2GB Sansa e250 won't connect to my PC

Hello,

I just bought a 2GB Sansa e250 and it seems to be working fine since I have access to the pre-loaded files, but I cannot connect it to my PC. I keep getting an error message from the "New Hardware Wizard" that reads:

Cannot Start this Hardware
There was a problem installing this hardware:
USB Mass Storage Device
This device cannot start. (Code 10)
Click Finish to start a troubleshooter that can help you resolve the problem

But the troubleshooter cannot help me. My PC runs Windows XP Home Edition.

Many thanks.

Daniel

    Sansa e240 is recognized by XP Home (upward chimes), but shows two entries in Device Manager: (1) USB Mass Storage Device and (2) Unknown Device. Details state "The device can not start". Trouble shooter and Install Wizard both bomb (Surprise! Surprise!). Installed MANDATORY Best Buy application and the REQUIRED update; no progress.

Sansa e250 mp3 player won't recogize micro card


Make sure the card is a microSD card, not a microSDHC card. The e250 only works with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a Sansa e250 and I just bought a 8GB microSD card. Ideally, I would be able to add 10GB worth of music and playlists, however I can't get the Sansa player to read the music from the microSD...


The Sansa e250 works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While microSDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the e250.

microSD cards max out at 2GB in size, but you can put your music on several of them and swap them in and out. It's not as convenient as having them all on one card, but that's the best you can do with the e250.

Some later models such as the Fuze will accept microSDHC cards.

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".

More memory?


I haven't tried this, but I see no reason it why it shouldn't work. I have used an 2gb expansion card in my Sansa and it works just fine. The only problem is it will only play music off of an SD card, no video. I guess this is only to much memory if you don't need it. Rough guess is that a 4gb will hold roughly 1000 songs. I would only go for the smaller sd card if there was a substantial price difference and you won't be needing the extra space.

Sansa e250 computer problems


Try using Windows Media Player instead, and see if you get the same result. If it loads in Windows Media Player, then the problem is with WinAmp and not your Mp3 player. When you say it loads half-way, do you mean it loads half the songs and then shuts off? Is the Sansa running on low battery? WinAmp has some kind of update released in the past week - did you download the update, and then experience the problem? It's probably not this, because other users have had the same problem that you are reporting since at least Christmas 2007.

The following is an advice from another Sansa user, so I haven't been able to verify it myself:
"I have to have WinAmp open and a song playing then connect my player and then it will work fine. If I just connect my player then start WinAmp it crashes"

If all of the above fails, reformat your player and start over from scratch. Let me know how everything works out - this is an issue that not even the Sansa website seems to have an answer for.

Sansa e 250 wont work with windows 2000!


Hello. I just bought my e250 last week and I am running Win2k. I was aware of its system requirement for Win XP, but I have been able to use the player successfully. I you set the player USB mode to MSC under Settings and make sure your window explorer is set to view hidden files and folders, you will have access to drop and drag music like normal files. I found other suggested at this Sandisk forum as well: http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/search?board_id=e200&submitted=true&q=windows+2000

4GB micro sd card.


According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.
