Question about SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

No playlist on computer

When I hook my mp3 to the computer through usb, the computer recognizes it but does not allow me to access the music that I have already downloaded on the mp3. I can listen to it, but I cannot access it to change or add additional files. It allows me to see the internal memory - which shows to be blank? I have been able to access the files in the past - what could have changed?

Hi, Below is a reply to a posting pf a similar unit = This is a common problem with MP3 players with almost a full memory. Apparently, the firmware gets messed up and eventually losses recognition of its purpose or some of the files it keeps. Sandisk has anticipated this problem and has posted online utilities just for this purpose. They are available at > http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDown... Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

How to do playlist on the s100

Hi, You can do play list from your PC. By connecting your MP3 player to the PC through Usb cable..

Things You'll Need:

* Computer
* Media player
* Digital music files

Creating a playlist on your computer is an easy way to organize your music. Playlists allow you to organize music by different artists or different genres. More advanced playlists can even sort your music based on when it was added or how often you play a particular song. Creating a playlist is an easy task regardless of the media player you use to play your music.



Determine what songs you would like to add to your playlist.


Create a new playlist in your media player. Depending on your media player, this step will vary. There is usually a "Create Playlist" button that you can click to create a new playlist. In iTunes, this button is on the bottom lower left corner. In Winamp, click the "View" menu and select "Playlist Editor".


Select the songs that you want in your playlist from a new Windows Explorer window. If you are using a Macintosh computer, select the songs from a new Finder window. You can hold down CTRL to select multiple tracks. Drag and drop these selected songs into the new playlist you have just created.


Save the playlist you have just created. Most media players have a "Save Playlist" button. Other media players such as iTunes will automatically save the playlist for you when you first create it. In Winamp, click the "Manage Playlist" button in the bottom right corner. In the following context menu, click "Save Playlist". Name the playlist whatever you want and then choose where you want it to be saved.

Have a nice day....

How do we add music to the LG xenon, i hooked up the USB cord into the comptuer and stuff, but it wont let me add the music, soo how do we do that ? i dont want to go buy a memory card cause i jsut go the...

[Extra Hardwares Needed] 1. MicroSD card 2. "Micro-B" USB data cable
[Procedure - either PC or Mac] 1. Disconnect USB cable (if you connected already) 2. In Xenon phone Settings -> More -> Connection -> USB Connection -> (select) Mass Storage Note: If you don't do this, you will get an error message "Unable to use liscense. TRy again after formatting memory card." 3. Insert MicroSD card into Xenon phone slot 4. Connect Xenon phone to PC (or Mac) using USB cable 5. If MicroSD is not accessible as a disk drive, then (1) remove the MicroSD from Xenon (2) format the MicroSD from PC (3) retry step# 3 & 4 6. You can drag & drop your folders and/or files (.mp3 or .m4a only) into the MicroSD card 7. Disconnect Xenon phone from PC then go to "AT&T Music" -> "Music Player" Note: All features work except for "Playlists" 8. If you want "Playlists", you need to use Windows Media Player and sync. iTunes doesn't work since it doesn't allow other devices than iPod. This means that you cannot use Mac to create/sync the playlist.

Naxa nx-134

Yeah, I just went up and down their website. They are one of the few that don't post their manuals online. Many mp3 players have a "playlist on the go" feature (or some other such moniker) that allows you to create a playlist from the mp3 player itself, but will not transfer playlists properly from Windows Media Player. Other mp3 players require a firmware upgrade to fix the issue. Unless your manual states something specific about playlist transfer, I would go ahead and call Naxa to get clarification on this. Let us know what they say. Oh wait - they don't have a phone number. Try their e-mail support at [email protected]. Good luck!

Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -

I had the same problem, all you have to do is first turn on the Mp3.Then go to settings. Then go down to USB mode. It will probably say, auto detect.But instead scroll down to MSC. If that doesn't work try MTP.

How do i make a playlist

When you hook the USB to the computer and your philips MP3 player a screen will pop up on your desktop asking you to chose an option. Scroll down to the option: view files. From there you can look at what is in each file on your MP3 player. Click on the Playlists File. Once in that folder you want to right click the mouse and scroll down to new folder and chose it. Then you will name the folder (playlist). From there you open the music file on your computer with all your saved music and transfer the music from your computer onto the playlist by dragging the songs back and forth. When you want to access your playlist you will need to go to the folders option on the main menu of your mp3 player and select your playlist from there. If you go to music and chose the playlist option there it will not show your playlists there for some odd reason. Hope this is somewhat helpful.
