    THE PROBLEM NOW IS THAT THE UNITE WILL NOT TURN ON, IT JUST SIT ON THE SANSA PAGE AND IT WILL NOT GO ANY WHERE NO MATTER WHAT YOU PUSH.

HI,



First give your player(which is a 200 series model) a reset:

1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.

If you still face the same problem then update your firmware and the problem will be solved.

There are 2 ways to update the fimware.I recommend to use the first method.

Method 1-Using Sansa Firmware Updater :



1. If it's not installed yet, download and install the Sansa Firmware Updater.
2. Switch the USB Mode on your device to MSC (e200v1 and e200v2) or Rhapsody (e200R).
3. Connect your Sansa e200 to the PC.
3a. Assuming there's a new firmware available, the following message will appear on your lower right taskbar. Click on the balloon message.
3b. OPTIONAL: You can also manually run the SansaUpdater from your programs files. Most likely it will be under Programs > SanDisk > Sansa Updater > Sansa Updater.
4. Select the Firmware check box.
5. Click Download Now. Firmware download and updating starts.
6. Click Finish after the firmware has been downloaded.

7. Disconnect your Sansa e200 from the PC.
8. A "Firmware upgrade in progress" message will appear on the Sansa e200's display screen. The device will turn itself off after the firmware is updated.


METHOD 2 - Manual update by downloading the firmware from the Sansa Forum
1. On your Sansa e200, verify the hardware revision.
a. From the Main Menu, go to Settings > System Info.
b. Select Version.
- If the Version is V01.xx.xxx, you have e200v1. Proceed to step 2
- If the Version is V03.xx.xxx, you have e200v2. Proceed to step 2
- If the Rhapsody and PlayForSure options (instead of MSC/MTP) appear under Mode, you have an e200R. Proceed to step 5.
2. Go to the e200 thread on SanDisk's Sansa community.
3. Click e200v1 ...Firmware Download & Instruction if your player is an e200v1.
Click e200v2 ...Firmware Download & Instruction if your player is an e200v2.

If you need any more help let me know

Thank you

This is per one of the sansa professors. mike If you use MTP AND MSC mode, the files sometimes don't delete from the other mode. Delete them all in one mode then unplug, change modes, and plug in again using the other mode..

My sansa e250


If you want to delete EVERY track off the player, then reformat the player in Windows Media Player - it's a shortcut - see my "tips and tricks" on formatting mp3 players

If there are artist, album traces, then you need to click on every subfolder under your device in Windows Media Player and delete every trace that way - tedious, but effective

-Tha Mp3 Doctor
There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

Deleting songs from Sandisk


Hi. The minimum requirements of your Sansa E250 is Windows XP and above and Windows Media Player 10 and above. If you're using Windows Media Player 10 or above, your Sansa E250 and its contents should appear on the right pane when you click on the "Sync" tab. You can right click on a song and select "Remove". The songs will be erased permanently from the player. If your songs do not appear on Windows Media Player 10 or above, it is possible that your songs may have been saved on another mode. Your Sansa E250 comes in 2 modes: MTP and MSC. Songs saved on one mode will not be seen by the other mode, and vice versa. There are 2 ways to delete songs from your Sansa E250: By browsing the folders containing the songs, or by formatting the player. You can switch modes by navigating your E250's menu using the following: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode Next, plug your player in your PC and open Windows Explorer. You should first set your Explorer to "Show hidden Files and Folders" by going to the "Tools" menu (located on menu lists on Windows Explorer window), then choosing "Folder Options", then enabling the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button Deleting Music files under MTP Mode: 1. Your player should appear as a Sansa E250 icon in Explorer as a "Portable Audio Device". Double left-click this icon to browse the player. 2. You'll find a "PPI NAND" sub-folder. Again, double left-click on this sub-folder. 3. You'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it. 4. Your music should appear as individual files or folders. Delete this to remove the file(s) from the player Deleting Music files under MTP Mode: 1. Your player should appear as a Drive letter and entitled either as a "Removable Drive" or as "Sansa E250" 2. Double left-click on this drive letter to browse the player 3. You may find your music files immediately on this folder, or you'll find a series of sub-folders, one of which should be titled "Music". Double left-click this to open it and view your music files. 4. Delete the music files you want, and they should be removed from the player Deleting files through Format: 1. Formatting the player erases all files in the player, and oftentimes this is the best option to ensure that all files are removed and any corruption eliminated. Also, it is best to format the player when in MSC mode. 2. When the appears as a drive letter (under MSC mode), right-click on that drive letter and select "Format". On the "Format" pop-up window, click "Start" to begin the format process. 3. Follow the on-screen prompts and safely remove the player from your PC when the "Format Complete" display appears. 4. Unplug the player from the PC and when the player is powered up, the message "No Files" should appear on the player's LCD screen 5. Switch the mode back to "MTP", or continue to use "MSC". Note: It is best to use "MTP" when you are transferring subscription music to the player. I hope this helps. :)

Weird music files on my Sansa e250 media player


Reformat your Sansa via My Computer. Right click on your Sansa while in my computer, and then FORMAT. Please understand that this will delete ALL of your files. You will have to resync any pictures or music. I had to do this in MTP, AND MSC mode individually to get rid of those pesky items.
