Can I buy additional memory? My SanDisk is full. Also, I have tried to download an album and can't because the device thinks it already has it, but I sure can't find it.

Yes, you can add more memory. The e250 has a slot for a microSD card, and those cards come in various sizes up to 2GB. You might see larger cards, but those are actually microSDHC cards and won't work in the e250.

You can load those cards up with music, as long as you put it into a folder named "MUSIC." Videos and photos must reside in the internal memory.

As to downloading an album, check the file names as well as the album and artist names embedded in the file. Since you didn't specify the computer and operating system, I can't tell you specific ways of doing that. On Windows, Media Player should show you that information, though.

I found a user manual for this player on the SanDisk forums. You can read the full manual here: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/836/kw/dap/r_id/101834
This player does not support playlists, so if you want to play the albums separately, you will have to organize them into folders. So, make one folder for each album and title them appropriately, then move the folders over to the device, and each album will be in its own folder under ROOT.

How to reset mp3 player

SanDisk Sansa MP3 Players are portable devices that play music, video and share pictures. These particular MP3 players are popular options due to their use of MicroSD cards, which offer constant memory expansion by simply rotating the use of various SanDisk memory cards. As with many portable music devices, however, these players occasionally "freezes up" and needs to be reset to resume normal operation. This is a simple process that can be completed with minimal effort.


Slide the power button on your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player up.

Hold the power button on your Sansa in the up position for about 15 seconds. This action serves as a powering down of the Sansa device.

Wait for your Sansa MP3 player to restart and let go of the power button. Actions taken during your last operation since powering down normally have been deleted and your player is now reset.

Can i download maps of germany,switzerland and france onto my Garmin Nuvi 255 now that it already has australia and nz on it


You can, but...

You'll need to load the mapping onto a removable memory card, as your device's memory isn't large enough. Adding a memory card with additional maps really slows the machine down, painfully so. Buying the European mapping pack isn't cheap: you can buy a brand new satnav with full European (including UK and Eire) mapping preinstalled for about the same price. Click here for a current example, but there are cheaper ones if you abandon Garmin in favour of Medion or other brands.

It works out even cheaper if you sell the old satnav to fund the purchase of the new one. When you need the Oz/NZ mapping again you can do the same thing again as by then your original unit will probably have out of date maps anyway.

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

You need to format the SD memory card using the camera format function. The manual should tell you how to do this. If you don't have the manual, you can download it from the samsung website.
