I want to reset the player


The best thing to do is remove everything and start over.
How To:
Plug in the mp3 player to the usb and open Windows Media Player.
When the player shows up on the left side of the screen - "Sansa m250" - rightclick on it and choose "format."
Give it plenty of time erase everything.
**THE COMPUTER WILL SAY IT IS FINISHED BUT THE DEVICE WILL NOT. LISTEN TO THE DEVICE.**
Unplug and check to see if the device now says "no files." If so you're good. Just reload what music you want. If not, do the procedure again and make sure that the format process is complete before you unplug - sometimes it looks finished but is really just hung up.

Sansa m250 not working, need help soon


Plugging it into another computer changed the formatting of the player.. I would format the player from the menu itself, but if that fails:
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Sansa - sandisk m250 troubleshooting


Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:

  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second and then reinstall the battery without pushing any further buttons.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. This solution has worked for me.

I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players.

Please wait rebuilding the library. Then the m250 shuts off.
