Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I have a pretty big problem with my sansa e250

I've had my sansa e250 for about a year now and just about a month or 2 ago my sansa e250 starting not working what i mean is the computer won't even recognize it. it loads half way and then stops at the same place every time. I've done the holding the power button down for 15 secs or longer and i've even taken the battery out and put it back in and still nothing. I'm also running on linux os if that makes a difference.

Linux = problems - go to Linux forum after grabbing as much software info as you can from Sandisk's website.

Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really,  the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device. 
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.

i know i have to charge my sansa for at least 7-8 hours before the battery will show it is full. about your other problem, i believe there is an option under the settings menu to automatically shut your sansa off. If not then you can turn off the backlight and that will save alot of battery life.
