The Sansa sometimes corrupts files. It seems to be a persistent firmware bug.Put the Sansa in MSC mode.

Connect it to your computer then follow this:

In My Computer, see what the driveletter is E:Sansa 250.
Start/Run and type in chkdsk E:/f (or whatever the driveletter is). Windows will check the disk, fix bad files by deleting them and ask if you want to keep copies of the bad files. You don't need to and this may help on your problem but if still the same try to update the firmware of this player.

Hope that helps........

Hi,

Initially, it would seem that your Sansa e250 has somehow messed its firmware hence, the menu will not come on when powered up. The hardware part of the unit is still basically sound as evidenced by the computer being able to read it as a removable disk.

The Sandisk site offers downloadable utilities to restore the firmware, repair and for most other maintenance purposes.

For failing to load the menu or freezing on the Welcome screen, pls click here;

For a Sansa Firmware Updater, pls click here;

For all other, pls try here or here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm not familiar w/ the Sansa but I'll give it a try.
The SanDisk Sansa e200 is an MTP device but can be switched into UMS mode, meaning it can be used as a hard drive, which is a good thing for Mac users and those who prefer to drag and drop tracks. The only caveat here is that the expansion slot will not work when the unit is in MTP mode.

Hope this was of help.

Yes the computer will see it as a removable disk due to the way it is formated that is normal......all you need to do is plug it in to your computer. click on the start menu,click on my computer,click on your device(removable disk) once you do that it will show you what is on your mp3 player you can move and delete files this way..... to add music all you need to do is right click on the file and go to (SEND TO) send the file to the romovable disk and it will put the file on your mp3 player.....

Remove close caption


The CC (closed caption) option is usually set (on or off) from your TV's menu screen. From your remote (or TV), select the Menu, then look for Settings, and when you see CC .... you can turn it off. If you provide the TV model, more specific instructions can be provided.

Mp4 player not working


Check your MP4 player's system requirements.
Some MP4 players are only capable of working with certain operating systems and hardware, so refer to your player's documentation to ensure it is capable of functioning with your PC.
Change the USB port your MP4 player is connected to if you have confirmed your PC can function with your MP4 player.
Disconnect other USB devices, and try connecting your player to another USB port if you are still having problems.


Try restarting your PC if it is capable of working with your MP4 player.
Restarting your PC resets non-functioning USB ports, which may be your problem.

Make sure your USB cable is connected properly.
If your player requires you to install drivers, make sure you install them.

Try connecting your player to another PC to see if the new PC recognizes it.
If it does, chances are your computer does not support the hardware necessary to run your player.

Reset your MP4 player if your PC is still unable to recognize it.
Resetting your player varies depending on the manufacturer and model, so refer to your player's documentation.

Contact your player's manufacturer if you are still unable to get it to work with your PC.
