    My new (one week old) e250 has the same problem. The usb's have to be reset each time I plug it in. It will not charge, and I can no longer update the player. It is basically useless. Please help! asharis@msn.com

When I plug mine in it says its just "Charging" The menu will still be up. Then I figured out that you have to unplug it real quick then plug it in again. The it will say its charging. But for your problem the best thing to do would be to download the drivers from Sandisks web site. As well as getting the firm ware updates for it.

Here are the links.

Compatible charging cables for phillips go gear hdd1630/17


If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

I have a 3 year old sansa e280v2 that whenever plugged in to usb brigs up message "power surge on hub port". it will not charge.


Try connecting the Sansa to the computer directly, without going through a USB hub. The Sansa is not supposed to work if connected through a hub.

I was able to charge it fully last night but now it will not turn on this morning.It is a sansa clip i have tried holding the power up for a few minutes but still nothing.


I'm surprised it wouldn't turn on when plugged into external power. That would mean a different problem than a disconnected battery lead ... possibly a disconnected USB port lead, though then I would have expected that you'd be able to turn it on when not plugged in.

Will not connect via USB hub


I am guessing that the usb hub is not powered. Most usb charing based mp3 players require a certain amount of power in order to be used on the computer or charged by it. I would recommend plugging it into a direct port or buying a powered usb hub.

Power surge on hub port


I am having to send my wife's curve out for repair today as it seems that the very fine connections made to the circuit board from the power port have come away. This port seems to be very fragile, and poorly designed IMHO given that it has to be used so frequently.

My Sansa e250 won't charge all the way!! Help me!


Sounds like the battery may have come loose in the back, so its not charging.

Take the 4 screws out, remove the battery. The put the battery back in and try charging it.







Best of Luck.

Power sugre with m240


Hi there. This message would indicate any one of the following: 1. You have a lot of USB devices plugged in to your computer, and the maximum power supply for the USB ports has been exceeded by plugging this player to your computer. It would be best if you unplugged 1 or 2 of the USB devices connected for the time being. 2. You are plugging the player on your front USB port, and may need to plug it in the rear USB port to acquire ample power supply (front USB ports do not get as much power as the rear USB port -- sad but true) 3. You are using a laptop and may need to try another USB port on that computer. Purchasing a self-powered USB hub would be ideal as it gets its power supply directly from the wall electrical socket.
