"Everythings great except for 1 major software problem"1.5 starson by jasdub32
Pros: Great Appeal, Ease of Use, Fluid
Cons: Does not recognize files
Summary: Cnet says the Samsung E250 has everything, and I couldn't agree more, except for one major factor. Some songs that are loaded onto the system are later self deleted or unrecognizable. For example, songs that are loaded and recognizable from windows platform, are nonexistent when accessing from the mp3 player. I've own 3 Creatives, an earlier sandisk, and a ipod and never ran across this. This is extremely horrible and I'm most definitely going to return this.Updated
At first I thought this was a great player. I soon caught on to the fact mp3s loaded on the sandisk are not always present while accessing the music list. I loaded 56 songs on there through the pc transfering process, then later listen to the sandisk player and noticed many of the songs were completely missing! no where to be found whatsoever, in whatever folder, unknown artist, etc etc, "Missing in action."
The first one I returned and the second one had the same problem. Also, the songs are random, and I tested by reloaded the same songs that were missing the first time, without changing anything, and they would show up. So this is completely random, which makes the software worst.
I'm returning this and never buying a Sandisk again. One word. AbysmalUpdated
I finally contacted Sandisk by phone and was able to fix the problem by simply updating the firmware. So all the files are here and everything's fine. I'm estatic! I now bump this player up to a rating of 9
