When I plug my Sansa e250 into my computer and sync it with WMP 11 I can only add songs to the player. When I try and remove them, media player says that there are no songs added to the device yet. My computer only recognizes it when it's in MSC mode, and I have the latest firmware. Anybody have any ideas?
You have to first change the USB mode on the player to MTP (as opposed to MSC). Forget using the Windows Media Player (yeah, I know). Go to Explorer, go to drive E or whatever your Sansa is listed as....open it and it will show different types of folders. Go to MUSIC folder. The songs are listed and you can delete, e.g. delete mp3 and keep WMA of the same song, or whatever else you want to delete.

open WMP (windows Media player)... import what songs/albums into WMP. connect your mp3 to you computer. WMP should recognize it if it is a sansa. Highlight what songs you want right click ...add.. to sync list. or you can make a sync list on the right hand side of the screen and drag and drop the songs you want on your mp3 player ... when you have the ones you want click on the sync button and those songs will xfr to the player
use windows media player... open WMP connect your player it should recognize it... use this to sync music to your sansa...you highlight the songs in WMP right click ... go to add music .. select sync .. once you get the songs into a sync list ... you just sync the sansa...
1. Are you using Windows Media Player 11 ?
2. Can you see the Sansa e250 connected in the sync mode ?
If no: install and update WMP11
3. Make "new playlist" in the <Library> or <Sync> mode
of WMP 11; screen left side.
3.1 Save "new playlist" in WMP11; screen right side.
4. Put in <Sync> mode your playlist under the player: The player
should be connected showing in WMP11. Start synchronizing.
Leave the player connected until <Sync> is ready.
Hi Janworks4u. Question for you... Did your mp3 work fine with WMP 10? I ask because WMP 11 is known for causing problems w/mp3 players. You can try reverting to WMP 10 to see if that fixes your problem. To do this:
click START, click on CONTROL PANEL, ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS (look at the top center of the Add or Remove Programs box that pops up for a little square you can click on that says "show updates." Click that box and then scroll down to WMP 11. Click to change/remove. A box will pop up confirming that you will revert to WMP 10. NOTE THIS WILL NOTE DELETE ANYTHING FROM YOUR COMPUTER! All of your music that is in WMP 11 will still be there in WMP 10!
Now you can try to load your songs back on through WMP 10 and hopefully it'll work for you. Good luck!
1. Connect The Player.
2. Open Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 or Higher.
3. It detects the Player. 4. Click the Sync Tab on (WMP)
5. Download The Songs you want and place them in the open area where it says to put them.
6. Then Click the Synchronize Button
7. It then downloads the songs.
8. Click the Disconnect Button on the Right Bottom hand side and Disconnect.
