How to expand my memory and what type of memory card to buy

It will certainly take a 2GB microSD card.

This link on Sandisk forums tells how to check if you have a version 2 that will take a 4GB.

Where to buy one? My local supermarket has them, or you could check a camera store, or even office supplies. as well as the usual computer or electronics stores.

Adding a 8GB MICRO SD card to the Sansa e260

I read somewhere that a 4 GB Micro SD card is the largest you can put in the SanDisk Sansa E260 expansion slot. It's maximum capacity is 8 GB, with internal + external memory put together. This is from what I've read. Hope this helps.

My computer will read my e250 but not my microsd card

Switch your player into MSC mode via Main Menu > Settings > USB mode. When the player is connected it will show as two drives, the player, and the microSD card just like a card reader. You can transfer files directly to the expansion card.
