Unknown album, unknown artist Sandisk m260 Win Media Player

by newburyfruit / May 3, 2006 3:07 AM PDT

I had a bunch of mp3 in my computer, which had no album, artist or song information. Using WMP I was able to retrieve album, artist and song names and all this information is now in my WMP library. Two issues:

1. How do I get this information from WMP into the original folders where I had the mp3s stored before I searched for the info?

2. When I copy to my device (Sandisk m260) the player displays unknow artist, aunknown album, the only thing that gets transferred is the track number. I have installed the firmware update, I have made sure to check the appropriate boxes in WMP under "Tools" "Options" "Rip music" "File Name"

Please can somebody help me?

help with m260

If you're currently in MTP mode, then you may want to try MSC mode. First format the player to erase the songs with no tags. Do this by going to the Sync tab in WMP, then click the "format storage media" button all the way to the right.

Switch the player to MSC mode, then transfer the songs to the player again.

If it still doesn't work, you may need the newest firmware update, which is 2.2.5. Send an e-mail to ProductSupport@sandisk.com and ask for the m260 firmware update.

M260 help

How do you make the "format media" icon active? I cannot click on mine and am having the same difficulty, among others. I am using Widows XP home if that makes a difference. This thing is so complicated I am ready to take it back. I am ready to delete everything and start all over. I tried to do this but I cannot get the empty playlists off of my mp3...any ideas? Any ideas on how to get the playlists into the mp3 with the songs intact? I don't want to have to sort through 500 songs to find the one I want to listen to....I appreciate any help that you can give!!!!! Jen

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
