My Sansa e260 won't recognise a 4gig micro card.

I've formatted the Sansa and updated the firmware but still no joy.
Can anybody help please?

Thank you,
Graham.

    Wow, that was quick response, thank you.
    The micro sd card is working fine, I've put music onto it via the computer. I did format the card first.
    Best regards,
    Graham.

Ok...
Try formating the card using your sansa, so it helps to transfer sansa system files to the card.

please post back reply for further assistance.
thanks

There are two types of 4gig micro sd,

theres MicroSDHC For nokia phones or
MicroSD Standard
The HC have a file format on them that only Nokias and Samsungs tend to recognise for mobile data transfer and access. The standard cards don't.

Hope this helps

I need to know the maximum GB external micro sd card I can put in a sansa E260 4 GB Mp3 player and a sansa express 1gb mp3 Player.


Hi,

thank you for choosing Fixya.com

you can use 4GB it is the applicable memory on your mp3.
if you will try to use much higher than 4gb sometimes it is the reason why our player are hanging up.

please don't forget to rate our answers properly.

Sansa e260 firmware


Mine was a bit more FUBAR I guess. I have a Sansa e260. I had rockbox on it, went to switch back to the firmware. Uninstalled rockbox and on reboot... the e260 was refreshing the database and then came to a frozen green screen.

My e260 was already in MSC mode. I did the steps above but was still stuck.

The solution that worked was one posted by "Slaughter" on anythingbutipod.

The ultimate fix for all e2xx v1 problems - Format, enter recovery mode, downgrade firmware Link (you'll need to format the drive), reinstall newest firmware via newest Sansa Updater, reload tunes.

PC cannot detect Sansa e260


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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

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.
