I hope this may help you, as it did for me. You can usually use Google to find older versions of the firmware (this is the stuff that makes the player function correctly when you power it on) at least that is the best definition I can give you! You can save the firmware to your PC, then connect the player to begin reloading the firmware that way, I would suggest going to SanDisk's website (sandisk.com) but for older units, they may not have the firmware available for that model anymore. Anyway, no you do not have to have the unit hooked up (unless you want to) and having the SD card in the player will not effect nor mess up so long as you make sure that you download the firmware to the Sansa, and not onto the removable disc. Good Luck, and I hope it works for you!

How to update


Before updating the firmware, be sure to verify and complete the following procedures:

Back up all audio, video, image or data files stored in the player to a secure location before changing the firmware.


All contents in the player will be lost when you install a new firmware.

Close all active applications as well as all background applications, including all media players and anti-virus programs such Norton Anti-virus.


Disable the Detector application in Creative MediaSource.

To do so, start Creative MediaSource, click on Tools, Settings, and then Detector. Uncheck the box next to Enable Detector.


Close down MediaSource.

Ensure that the firmware download was saved into the hard drive of your PC, not the player itself. Otherwise, it will report an error message Unable to lock the drive.


To check for firmware version before the firmware download, please refer to the section How Do I Find the Firmware Version on a Creative MP3 Player


To update the firmware of a Creative MP3 player, follow the procedures below.

Sansa e250R firmware


hey yeah i had the same problem with my sansa e250r. when mine does that i
1. turn it off
2. put the hold button on
3. hold down the rec. button
4. turn it back on
that will get you into recovery mode connect your data cable once you have hooked it up to your computer open my computer and you should see a 16mb drive there instead of your normal mp3.
once you see that open it up.
now go to http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1449 scroll down and click on download firmware link
once you have downloaded that file unzip it and copy the file that is inside to the 16mb drive that you opened up in my computer.

once you have done all the above,,
1. take the hold button off
2. disconnect the data cable
3. wait for it to reboot.
if the above dosent work you might wanna take it to the dealer.
hopefully this works for you as well as it did me. good luck
