Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

WMP can't find Sansa E250 in MTP mode but can in MSC mode

I installed a 2GB micro SD and then my player got weird. It says all 4GB are filled and that I have 900 songs. But I can't sync in MTP mode, only in MSC mode (yes really!). My computer no longer shows the player in MTP mode but in MSC mode it shows two drives, but I can only acess one. So if I remove the micro SD card I can access it separately through an SD reader, and WMP thinks it's a player! I can't access the Sansa E250 memory separately at all!

Help!!!!

MY SANSA 250 NOT DETECTING MTP MODE AND IM UNALBLE TO UPLOAD


It's not to normal that it doesn't recognize the MTP mode. I think reading the minimal requierments should be useful. Thereafter untill I recomend you to use Windows Media Player. You put the music you want to be on your sansa in the WMP library. Then you go on the Syncronisation tab upwards to the vizualisation window. and the rest should roll on

Adding 2gb mini sd


Hi,
1. Make sure that you have Windows Media Player 11 (Open WMP --> Goto Help --> About WMP --> v??)  2. If you do not have it, install it from this location: http://www.microsoft.com/mediaplayer   3. Change the Mode on Device: Go into Menu --> Settings --> USB Mode:Auto Detect/MTP/MSC  4. Select MSC and it should work. If it does not try Powercycling your device (turn it off and then turn it on).  5. Try other modes as well. 
Keep the device in AutoDetect Mode and follow the instructions below (Only for XP):
i. Connect your Device ii. Right click on My Computer and select Manage iii. Select Device Manager iv. At the right hand side look out for Portable devices and click on the + symbol to display your device v. Right Click on the device and select Update Drivers vi. Select 'No, not at this time' and click Next vii. Select 'Install from a list or specific location' and then click Next viii. Select 'Don't search, I'll choose the driver to install' and then click Next ix. Select 'MTP Device' and then click Next. This should install the device and then should be ready for  use with WMP or any other media player

Sansa mp3 player could not detect micro sd add on card


I believe you can fix it by going on the player, then to settings, then to USB mode, and switching it from MTP to MSC. If you're in MSC already and it fails to recognize, then I don't know. :(

Micro sd 4gb card problems.


Check the Sansa tutorials at http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1468
to make sure you have followed all the steps first.

In my experience, every mp3 player/photo frame/etc with a card reader has a MAXIMUM memory limit for the type of card that it can read. It is possible that the Sansa player can only read 2GB Micro SD cards or smaller - and thisi nformation may not have been available when they printed the manual. If you have followed all instructions, and it still will not read the card, try switching to a 2GB Micro SD card.

Sansa mp3 player could not detect micro sd add on card


Anything over 4GB is a Micro SDHC card, not a Micro SD card. It is a completely different type of card format on the inside, and despite the compatible size and shape, it will not work on devices labeled only as Micro SD card compatible. The Sansa e200 and up (e250, e260, ect.) are NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MICRO SDHC CARDS (Micro SD cards that exceed 2GB in capacity).

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.

Sansa e100 - supports SD cards up to 2GB

I accidentaly sinc music to my sansa e250 from windows media player and it wont come off!!!


Mp3 files can be loaded using either WMP or Windows file manager (Explorer) but a different USB setting is required by each. WMP uses the MTP setting while Explorer uses MSC. If you used the wrong setting this may have caused your problem. Also for some reason MP3 files loaded using a file manager will not appear when trying to view them using WMP. To solve the issue I used the MSC setting to view all of my MP3's using file manager. I then deleted the ones I had recently added, changed the setting back to MTP and reloaded them using WMP. Worked like a charm. Hope that helps.
