There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.

Substitute the REC button for the volume + button in the instructions below:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

You will need to get your player into Recover mode.

1) Move "Hold Switch" to "Hold"
2) Press REC switch and power on switch untill the display shows "Recover Mode"
3) Then connect your player to your PC. The player should now show up as a removable drive.
4) Open "Notepad" on your PC and save an empty file named sansa.fmt on that removable drive.
5) Safely remove the drive and move "hold" switch to "No-Hold"
6) The display should say something like "formatting"
7) Then your Sansa will restart in MTP mode.

SOURCE: sansa e250...computer will not detect

If you are using a USB connector [that connects extra ports to your computer] it sometimes doesnt work... so if possible hook the USB sansa cable to the main ports in the back of the server. It might also work to hook it in, and then go to 'My Computer' and see if it shows up there. Good Luck =]

SOURCE: My PC (windows XP) doesn't detect Sansa e250 MP3 player

Turn the player off before you plug it in and if it doesn't find it then turn it on while plug in.

Sansa E250 how do I put songs onto the mp3


Go to My Computer and then look for the Sansa 250 icon there. If it doesn't show up, unplug the USB cord and plug it in again. Once you have the icon visible in My Computer, click on it twice and open it up. To load content, go to wherever you have MP3 files or whatever and use Windows Explorer to copy the content from your computer to the Sansa. You can also manage it through Real Player or other MP3 players (Media Monkey).

Cannot delete the songs on mp3


I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'

TO DELETE
1)Plug in
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else

My computer cant open the file in my e250


1. Plug the sansa into your PC. If Windows does not recognize the clip, unplug it, turn it off, and then put the clip in "hold" mode by placing the on/off switch into the hold position. Hold down the middle button on the Clip while you plug the clip back into your PC. It should recognize it.

2. From "My Computer", find the sansa icon and choose format. Note: this will delete all your music files on the device...

3. Download the firmware updater for the sansa
http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376

Cant get songs to appear on player


Songs that are in the correct format will show up in the music menu when you disconnect the mp3 player from the computer. Songs that are in the wrong format will not show up at all when disconnected from the computer.

Open Windows Media Player and click on the icon of the Sansa to view what the songs that have been loaded onto there.

Unreadable files for Sansa e250


Don't worry, there's a solution.

You have to run what's called "Check Disk."
  1. Switch the sansa player into MSC usb mode in the settings under "USB Settings".
  2. Then plug it into your PC and goto my computer.
  3. Then Right click the player's icon and goto properties
  4. Then there should be tabs on the top of the box that pops up. Click "tools"
  5. Then there is an area that says area-checking with a button that says "Check Now..."
  6. A box pops up; Click both option boxes and press start.
  7. Then exit out of all the boxes and safely remove the player.
  8. Unplug player and let it restart.
WARNING: Sometimes it will make files "disappear", but still use space. In that case you will have to format it and put the music back on. It all depends on how "corrupted" the files were. If your files disappear, reply stating so and I will help you out with that if you don't know how to format.

Thank you and please respond with any comments or more questions.

E250 sandisk


If you are using windows xp or vista you do not need any cd's to use the sansa. Simply plug it into your usb port and windows will see it. If you look at the icon next to your clock in the lower right corner of your computer, you should see that a usb device has been plugged in. The next thing to do is go into windows explorer or "My Computer" and look for new drives. those would be the drives on the sansa. probably drive letters e or f. if you have an additional memory card installed in the sansa you will see both. next copy the mp3's into the drives of your sansa. when you unplug the sansa, start it up and go into the music section of the sansa menu. you should see anything that you moved over.
if this has not been helpful or you do not have any luck seeing the additional drives, let me know what your operating system is and we can go from there.
good luck

It won't connect


Seems like the Operating System (is it Windows XP) may have encountered errors loading the native drivers for your player when in MTP mode, or the Windows Media Player version on the PC your plugging your player in is Windows 9 or below. The minimum requirements of the E250 is Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Media Player 10 or above. Falling short of this minimum requirement may cause your player not to be properly recognized. But assuming that the PC you're using the player with meets all the requirements, try to re-load the native driver by plugging your player to the PC and doing the following: Step 1: Right-click on the "My Computer" icon, then select "Manage". This will open the "Computer Management" window. Step 2: Left-click on "Device Manager" Your player comes in two modes -- MTP and MSC -- and is how Windows XP recognizes your player depends on which mode it is set in. To access the modes on your E250, use the menu and navigate as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode If your player is currently in MTP mode, then try this: (1) Left-click in "Windows Portable Device". You should find your E250 indicated there. Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the E250 and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect If your player is currently in MSC mode, then try this: (1): Left-click in "Universal Serial Bus Controller". You should find a "Mass Storage Device" there (make sure that the E250 is the only device plugged in to your PC at this time). Check for an error indicator on the left side of that icon. The error indicator would be yellow-colored icons displayed as "!" or "?" (2): Right-click on the "Mass Storage" and select "Scan for hardware changes" or "uninstall". Both would have the same effect Step 3: Unplug your E250 and plug it back in. This would force Windows to re-load the driver. 90-99% of the time, it would re-load the native drivers correctly. I hope this works.

Deleting files from Sansa e250


The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD: 1. Set the e250 to MSC mode. 2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector. 3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.) To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
