How do I access the SD micro card on the sansa e250? I created a playlist on my PC and added it to the card. I have looked through all of the menu options on the e250 and have been unable to figure out how to access the music via the device.
I expected to find the new playlists on the SD card as a separate file to access and play. Instead the SD card songs show on up the Sansa menu simply added among the existing songs / artists stored in the Sansa. Its not a solution but they are there. Since using the SD card, my Sansa does databse refresh everytime it starts, whether SD card is in it or not.

HI. The best way to isolate the issue here will be to extract the SD card from the e250 and insert it in not your PC SD card slot to(use a usb SD card adapter if you do not have a SD card slot on your CPU) check the integrity of the card. If you are able to retrieve your media off the card while it is inserted in your PC, this will confirm that the card is not the issue and that the actaul culprit will be the program on the e250. In this case, reset your e250 device as stated in your manual y pressing the reset button. Once it is reset; Update your firmware. This should correct the issues.
Hi! Is the new card a normal micro-SD card - or is it a SDHC card?? Pay attention to your player version, as only v2 (e250 v2) supports SDHC cards. For v1 you'll have to use a standard micro-SD card. If it DOES support SDHC cards, or it's not a SDHC card, then:
Have tried using another card to see it the device is not damaged and that it still have the ability to read micro-SD cards?
Have you try using your own card on another device (PC, cell-phone, other player, etc.)? Did it work (Check for SDHC compatibility in this case as well...)??
FYI, SDHC stands for Secure Digital - High Capacity.
According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.
