Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
Today out of no where my screen turned blue & the light of the wheel thing didnt turn off the whole time. I just left it until it died. Then I got home, put it to charge & it worked for a little bit. Then it just turned off on me completely. After I went online looking for a solution & found the instructions under me ( there's more but I only copied where I got up to). Everything was working just fine until when I entered the sansa program it said something that it couldn't read because it needed to be in msc mode, & mine says its in msd mode. What do I do?
1. Make sure the player is powered off
2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface
3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button.
4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E250 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode"
5. Connect your E250 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above)
6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E250 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6.
Next, Apply the firmware for the E250 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time):

Our player had died after we re-formatted it and forgot to update. oops. =) but this worked. Thanks much for the post.
