Micro sd memory card

How do you get the memory card to work on the sansa e250? I just got a 6 gb sandisk memory card and it doesnt show up when I want to add songs to my mp3 player.

    Same as other post. I can not seem to 'see' MP3 or MOV files that are on my MiniSD card. I can try to reformat the card to see if this may help, but I can see it when plugged into the PC. Thanks.

    i've followed all the instructions here for solutions 1 and 2, and discovered something. When I right clicked on my computer, and went to manage, my computer has given the memory card it's own removable disk slot. This doesn't register with the Sansa media converter, and will not allow me to load info on it. Even when I click on the removable disk space, it says to insert a disk into the drive. I know that the card reader works, because I placed my mini sd from my phone in there and it played the music that was stored. I'm trying to place video on it, but it won't do either video or audio. Help!!

Do you have a card reader on your pc? plug it in, open my computer, do you see the card there? if no.

Right click my computer icon on desktop or in start menu, select manage, on the left side select disk management, find the storage card from the drive list, right click create partition or Format, I would go with fat32 format to be sure. then you should see it on the computer asuming if you see the card in disk management but not in my computer. if you don't see the card in disk management and this is a new card. something is wrong, possibly the card reader is broken or there is another issue with your pc, or possibly your sansa has a faulty card slot which has caused the issue. It should work plug and play basicly.

I had this problem too. But i found out that you need to change the USB Settings in the Player to MSC and then the SD card will come up as an another drive.
Hope this helps.

I added a 2gb mirco SD card to my Sansa e270 6.0gb player, but the memory is still only showing 10mb of the original 6.0 gb available for use. How do I get the Sansa to recognize and use the 2 gb mirco SD...


Hi,when you purchase a new micro SD card before use, youwill need to format the memory card so that you will be able to know the actual size of the Micro SD card by checking the details after formatting it.

After formatting the micro SD card and checking the details, if you still do not see the accurate size which is about 1.88mb or the about, that means the micro SD card you bought needs to be replaced. Not a good one.

Have a nice day.

Why is there no manual with my sansa fuze


Hello,

For the Sansa Fuze there's a manual available in pdf format on the Sandisk support site:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/FUZE/fuze_userguide_en.pdf
Save this file to a location on your computer for later use.

When you explore "My Computer" the micro SD card with x GB memory, should be available as an extra external drive.
This drive will show up as an extra drive letter with a total capacity of x GB .

My sansa player does not recognize a micro sd when its inserted


Sorry, it doesn't work that way. You can use a separate card reader to put files onto the microSD card. When the card is installed into the Sansa, the Sansa will see the additional music.

Sansa mp3 player could not detect micro sd add on card


I believe you can fix it by going on the player, then to settings, then to USB mode, and switching it from MTP to MSC. If you're in MSC already and it fails to recognize, then I don't know. :(

Trouble with expanded memory


The Sansa Express was only designed to hold up to a 2 GB Micro SD card because that is as much expandable memory it was meant to read. Anything bigger as in your case will cause the player to go slower than normal as it tries to read the card and after a while, it will most likely freeze. If you try it with a 2 GB Micro SD card, it should work.

Adding a 8GB MICRO SD card to the Sansa e260


I read somewhere that a 4 GB Micro SD card is the largest you can put in the SanDisk Sansa E260 expansion slot. It's maximum capacity is 8 GB, with internal + external memory put together. This is from what I've read. Hope this helps.

Memory stick not identified.


The memory stick probably is not the right type. The Sansa only takes SD Micro chips. However, IIRC Micro only goes up to 2GB. So, if you have a 4GB chip is must be a SD HC (High Capacity). Unfortunately, these do not work in the Sansa.

4 GB micro sd and the Sandisk Sansa e250R...


If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)

4GB micro sd card.


According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.
