I bought it 2 weeks ago...i installed the easy start installation cd that came with it...i pluged in the mp3 through the USB port in the back of my PC..nothing happens...then a couple minutes later the "safely remove device" icon comes up at right hand corner of the start menu options...i click on it and nothing appears on that window. my last and final try was going to the control panel, i clicked on portable devices and it says there aren't none so please tell me what to do..i mean ive tried everything..my sansa m250 just doesnt come up on my PC...please help!!!!!!
Try this ... Press Menu button, Go to Settings, Go to USB, Highlight MSC and press the white button. Now, connect it back to your computer and see in Explorer if it picks it up as a separate drive labeled SANSA.
Also, make sure you are loading songs into a separate folder. I named my folder TUNES.

For the Sansa m250 you do not need a cd. Just download the manual, stick a triple A battery in, plug it into your computer and upload your music. Then read the manual to see the various functions for each button. Enjoy
Go to the menu in you mp3 player. In the menu, under settings, make sure that "advanced" is set to off. Then it should show that the USB is MSC, not MTP, and you should be able to view your songs when you hook back up to the computer.
