You have an error in the firmware. This is damage than is irreparable by any user of a mp3 player. Call the company, tell then that your firmware was corrupted and ask how you can "hard boot" back into a "Fresh copy" of your firmware. Problem solved! hope this helps!

Remove the microSD card, then connect the player to your computer and delete stuff from its internal memory until you have 6MB free.

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?


You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

On start, "refresh database"...?


I have the same problem for the same reasons. It's just the micro memory card booting up, so the refresh is no big issue. But if anyone finds a faster method of making it turn on, I'd like to hear :D

Refreshing data base


It refreshes the database to build the menu for you to navigate.

Your device may have corrupt data in it and therefore takes longer than normal to build the library.

You can format the device to remove everything, and then re-transfer them to see if that helps.

To format in My Computer>Device Name (e250)>right Click and select format.





Best of Luck.

okay, heres wut u can try. try to switch the USB mode from MTP to MSC (in settings, go to USB Mode and switch from MTP to MSC.) And then in the MSC mode connect it to the PC. I dunno bout ur sansa, but my did a Database Reboot, and the computor could see the player. Then u can switch it back to the MTP mode (czu its much mroe comfortable). Although i think the 0.5 gigs are lost forever (i lost 1.5 gigs,)atleast now u can dwonlaod songs on ur player.

Refresh database looping


This may not work for everyone - but try inserting a TransFlash (also called Micro SD)card in the microSD slot, and power on. It may then correctly refresh its database. It worked in my case, with firmware ver11.
