I was having a problem with the sound cutting out during the playing of songs. First one side then the other, The sound would come back if I switched to the next song but would cut out again. I thought formatting might help. I screwed up and formated in ntfs and now windows won't recognize the drive in the sansa. If I put in a microsd card it will recognize that drive. How do I format fat32,

Re: formatedmy sansa e250 ntfs
To format it..on your device..go under..menu, setting and there should be a format option option there.. or you can change the device mode to MSC instead of MTP and right click on the drive which is listed under my computer and click on format..
let me know if that doenst work for you... Hope this helps

Hook it up to your pc again via the usb cable and format it again, choosing NTFS file system. If you are running Windows XP you might only have option for FAT32. If you do reformat in FAT32 and it still doesn't work, you may need to download a drive management utility that can format a removalable drive in either NTFS or FAT32. If all else fails, you may need to download and install a flashing utility from the manufacturers website to revert the player back to factory condition.
The songs that you got are probably from the Rhapsody trial. Once the subscriptino expires, you will on longer be able to play those songs on your mp3 player.
To avoid this problem, only purchase songs that are in mp3 format from Rhapsody's Mp3 Store. You will find that mp3 players are expensive propositions in 2009 - it used to be much easier/cheaper.
If you want to go with illegal but free (I do not reccomend it), you can get songs from Limewire, Frostiwre, or Morpheus. Three warnings I must issue:
1) Only download songs that say "Mp3" under file format.
2) Some ISP's will cut off your internet service if you use limewire
3) Make sure you have strong Anti-Virus software on your computer, b/c the free svcs are littered with viruses/adware/etc.
read your manual (the whole thing if you have to then maybe you'll get a better understanding on how to function the MP3 player) if you dont get it then repost your message again saying you read the manual then help with what ever you need and give even more detail on how the mp3 player funtions on the outside
