Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Formatting OK, I read the User Manual for the Sansa e250. It mention Format as an option, and which seemed to be around the settings menu, but I never was able to find this option. I need to format my device back to factory settings; no music, videos, pics, nothing. I have tried a couple of tricks but nothing seems to get the job done right. Ayudame! Porfavor. Please, any suggestions would help.

    Thanks for the advice, but already tried a and b. For some reason, the Format is gone, which kinda sucks. I have done the recovery tool, and it didn't seem to do much, but I will try again. Thanks for the suggestions.

Hi,

If for some reason the Format option is gone, then perhaps some of the firmware or settings have been drastically changed or worst, corrupted.

A couple of things you can try:
a. do a soft reset - press on the Power/Menu for 15 seconds;
b. do a full settings reset - Main Menu/Settings/Reset All;
c. do a Format - Main Menu/Settings/Format but all in the internal memory will be erased;

If the above will not work, you can also try:
1. download and run in your PC Sansa Connect Recovery Tool
2. read the How to use the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool and follow the instructions carefully;
3. doing #1 will erase the corrupted files, unfortunately so with everything else. It will then restore the device software to an uncorrupted state.

Hope this be of help/ Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Just bringing you uptodate. Left a message for my tech buddy (computerrep ) to post here. I have no doubt that he will be able to resolve your concern since he is with the firm that manufactured your unit.

    With the indulgence of computerrep, I am taking the liberty of providing the link to his solution to a slightly similar problem.

    Should this be corrective, it would be appropriate that he be credited for solving the problem.

    Thanks for using Fixya.

Is San Disk memory card compatible with Digimax 401 ? I inserted one and got the message card errior.


Hi,
SD Memory Card is compatible with your Digimax 401 camera. You just need to format the card.
Formatting a memory card
** This is used for formatting the memory card. If you run [FORMAT] on the memory card, all
images, including the protected images, will be deleted. Be sure to download important
images to your PC before formatting the memory card.
** If the memory card is not inserted, the internal memory will be formatted.
** Be sure to format the memory card if you are using a newly purchased or non-initialized
memory card, if it contains data that the camera cannot recognize, or if it contains images
captured with a different camera.

Formatting a Memory Card
1. In any mode other than Voice Recording mode, press the MENU button.
2. Press the LEFT/ RIGHT button and select the [SETUP] menu tab.
3. Select the [FORMAT] menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the RIGHT button.
4. Select a desired sub menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the OK button.
- If [No] is selected : The memory card will not be formatted.
- If [Yes] is selected : A [PLEASE WAIT!] message appears and the memory card will be formatted. If you ran FORMAT in Play mode, a [NO IMAGE!] message will appear.

Sansa E 250 bad track


On your e250, go to the "Settings" menu, select "USB Mode", and set it to "MSC". Then connect your e250 to your computer. It show up under My Computer as a "removable disk". Right click on it and select "Format". Click on the "Start" button, making sure that Quick Format is NOT checked. Wait for the formatting to complete, unplug your e250, wait for it to reboot (or force it to reboot if necessary), plug it back in, and copy your songs back onto it.

Formatting the sansa e250


Yes, formatting will retain the interface and everything else necessary to run the device. It only removes what you have put on the unit. Also, format anytime you begin to have strange problems with the device that can't be explained...like songs that don't appear after you've transferred them.
