You must find the Sansa c250 menu that allows you to format the microSDHC card for use with media player.  Most microSDHC  cards are shipped unformatted.  It is a new technology and there is no standard format for microSDHC cards as they are used to store many types of data.  My cell phone uses one to store music, video,and photos, so the phone's manufacturer included a format command choice in the appropriate "phone memory" menu.  Look for the microSDHC card in a "memory" menu. Follow the prompts to format the card.  This only works on a NEW card.  If you format a used card, ALL data will be lost.  Formatting a card or a hard disk effectively prepares the memory to be written on, erasing any data previously written on it.

Sansa c250 will not show music on memory card


First, make sure it's a microSD card and not a microSDHC card. If your card is larger than 2GB then it won't work in the c250.
Second, make sure all your music in a folder named "MUSIC" at the root of your card. You can have subfolders in that folder, but the top folder must have that name.

I just put in a brand new 4gb MicroSDHC card into my Sansa SanDisk Plus & plugged it into my computer. Now its stuck on "Refreshing your media" & I can't even shut it off. Help?


Remove the microSDHC card. Disconnect the Sansa from the computer. Press and hold the power button for fifteen seconds to reset the Sansa.

Be aware that the e200 series of Sansa media players do not work with microSDHC cards, only with microSD cards.

I have sansa e200 4gb and not read my micro SD 4GB in the player and not through usb on my computer.Help me please


The Sansa e200-series uses microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to go with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

What kind of a sd card do I need to purchase inorder to expand the memory of my sansa c250


Hello,

It depends on the firmware version of the player,
to determine the capacity and type SD card you can use.
note
player's firmware version can not be interchanged

Look in Settings > System Info for your version:
For 01.xx.xx firmware (c200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards
For 03.xx.xx firmware (c200 version 2) - up to 4GB microSDHC cards

Can an 8GB microSDHC card be used in my Sansa Fuze 4GB mp3 player


Actually, it sounds as if the card is working. The more you have on the card, the more free internal memory you'll need so it can build its media database. Remove the card, then delete some files from the internal memory to free up space. Then reinsert the card.

Sandisk Sansa C250 won't recognize 8Gig micro chip


Your model doesn't natively support SD cards over 4GB, however I hear you can install something called "Rockbox," it's a free third party firmware that allows you to dual boot between "Rockbox" and the Sansa firmware. "Rockbox" adds the support you need for SD cards with a capacity of 4GB or more. I've never used this firmware, but it does sound promising.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

External memory read


Verify that you are using a microSD card (max 2GB), not a microSDHC (4GB or larger) card.
You can use a microSDHC if you install RockBox on your Sansa C240, but it will be read-only. You will have to use an external card reader to copy media to it.

Micro SD card not read


The Sansa c250 and lower cannot read SDHC cards. They must be regular SD cards for the c250 to "see" them. That is, they must be of 2GB capacity or lower. If the card is 4GB or higher, it is a SDHC card and will not work.

You might be running into a problem with the new card being a SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card and not just a SD (Secure Digital) card. I have had similar problems with SDHC cards when I put then in older products that have regular SD slots (Photosmart Printer). The cards will still fit into the slots, however the method as to which they are read and written to is different which causes the problem. So, maybe try updating computer hardware drivers or mp3 firmware from the Sansa website. Also, if you can, exchange the 4gb SDHC for a 4gb SD card, this could be a pain in the ****, but this solution should fix your problem definately. Hope some of this helped.

Sansa e260


The e260 works with microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card and won't work in the Sansa.
With a microSD card, simply put music tracks into a folder called "MUSIC". When the card is installed, the Sansa will see the additional tracks.
