Re: Sandisk Sans e250 player stop working
Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Initially, you can hold down the power button down for 20seconds to do a reset.
You should do the "safely remove" procedure when unplugging the MP3 player from the computer's USB port, otherwise it will get fried and damaged over time. If you have just been simply pulling the plug off all these times, then I guess that was what happened - the battery got fried. Anyway, just try to plug your MP3 player to another USB port on the computer or better yet, to other computer's usb port.
See if this helps:
-Close all programmes on your computer.
-Turn off your Sansa e250.
-Attach the cable into the USB port of your computer before attaching it into the actual e250.
-The scroll wheel on the Sansa should have turned on by now.
-Then it's just a matter of waiting for a few seconds.
-Try opening Windows Media Player to see if it detects your device.
Otherwise, be patient. Goodluck.
If you installed the firmware update, you might have forgotten to change the device to MSC mode.. try going to settings>USB mode>MSC
This should probably work..
to stop a song while its playing, click the |<< button while you have the screen with the current song. (you can pause a song on this same screen with the >|| button) If you have gone back to any of the menu screens, wait for a couple seconds and the player will automatically go back tot he song display screen so you can stop the song.
Try removing the battery and make sure the player is getting powered up when connected via USB.
I've found that it sometimes behaves a bit funny if you turn the player of when it's busy playing a song (instead of stopping play first).
