I have sansa e250..but when i turn it on it goes off again..and when i plug it to the computer it doesn't read it..i don't know how to redownload the software!!can you help?

You need to install drivers so your computer can recognize that something is plugged in.
Go to this website

Choose Sansa - e200 series in the first box, skip the second box, and then choose your operating system for example Windows XP, then click on the find drivers icon. If the drivers fail to work it could be a component in the player itself is damaged; I would see about getting the player looked at in Walmart or Bestbuy.

Turn the player off before you plug it in and if it doesn't find it then turn it on while plug in.

I need a driver for my Sansa e250 for windows xp

Get all the needed software from Sandisk's website, the manufacturer. You should not need a driver for Windows XP - it should automatically recognize it. I would strongly suggest downloading and reading the user manual for this player - also available from Sandisk's website.
