Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)
I see a solution to this problem for the sansa e-250, and I tried doing that, but after i get to the found new hardware screen it says my device isnt found? ( I run the recovery tool, and then I get that my specific device isnt found)
It gets on the refresh database screen and goes half way then freezes, thats all it will do besides turn on and off. So, I hold down the record button and then plug into the usb port and then get to running the recovery tool and says my specific model isnt found. Is there a diff solution for my specific model. Its a 2 gb player... I am pretty sure its a c-200, or an e-200... Pretty sure its c-200!
I had repeated calls into the sandisk customer center, and eventually, after they tried to help me out, I was asked to send the player back and the company is replacing my player. They told me there is a 4% rate of failure on their products. So, Hopefully after I get the 2nd player, I wont have any other issues with it. I HOPE !!

I had the "Refresh Database" problem with my C250, it just sat there after turning it on! However, the GOOD NEWS is, I corrected it! First I connected it to my PC, then FORMATTED the unit. This gave me an empty player that at least would turn on. Then I downloaded the Sansa "Updater" from the SanDisk website. After setting up the updater software, I connected the C250. It automatically checked for any new firmware, and loaded it into the player. After that I restarted the C250 and it again came up OK without any music loaded. The last thing I did was to load only 1.8 GB worth of music files. My take on the problem is that if you overload the memory, or interupt a file while loading, then the "datbase" function never gets done. I've had mine running for about a week now without problems! Hope it works for you too! <Good Luck> David
