Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

Frozen on Refresh Database

My mp3 player was working just fine, and then I tried to upload a bunch of new songs onto the player and only a few of them actually went on. So I deleted everything from the player and re-uploaded all my music. When my mp3 player is attached to my computer, all the songs appear in the music folder of the player on my E: drive. However, when I disconnect my mp3 player, only half of them seem to actually be on the mp3 player. Then, the mp3 player froze up on a song. I was able to turn it off, reconnected it to my computer, disconnected it, and now it's frozen on the Refresh Database screen. This is getting very frustrating!

Take out the four screws on the back and pop out the battery then put it back on. Make sure you synced the songs properly. Add to the problem how you added your songs and I might be able to help.
Good Luck

Stucked at Refresh database


When the Sansa reads "refreshing database," what it is doing is going through all the songs you've loaded on to it, pulling out the "tag" information (Artist, Album, Song Title, Genre) so it can add this information to its own database which it uses to display the songs to you in its menus.

If it gets stuck during this process, usually it's because of a corrupt song file, or a song file in a format it doesn't understand.

Note that the e280 is only able to play MP3 and WMA audio formats. If you've loaded a different type of audio file onto your Sansa, you'll need to remove them.

If the songs you've recently loaded have all been MP3 and/or WMA, you may have loaded a corrupted file onto your Sansa. Try removing the songs you recently added, and see if the problem goes away.

"Refresh Database" never ends!


If you try to load too many songs onto the player initially, it may take up to an hour to get past Refresh database. Unfortunately, if you shut the player off while it is refreshing, it will more than likely ruin your player. Run the Sansa Recovery Tool or Update the Firmware on your Player as a workaround. Make sure the hold/lock switch isn't activated, just as a safeguard.

Putting songs onto it


You might not have a type of file that is supported by your mp3 player. I use online converters and change them all to wma because our players can play that and they are smaller than mp3s.
