Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
I don't know what this device is, which makes it difficult to begin to figure out how to reset it. My wife doesn't remember where she bought it or too much about it.
There is no Apple logo - it must be a knockoff. It most resembles the ipod nano, or maybe a mini, from the images shown. It has colorful, animated icons on the menu: SETUP, E-BOOK, TEL, GAME, MUSIC, AMV, RECORD, VOICE, FM RADIO, PHOTO.
It gives the blue screen message, "disk error" when selecting most any function from the menu other than "SETUP". [TEL gives a menu to setup police number] [FM Radio gives "hard error"] That function - SETUP - goes to a list of sub-functions. None of them seem to be usefull except firmware and firmware update.
The firmware screen may be the most helpful. It identifies as:
I tried the Apple Five Step Proceedure, but could never get it to reset. The battery icon is still animatingh even after overnight on my open and on laptop. It looks full to me.
Do you have any additional useful information as to how to correct the "disk error" so that anything eles can be attempted?
This player sounds thoroughly corrupt - if the 5 R's didn't work, then the only last thing you can try (probably won't work) is to insert he iPod, double-click on my computer, right-click ipod logo, and select Format - Fat32 (warning: this for PC's onlt, not MAC's).

Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,
if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.
Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.
If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.
Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."
This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.
Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.
Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.
Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.
Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.
Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.
Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.
This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.
If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.
Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.
hope this helps
