First, make sure it's a microSD card and not a microSDHC card. If your card is larger than 2GB then it won't work in the c250. Second, make sure all your music in a folder named "MUSIC" at the root of your card. You can have subfolders in that folder, but the top folder must have that name.
Loading Music You can transfer music from your computer to the Sansa® MP3 player using the drag-and-drop method or using music management software like Windows Media Player. Drag and Drop (Windows) Follow these steps to drag-and-drop music to your Sansa® Clip+ MP3 player: 1. Connect your Sansa® Clip+ player to your PC. 2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial connection or by going to My Computer. 3. Double-click on the Sansa Clip+ MP3 player. 4. Double-click on Internal Memory. 5. Double-click on the Music folder. 6. Drag and drop music files from your computer to the Sansa® MP3 player’s Music folder. You can also drag and drop files to a microSD™ card inside your player by going to My Computer > Sansa Clip+ > External uSD Card.
Your problem is probably a matter of the different storage methods the player uses. Songs transferred via MTP (google it if it doesnt make sense) usually dont show up in the music folder, and the same goes the other way around for songs transferred to the player as a regular usb storage device.
Actually after some searching it is VERY easy to manage the c250, you
just have to know how to connect it. You must connect it to read as MSC format. To do this, put on the hold feature and press and hold the rewind/previous track button as you connect it. This will open it up as a removable disc. So just drag and drop whichever songs you want from the MUSIC folder. You may also delete individual songs that are already on there. Hope this helps, works for me. Fox

CONNECTING AND TRANSFERRING
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
SANSA MEDIA CONVERTER
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.
To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.
I used ID3-TagIT to change the album name of my songs to the name of the folder on my Sansa c250 that I want to put the songs in. Open your Sansa in My Computer, double click on Internal Memory and open the music folder. Add a new folder and name it whatever you put in for the album name of your songs. Highlight all your songs and drag and drop them into your folder. Don't use media player to sync or they end up all mixed up in different folders.
You dragged & dropped files in recovery mode?
Recovery mode is only for re-installing the firmware or formatting the device if it is unresponsive.
If you are wanting to drag and drop files onto the device, the music needs to be put into the Music folder on the device.
If you do not see the Music folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your PC.
Best of Luck.
p.s. - you can add to this question this doesnt work.
