Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Deleting songs I'm having trouble with a recently purchased Sansa m250. I plugged it into the computer and removed a number of songs from my library and computer and then hit "sync." This has worked just fine previously. But now there are a number of songs that are no longer in my library or computer that are not deleted from my player. I can't get rid of them...help, please!

    Finally surfed around enough and found the solution. Somehow the USB setting had been changed (I never switched modes) so I went into USB in the
    settings" menu and changed it back to MSC. I was able to clear the entire device and start loading up new stuff.

    I'm very new to all this, so I'm not sure how much help I can be. There were no songs already loaded on mine when I got it. Luckily, I had only loaded about 10 CDs onto my player, so I deleted the entire library and when I was able to switch to MSC mode as described above, when I hit "sync" it took everything off the Sansa. Then I loaded the CDs I wanted into my library and loaded those.

Try this solution:

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"

Identifying files in scandisk


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.

Please wait rebuilding the library. Then the m250 shuts off.


Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:

  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second and then reinstall the battery without pushing any further buttons.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. This solution has worked for me.

I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players.

Sansa m250 mp3 problem with songs


The device has 2 modes of operation, if you transferred music in both modes, it is not reflected in the other.

Easiest solution is to format the device to remove everything, then transfer your files back to the device, staying in 1 specific mode.



Best of Luck.

Not enough space to listen


If it''s any consolation, the same thing happened to me after I loaded about 1.6 GB (~250 MB left) of music on my Sansa m250. I tried to delete the required 8MB, but the directory structure got destroyed to the point where my computer wouldn''t recognize the device. I called their technical support and they''re having me send it back to them for a replacement! It''s not you, but the player! I don''t know if there''s anything that can be done from a consumer standpoint.
