Deleting files through Format:

1. Formatting the player erases all files in the player, and oftentimes this is the best option to ensure that all files are removed and any corruption eliminated. Also, it is best to format the player when in MSC mode.
2. When the appears as a drive letter (under MSC mode), right-click on that drive letter and select "Format". On the "Format" pop-up window, click "Start" to begin the format process.
3. Follow the on-screen prompts and safely remove the player from your PC when the "Format Complete" display appears.
4. Unplug the player from the PC and when the player is powered up, the message "No Files" should appear on the player's LCD screen
5. Switch the mode back to "MTP", or continue to use "MSC". Note: It is best to use "MTP" when you are transferring subscription music to the player

***Or you can use windows media player to format your player....
Open up your windows media player and click on the sync tab..assuming that you have windows media player 11...right click on the device and hit format..if you have windows media player there should be a little pen or pencil on the right side..just click on it and hit format..
I hope this helps. :)
Please rate accordingly...

Transfer WMA files to Sansa c250


There two types of WMA file - protected and unprotected (also called "DRM-free" and "DRM-encrypted"). Some protected or encrypted WMA's may allow you to play back on your computer, but will not allow you to play those same files on an mp3 player. There are only two ways around your problem - one is expesnive, and one is illegal:
1) You can purchase additional rights on Overdrive to transfer your audiobooks to a "portable device" (by which, they include mp3 players).
2) You can download a program such as Tunebite to strip the Overdrive of it's DRM license, rendering the file of its protection (I would NOT reccomend this route).

The WMA files that you had that worked before were either unprotected, or were protected but had transfer rights.

Why my sansa c250 does not record the voice in mp3, only in wma?


Unfortunately, Sandisk didn't include any options in their firmware to record in any other format.

If you happen to have a version 1 c250 then you can install Rockbox on it and have 4 recording format options, as well as being able to choose what bitrate to record in for the mp3 format.

To find out if your player is a v1 go to Settings -> System Info
If the version starts with 01 then it's a v1 player and you can install Rockbox on it. If it starts with 03 then it's a v2 player and you're stuck with the wav format, as Rockbox is not yet available for v2 c250 players.

I bought a 4gb Sanadisk microSDHC card for my Sansa c250 and Media player is not reading the card?


You must find the Sansa c250 menu that allows you to format the microSDHC card for use with media player.  Most microSDHC  cards are shipped unformatted.  It is a new technology and there is no standard format for microSDHC cards as they are used to store many types of data.  My cell phone uses one to store music, video,and photos, so the phone's manufacturer included a format command choice in the appropriate "phone memory" menu.  Look for the microSDHC card in a "memory" menu. Follow the prompts to format the card.  This only works on a NEW card.  If you format a used card, ALL data will be lost.  Formatting a card or a hard disk effectively prepares the memory to be written on, erasing any data previously written on it.
