Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)

Using a Micro SDHC card with Sandsa c250

Hey folks -

Well, I just got an 8GB Micro SDHC card to use with my 2GB Sansa c250 MP3 player and I'm getting some odd results. Mostly, it won't show up (though, oddly enough, it has showed up once or twice, though in a screwy way).

Nothing on the Sansa website said that the card was incompatible with the player - which I looked for before I purchased the card.

Did I miss something? Is the card actually incompatible with the player? Or is there something specific I should be doing to make it work?

    That's really odd, as the card fits into the MP3 player just fine and the Sansa site, at least as far as I can tell, lists the c200 series being compatible with these cards. Ugh. Thanks!

All you have to do is get Rockbox

then MICRO SD High capacity doesnt work with the c250.

It only works up to 2gb

but with the rockbox you can get up to 8gb.

V2 of the c250 series does infact support SDHC. I have 4gb one and it's been working forever. The problem is, that it doesn't support a card that has more than 4gb of space on it. It'll only recognize 4 out of the 6 or 8 for some reason. Sansa says it does indeed support 8gb, but has yet to supply a way to do this.

I don't think that these support SDHC. Basically if a product doesn't say anything about a feature, it doesn't have it.

    I'm pretty sure SDHC cards are physically the same shape and will fit into regular card slots, which can be confusing. I find that right now SDHC support is very limited in devices nowadays and I'm holding off buying them for at least a couple years.

    Glad to help, sorry about the card, please rate :)

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 added a 8GB micro SD card to my e200 MP3 player but the player won't recognize the card. What do I do?


You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While a microSDHC card will fit into the slot, they are incompatible with the Sansa e200 series.

I am considering purchasing a Sandisc Micro SDHC 8Gb card for my Sandisc E260 MP3 Player. Will this be OK?


Hello,

Highest capacity memory card for the e200 series depends on the firmware version.

Consulting the Sandisk page gives next information:
Sansa e200 - verify the version of the player. To check, go to Settings > Info.

For 01.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards
For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards
NOTE: Firmware is not interchangeable.

Sansa E250R doesn't recognize a 8GB card nor does my computer


Is you E280 V1 or V2? The V1 will only recognize up to 2GB. You can find this by going to settings, info. If the firmware number starts with 1 it's a V1. V2's start with 3.

If you have a V2 place the card in a card reader to format. Format card to FAT32. If not recognized by a card reader the card may be defective.

If the player is a V1 the micro SDHC can still be used by loading RockBox firmware. But note when running RockBox the sync port will be disabled. To use port the player can still be started in the Sansa firmware but a SDHC card will not be accessible.

Micro SD card not read


The Sansa c250 and lower cannot read SDHC cards. They must be regular SD cards for the c250 to "see" them. That is, they must be of 2GB capacity or lower. If the card is 4GB or higher, it is a SDHC card and will not work.

Can 8GB micro SD be use in SanDisk Fuze 4GB mp3 player?


In order to use an 8gb micro sd, the device has to be SDHC approved. If you don't see an SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) logo on the device or on the owners manual, It isn't compatible. It will read up to a 2 gb micro sd card.

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.

4 GB micro sd and the Sandisk Sansa e250R...


If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)
