Re: refresh database

Sansa e200 provides a RESET function for unresponsive units. Press and hold the MENU button for 15 seconds, and this should work to regain normal funtionality. Please note: settings and adjustments from the last operation WILL BE LOST. The files however should remain.

I just got a SDmicro 2G to 'add on' to my MP3 player Sansa e200. I have inserted the card and got the reading: "Refresh Database". I do not have the owners manual anymore so I am not sure how to do...

You don't have to do anything. Just wait and let the Sansa refresh its database. It shows a progress bar to indicate progress.

You can download the manual from

Refreshing database - Everytime

It's only reading the data on the micro sd, it just has to have that little time to do that, even if there is hardly anything on the sd, it still needs to check it out, just like it does with its own drive. Don't seat it, if you don't like it see if you can put the data onto the main drive of your sansa.
