Windows Recovery Mode:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

The Sansa only plays videos from its internal memory. You can put music on a microSD card, but not photos nor videos.

I bought a 4GB PNY Micro SD HC card for my e250, which will not show up on my computer. Is this the right card for the e250?


Sandisk Sansa e200 models will NOT detect cards over 2GB capacity. There is a firmware known as rockbox that will allow up to 32GB of space but its only recomended if you are familiar with transfering and installing files to your player. Rockbox firmware can be found at http://www.rockbox.org/ by just selecting your model.

Rockbox


1 - since you really did nt delete all of rockbox (you shoud reinstall the whole thing) this will take of the system looking for it.
2 - you will have a dual boot up and a choice of which one u wish
Key Action

Power Start Rockbox
Long Power Shutdown Rockbox
On shutdown, Rockbox automatically saves its settings.

Rockbox has a dual-boot feature. To boot into the original firmware, press and hold the Left button while turning on the player.
