I believe you can fix it by going on the player, then to settings, then to USB mode, and switching it from MTP to MSC. If you're in MSC already and it fails to recognize, then I don't know. :(

SOURCE: sansa mp3 player could not detect micro sd add on card

Ok so as was mentioned its a SDHC card. and a v1 player won't play it.
you have a "v1" is your firmware starts with 01.xx.xx.xxx etc
to fix this you can "rockbox" your e260 (www.rockbox.org)
it makes the player much much better imo as well as allow it to read 8 gb sd cards.
though i have to put it in my card reader to add files not sure why but my player does read and recognize the files so thats a plus.

Why is there no manual with my sansa fuze


Hello,

For the Sansa Fuze there's a manual available in pdf format on the Sandisk support site:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/FUZE/fuze_userguide_en.pdf
Save this file to a location on your computer for later use.

When you explore "My Computer" the micro SD card with x GB memory, should be available as an extra external drive.
This drive will show up as an extra drive letter with a total capacity of x GB .

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.
Download it here
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I have a sansa e260, 4gb capacity, that has a spot for micro sd mini chips. I recently puchased a 4gb mini sd ghip that is 4 gb and loaded it up with about 3.89 gb of music and the sansa will not detect...


The Sansa, in common with many devices which have been around for a while, will only recognize standard micro SD up to 2 GB, not the SDHC (High Capacity) variety.

Can 8GB micro SD be use in SanDisk Fuze 4GB mp3 player?


In order to use an 8gb micro sd, the device has to be SDHC approved. If you don't see an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) logo on the device or on the owners manual, It isn't compatible. It will read up to a 2 gb micro sd card.

Trouble with expanded memory


The Sansa Express was only designed to hold up to a 2 GB Micro SD card because that is as much expandable memory it was meant to read. Anything bigger as in your case will cause the player to go slower than normal as it tries to read the card and after a while, it will most likely freeze. If you try it with a 2 GB Micro SD card, it should work.

Adding a 8GB MICRO SD card to the Sansa e260


I read somewhere that a 4 GB Micro SD card is the largest you can put in the SanDisk Sansa E260 expansion slot. It's maximum capacity is 8 GB, with internal + external memory put together. This is from what I've read. Hope this helps.

Sansa mp3 player could not detect micro sd add on card


Anything over 4GB is a Micro SDHC card, not a Micro SD card. It is a completely different type of card format on the inside, and despite the compatible size and shape, it will not work on devices labeled only as Micro SD card compatible. The Sansa e200 and up (e250, e260, ect.) are NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MICRO SDHC CARDS (Micro SD cards that exceed 2GB in capacity).

4 GB micro sd and the Sandisk Sansa e250R...


If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)
