Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)
On inserting Micro SD card, it is not read by the player.
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.

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.
