Hold down the power button for fifteen seconds. Sometimes all the unit needs is a good soft reset.

If, for whatever reason, the unit is still unresponsive, you will need to force-format and downgrade the player. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

My Sansa Clip died after installing Rockbox!


Maybe installing Rockbox makes your device corruption. If plug the device to pc, the pc still recognize it, update new firmware from sandisk official site, http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/

I put videos on it but i cant watch them on my sansa e250 when i plug the micro into it


The Sansa only plays videos from its internal memory. You can put music on a microSD card, but not photos nor videos.

I bought a 4GB PNY Micro SD HC card for my e250, which will not show up on my computer. Is this the right card for the e250?


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.

Sandisk Sansa C250 won't recognize 8Gig micro chip


Your model doesn't natively support SD cards over 4GB, however I hear you can install something called "Rockbox," it's a free third party firmware that allows you to dual boot between "Rockbox" and the Sansa firmware. "Rockbox" adds the support you need for SD cards with a capacity of 4GB or more. I've never used this firmware, but it does sound promising.
Download it here
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Rockbox


1 - since you really did nt delete all of rockbox (you shoud reinstall the whole thing) this will take of the system looking for it.
2 - you will have a dual boot up and a choice of which one u wish
Key Action

Power Start Rockbox
Long Power Shutdown Rockbox
On shutdown, Rockbox automatically saves its settings.

Rockbox has a dual-boot feature. To boot into the original firmware, press and hold the Left button while turning on the player.
