    I put my 4 GB SD card in my player, but it won't show up on my computer!!!

    I have both a c240 and c250. I purchased a Kingston 8 gig microsd,

  • Compliant — with the SD Specification Version 2.00

  • Well it works on my c250 but not on my c240. So either c240 is not compliant with SD Specification Version 2.00 or my player's defective.

    just an fyi.

    My Sansa c240 does not seem to detect the 4gig SanDisk microSD. It is plugged in all the way but does not register on the MP3 under Settings - System Info or as an additional drive when view on my laptop via the USB connection. Any ideas anyone???

    Yeah I am also not able to view the 4GB Sandisk Micro SD card. If someone knows how to fix this I would be eternally grateful.

    Why my sansa e 250 dont read the micro sd? the micro sd is sandisk 8 gb.

    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.

    Sansa c240 and a 4 GB Micro SD HC card.

    Sansa C240 can only read SD cards that are NOT SDHC - that means it can only read up to a 2gb Micros SD card.

    Max. micro sd card size compatible for Sansa C240

    It depends on the version. v1 players can support up to 2GB. v2 players can support up to 8GB.

    You can find out what version you have by going into Settings -> System and look at the version. If it starts with a 01 then it's a v1, if it starts with an 03 then it's a v2.


    You can use a card up to 8GB if it's a v1 player by installing Rockbox on it. It's a 3rd party firmware for some mp3 players - although you should make sure to read any instructions for installing it, as well as read the manual.


    I will stress this again: make sure you know what you are doing by reading installation instructions and the manual.

    In order to install Rockbox on your player it needs to be in MSC mode (Settings -> USB -> MSC). If your player doesn't have the USB option in the Settings menu then you will need to downgrade your firmware. There's info on this in the Sandisk forums about how to do this.

    Adding a 8GB MICRO SD card to the Sansa e260

    I read somewhere that a 4 GB Micro SD card is the largest you can put in the SanDisk Sansa E260 expansion slot. It's maximum capacity is 8 GB, with internal + external memory put together. This is from what I've read. Hope this helps.

    Micro sd 4gb card problems.

    Check the Sansa tutorials at
    to make sure you have followed all the steps first.

    In my experience, every mp3 player/photo frame/etc with a card reader has a MAXIMUM memory limit for the type of card that it can read. It is possible that the Sansa player can only read 2GB Micro SD cards or smaller - and thisi nformation may not have been available when they printed the manual. If you have followed all instructions, and it still will not read the card, try switching to a 2GB Micro SD card.

    Help again

    If you have another device to test the card in, try that. Then you will know if the card is bad.

    Accessing MicroSD Card - Sansa c240


    The memory won't read 9GB. It should read 1GB of the built-in memory, and then 8GB or slightly less from the SD card. They are actually separate "drives". From this standpoint, it seems like there are 2 possibilities:

    1) The player isn't compatible with that new, top of the line SD card. (Most likely the case.)

    2) The card is defective and needs to be exchanged under warranty or your money refunded.

    Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!
