Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?

Whenever I turn on my Sansa, it shows a red box and says, "Not enough space for music DB Please free 6 MB. Data base had to be repaired. Connect to your PC to refresh database" After that it shows the regular screen but then I try to play music, there seems to be no songs in the list. However, my photos are still in there.

When I plug my Sansa to my PC, nothing happens and the Sansa doesn't seem to connect.

What's the problem with my Sansa? And how do I fix it?

You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

Remove the microSD card, then connect the player to your computer and delete stuff from its internal memory until you have 6MB free.

Not enough space for music db. Please free 6 MB.


If you have formatted there is no music on the player. You will have to re-sync any the music. Set the USB mode to MTP, then Use Windows Media Player 10 or higher to sync player.

E260 shows 0 MB memory and 0 MB free space after recovery


Look, I think the best thing to do is to return the product. Normally, they gave you a new one. My old one broke with a blank screen. So the bestbuy guy talked to his manager and gave me a new one.

No music


clear 6 mb, it needs at least 6 megabytes on the thing to create the list of playable music on it.

Music DB?


You have put too many songs on the device.

It needs some free space to create the Music Database or the Artist, Album, Song information.Generally between 6 - 10 MB for each GB of music on the device is sufficient.

If it shows up in My Computer, you can manually delete some files from the MUSIC folder.

If not, you can use the following software to erase everything and start over.





Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://rapidshare.com/files/67740173/e200fw01.00.12.exe____

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.



Best of Luck.

PLEASE HELP I CAN"T LIVE WITH OUT MY SANSA


"Please free 6MB for music DB" means that there is not enough MEMORY for the MUSIC DataBase. Therefore, you cannot see the music on your device.

To resolve this, you need to delete music until your device is less than 6MB of being full.

Generally 10 to 15 songs should do the trick.




Best of Luck,
