Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Expandable Memory I have had my Sansa E250 K for about 2 years now, I decided to add expandable memory using the Micro Sd slot. After about 2 months of the use the Sansa E250 had destroyed the micro SD card and the card would no longer work. I bought another one thinking that it was just something wrong with the card and the exact same thing happened. Has anyone else had this problem?

Re: Expandable Memory

If music won't load onto Micro Sd card:
1) go to settings
2) go to USB mode
3)change to MSC format

Now you're good to go.

I inserted a 2gb micro sd card into my 4gb sansa fuze for more memory and it's still saying I don't have enough space on it when I go to add a song off of limewire

Inserting a microSD card into the Sansa does nto magically expand its internal memory. The card is a separate chunk of memory. You can move some songs from the internal memory to the card to free up some internal memory. Or you can add the new song to the card.

Sansa mp3 player could not detect micro sd add on card

I believe you can fix it by going on the player, then to settings, then to USB mode, and switching it from MTP to MSC. If you're in MSC already and it fails to recognize, then I don't know. :(

Trouble with expanded memory

The Sansa Express was only designed to hold up to a 2 GB Micro SD card because that is as much expandable memory it was meant to read. Anything bigger as in your case will cause the player to go slower than normal as it tries to read the card and after a while, it will most likely freeze. If you try it with a 2 GB Micro SD card, it should work.

I have an rca "pearl" with a micro sd slot, what is this for? i put one in and gained no extra capacity for songs, so is it a backup or what and how is it supposed to work?

sir, micro sd slot is a expansion memory of your mp3. like if you dont have any bytes left on your mp3 and you want to add another songs then sd memory card will be the option. so that you can listen a songs from your mp3 internal memory and micro sd memory card. by the way micro sd is cheaper than any other memory card selling in the market.

thank you for using fixya
