Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

Micro SDHC use

Hi!

Can you tell me if I can use anything larger than a 2gb MicroSD card in my e280 version 2?

I keep seeing these 8gb MicroSDHC cards and want to use one if I can.
I don't want to buy one and it not work -retailers typically won't accept returns that have been inserted into a device.

What is the difference between the two anyway?

Thanks!
Patte

    Thank you so much Stemyn86!



    I feel much more confident now that My unit will not implode or that I will be left with a card I don't know what to do with. Unless I use it in my laptop or something....right?



    You're awesome!

    And thanks again FixYa Team!

    Sincerely,

    Fearless

Yes you can use them. Version 2 players support all size SDHC cards. However version 1 players can only accept 2 gig regular micro SD cards, which can also be used in version 2 players.
HC means High Capacity.

Sansa e200 wont recognize 8GB microSD


The Sansa e200 series machines work with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use microSD cards, which are 2GB and smaller.

Later model Sansa such as the Fuze will work with microSDHC cards, but not the e200. Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

The e250 works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While physically identical, microSDHC cards are electronically incompatible. You need to use microSD cards 2GB and smaller.

My sansa e260 does not recongnize my 4 gig sdhc micro card...why is this?


It's because the e260 is designed to work with microSD cards, not with microSDHC cards. You need to go with microsD cards 2GB and smaller.

I added a 8GB micro SD card to my e200 MP3 player but the player won't recognize the card. What do I do?


You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While a microSDHC card will fit into the slot, they are incompatible with the Sansa e200 series.

Micro SD Capacity


The e260 will not recognize any microSDHC cards. It will only use microSD cards, which are limited to a maximum of 2GB in size.

My device does not recognize a 2gb micro sd I install. Is there a procedure for installing this?


Glad to have been of help.

Cards bigger than 2GB won't work. The Sansa works with microSD cards. Cards bigger than 2GB are actually microSDHC (the HC stands for High Capacity) and use a different protocol. Newer Sansas such as the Fuze will use them but the e-series won't.

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.

I am considering purchasing a Sandisc Micro SDHC 8Gb card for my Sandisc E260 MP3 Player. Will this be OK?


Hello,

Highest capacity memory card for the e200 series depends on the firmware version.

Consulting the Sandisk page gives next information:
Sansa e200 - verify the version of the player. To check, go to Settings > Info.

For 01.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards
For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards
NOTE: Firmware is not interchangeable.

Does not recognize the micro sd card


First, make sure it's a microSD card and not a microSDHC card. If it's larger than 2GB then it's a microSDHC card and won't work. Second, make sure all your music is in a folder named "MUSIC".
