You might have a different operating system now - Windows Vista will not automatically recognize this player.

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Lost ipod nano


Hey maddie13,

Unfortunately, Best Buy Product Replacement Plans (PRP's) only include coverage for hardware failures and manufacturer defects. If your iPod has been lost or stolen, we would be unable to provide you with a replacement.

If you would like however, your local Best Buy™ store should be able to cancel your current PRP coverage and provide you with a pro-rated refund for its cancellation. To do so, you would simply need to bring a copy of your original store receipt to the service desk to your local store and request to have your PRP cancelled/returned.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Theoretically, you should be able to use this one forever, if you keep charging it. The battery isn't replaceable, so hopefully it will last you a good 3 years or more. The #1 threat to Mp3 players isn't the battery, but keeping up with software/computer environment changes. Most mp3 players introduced to date only last 1-2 years - much shorter than everyone had originally thought.

4GB micro sd card.


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.

New SD Card wont work - all the others I have do!!


I believe any SD cards larger than 2Gb are technically SDHC cards, which are not compatible with all cameras. Kingston is a decent company so I'm guessing it's not because the card is a dud. If your camera doesn't advertise SDHC compatibility then I don't think you can get the card to work in it.

Keyboard


I bought a refurb EX110 from woot.com a year ago... Everything worked fine for a year (XPx32), but now the home keys (sans G and H) do not work: ASDFJKL;

New SetPoint software, batteries, blew out with 100PSI of air, tried on several PCs -- all the same results.

These are just poorly made keyboards. They have fine ergonomics, but the soft components just don't stand the test of time.

They carry a 5 year limited Logitech warranty (when purchased new w/ proof of purchase), so instead of jacking around with them I'd just goto logitech.com and initiate an RMA.

As for me, I've started the process, but don't know if they'll take back my 2 year old keyboard that I spent $25 for from a discount site...

The drivers necessary are part of Windows Media player 10, or higher. As long as you have Windows XP / SP2, or Vista and Windows Media Player, your device will work with your computer.
