Question about e270 MP3 Player (not e250):

How do I determine which version of e270 MP3 Player I have? I don't know if it's v1 or v2. I wish to format the player, but first I need to know which version it is, according to the instructions I received for formatting it.

Will not accept a new sd micro card


Hi!
Is the new card a normal micro-SD card - or is it a SDHC card??
Pay attention to your player version, as only v2 (e250 v2) supports SDHC cards. For v1 you'll have to use a standard micro-SD card.
If it DOES support SDHC cards, or it's not a SDHC card, then:
  • Have tried using another card to see it the device is not damaged and that it still have the ability to read micro-SD cards?
  • Have you try using your own card on another device (PC, cell-phone, other player, etc.)? Did it work (Check for SDHC compatibility in this case as well...)??
FYI, SDHC stands for Secure Digital - High Capacity.

Hope I helped,
Pelu.

Just recevied SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player. I thought I could download a pdf file of the user guide. I seems this is not possible. Where can I find a PDF version of the user guide? Mario


You can find the e200 manuals here:

http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4487#e200

Note that there are two different manuals; one for the v1 model, and another for the v2 model. You can determine which version you have by going to the Settings menu on your Sansa, then "Info". If the number of the firmware version in the top line starts with an "01", it's a v1 model. If it starrts with an "03", it's a v2 model.

Deleted songs from sansa e260 still show up on the menu


Turn the player off.

Push the HOLD button to the locked position.

Press and hold the RECORD button while connecting to PC.

Let go of RECORD button when you see Welcome to Recovery Mode on the player's LCD.



You are now connected in, you guessed it, Recovery Mode. Open My Computer and you will find a new removable flash drive labeled, 16MB-FORMAT.



DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FORMAT THE 16MB-FORMAT VOLUME!!!



Open the 16MB-FORMAT volume in My Computer and create a new folder on the drive in its root directory. Name the folder sansa.fmt, use the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the system tray, and disconnect the player from the PC. The player should now format itself. If all goes well the format will be successful. If not, I suspect you might have a defective internal memory module. If it is defective, you can replace it with one from another v1 or Rhapsody model unit. You can often find defective players on eBay for parts. The memory module from the e250, e260, e270, or e280 will work just so long as its from a v1 or R model.

I cannot play songs form my 4GB SD card


If it is v2 then it should not be a problem but v1 models can only support 2gb UNLESS you install rockbox firmware which can be found at http://www.rockbox.org/ and this will allow v1 models to play more than 2gb cards but this only works on v1 models so if you have v2 then this want help. But this sounds like you have a v1 model since its not playing.

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.

Max. micro sd card size compatible for Sansa C240


It depends on the version. v1 players can support up to 2GB. v2 players can support up to 8GB.

You can find out what version you have by going into Settings -> System and look at the version. If it starts with a 01 then it's a v1, if it starts with an 03 then it's a v2.

------------------

You can use a card up to 8GB if it's a v1 player by installing Rockbox on it. It's a 3rd party firmware for some mp3 players - although you should make sure to read any instructions for installing it, as well as read the manual.

-> Rockbox.org

I will stress this again: make sure you know what you are doing by reading installation instructions and the manual.

In order to install Rockbox on your player it needs to be in MSC mode (Settings -> USB -> MSC). If your player doesn't have the USB option in the Settings menu then you will need to downgrade your firmware. There's info on this in the Sandisk forums about how to do this.

Why my sansa c250 does not record the voice in mp3, only in wma?


Unfortunately, Sandisk didn't include any options in their firmware to record in any other format.

If you happen to have a version 1 c250 then you can install Rockbox on it and have 4 recording format options, as well as being able to choose what bitrate to record in for the mp3 format.

To find out if your player is a v1 go to Settings -> System Info
If the version starts with 01 then it's a v1 player and you can install Rockbox on it. If it starts with 03 then it's a v2 player and you're stuck with the wav format, as Rockbox is not yet available for v2 c250 players.

Can't find serial number


The serial number is behind the battery. You will have to unscrew the back cover to remove the battery. I wish there was another way.
