Hello,

First, I would suggest you reset your SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player and if that doesn't solve the problem, the you can format the player.

To reset:

  • Connect the player to a computer or power outlet for 10 to 30 minutes to ensure the battery has enough charge to complete the reset operation. Resetting when the player is on low power could permanently damage the player's internal software or hardware.
  • Disconnect from the power source and press the "Power" and "Menu" buttons on the side and front of the player.
  • Hold the buttons down for 15 seconds, then release them when the display goes blank. Rebooting is complete when the menu screen is displayed.
To format:
  • Connect the player to a computer, go to "My computer" and you should find a drive (Drive E:. F: or G:)representing your player
  • Right click on the drive and scroll to "Format"
  • Allow the driver format completely
  • Put/load songs on the player and try again.
One of the above should help solve this problem.

Good luck.

    Hello again,

    In addition to my first solution, the reset method I sent earlier was a soft reset.

    To hard reset:






    1. Open the battery compartment and remove the battery from the player.



    2. Hold down the "Power" button for 40 seconds.



    3. Wait
      five minutes for the device's memory to completely clear, then reinsert
      the battery. Press "Power" to boot up the device with completely
      cleared settings and memory.
    I hope this helps.

    Good luck.

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

Music DB??? clear 6 MB???


Have you tried re-formatting the device?  This will "wipe" memory, getting rid of corrupted files, etc. and should restore use.
