Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)

1 Answer

Ghost Files I have a Sansa c250 player. A couple of months ago I purchased a Micro SD card for the expansion slot, and I believe this is where the trouble started. When I've added or removed songs--either to the fixed drive on the c250, or the Micro SD card--some of the files are still showing up on the playlist. In some cases, there are duplicate copies of the same title listed on the c250, but the songs I deleted are not there when I view the files from my computer. Do I need to reinstall something or format it to erase some obsure file that is retaining old information? And, if so, how do I format it without erasing necessary system files, or where do I find what I need to install? Thank you for your help!!

    i just got a sansa c250 refurb. i loaded it up with mp3's (load A) when i first got it, connecting to my computer via usb, no problem. i listened to them for a few weeks, but then it came time to change things up. i deleted the old mp3 files and loaded it up with new ones (load B) , which appear in the file folder when the player is connected to the computer. once disconnected, (load A) file names appear in the player. when you try to play one of the songs, it gives you an error: 'bad file' appears on the screen and sometimes it locks up altogether. when you reconnect to the computer, the (load B) files still appear.

I would run the Sansa Recovery Tool for the c200 series - it will erase/format all the songs without deleting system files - it is available from Sandisk's website.

Can I attach an 8 GB Micro SD Card in the expansion slot of my Sansa e250? If not, what is the maximum storage size it supports?


The e250 uses microSD cards, not microSDHC cards. The maximum size of microSD cards is 2GB. Anything larger are microSDHC cards.

Computer says no files on device


Open device manager under the Control Panel to view hardware and devices. There should be a tab under portable devices that recognizes the Sansa c250. If their is a yellow exclamation point, then most likely the device has stopped working. Right click on it, and uninstall the device. Unplug your Sansa, wait a couple seconds, then plug it back in. Let it do its thing. If this does not solve your problem, then you should deffinately call the manufacturer.
