Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

Microsd makes Sansa e280 screw up

I have a kingston 2gb microsd card and for the first two months it worked great but for the past two months practically every time I turn it on now it will get halfway through the loading process and start showing a scrolling screen of squiggly lines. Sometimes the lines are blue, sometimes green, occasionally grey. I end up having to hold the power button down for 15 seconds to shut it off and reboot it without the card in it to get it to boot up correctly. Sometimes I can put the card back in and it will refresh and show the music on the card but usually it does the scroll screen again. I have reformatted it several times and it even does it when there is nothing on the card at all. Anyone have any ideas or know where I can go to find an answer to this issue?

MP66 can't read microSD kingston


The MP66 can read microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card and will not work with the MP66. You need to use SD and microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

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.

Sansa e200 wont recognize 8GB microSD


The Sansa e200 series machines work with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use microSD cards, which are 2GB and smaller.

Later model Sansa such as the Fuze will work with microSDHC cards, but not the e200. Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

Micro SD Capacity


The e260 will not recognize any microSDHC cards. It will only use microSD cards, which are limited to a maximum of 2GB in size.

My device does not recognize a 2gb micro sd I install. Is there a procedure for installing this?


Glad to have been of help.

Cards bigger than 2GB won't work. The Sansa works with microSD cards. Cards bigger than 2GB are actually microSDHC (the HC stands for High Capacity) and use a different protocol. Newer Sansas such as the Fuze will use them but the e-series won't.

Sansa 280 memory probleme.


Does the device your playing it in support MicroSDHC?

If it doesn't, it will not play it on that size of a memory card. The most you can get away with using on that player is 2gb.
