I've gotten a 4gb micro Sd card to boost the memory of my Sansa Express. i've never been able to use the mp3 player before. every time i turn my sansa express on, a screen goes on, saying : Refresh Database do Not Remove SD. and then i wait forever hoping to listen to my songs, then the battery goes flat -.- HELP ME
Well, the most memory from a micro sd card the Sansa mp3 player can take is 2gb, because anything more will freeze up the player because it was not designed to read that much memory. So if you have a 1gb or a 2gb memory card, then you can use them.

You should probably just copy the mp3 files directly from their source folder over to the micro sd. To do this, put the micro sd into some type of adapter that will allow the computer to read/write to it. There are usb sticks that do this and there are SD adapters you put the micro into so you can use a media reader/writer with it. Once you have the card seen by the computer, just drag and drop your MP3's into the drive letter corresponding to the memory card. After that is done, put it back into the player and turn it on. I should find all your songs and make them available to you.
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.
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.
The memory stick probably is not the right type. The Sansa only takes SD Micro chips. However, IIRC Micro only goes up to 2GB. So, if you have a 4GB chip is must be a SD HC (High Capacity). Unfortunately, these do not work in the Sansa.
If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)
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.
