SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

The sansa player started showing message "refresh database fail" and all data including songs and voice recording has gone. Although the the memory shows 1893 mb still in use. Also on connecting to computer the sansa is not detected. I am unable to load any songs and also unable to refresh the database. The 'reset all' also has not resolved the problem . What should I do ? Regards Ashu

Ok, mine had the same problem, first go to settings, then USB mode and switch it to MSC, plug it into your computer and it should show up, then format it, this will erase everything but then u can put it back on, after you format it you can switch it back to MTP mode, its alot better, hope i helped

First switch your USB control to MSC. Then turn off your mp3 player and activate the hold icon. Then turn it on while holding the record button with hold icon still being activated. then it will go to recovery mode. Now plug your sandisk into the computer and wait until it says RECOVERY COMPLETE...PLEASE DISCONNECT or when it just says for you to disconnect. This worked on my sandisk, and it hopefully work for you.

"Refresh Database" never ends!

If you try to load too many songs onto the player initially, it may take up to an hour to get past Refresh database. Unfortunately, if you shut the player off while it is refreshing, it will more than likely ruin your player. Run the Sansa Recovery Tool or Update the Firmware on your Player as a workaround. Make sure the hold/lock switch isn't activated, just as a safeguard.

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?

You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

Sansa e250 screen is stuck on refresh database

Press the "lock" button to where the Orange is showing. Then press the record button on the left side of the MP3 for a bit. Try this several times. I did it twice and it worked! M.P.

How do you refresh database?

This just means that the player is refreshing the songs on the list, it does not mean that you have to do anything.

Sansa e200 shows refresh database fail

Try emailing SanDisk technical support team at: [email protected] And ask them for the Recovery Mode firmware upgrade (Also send them the problem the way you posted it here). They should send you a link to some firmware upgrade file. You could also try calling them at: 1-866-726-3475 but an email should be sufficient because, from what I remember, it is just a link to file that you need to download. I hope that helps...
