Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
Alright...The problem is my mp3 won't work..When I plug it to the PC it wont recognize it, it just shows on the screen "Load main image failed. Switch to recovery mode"...It also says that when I simply TRY to turn it on.. So if someone here could tell me how to format it if my computer wont recognize...Help :D
Try this to go to settings then at the bottom go to USB mode and switch to the other mode

I don't know why it worked, but I was having the same problem until I removed the SD disk from the Sansa. Then the computer recognized it, and also the SD disk after I reinserted it. It's this sort of thing that the iPod is unlikely to have. Sandisk really needs to clean up its act!

Turn off the player. Make sure that when connecting the cord to the player you hear a "Click" confirming that the cord is securely plugged into the player. Put the Hold switch in the "Hold" position so you see the orange color on it. Hold the Record button on the side while pressing the power button. This brings you into recovery mode. This is where you can use the REcovery Tool from the Sandisk website to format and wipe the player to its original status. If the Recovery Tool does not work, then you must use the Firmware Updater tool, also on the Sandisk site. This worked for me last night, as I had the same issue.
