Well it sounds like you need to backup your Data meaning your Music on the MP3 Player, and put it back on to your Computer. That is the problem that you are having

I added a 2gb mirco SD card to my Sansa e270 6.0gb player, but the memory is still only showing 10mb of the original 6.0 gb available for use. How do I get the Sansa to recognize and use the 2 gb mirco SD...

Hi,when you purchase a new micro SD card before use, youwill need to format the memory card so that you will be able to know the actual size of the Micro SD card by checking the details after formatting it.

After formatting the micro SD card and checking the details, if you still do not see the accurate size which is about 1.88mb or the about, that means the micro SD card you bought needs to be replaced. Not a good one.

Have a nice day.

Can I attach an 8 GB Micro SD Card in the expansion slot of my Sansa e250? If not, what is the maximum storage size it supports?

The e250 uses microSD cards, not microSDHC cards. The maximum size of microSD cards is 2GB. Anything larger are microSDHC cards.

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. :(

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.

Micro SD card is no longer recognized

make sure the card is 1 gb or less - a Sandisk card would be best since it's a Sandisk player

Write protect

The Sansa e260 can only use microSD cards. I believe the 4GB model can only handle the 1 or 2 GB cards. If you try to do any SDHC ones, then you may run into problems. I suggest right clicking the SD card on your computer screen after it pops up. Select Properties. There can be some help in this area. I suggest going to tools, and check for error problems.

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)

Micro sd card

You can only see the card thru My Computer as a removable disk.

You can manually transfer the files thru My Computer by dragging & dropping then onto the card.

Best of Luck.
