Dates on music uploads from Windows Media player to device are skewed.
Ive got the sansa e280. I cannot get my music files to recognize the correct date. Most files are loading onto the device as year 2097 and 2098. I have tried to drag and drop the individual dates into the sync file, and it seemed to have worked until the device synced again. Yikes!
I also noticed the device does not show all the playlists that are illustrated under the device heading on Media Player. Any suggestions?
Another thing... I set up an "auto playlist" in MP, and it does not have any tunes associated with it, nor did it show up on the device. My criteria is after 1990 and before 2000.

Re: dates on music uploads from Windows Media player to...
Select all music while on you windows and right click on them , then go to "Summary" tab. Check if your music's dates are right.
If not Ok. then check the date settings with your Sansa e280.
If all dates are set .. then you should have the your music working fine.
Not working ? I recommend a firmware update.

connect it to the computer ..and after that open my computer folder and you willfind it like a drive ..(probably named removable disk ..or removable storage device ..) when you open that folder you will have all the music stored in there ..like in a regular folder..you can also add or remove files by copy them and paste into or delete from .. if you want them to be played into windows media player ..just see the task aside (left ) called play all...and they will be added to the windows media player play-list .. or ..go back ..to the drive icon into my computer ..and right click on it ..and choose play with...and select the player you want..
Make sure your Rhapsody subscription is paid and up to date - if it ever lapses you will lose the songs. also, check out the License tab under properties for the songs that failed - the license may have a fixed-term/expiration date and can no longer be synced without paying $$. Rhapsody sucks like that.
I don't know if you've inadvertently deleted the music folder, but that's what I did, when I deleted all the folders by mistake, thank heavens for in-store warrenty, they replaced it with another one. What I noticed on my replacement is synchronizing with media player doesn't work, it creates ghost folders and thinks music is there when it isn't, I don't understand it.
Solution: open two windows for my music and sansa e280 music, then just drag and drop the folders;
what I noticed is that in my music the folders are named by artist, and I prefer to see them by album, but when I view them in the player, I see the albums with the tracks in the right order.
You need to reinstall the firmware, which can be found on Sansa's site. If this is not an option, which it likely is NOT, you need to send the device out via the MFG warranty, or just send it to the MFG. If you look into the files on this device, it has a VERY VERY bad history with performance on this site.
I hope this helps! problem solved!
