Question about SanDisk Sansa e130 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I have ripped a 2 disc set of The Phantom of the Opera into Windows Media Player. I created a playlist of both discs and synced it to the SD card for my e130 Sandisk. Even though shuffle is off, it shuffles. How can I fix this?

    Addendum: after removing the battery and waiting a while, the e130 recognized The Phantom of the Opera (2 discs), but the songs are in alphabetical order. This is the problem I've been wrestling with. It happened on other 2 disc albums, even if I installed only one disc. Help, please.

Try renaming the tracks with sequential numbers, this might fix this.

    I tried that and it didn't work. I've noticed a comment that the e130 doesn't support "playlists". Hmmmm. So I used Explore and dragged the two discs onto the SDcard. They are there and I can play them in Windows Media Player, but the e130 doesn't show them.

    If you have Win7, right click on each track on your PC, EDIT SONG INFORMATION, and see if you can insert a track number. Then re-load into the Sansa and see if they now play in sequence. Hope this tip helps.

    If you don't have Windows 7, you can download free ID3 tagging software.
    I also found this on another site:
    "do a google search for "sansa sandisk firmware upgrade," It does advise to do the upgrade and then load the songs and apparently this does fix the problem. After the upgrade, you can apparently use playlists. Let us know if this helps.

How do you download music to an mp3 player from a cd?


Hello,

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.

When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.

If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

When needing more help, don't hesitate to write a comment in this reply.

How do I sync music to my Droid from Windows Media playlist? I've ripped and burned but it won't allow the sync from that site, Thanks


Hmm, try this: Either use or buy (for around $2.00 from ebay sellers) a Data cable for the Droid (standard mini-usb plug) and sync it like that.

How do I get the music from my lap top to my mp3


Connect it to your computer via the usb cable (you have already done). Using Windows Media Player, press sync and create a sync list, press start sync and it will transfer them to your MP3. REMEMBER, use the safe hardware removal mode when taking off your MP3 and do not try to operate it whilst still attached to the computer.

For deleting files connect your player with the computer.
When running Windows Media Player 11:

1. Check the automatic SYNC routine for your player.
How to get to the SET UP SYNC
When viewing WMP11 in full mode select SYNC or LIBRARY in the top of WMP11, seeing the Sansa player listed on the left.
Right click on the player and select SET UP SYNC... to go to the SYNC options.

When "Sync this device automatically" is selected, all playlist in the computers' Library will be transferred to the player again, even the previous deleted files. Disable this function to prevent unwanted SYNC.

2. Remove playlists from the library in set up sync, to get the playlists you would like to keep on the player.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

Sansa m250 playlists


First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.


To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Downloading music


I have the same one. I transfer all my songs to Windows Media Player and save them to a playlist on it. I go to the sync mode on Windows Media Player, click and drag my playlist, and start sync. Depending on how fast your modem is, it should take anywhere between 2-5 minutes.
