    My mp3 won't turn on with the sandisk in the slot and I cannot load songs onto it. My mp3 is telling me that it is full with the 2 gb but I have a 4 gb microdisk in the slot. I hope that someone can help.

    I have the 1GB player with a 4GB Micro HDSC card. Mine powers up fine, but doesn't acknowledge the card. It doesn't see it on the player or when I have it synced to my pc, it won't see it either. I put it in a reader in the usb drive and loaded music and pictures on it thinking maybe it just couldn't access it through the player when it was hooked up to the pc. Then I inserted it into the player hoping it would spot it now that it had data on it, but nothing.

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.

It's possible that it kindly erased the card for you. Mine does that regularly. If you plug the card back into your PC and no longer see anything on it, or if prompts you to re-format, then this is what happened. I don't know why it happens, but it does it fairly often to me. Just have to keep a backup copy of all those songs on the PC and re-format the MicroSD card and copy them back over every so often.

SOURCE: sansa mp3 player could not detect micro sd add on card

I believe you can fix it by going on the player, then to settings, then to USB mode, and switching it from MTP to MSC. If you're in MSC already and it fails to recognize, then I don't know. :(

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).

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.

My micro SD memory card 1gb can not read in my cellphone what should i do?


Hello.

It might be broken. TO check, insert it into another phone that requires micro sd card. OR insert it into a micro sd adapter, then put it in a SD card reader, then connect it to your computer and see if it can be read. If your computer can read it, format it then try it on your phone again (All files will be deleted when you format it). If all devices can't read it, then that is the end of it.

How shall i put in a kingston 1gb micro sd in a All in 1 card reader


You should have 2 components with your micro SD card. The card, a small adaptor and a large adaptor. All you need to do is see what size adaptor your read needs. You place the card in the tiny slot in the adaptor and slide it in the reader. The computer will find the micro SD and install the driver to read it. Then it will give you an option to open the files. That is how 99% of them work.

LG KC550 PC Suite Problem


I speant Hours swearing at my phone because it would not read my music files, Tried the card on many different phones which would take Micro SD and all other phones read the music Just not the LG KC550.


I found that getting a Micro SD dongle reader, Insterting your 2GB Micro sd card in that and then putting your music files into the "sounds" folder works.

Instructions.

1. Insert Micro SD card into Card reader.
2. Insert card Reader to Computer Via USB.
3. Go to my computer and Open the USB Card reader.
4. Select the Music files from your pc Via Copy files
5. Go to open Tab (Where you can see your Micro Sd card) Open the sounds folder and Paste.


If you are finding it hard to get the 5 folders of images, Documents, Sounds, others and Videos on your Micro SD card. Format the card by going My computer, Right click the Card reader (with you Micro sd card inserted) and click format. Takes a few seconds. Insert the card into the phone, the phone will auto put the folders on the card. Then go to step 1 (above) and start again.

Hope this Helps guys.

Trouble with expanded memory


The Sansa Express was only designed to hold up to a 2 GB Micro SD card because that is as much expandable memory it was meant to read. Anything bigger as in your case will cause the player to go slower than normal as it tries to read the card and after a while, it will most likely freeze. If you try it with a 2 GB Micro SD card, it should work.

Adding a 8GB MICRO SD card to the Sansa e260


I read somewhere that a 4 GB Micro SD card is the largest you can put in the SanDisk Sansa E260 expansion slot. It's maximum capacity is 8 GB, with internal + external memory put together. This is from what I've read. Hope this helps.

Micro sd 4gb card problems.


Check the Sansa tutorials at http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1468
to make sure you have followed all the steps first.

In my experience, every mp3 player/photo frame/etc with a card reader has a MAXIMUM memory limit for the type of card that it can read. It is possible that the Sansa player can only read 2GB Micro SD cards or smaller - and thisi nformation may not have been available when they printed the manual. If you have followed all instructions, and it still will not read the card, try switching to a 2GB Micro SD card.
