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!

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!

Yes that's what I'm using right now, you should load the software that came with the player if you have and simply use Windows Media Player to create a library of songs from which to choose, when your ready connect your device and clisk on the SYNC tab then this will allow you to pick songs or whole albums to the right sync column, when this has everything you want click the START SYNC tab and it all will load into your player.
The latest version of the Sansa E250 only has one mode... MTP. USB mode has been removed. My windows XP laptop would see the device and install it fine, but Media Player, Yahoo Music, and any other software would not recognize the MTP device until I installed Windows Media Player 11.
Once installed, even Yahoo Jukebox recognized the device.
I returned 1 & got a new one before I tried this solution. So if you're having a similar issue, don't return it until you've tried the latest version of WMP.
I am running a Sansa and an Ipod simultaneosuly with no conflict, so the problem is definitely with the Sansa.
Try this: disconnect the player from the
computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to
the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume +
button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into
recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found
New Hardware Wizard.
I had the same issue. Brand new Sansa e250 player. My XP SP2 computer would not recognize it. I updated my Windows Media player to version 10. Bingo, all is working now. I previously had version 9. Good luck!
