Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sandisk 250 on the screen of my sandisk 250 it states its connected to my computer when i have it plugged in. when i open rhapsody it doesn't show that a device is connected. When i look at my computer it doesn't show that the sandisk is connected. When i plug another mp3 player into the same usb port it comes up on my computer and rhapsody. This sandisk is fairly new so it shouldn't have any problems. i've also tried different usb ports and different usb wires... will someone please help me!!!

Trying to synch my SanDisk MP3 player to Rhapsody


This player is a little goofy. The normal method to synchronize is through Windows Media Player. But if you go for the Rhapsody subscription, you have to also sync the device through Rhapsody.

How to format raw sandisk 250 hard drive with window xp.i couldnot use this mp3 player after i used this device to transfer files from one computer to the other.after transferring the file,i deleted the...


Alright, plug the player in with your USB cable.

Open "My Computer" and find in on the list of drives and CD-Roms. It will be called something like "Audio Device" or "Removable Storage Device". Make sure you find the correctly icon for the player.

Right click the player then select the format option. You'll probably want to use a FAT32 format as it is the usual format for MP3 players and flash drives of the like. This will totally erase any files on the player, so be forewarned before you complete this.

Raw file system is basically the media in it's standard state. All the information is recorded as zero's and this is how your computer is seeing it. It is either reporting incorrectly due to bad file system error, or simple was formatted incorrectly.

Give that a try, let me know what happens. :) Hope it helps.

Rhapsody


You need to format the device to remove the preloaded content. This will also remove any mysic you have transferred onto it. First, change the device to Rhapsody Mode. Settings>Mode or USB Mode>Rhapsody. Then connect the device to your computer. Verify the device says "connected". Then open up the Computer Management on your Computer. Right Click on My Computer, Select Manage, on the left side of the Computer Management window, select Disk Management. Then on the right side at the top you will see the 'C' Drive and under that the Sansa e260 as well. Right click on the Sansa and select "format", dont check anything on the next screen, just press Start, or OK. Your device is now empty. Best of Luck.

Sansae200 rhapsody


If your device is indeed a Rhapsody branded version, the recovery tool you have WILL NOT WORK. You need to download the Rhapsody version firmware, located here; http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/rhapsody-1.0.2.21.zip Then put the device into recovery mode: - power device off (press and hold power for 20 seconds) - slide the hold button into hold - press and hold record button while connecting device to computer (keep holding it until you see New Hardware Found on PC) Then "unzip" the software from the link, inside you will see PP5022.mi4. Open up My Computer, in there you will see 16MB format, drag and drop the pp5022.mi4 file into this drive. Unplug the device and allow it to restart. DO NOT PRESS ANY BUTTONS until it is complete. If the issue persists, try it again. It may take 3 or 4 tries. If that doesnt work, you need to format the device. Hit me back and ill tell you how to do that. Best of Luck.
