Deleted rhapsody channels, but it is still takeing up space.....

OK, I got a e250R for Christmas and I almost immediately noticed that 1.1 gigs of the memory was already used up. I just learned that this is because of the rhapsody channels that come preloaded on it. I followed others directions on how to delete them and altho I've deleted the channels it still shows up on my mp3 player (but it won't let me play them, it tells me to "connect to my PC to transfer to device.") Help, I would like to have that extra space.

MP3 player refuses to remove deleted songs

Don't know why it doubled loaded them but I noticed the reset on the side and thought it was worth a try. Hit reset and it cleared all the songs from the list that I had deleted.

Sansa e250R firmware

hey yeah i had the same problem with my sansa e250r. when mine does that i
1. turn it off
2. put the hold button on
3. hold down the rec. button
4. turn it back on
that will get you into recovery mode connect your data cable once you have hooked it up to your computer open my computer and you should see a 16mb drive there instead of your normal mp3.
once you see that open it up.
now go to scroll down and click on download firmware link
once you have downloaded that file unzip it and copy the file that is inside to the 16mb drive that you opened up in my computer.

once you have done all the above,,
1. take the hold button off
2. disconnect the data cable
3. wait for it to reboot.
if the above dosent work you might wanna take it to the dealer.
hopefully this works for you as well as it did me. good luck

My sansa e250

hey smart ones(sarcasm) why dont u just buy the Sansa e250v2

its pretty much the same thing, just without rhapsody, thats how me and my friends are, i bought the one with rhapsody features(Sansa e250R) so i can play the songs that i bought and get free music channels for it, where my friend on the other hand has the Sansa e250v2 without rhapsody, u can still use rhapsody but u cant get free music channels for it, or u could also download best buy music manager or rhapsody and set up a free 31-day account for it to stop saying that for a while, plus if u got ur Sansa e250R from Best Buy, they can replace it, or trade u the sansa that u have with the rhapsody-free one(without rhapsody)

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.

Used memory i never used

With most MP3 players, some of the memory is used for system files and software. Just delete all the things you done use (i.e. pictures, playlists, Rhapsody Channels) and whatever space you have free is what you have to work with.

If you want more memory, I highly suggest a microSD card

I can not get the song off that came with the mp3 player. help!!!

It might be a glitch and I had my Sandisc Sansa e250R mp3 player for a very short time but I think if you delete the Rhapsody Channels with the player instead of the computer it might work. Hope it works
