Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)
I bought this model mainly to download and listen to books on tape from the state library website. After much upgrading on my computer I finally managed to download two books and have been listening to one. But whenever I start back up after stopping, I'm not in the right spot. Fast forwarding and reminding does not help as it starts out O.K., going slowly enough to read the minutes, and then skips back or forward to the next part, even if I release the "button". So I'm listening to a book not knowing how much I've missed. Please help! Thank you.
I use a Creative Zen V Plus, but have a similar problem.
First, an explanation: the issue is probably with the timecode in the audio track. This can happen when the audio file is created on a computer. The audiobook was likely "ripped" to a file from the original audiobook CD, and your player may not like the format the file is in. The best solution in this case is to recreate the audio files yourself. First remove all of the files from your Sansa for that particular book. Then use CD-burning software on your computer to create an audio CD (not a data CD!) from the files you got from the library. Finally, use the software that came with your Sansa to transfer the audio CD back to your Sansa. This way you know you are getting a correct format on your player.
If you have an additional issue (like me) where the tracks are too long and go back to the beginning every time you turn your player off, you may have to use an audio editor such as Audacity to chop the long tracks up into smaller tracks, but this is quite time consuming. It is best to acquire audiobooks in smaller tracks in the first place. This is the problem I have been faced with while using Audible.com to listen to audiobooks.
