How to charge my mp3

I cant format my sansa c250 mpe
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.
Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the "MTP Device" by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

You may need to uninstall an old/ outdated driver first. Here are some of the steps Sandisk recommends and they are pretty common to solutions for other MP3 players.http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/42/~/sansa-player-not-recognized-by-the-computer
Sansa c250 will not show music on memory card
First, make sure it's a microSD card and not a microSDHC card. If your card is larger than 2GB then it won't work in the c250.Second, make sure all your music in a folder named "MUSIC" at the root of your card. You can have subfolders in that folder, but the top folder must have that name.
I was using my sansa c250 on a mac computer, and i
well you can try plugging it in to your computer and when it turns on wait and see what it does but i would just leave it on and see what it does... take out andything that is plugged into it first though
My sansa when its connected to my computer comes on works syncs and everything so as i disconnect it from my computer it' s dead and wont turn on
Three possibilities; 1) You have a dead battery because the battery is no good.2) You have a dead battery because your Sansa is no longer charging the battery.3) You have a dead battery because you didn't leave your Sansa tethered long enough to charge it up.When you have the Sansa c250 tethered to the computer, you should see a tiny yellow lightning bolt flashing, and a battery icon that shows the amount of charge on the battery. If you see the lightning bolt, but the battery does not charge after being tethered to a working computer or charger for 24 hours, you may need a new battery. You can get one on Amazon.com. Here's a link:http://www.amazon.com/HQRP-Replacement-Battery-Universal-Protector/dp/B001NZ981SIf you see the lightning bolt, and the battery charges after 24 hours, AND your player works when unplugged--Problem solved! You just need to let it charge for a longer time.If you do not see the lightning bolt when the player is tethered, and the battery indicator shows "empty," It's likely that the internal plug to your Sansa c250 has broken. Your Sansa is no longer able to charge the battery. If you happen to be an electrical engineer, or otherwise have a shop full of electronics equipment (including signal injector, volt-ohm meter, needle-tip soldering iron, and stereo magnifying goggles with work lamps) you may be able to fix it yourself. Otherwise, forget it-- your Sansa is dead.If it's still under warranty, try to get it replaced. Failing that, it's time to get a new MP3 player.Hope that helps! Please post a message to let others know what happened to your Sansa player.
