I have this problem too. This player is a disaster. All of my mp3s were generated by NoteBurner, so I know they're not the problem. The problem is this POS MP3 player. I'd ask for my money back, but I know better. Last SanDisk product I'll buy for a long while.

This happens when you disconnect from your computer. The device refreshes to find the new files. Try a more solid connection. If the problem persists, try formatting again from updates here: http://www.sansa.com/download

Make sure they are all correct file format and that the tags don't contain weird symbols that the player might not recognize.

Stucked at Refresh database


When the Sansa reads "refreshing database," what it is doing is going through all the songs you've loaded on to it, pulling out the "tag" information (Artist, Album, Song Title, Genre) so it can add this information to its own database which it uses to display the songs to you in its menus.

If it gets stuck during this process, usually it's because of a corrupt song file, or a song file in a format it doesn't understand.

Note that the e280 is only able to play MP3 and WMA audio formats. If you've loaded a different type of audio file onto your Sansa, you'll need to remove them.

If the songs you've recently loaded have all been MP3 and/or WMA, you may have loaded a corrupted file onto your Sansa. Try removing the songs you recently added, and see if the problem goes away.

"Refresh Database" never ends!


If you try to load too many songs onto the player initially, it may take up to an hour to get past Refresh database. Unfortunately, if you shut the player off while it is refreshing, it will more than likely ruin your player. Run the Sansa Recovery Tool or Update the Firmware on your Player as a workaround. Make sure the hold/lock switch isn't activated, just as a safeguard.

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?


You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

I cant find the songs to delete and it the refresh database fails everytime


If you cant see it in MTP mode, the MTP drivers may not be installed on your computer.

Its easier to do this than explain the other solution.

Follow these instructions and you will be back in business.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe

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.

Screen remains on Refresh Database everytime I turn it on.


I've run into this also. a few options.. 1) Use the Sansa Updater software to upgrade firmware. (available on Sandisk website) 2) Sometimes adding a couple new songs back wakes it up.

How do you refresh database?


This just means that the player is refreshing the songs on the list, it does not mean that you have to do anything.
