Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

How do I create my own "Albums" on Sansa E250, Windows Media Player

I'm trying to figure out how to create my own "Albums" that will be recognized by the Sansa so that I can group radio programs and podcasts. Right now, every file loads as a separate album, even though I have them organized into separate files on my computer. I tried making a new folder for each "Album" using the MTP mode on the Sansa, but that did not work. I also tried using Windows Media Player to sync using Sansa's MSC mode. Windows Media Player shows each file as an Album that contains only one "song." After reading a little about ID tags, I found a setting in ReplayAV (I use this to capture live radio broadcasts) to create Tags, thinking this would cause the files with the same Tag to be grouped as an album, but it did not make any difference. Thanks for all suggestions!

    Littel, thanks!!! I meant to return earlier and post that this worked, but was so excited about editing the tags under properties that I forgot.

    This works beautifully and gives me a lot of control to organize music and radio shows, and I presume, later on podcasts as well.

I'd say try going into properties of the file your are trying to transfer into your MP3. Highlight all of the songs you want on the same album. You will then need to right click on them to go into the properties menu. Once you are there go to the Summary Tab, you will need to enter under "Album Title", the same title for all of the music you want to group. This should then in turn create an album with all of your favorite songs on your MP3 player. Good luck!

1) You need to set the "tags" in the music files ... artist, album and song name. I would suggest opening up the files in MediaMonkey, which will let you edit the tags.

2) After you download the podcasts with MediaMonkey, you need to find out where they exist on your disk. Then, copy them to your Clip using Windows Explorer.

How do you place a podcast (MP3) into the podcast folder on the Sansa View?


Make sure you're Sansa is in MSC mode (go to settings/options, then "system settings", then "USB Mode", then MSC -- this option is available if you've updated your firmware to v01.03.02a). Connect your Sansa via USB cable and then open "My Computer", double-click on the Sansa View icon and create a new folder called "PODCAST". Place Podcasts in this folder, then close the window and "safely" remove your Sansa from the USB port. After the Sansa refreshes itself, go to "MUSIC" then "PODCASTS" and you should see your file(s)!

Placing mp3 podcasts in the podcast folder


Create a folder on your View (in MSC mode) named "PODCAST". DO NOT put it in your MUSIC folder, but in the root directory. Place your Podcasts in there and disconnect your Sansa. After it refreshes you'll find your Podcasts under "Music\Podcasts" on your View :)

The podcats that aren't recognized may be in AAC instead of Mp3 format. Use Media Monkey or some other free software to convert them to mp3 format.

Deleting music on sansa e200


My solution would that you uncheck the albums from the Program that you use to sync your music or vids. Usually that means unchecking song by song or it all depends on how you have your files organized. See if that helps
