    No, i went to my computer, clicked on the sandisk sansa e250, then right clicked on the PPI NAND which looked like a disk drive, and clicked format. Then it said, "warning, formatting will erase all data on this device...etc" and i did that, but then it said that it was incomplete, and now I have 1.84 GB on it somehow, even though I wiped it.

    I feel really stupid. How exactly do I complete the format? When I right click, all it says is "Format.."

When you did the format did you do it with a tool or directly through windows?

Go to this link and get the sansa firmware updater and run it. this will help your player get back to where it was. working!

    you didn't complete the format.
    thats the problem.
    go into my computer and look for your drive
    then right click, format
    when the screen comes up make sure you format fat32
    and do a complete format not a quick format, it will take a while but it should work.
    if it is not correctly formatted it will not work

    you need to read the post i just sent
    it will pop up a window and you can change the format from a dropdown list in the window.
    do not check quick format

    Read this post completely before responding back you are not reading carefully
    Good Luck

Music will not load to player


Some music files are in a DRM-protected WMA or AAC format that does not allow you to transfer the songs to certain mp3 players, even though the songs will play fine on your computer. To get around this problem, make sure that you buy a subscription level that has transfer rights - or, better yet, only download songs that are in true mp3 format. Songs in mp3 format do not have copy-protection on them, so they will never give you error messages, headaches, etc.

Sansa e250 formatting and memory troubles


you should try putting into recovery mode. to do this, connect it to your computer, then push the hold button down so the orange is showing. Next you want to hold down the record button on the side of your mp3 player, now while holding that down also press and hold the power button. in a few seconds it should go to recovery mode. if you need more information, heres a link to the forums. http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=e200

Two problems with my mp3 player


Hi Mina. An internal memory corruption might have occurred on your player, and would need to format your player through "Disk Management" (I'm assuming you have Windows XP or Vista). Here's how: (1) First, set your player to MSC mode by navigating your menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode Choose "MSC" (2) Open "Computer Management" by right-clicking on the "My Computer" icon, then selecting "Manage" (3) Your "Computer Management" window should be divided into 2 panes. On the left pane, click on "Disk Management" (4) On the upper right pane of "Disk Management", you should find the drive letter corresponding to your Sansa E250. The lower section also contains the drive # pertaining to your E250. Right-click on either drive letters pertaining to the E250 and select "Format". Follow the on-screen prompts. Make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox remains un-checked. In general, Disk Management is more the effective tool for formatting your E250 and assuming the format processing completed without any errors, you may now use your player as you would. You may want to set the mode of your MP3 player back to "MTP" (if you're going to download subscription songs -- otherwise, just leave it in MSC mode) by navigating your menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode Choose "MTP" In case you get the error "Unable to Complete Format" or the format process is unable to complete, you may want to call the SanDisk Tech Support guys for more advanced troubleshooting (I call `em when I'm at my wit's end lol) I hope it works :)

My mp3 wont let me convert songs, when i sync on wmp it says "error"


When i had this problem, i went to where it said Sansa e250 with the picture right clicked and it said fromat, this let me put my songs on the device but when it formats it everything on the device is deleted and you have to put it all back on, so if you're a patient person this the road to go on.

Error copying file or folder


You can always reformat it. If you plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. Your fixer, Wild2DMaxx
