First, make sure it's a microSD card and not a microSDHC card. If it's larger than 2GB then it's a microSDHC card and won't work. Second, make sure all your music is in a folder named "MUSIC".

SOURCE: Micro SD card not read

The Sansa c250 and lower cannot read SDHC cards. They must be regular SD cards for the c250 to "see" them. That is, they must be of 2GB capacity or lower. If the card is 4GB or higher, it is a SDHC card and will not work.

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.

change the mode of the player to MSC and connected the player to the computer, this will help detect the microsd as a removable disc drive.Transferring songs to the card is via drag and drop or copy and paste.

SOURCE: 2gb Sansa Fuze won't recognize 2gb Micro SD

place the blank card into the SanDisk player
go to SETTINGS press "enter"
go to SYSTEM SETTINGS press "enter
go to FORMAT press "enter"
it will ask "are you sure you want to format this device"?
select YES

dowload songs to REMOVABLE DISK drive F, at least that is what my PC assigned it to. You will overload your MP3 PLAYER if you continue to download to the Sanza Drive.

Hope this helps.

I inserted a 2gb micro sd card into my 4gb sansa fuze for more memory and it's still saying I don't have enough space on it when I go to add a song off of limewire


Inserting a microSD card into the Sansa does nto magically expand its internal memory. The card is a separate chunk of memory. You can move some songs from the internal memory to the card to free up some internal memory. Or you can add the new song to the card.

Sansa c240 and a 4 GB Micro SD HC card.


Sansa C240 can only read SD cards that are NOT SDHC - that means it can only read up to a 2gb Micros SD card.

Use of micro sd card


If the memory card is over 2 GB, the player can not read it because it was only designed to read up to a 2 GB memory card. It is not showing up on your player because it is too big for the player to read. If you get a smaller card, it should woork just fine on your player and you should be able to access it easily.

Mp3 Player not reading SD 1GB Card


The Sansa is unfortunatley one huge mess up the programming has failed its working on a database with only 4 levels but for grphics and songs you need at least 7 lhopefully you can return it and get another if not you can try putting another type of chip hopefully that will work

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).

Go to the knowledge base on the Sansa site and find this (chances are you have an SDHC card in an incompatible unit):
Sansa e200
 - verify the version of the player.  To check, go to SETTINGS > INFO
              
For 01.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards 
For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards 
NOTE: Firmware is not interchangeable. 

Sansa e200R - up to 2GB microSD cards 

Sansa e100 - supports SD cards up to 2GB
