    I am having the same problem except on a Vista HP laptop.

    I connected my Sansa M250 and installed just under 2Gigs of files, I listen to them just fine. But I just connected it again and I can't find the files. They are still there, they still play from the M250 and Windows says it is almost full. But all I see are two folders (empty) and a few files:
    Audible (folder)
    Record (folder)
    Mtable.sys
    Res_info.sys
    Sys_conf.sys
    version.sdk

    I created a folder named AUDIO but when I right-click on the icon for the M250, there is no choice for "Open as portable media device" or anything similar. When I just double-click on the M250 icon, there is still nothing inside the AUDIO folder.

    All references to the M250 are gone from the Sandisk and Sansa websites. My manual has not been any help and the CD only has manuals and "special offers" on it.

    Thank you for any help,
    Steve

I had a similar problem.
This is how I fixed Sansa m250 2GB
I have Windows XP, so if you have a different version of Windows you might have to do something else.
Connect the player to your computer.
From My Computer open the drive that says SANSA M250
If there is no folder called "audio" make a folder named that. (this is where your future mp3 files will be stored).
My audio folder was missing, so I had to do this.
Now go back to My Computer right click on the SANSA M250 drive scroll down the menu and open the folder that says "Open As Portable Media Device".
Now click on the icon that says "SANSA M250"
Now open the folder that says "FOUND.000".
If you are having the same problem that I did all your old mp3 files will show up with a file extension .CHK instead of mp3 and the names will be numbers. You can either erase all these & reload all your songs into the "audio" folder I mentioned previously or you can rename each file extension to a .MP3 instead of .CHK. (after you change them to .MP3 they will load on your mp3 player. But, remember if you do choose to rename them instead of erasing and reloading, when you want to permanently delete them you will have to access the "FOUND.000" folder again to do that.

How to access SD micro card on sansa e250


I expected to find the new playlists on the SD card as a separate file to access and play. Instead the SD card songs show on up the Sansa menu simply added among the existing songs / artists stored in the Sansa. Its not a solution but they are there. Since using the SD card, my Sansa does databse refresh everytime it starts, whether SD card is in it or not.

Cannot download anymore music


depending on how big the songs are say 4 mintues or longer this will determine how many songs will be allowed in the mp3 player
this was in your manual and front of box when purchased in detail about the length of music and not using scan disk
scandisk is a good way to ruin a mp3 player
scandisk is used to fix programs on a move able storage device (hard drive) with moving parts your mp3 is a microchip that stores info no moving parts reccomend a full format of mp3 and reapply your songs
