The Sansa e200-series uses microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to go with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.
Sandisk Sansa e200 models will NOT detect cards over 2GB capacity. There is a firmware known as rockbox that will allow up to 32GB of space but its only recomended if you are familiar with transfering and installing files to your player. Rockbox firmware can be found at http://www.rockbox.org/ by just selecting your model.
Actually, it sounds as if the card is working. The more you have on the card, the more free internal memory you'll need so it can build its media database. Remove the card, then delete some files from the internal memory to free up space. Then reinsert the card.
The e260 works with microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card and won't work in the Sansa. With a microSD card, simply put music tracks into a folder called "MUSIC". When the card is installed, the Sansa will see the additional tracks.
In my experience, every mp3 player/photo frame/etc with a card reader has a MAXIMUM memory limit for the type of card that it can read. It is possible that the Sansa player can only read 2GB Micro SD cards or smaller - and thisi nformation may not have been available when they printed the manual. If you have followed all instructions, and it still will not read the card, try switching to a 2GB Micro SD card.
If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)
