Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
Today i added more songs and when i wanted to use it it said in a red square that there isnt more space for music DB that i had to free some space, ok, but when i plug the damn thing to the pc and click on the folders to delete them, it disconnects itself as if i unplugged it and obviously i cant delete any songs..but not only that, when i go to the music and select the artist section, it would just freeze, like the screen gets blue or white!!! when that happens i press the on button until it turns off, but it keeps happening, i cant delete any songs and i cant listen neither!!! HELP!!!!
You must re-format the player and re-add the songs - the DB has become corrupted.
There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.
WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
