Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
My Sansa player starts and then goes to the opening screen and just runs through the animation sequence, but never goes beyond that, it just keeps cycling through. Additionally, when I connect it to my computer to charge it, the battery will charge but the computer does not recognize that it's connected and accessing files or uploading new ones is impossible.
Previously, I'd had problems with the files--it would say that almost all of the file space was taken up, yet I'd removed all of my files from the player, so it should've had a ton of free space.
I already tried resetting it (several times), physically removing the battery, and attempted to update the firmware and reinstall everything (but as the computer does not see it there, it's difficult!) Any suggestions...??
This should take care of it.
You can follow these steps to erase and start anew.
Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.
You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.
- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.
Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.
Best of Luck.
