My sansa e250 is insane!!!

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.

WHENEVER I TURN ON THIS SANSA MP3 PLAYER ALL SEE IS A READING THAT SAYS "DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGHT SPACE FOR MUSIC DB. PLEASEFREE 90MB" WHAT DOES THIS MEAN.


It thinks you have tried to put a files on the MP3, called,  Music DB, and wants you to "Free Up" ie: delete unwanted files up to 90MB, old songs movies etc so it can complete it's job. However it may just be a fault?

Not enough space?


Format the player from the Sansa itself - directions are in the manual - and reload songs onto the player.

No Song ..? O.o


Sounds like something nasty got on there. Try setting USB Mode to MSC (mass storage class) and running virus and spyware scans on the device as a disk drive.

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?


You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

No music


clear 6 mb, it needs at least 6 megabytes on the thing to create the list of playable music on it.

My sansa is messed up


It is referring to the "database", or the menus on the device. (i.e. - songs titles, music, artists) It needs at least 6MB of free space on the device to create this. If you freed up what you think is 6MB, it may not be enough. Even though you have a 2GB player, there is only 1.85 of usable space on it. So try deleting some more tracks. If not, format the device and start over. Right click on the device in My Computer and select format. Best of Luck.
