Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

3 Answers

My sansa keepz bringing up songs as bad tracks or unknowns then doesnt play them

Whenever i put new songs on my sansa, some songs come up as unknown and dont play...while others do play...they are all mp3 formatted so i dont understand why some play and some don't. Then recently almost every other song is coming up as a bad track....when they worked on the player before...and they work fine on the computer. I asked someone close to me, who also has the same player that i do if she was experiencing these problems and she said yes. so i dont know how to fix this....i've tired taking everything off the sansa then putting them back on...but nothing has helped.....maybe you can help...please!!!!!!!

It corrupts the files on your player usually if your very low on space near the limit or if I believe you have it in your pocket against other electronic devices. The solution is to just format your player like would a hard drive or USB key on your computer. After that unplug it from your computer and let it restart then plug it back in and put your songs back on. Basically Sandisk sucks a55 when it comes to mp3 players. Ive had this problem and other problems ALOT. This is the worst piece of crap ever made. ONLY BUY FROM CREATIVE LABS next time.

I'm having this problem too. what i think is happening is you took the song off the player. However, the it is not completly off of the player. i.e. song info still on their. song name, artist, album ect. i just took everything off of my player. it says 1/467 songs on their but all say bad track. thats the problem now about that solution, i'm looking into it. but ya if you have any problems. hit me up at [email protected] or MXRIDER007R on aim.

When I play a song on my mp3 player, the screen displays "unknown."

Mp3 players are programmed to read original & copied songs when you download music into your Mp3. if you copy an original CD (music) to your Mp3, the songs will be displayed along with all the infos of that song, i.e. artist, track #, year,etc. if you copy a CD which contains copied songs from other originals, it will display "UNKNOWN" because original CD's have their own trademarks that distinguishes them from copied CD's or any other CD for that matter...

E260 player won't read some songs

Check if the size of the disk is actually what they say it is because I have seen where 1gb was written on an mp3 player whereas it was stretched, e.g, 128mb might be stretched to 1gb, so whenever you put songs that exceeds 128mb the other ones will not play at all. It has happened to me several times.

You should try taking the battery out. if you unscrew the for screws on the back there will be a battery just take that out and put it back in this should delete everything if it doesnt then i dont know. dont worry about takeing it apart your only takeing the back off to where the battery is. just like your cell phone.

Mp3 in as "unknown". Won't play

download Switch by searching for it on google...then you can change the formats of your songs to anything you like and you can change how big the file gets converted to!!!


you can make them pretty small and then you can fit about 2,000 songs on a 2 GB!


hope this helps!

don't worry Switch does not give you spyware1.gif or viruses1.gif.. I checked! :]


this will "clean up" the files you want to put on your sansa...

it really works!! AND ITS FREEEEEE
