The Sansa charges via the USB cable. Fully charged, it should be good for 12-15 hours of playing. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge external devices. If your computer doesn't charge the Sansa, try a different computer. You can also charge the Sansa using other USB charges, such as you'll see for charging cell phones from a wall outlet or a car cigarette lighter.
Remove the back and check and see if the battery isn't fully connected I put a folded peace of paper and put it on top of the battery
and put the back on.
Usb mode is in settings push center button choose between msc or mtp....
will allow you to see the expansion card mtp won't.....MTP shows you your music folder in the media folder thats where you put your music
plus expansion.....If no usb mode the player is manufactored to be in msc mode
make sure your usb 2.0 driver
is installedMSC is best reate a music1 folder and put music in there then there is no switching back and forth to mtp msc
In this case wat u can do is on the Mp3 player itself u will see a slide switch which will say Hold/Unhold or Lock/Unlock............ Just make sure it is not Locked or On Hold and then try to turn it on......... Good Luck....... Take Care And now it should recognise it
turning on to change modes is your problem. If it's completely dead you may need to replace it or refurbish it. Or if the battery is completely dead plug it in all day until you can get it to turn on. ONCE ON then you can worry about getting it to connect. Try this:
There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.
Ok. I'm Mexican and my English is not so well but I have an solution that I'll like to share.
You have to download this file http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1449 and unzip in the Desk of windows . It's name is "pp5022.mi4"
Open the Notepad program and create a file whit name "sansa.fmt". IMPORTANT Dont save it like "sansa.txt" or "sansa.fmt.txt"
(We don't have to put anything in the notepad file, live it blank) and saved in the windows Desk same as "pp5022.mi4" file.
If you don't know where is notepad program go to "star" then "programs" then "accessories" and you'll find it there.
NOW... First step be sure that your sansa is off then put the lock switch in the position orange (Sansa Locked) Then press the Microphone bottom and keep holding, at the same press the menu bottom and keep holding too at the same time. Wait until you are in the Recovery Mode. Then conect your sansa to the computer. And it's gonna appear a new window whit a "version.txt" file. Take the 2 files that you created in the Desk and drag and drop to the sansa. Then unplug your sansa to the pc. Now turn on the sansa but Unlocked before. And I hope that your problem have been gone. Adios
