Hi, This is a common problem with MP3 players with almost a full memory. Apparently, the firmware gets messed up and eventually losses recognition of its purpose or some of the files it keeps. Sandisk has anticipated this problem and has posted online utilities just for this purpose. They are available at > http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

How can i erase music from my sandisk sansa mp3 m250?


Please connect your player to the PC as it will be detected and the files shown on the window of My computers as the new drive. Now click and open all the files present on the player. You can easily click on the files to deleted.

Identifying files in scandisk


I had a similar problem.
This is how I fixed Sansa m250 2GB
I have Windows XP, so if you have a different version of Windows you might have to do something else.
Connect the player to your computer.
From My Computer open the drive that says SANSA M250
If there is no folder called "audio" make a folder named that. (this is where your future mp3 files will be stored).
My audio folder was missing, so I had to do this.
Now go back to My Computer right click on the SANSA M250 drive scroll down the menu and open the folder that says "Open As Portable Media Device".
Now click on the icon that says "SANSA M250"
Now open the folder that says "FOUND.000".
If you are having the same problem that I did all your old mp3 files will show up with a file extension .CHK instead of mp3 and the names will be numbers. You can either erase all these & reload all your songs into the "audio" folder I mentioned previously or you can rename each file extension to a .MP3 instead of .CHK. (after you change them to .MP3 they will load on your mp3 player. But, remember if you do choose to rename them instead of erasing and reloading, when you want to permanently delete them you will have to access the "FOUND.000" folder again to do that.

Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:
  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second and then reinstalling the battery without pushing any further buttons.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer4.gif, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC4.gif Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. This solution has worked for me.
I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players.

M250 does not recognize some songs in the playlist


Use Windows Media Player to do this, not winamp

Won't come on


it could be the classic lockup that these players are famous for but usually they botup to the sandisk screen and then its a brick, anyway try a total hardware reset by:
1 taking out the battery.
2 holding the powerbutton down for 40 seconds
3 waiting 5 minutes before putting in a fresh battery and starting over.
