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.

Memory card unlocker


Micro SD (secure data) cards store information such as Word, image and video files.
Kingston microSD cards are used in many settings, such as schools, businesses and government offices, to protect data.
Some Kingston microSD cards are locked for added protection.
In the locked position, you cannot add or delete data from a microSD card.
You will need to unlock your Kingston microSD card in order to save data on it or delete data from it.

Remove the Kingston microSD card from whatever device it is kept in, whether it's a storage case, a digital camera or a GPS.
Find the small plastic switch on your Kingston microSD card.
If you are looking at the microSD card with the arrow pointing away from you, the switch will be on the right side of the card.

Flip the switch on the card to the unlocked position.
This will enable you to store and remove files on your Kingston microSD card.

5310 failure when instert 2GB microSD


hi thanks for using fixya!!!

You know what, I experienced the same problem, What i did, I bought a new microSD card 2GB, and now it is working fine.

I suggest to you that, try to reformat your SD card, then insert it again, if still the same, buy a new one, it is very affordable I can say.

Good luck!!!

Don't forget to rate my solution!! thanks!

Micro SD 2 GB just stopped working


The PIC or EEPROM inside these cards may not be working. I guess you best bet is to buy a new one try Kingston brand or go with another Sandisk.
