Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sansa e250 My sandisk isn't reading any of the music i have previously put on it. The only time it reads the music is when I connect it to the computer. This started recently when i started to use a micro memory card. Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Re: sansa e250

Hi shadow5991,

have you tried the Sandisk website? It has a forum that contains a lot of information. Your answer may be awaiting you in the forum.

To me it sound like a configuration problem. It's looking for files on it's internal memory and maybe you've put them on a SD media card? When plugged into the PC it does perhaps it reads all sources?

How do I install an e-book on a sansa e250?

you cant. It isnt designed to read file formats. Only video, mp3/wav music, and pictures. I'm sorry but you need a sony reader or kindle for the type of files you want.

Deleted all my songs, and talks about freeing 6MB?

Reset your player back to normal. Note that this will delete all files you have on your player, but it resets the player as if you just bought it. To do a safe reset, please make sure that your player is only a Sansa E250, not Sansa E250R. Here is the link that resets your player back to normal.
If you understand it carefully, you will have no problems. I recommend you read it one by one so that your player doesn't get bricked (kind of un-repairable) because the steps you followed were wrong.

SanDisk Sansa Clip

Use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs downloaded from Limewire to your Sansa. The first time you open Windows Media Player, it will search the "My Music" folder for songs - this may take a few minutes. Mkae sure you have Windows Media Player 10 or 11. You can either move or copy the Limewire songs to the folder called "My Music," or go into Windows Media Player and change Windows Media Player's configuration so that it can read the Limewire downloads folder.

4 GB micro sd and the Sandisk Sansa e250R...

If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)

4GB micro sd card.

According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.
