Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

Lost video and space

I was curious to see if I could play an entire movie on my Sansa e250 2GB MP3 player. So I copied and pasted Rush Hour 3 (700 MB) in the Video Folder. The Video Folder already had couple of sample videos (Lil Monstah er sumthin). After copying finished, I disconnected the USB and went to the Video Folder to look for my movie. But there was nothing there. Even the Sample videos were gone. Even worse, when I reconnected the USB and opened the Video Folder on the computer, nothing was there. And when I checked my free space, it said I only had 1020 GB. The 700 MB of the movie were completely wiped out.

Does anyone know how I can recover this lost space. The movie still seems to be on the MP3 player but there is no way I can access it.

Once looking at the player in explorer, go to tools - folder options - view hidden files and folders. Once you select that and hit okay, your vids should be on there (but a bit opaque). Just simply delete them.

Good luck

Regarding video

You must use the Sansa Media Converter to transfer videos. If the video is DRM-protected (many of Real's movies are), it may not actually convert. But if the video is DRM-free, then the Sansa Media Converter will perform the conversion and load the video onto the player. The Sansa Media Converter may or may not recognize certain file formats, so you may need to download an additional program such as Riva FLV Encoder to convert the Real video to AVI format first - then the Sansa Media Converter will recognize the file.

Element GC-920/940 MP4 disk won't get read correctly

The GC940 DOES play videos. I have successfully converted movies to AMV format and played them, Sometimes the sound will however be a bit low.

Use this program. Make sure you have the updated codecs on your computer, and convert AVI files to AMV, then move them to anywhere on your player. I use a movie folder, and rename them to the movie I want. A full 1.5 hour movie will take about 200-300 mb of space.

Please keep in mind that the movie does have to have an AMV extension, not MP4 or MPEG.

Codecs can be found here -

You go to the sansa website (google it) and download the sansa media converter for the sansa fuze. Install it and drag your movies into it and click convert. Long movies can take an hour on an average computer (be patient) and when it is complete unplug your sansa and make sure the video works.

Music failure!no music plays

for your sansa to work, please do make sure that you have installed the manager utility on your computer because the sansa will not be able to play your files straight from copy and pasting

good luck hope this helps.

Music DB??? clear 6 MB???

Have you tried re-formatting the device?  This will "wipe" memory, getting rid of corrupted files, etc. and should restore use.
