Set it to MSC mode

Settings>USB Mode>MSC
The player default is MTP. Unless you are using MediaMonkey or WMP to catalog all of your files. MSC allows quick and easy data transfer.

Wow. $20 for that applesauce stuff. Google: Novus plastic polish #2 (or #1 if you have deep scratches.) Here's a place that sells it for $6: http://stealthhome.stores.yahoo.net/noplpo28ozbo.html...

I think people are making too big a deal about this 'new' vs 'old' thing. It may be that the Rhapsody version is the different model. Would you pay $43 more for the 'new' version with Rhapsody...

You can probably find a plastic polish at a variety or a hardware store. Finding it at that store is the problem. They might sell a polish to clean CD's for instance. You'll have to do some asking...

Plastic polish

Toothpaste is too abrasive. It will make new scratches and leave the finish dull looking. Use Novus #2 (Fine) scratch remover. http://www.novuspolish.com/

I guess I've never seen this 'soft plastic' scroll wheel version as I've never been interested in the Rhapsody version. The regular e280 works just fine though and at a price of $107 it's a great...

Thanks for this link. I ordered one today. With shipping of $7 it comes to about $15 which is pretty good for a leather case. Another leather case I was looking at lacked the hole for the menu button.

It's really hard to say. It doesn't feel more recessed than my previous player but I don't remember those ridges being on the scroll wheel. At this price though I'm not picky. At the current volume...

I think WMA's are like MP3's in the way they handle tags. It is a good idea to try out a few files before you do rename them all. You could automate this whole process somewhat by using a renaming...

I'm not sure. The player may recognize the Album Art.jpg file on it's own. I kind of think it will so you may have to load one album as an experiment to see. Yes it has to be Album Art.jpg with the...

Note that it's actually sold by 'Electronica direct.' Ever heard of them? Yeah, nobody has. Personally I want to know the dealer just in case I need to return it.

Basic instructions (that SanDisk should have written.)

Make the whole thing easy on yourself. (Well as easy as it gets with mp3 players.)
1. Don't use any music management software. The e200 series can be used as an MSC (Mass storage device). Go to...

I get most of my album art from Amazon and they are usually 500x500. Still very small files (under 100k) and I haven't had any problems with them.

Why are you reluctant to upgrade to 1.02.15? Try it and see if the volume is different. You can always go back to 1.02.12 because it's available at the SanDisk site.
