Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
My sansa e250 recognizes my micro sd chip and how much space is presently being used but it wont recognize the songs on it. my windows media player will show me whats on my sd chip but the sansa e250 wont. it onlt tells me how much space is being used.
Go to the knowledge base on the Sansa site and find this (chances are you have an SDHC card in an incompatible unit):
Sansa e200 - verify the version of the player. To check, go to SETTINGS > INFO.
For 01.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards
For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards
NOTE: Firmware is not interchangeable.
Sansa e200R - up to 2GB microSD cards
Sansa e100 - supports SD cards up to 2GB

If you are seeing the "Bad Track" window pop up on your player when you try to play the song, the file has become corrupt. If it just does not show the songs at all on the screen try these step, you could try putting the songs on again, this must me done with the card in the player, in MSC mode, and synced with windows media player. When in media player under the sync tab, you will see two sansa items (one ususally says removeable disk "drive name", click that one and sync your music to it. The drag and drop method works, but with a higher rate to corrupt your music. Make sure you have windows media player 11 aswell. Also, when the card is in the player, while it is on, don't mess around with it, (ie. pull it out). I have found that if you put the card in after the player is on it doesn't always refresh the database properly. and finally, make sure you format the card incase it is corrupt, because it will show how much space is being used, but can't be used to store media/play it.
As for the video, as far as I know you can't play video's off of your SD card, only music and photo's.

I had the same problem where I would connect my Sanse e250 to my PC and Windows would only recognize the player, not the Micro SD card. I fixed this by switching Modes on the Player from PlaysForSure to Rhapsody. My PC will now recognize both the player and the micro SD card.

Change the mode of the player to MSC and connected the player to the computer, this will help detect the microsd as a removable disc drive.Transferring songs to the card is via drag and drop or copy and paste.
