Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player wont turn on and isn't detected by computer.

My SanDisk Sansa e250 won't turn on at all, won't go to recovery mode, and isn't being picked up by the computer. I've tried holding down the power button for 45 seconds, and that doesn't work either. Please help.

SOURCE: sandisk sansa e250 still sandisk

If the Sandisk sansa e250 appears under your computer you can format it by simply right clicking it and selecting format.

Quick format usually works best but make sure no applications are using the device when you format. If applications are using the device when you attempt to format you will get an error message that will prevent you from continuing.

You can disable any applications using the player by going to the task manager.

WMP won't detect my MP3


See if this helps: -Close all programmes on your computer. -Turn off your Sansa e250. -Attach the cable into the USB port of your computer before attaching it into the actual e250. -The scroll wheel on the Sansa should have turned on by now. -Then it's just a matter of waiting for a few seconds. -Try opening Windows Media Player to see if it detects your device. Otherwise, be patient. Goodluck.

First switch your USB control to MSC. Then turn off your mp3 player and activate the hold icon. Then turn it on while holding the record button with hold icon still being activated. then it will go to recovery mode. Now plug your sandisk into the computer and wait until it says RECOVERY COMPLETE...PLEASE DISCONNECT or when it just says for you to disconnect. This worked on my sandisk, and it hopefully work for you.
