Sansa e250 not playing/recognizing songs stored on internal memory, only on card

My sansa only plays and recognizes songs off of my memory card, it doesn't even show any songs at all if they are stored on internal memory. It never has, and i've just dealt with it, but now i want to fix it. I can see the songs from my computer, but the mp3 player doesn't even show them. I also have a problem with the "refreshing database" taking 5 minutes, but i'm just assuming that is supposed to do that because maybe it can't remember the songs stored on the card and has to "refresh the database" every time it's turned on? hopefully...i hope it's not a problem with the thing. This is getting irritating, and i have stopped using it because i don't want to wait on the database..maybe i won't have this problem when it can read the songs off of the player. I just followed your instructions to fix the "refreshing database" problem, i hope it fixes it, it's been saying "writing" for the last 10 minutes since i finished formatting it the way you said. I hope you can help! Thank you!

I purchase more memory for my sansa e250 player and when i go to download music from my mediaplayer it doesnt recognize that i added more memory


the extra memory is considered a seperate drive and is recognized by your computer. Try moving the files you have from the normal internal memory to your backup drive so that you can download to internal again. (Via your computer and dragging and dropping)

Problem getting video to expandable memory/sansa e250 to be recog


The Sansa will not play videos off the microSD card. It will play music, but not show videos or photos.

To get the videos onto the Sansa, use the Sansa Media Converter. If you don't have the SMC, you can download the Windows version from http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3IPZO6Q0

Sansa e250 computer problems


Try using Windows Media Player instead, and see if you get the same result. If it loads in Windows Media Player, then the problem is with WinAmp and not your Mp3 player. When you say it loads half-way, do you mean it loads half the songs and then shuts off? Is the Sansa running on low battery? WinAmp has some kind of update released in the past week - did you download the update, and then experience the problem? It's probably not this, because other users have had the same problem that you are reporting since at least Christmas 2007.

The following is an advice from another Sansa user, so I haven't been able to verify it myself:
"I have to have WinAmp open and a song playing then connect my player and then it will work fine. If I just connect my player then start WinAmp it crashes"

If all of the above fails, reformat your player and start over from scratch. Let me know how everything works out - this is an issue that not even the Sansa website seems to have an answer for.

My Sansa skips the songs I put on it, what can should I do


I restored settings to default factory settings and has been working and not skipping the songs. Restoring to factory settings does not delete any of your data/songs
