I have purchased 3 of these players for my children and husband. I was able to download the music fine with no problems. The problem is that 3 months later it will still turn on but nothing will play. It still only has the first free song showing with nothing else available to play. also am unavailable to hear anything or adjust volume. I find it ammusing that walmart will only give me a phone number to use to get help that does not work with the mp3 and lacks customer support.

Re: cannot use mp3
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer
itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up
erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as
new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override
the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be
reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware
upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites. WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or
FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right
click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to
Windows-based computers. You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself: Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media
Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath
the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking
on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of
Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select
"Format." - this should erase everything. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player.
For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

My children received polaroid pmp80-2 mp3 players for christmas from my ex-husband and they were working fine for a few days now only 1 works. The other 2 wont even turn on and it's like the software has been erased from them. what do i do to fix this problem?
There is no AAC firmware upgrade. These players are not compatible with AAC (iTunes) format. Most non-iPod players are incompatible, but there are a few exceptions here and there. The box on the player has to list AAC, and it can't have a proviso attached to the AAC, such as "non-protected" AAC. The cashiers at the places that sell them don't know jack about compatibility, usually.
My husband says some times the simple solution is the best. Try this, it worked for me.
1) download your music to your computer in mp3 format (when your program asks 'SAVE AS' you pick MP3 forrmat.
2) import the music to the MP3 program from the program you downloaded to
3) import to your player.
I use Rhapsody with Vista. You need to go to Rhapsody's website (or Best Buy Digital Music Store, which runs the same software) and download the updated version, which will work just fine.
Purchased music from iTunes can be put on Sansa players as well when you set-up Rhapsody to manage your music. Have the program detect your music library and then all you have to do is drag and drop to your MP3 player.
umm bad idea to throw the MANUAS. but some websites have downloadable manuals just go on google and look for a site. if not u can download a program caled UTORRENT, open the program go in the search box, and type in manuals,pick the brand and you cud get it
Make sure they are charged and that the music you loaded onto them is in a appropriate format and also make sure that the files were not copy protected this should not be a problem, if you used windows media player 10 or 11 most mp3 players including this one (I checked) require using this software to sync you can't just drag music on unfortunately.
You could try opening the folder(s) with your saved music and highlight all the ones you want to transfer to your mp3 player and then right click on one of the highlighted files, left click on Copy, then go to My Computer > Sansa e250 mp3 player should be listed in there, double click on it, then right click in a open white area and left click Paste. It should copy the music right to your player. You could also try using Rhapsody and import your music into it. I use Rhapsody for transferring music to my e250 Sansa mp3 player.
