My sandisk says,"not enough space


"You need to format your device, the best recommendation is to place it into MSC mode. This is the Sansa's mass storage mode and it allows the device to be treated as a drive. Go to the settings menu and find USB Mode. There are two choices, MSC and MTP. Choose MSC. MTP is for music transfer using a media player software like Windows Media Player. If you don't have a way to set MSC mode with a menu on the device, engage the 'hold' switch, and while holding down the left or right button (others report also using the center button), plug the device into the USB connector. Make sure the USB is already plugged into the computer. You shouldn't need to do this with a standard e250; the menu should work. After you have connected the device in MSC mode, right click My Computer and choose Manage from the menu. Find Disk Management and select it. The disks should be numbered, starting with 0 for the C: drive. You should see a drive that says SANSA E250, or something similar. Write down the type of file system if it is shown. Most e250's says FAT32. Some are FAT, but check to be sure. There will be two partitions on the disk. The larger of the two is for your music files. The smaller is for when the device goes into "hibernation" - it's so you'll be back to the exact same song when it powers back on. Right click the larger partition and choose Format from the menu. You will see the format dialog. Set the volume label to SANSA E250 (I believe that's your device type), set the file system to what you wrote down earlier (do NOT choose NTFS!) and leave the Allocation unit size at "Default." Do not check either of the two check boxes. Click on OK. Keep an eye on the partition in Disk Management and you will see the percent complete. When it's done, look in the System Tray (by the date and time). You should see an icon for safely removing hardware. Double-click it to bring up the safely remove hardware dialog. Click on the USB drive representing your Sansa device and click Stop. Another dialog will come up and you'll have to do this again. Close the dialog when the device has stopped. The device will restart and initialize the music database. You're done! Now change to MTP mode and sync the device and add your songs back in. Whenever you are in MSC mode, ALWAYS stop the device as I described in the paragraph above. That way you won't corrupt the drive."

I need help


The device is supposed to refresh each time in case you put in a new memory card or added additional files. That's not the problem - this is: There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.

Cannot delete the songs on mp3


I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'

TO DELETE
1)Plug in
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else

Try to add the device manually.

Plug the player in while it’s set to "MTP" mode. (This selection is in the Settings area)

On your computer, open Device Manager, and select: Add Hardware.

Choose the "already connected the hardware" option.

From list, choose "Add a new hardware device".

Select: "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list."

Select: Portable Devices, then MTP device.

Hope it works for you.

New player, says I ran out of space


If you formatted it thru Windows Media Player, or Rhapsody, it didnt really format properly. Make sure the device is in Rhapsody Mode. Settings>Mode or USB Mode>Rhapsody. On your computer go to Disk Management. Right Click on My Computer and select Manage. On the next window select Disk Management, under Storage. On the right side at the top of the window you will see the device listed (i.e. Sansa e250r). Right click on the device and select format. Dont select any other options, just hit Start. Your device is now formatted properly. Best of Luck.

Deleting files from Sansa e250


The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD: 1. Set the e250 to MSC mode. 2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector. 3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.) To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
