Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)

1 Answer

Lost data I recntly plugged in my sansa c250 to charge...not in a computer but in a charger that just plugs into an outlet. It stayed on the screen with the little monster for a while so i unplugged it, turned it off, then plugged it in again. It then began to charge as it normally would. Afew hours later I unplugged it and turned it off. The next day I turned it on and all of my songs, photos, voice recordings, and FM recordings were gone. I'm currently in the process of redownloading my songs on Napster. I don't know what else to do.

My Sansa c250 won't charge properly. Initially when I bought it, I used it with a Windows XP PC, no sweat. That computer died and I began charging it with an OSX instead. It worked for a while, but after a...

I had a similar problem. My Sansa c250 would charge, when plugged into the computer. It would read that it was writing but the computer did not recognized that the Sansa c250 was connected. I switched to a different USB port and got the same results. I then realized that the two ports I was using were 1.0 port and idmedeatly when inserted in the 2.0 port it began charging and the computer recongized the Sansa c250. I know this won't solve every charging problem one may have. Changing the battery would be easier in some cases. Especially if they were sold like the AA or AAA.

My c250 turns on, but not in the way I would like it.

Try a hard RESET by holding the POWER and the MENU for about 15 to 20 seconds. That may reset the player back to the factory settings.

Sansa c250 not working at all!

2 Suggestions: 1) It may be that the battery isnt charged, let the unit charge fully 2) If that doesnt work, its probably time to send the unit back to sandisk
