click again and select "Create MP3 Version". This will create a duplicate, however, so you'll want to go back to the main library in iTunes (or stay there if you are already there) and then remove the original "ACC" versions. You can, if you'd like, keep them on your hard drive, but you really don't need them because MP3 is the standard. From here you can remove those files from the Coby MP3 player and replace them with the new MP3 versions you have created in iTunes.
I hope this helps!

All downloaded music is "unknown" artist, title etc.

Hey, I am not sure about ubunta but in Windows, you need a program that "tags" the MP3. Just google MP3 tag editor and you will find some programs that do this. Again, not sure about ubunta but give it a shot. What this program does is let you edit the MP3 to the fullest. Song title, artist, album, everything...Check it out....

Insignia sport 4 gig wont organize by artist

You will need to right click on the song file to see if the ID3 information is present.

Right-click, Properties, Summary tab.

You shoudl see a list of fields that you can populate manually, or you can try loading your audio files into a media manger program like iTunes, Media Monkey, WMP, etc and insure your song titles and album names are correct in the ID3 tag fields. Then, your files will appear correctly on your player.

Hope this helps!

Unknown songs and artists

You will have to take them off the player,
rip your cd with media player, then BEFORE you sync them to the player, rightclick on the song, choose Advance Tag Editor and rename the song, artist, genre, then you can sync them over with title and name locked in the file.
