Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I have a sansa e250 that has worked great until yesterday. I plugged it in and I got a message that the driver was not detected and to get in touch with the makers of sansa. Today I thought I would plug it in and see what happens and the blue circle lit up but the window is black and doesn't show anything. How do I go about finding and downloading drivers. do I download them to my computer or to the sansa e250 itself? This is completely new to me.

SOURCE: SanDisk 2GB Sansa e250 doesn't turn on

Ok. I'm Mexican and my English is not so well but I have an solution that I'll like to share.

You have to download this file http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1449
and unzip in the Desk of windows . It's name is "pp5022.mi4"

Open the Notepad program and create a file whit name "sansa.fmt". IMPORTANT Dont save it like "sansa.txt" or "sansa.fmt.txt"
(We don't have to put anything in the notepad file, live it blank) and saved in the windows Desk same as "pp5022.mi4" file.
If you don't know where is notepad program go to "star" then "programs" then "accessories" and you'll find it there.


NOW...
First step be sure that your sansa is off
then put the lock switch in the position orange (Sansa Locked)
Then press the Microphone bottom and keep holding, at the same press the menu bottom and keep holding too at the same time.
Wait until you are in the Recovery Mode.
Then conect your sansa to the computer.
And it's gonna appear a new window whit a "version.txt" file.
Take the 2 files that you created in the Desk and drag and drop to the sansa. Then unplug your sansa to the pc.
Now turn on the sansa but Unlocked before.
And I hope that your problem have been gone.
Adios

SOURCE: my sansa e250 could not be detected on my computer

In Normal conditions, after plugging in the MP3, amd waiting one or two minutes, the device should be installed automatically by the system. This works in the same way on Vista and on XP. On Windows 98 and Me the device may not work. After the MP3 is installed, you can reach the Sansa under My Computer (Computer). It will be displayed as an external disk named Sansa. If you are using an USB extension or an USB external hub, get rid of it. Try plugging the MP3 to a different USB port. Try unplugging AC charger, and removing laptop batter for ten minutes, sometimes this can fix problems caused by accumulation of electrostatic charges on USB controller. If that does not solve the problem, test a different USB device on the same laptop, and test the MP3 on a different computer. Either one may be faulty. If the problem is the laptop you may fix it by removing and reinstalling USB root hub on hardware devices in Control Panel.

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 =]

I have had my Sansa SanDisk e250 since 2007. It has been working great until yesterday when it suddenly flashed a message saying "synchronize to continue music subscription" Any suggestions?...


It means to sync with your account on your pc. If you have the hardware such as a usb cord plug in the device. If it came with a CD as most do put that in your computer. Let me know if that doesn't work.

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

Sansa icon will not appear in source window


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.

My sansa e250 mp3 player is unable to connect to computer nor recognized to use .It won`t turn on change the modes


turning on to change modes is your problem. If it's completely dead you may need to replace it or refurbish it. Or if the battery is completely dead plug it in all day until you can get it to turn on. ONCE ON then you can worry about getting it to connect. Try this:

Sansa e250 is not showning usb plug in


Yes, you need a driver - I hope you have your installation Cd b/c Sansa has taken the driver off of their website. Look at the previous solutions for this player in Fixya, b/c this questions has been asked many, many times and people have offered a few third party websites where you MIGHT be able to find the driver

Doesnt detect in MTP mode


I had this type of problem, excluding Rhapsody, but when the computer was updated, everything fixed. Sorry I couldn't help more. I think we updated Windows Media Player, but I think ours was 10, not 11. Try running auto update.

WMP won't detect my MP3


See if this helps: -Close all programmes on your computer. -Turn off your Sansa e250. -Attach the cable into the USB port of your computer before attaching it into the actual e250. -The scroll wheel on the Sansa should have turned on by now. -Then it's just a matter of waiting for a few seconds. -Try opening Windows Media Player to see if it detects your device. Otherwise, be patient. Goodluck.

First switch your USB control to MSC. Then turn off your mp3 player and activate the hold icon. Then turn it on while holding the record button with hold icon still being activated. then it will go to recovery mode. Now plug your sandisk into the computer and wait until it says RECOVERY COMPLETE...PLEASE DISCONNECT or when it just says for you to disconnect. This worked on my sandisk, and it hopefully work for you.
