Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sansa e250 I've got an expansion SD card in mine, but everytime you switch it on it shows "rebuilding database" and takes forever to properly switch on and play. This is really frustrating. Any ideas?

Hi,
Using an external card reader, back up the data on the card and then reformat the card. Then put the card back into the player. Hopefully this should solve your problem.

    * Try reseting the database without formatting
    If you have problems with the database (like ghost files) there is no need to format the whole player. Switch the player in MSC-mode (Settings->USB Mode) and connect it to your pc. If you haven't already done so, activate hidden files. Now go to your Sansa. You should see some new folders there after you activated the hidden files. Go to System\Data\ and delete the Pp5000.dat. After you unplugged the player it should rebuild the complete database.

Why won't my Sansa 250R won't recognize an sd card?


Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card. The e250 works with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Can I attach an 8 GB Micro SD Card in the expansion slot of my Sansa e250? If not, what is the maximum storage size it supports?


The e250 uses microSD cards, not microSDHC cards. The maximum size of microSD cards is 2GB. Anything larger are microSDHC cards.

Micro sd probelem


Well, the most memory from a micro sd card the Sansa mp3 player can take is 2gb, because anything more will freeze up the player because it was not designed to read that much memory. So if you have a 1gb or a 2gb memory card, then you can use them.

How to access SD micro card on sansa e250


I expected to find the new playlists on the SD card as a separate file to access and play. Instead the SD card songs show on up the Sansa menu simply added among the existing songs / artists stored in the Sansa. Its not a solution but they are there. Since using the SD card, my Sansa does databse refresh everytime it starts, whether SD card is in it or not.

Try to reformat the card. Go to My Computer then right click the drive corresponding to your sd card and select format. Put some music back on, and try again. When your Sansa boots you should get a message stating it's refreshing the database. Good luck.

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.
