Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Ipod [?] mp3/mp4 player - lsd_9301_10

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).
