Frozen Sansa e250

My sanDisk sansa e250 just froze up, my computer doesn't even recognize that it's plugged into the usb port. I can plug in other things to that same port and they show up in the computer as a removable storage device (F: I think). The screen on the MP3 player just says SanDisk and occasionally flashes to all white and then back to the logo. Could it be a hidden file, a virus, old age? Thanks Ever So!!!!

Sansa icon will not appear in source window

There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.

My XP system does not recognize Sandisk Sansa e260

The XP did not recognize the device because I used a after- marked USB expander board that did not provide enough power to the device. Plugging to the Motherboard - attached USB port solved the problem.

Sandisk e260 froze after power up.

sounds like a firmware program problem and will have to be replaced. You could download an updated firmware but you will have to get a pc connection. 
After your device is plugged in, are you able to go to  "my computer" and see a drive folder that has your device on it.

My sansa player does not recognize a micro sd when its inserted

Sorry, it doesn't work that way. You can use a separate card reader to put files onto the microSD card. When the card is installed into the Sansa, the Sansa will see the additional music.

Sansa e250

Double check one more time - because i did not post one, but several solutions - did i reset the device? did I upgrade to the latest firmware? did I download the Sansa Recovery Tool and use it (you may have to remove the battery to update the firmware successfully or use the recovery tool)? did I try a different USB port on the same computer? did I try plugging my player into another computer?

If you tried all of the above, and it still doesn't work, then there is a hardware problem with the player and it will need to be replaced - call Sandisk and find out if you are still in warranty.

My sansa e250 won't charge

I had the same problem - the player needs to be unlocked (the little switch on top) to be able to charge - pretty stupid if you ask me but what can you do

WMP won't detect my MP3

See if this helps: -Close all programmes on your computer. -Turn off your Sansa e250. -Attach the cable into the USB port of your computer before attaching it into the actual e250. -The scroll wheel on the Sansa should have turned on by now. -Then it's just a matter of waiting for a few seconds. -Try opening Windows Media Player to see if it detects your device. Otherwise, be patient. Goodluck.
