Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player won't charge anymore

I had my e250 hooked up to a Itrip transmitter for my car. I couldn't get it to work and I was driving so I just switched over and listened to some CD's. I left it hooked up to the Itrip for probably 12 hours while driving and when I got to my house the battery was dead. So I let it charge for probably 10 hours at least. When I tryed to turn it on after letting it charge the battery would shut off. I've tried letting it charge for over 24 hours now and it will barely charge itself. After letting it charge for over 24 hours I had maybe 5 or 10 minutes of time before it died again. Is this battery shot or can I save it some how?

An itrip has different charging rates than an ipod, so you fried something inside of your sandisk.

    ipod and sankisk car transmitters are different...the plug may fit, but it still too powerful of a charge.

    You have possibly ruined your sandisk.

Sansa e250 mp3 player won't recogize micro card

Make sure the card is a microSD card, not a microSDHC card. The e250 only works with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Won't turn on

Please give some more details.
I suppose it's the problem that your Sansa e250 MP3 Player won't turn on.
You could turn to Sansa official support.

Sansa e250...computer will not detect

If you are using a USB connector [that connects extra ports to your computer] it sometimes doesnt work... so if possible hook the USB sansa cable to the main ports in the back of the server. It might also work to hook it in, and then go to 'My Computer' and see if it shows up there. Good Luck =]

Couldn´t connect SanDisk Sansa e250 to Computer

I don't know what to tell you, but since nobody else is helping. Make sure that you've got the mp3 player plugged into a usb port.

Oh, and hopefully you're running XP or Vista. Sandisk requires it.
