Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
This seems to happen when the database gets corrupted.
1. Turn off the player.
2. Plug the usb cable to the computer, don't plug it to the player.
3. Slide the lock switch to the right, you will see an orange strip.
4. Hold the menu button to start the player. Don't release it yet. Wait until a shutdown message appears and the player goes off again.
5. Plug the usb cable to the player end. The player should go on again. The player should mount as a disk on your computer. Find this disk and back up its contents.
6. Format the player, as explained elsewhere.
7. Disconnect the usb cable. This time the database should refresh properly. Once this is done, slide the the lock switch to the left and turn off the player.
8. Turn the player back on. It should work, but you will have to load your stuff again.
9. Redo steps 1 to 5, except that now should copy your music, videos, etc, back into the player.
10. Repeat step 7.
11. Turn the player back on. It should work again.
