    Can someone please tell me the right web link to download the firmware updater for the Sansa e260? I was told, this is what I need to do in order to get the player to accept a 4 or 8gb sd card.
    Thanks.

The name of the project is actually Rockbox.

An interesting thing to note... The Sansa e200 series user manual says that they do support SDHC cards. I can say, sadly, that they actually don't with the default firmware.

Have you found one bigger than 4GB?  (SDHC MicroSD, that is?) 2GB works, and if they update the firmware again it will work with 4GB...

You should check out the free software project 'jukebox' which lets you do all kinds of thing (really, anything at all) with Sansa.  The forum there can answer whether 4GB cards have been made to work with that....

When I try to play a track I get a message "No files"


Try formatting the sd card to fat 32 before saving the mp3 files to it. Also try using a high quality low capacity sd card. Scandisk 8gb for example.

I have a Sansa e250 and I just bought a 8GB microSD card. Ideally, I would be able to add 10GB worth of music and playlists, however I can't get the Sansa player to read the music from the microSD...


The Sansa e250 works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While microSDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the e250.

microSD cards max out at 2GB in size, but you can put your music on several of them and swap them in and out. It's not as convenient as having them all on one card, but that's the best you can do with the e250.

Some later models such as the Fuze will accept microSDHC cards.

Why my sansa e 250 dont read the micro sd? the micro sd is sandisk 8 gb.


The e250 works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While physically identical, microSDHC cards are electronically incompatible. You need to use microSD cards 2GB and smaller.

I have sansa e200 4gb and not read my micro SD 4GB in the player and not through usb on my computer.Help me please


The Sansa e200-series uses microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to go with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My sansa e260 does not recongnize my 4 gig sdhc micro card...why is this?


It's because the e260 is designed to work with microSD cards, not with microSDHC cards. You need to go with microsD cards 2GB and smaller.

Micro SD Capacity


The e260 will not recognize any microSDHC cards. It will only use microSD cards, which are limited to a maximum of 2GB in size.

Can memory be added to sansa m250? if so, how is it done?


No, the Sansa m250 is one of the few Sansa lines that does NOT have a microSD card slot. If it did, you would have been able to use a microSD card to expand the memory by an additional 2GB. (The later Sansa models can support microSDHC, or "high capacity" cards up to 16GB or 32GB.)

RCA pearl 4GB expandable memory?


The card you are trying to use is likely a high capacity sd card (SDHC). This player does not support high capacity cards, it only supports microSD cards that are non-high capacity (I think most of them are usually 2GB or less, but you can find them up to 4GB).

Micro SDHC use


Yes you can use them. Version 2 players support all size SDHC cards. However version 1 players can only accept 2 gig regular micro SD cards, which can also be used in version 2 players.
HC means High Capacity.
