All I can say is follow these steps to install the latest firmware into it. I think it is a great product because of the miniSD slot and the fact that I can just pop a new battery into it when I am out and about. Only if it works though, of course. . . I was about to return mine, when this fixed it. Try this:

The other day I replaced my battery and my unit would not go any further than the Pearl logo. So I downloaded the firmware upgrade from http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2243/related/1, and followed all the troubleshooting instructions that popup when you start the program:

start the program,
remove the battery,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button when the the term "initializing" replaces "searching",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

You might want to leave the "format data" box unchecked to see it that works. I couldn't play aac files without formatting, but you may not have to format to fix your problem.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again.

Sansa disk e 260


I had the same problem with mine freezing. It happened when I kept pressing the back track button (on left side) to go back to an earlier song. It then froze in the middle of a song, couldn't hear the song, the time of the song was frozen, etc., and the unit stayed lit, despite pressing all the buttons. I tried holding down power but nothing happened. I read another person's post that you need to hold it down 15-30 seconds. I did this and it worked, you just have to hold it down until it shuts down, which was about 15 seconds as suggested, could be longer for others.
For me, next time I wont keep clicking the tracks repeatedly, I'll simply go out of the song and back to the song I want through the menu.
Thank you for the good posts. Glad I didn't have to mess with the battery like others....

Sansa e250 formatting and memory troubles


you should try putting into recovery mode. to do this, connect it to your computer, then push the hold button down so the orange is showing. Next you want to hold down the record button on the side of your mp3 player, now while holding that down also press and hold the power button. in a few seconds it should go to recovery mode. if you need more information, heres a link to the forums. http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=e200
