Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
My Sansa e250 isn't loading to the main screen. It stops at "Refresh Database" about 1/8 of the way. Even after I plug it into my computer or 360, it does the same thing. This is really annoying, anyone know how I can fix this?

You might be having some corruptions on the player's internal memory. This sometimes happens after you download a lot of songs to the player (that's what happened with mine). Try to format the player in your computer under MSC mode. To set your player to MSC, navigate the menu as follows: Menu > Settings > USB mode > ... This will give you the choice of "MTP" and "MSC". Select "MSC". 1. Plug your player to your computer. Your computer should recognize it as a "Removable Drive" and it will have a drive letter. 2. Right-click on the drive letter for your E250 and then select "Format" 3. When the Format window appears, make sure to select "FAT32" as the file system type and make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox at the bottom section of that window remain un-checked. 4. Click "Start" and follow the on-screen prompts. 5. When the formatting is complete, simply re-download all songs to the player. I hope this works for you. There is another solution this may actually resolve that error you're having on the player. Let me know the results. :)

Seems to me that e250 has lots of problems concerning the refresh database and freezing
what a pity that Sansa is getting such a bad reputation.
the uint is great when it works ,there are a lot of refurbished unit up for sale in Aust and one can only guest how many have had this problem of freezing after installing mp3 files.one thing dont install files with Roxio data attached stuffs it up good and well on most mp3
