Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

Frozen on Refresh Database

My mp3 player was working just fine, and then I tried to upload a bunch of new songs onto the player and only a few of them actually went on. So I deleted everything from the player and re-uploaded all my music. When my mp3 player is attached to my computer, all the songs appear in the music folder of the player on my E: drive. However, when I disconnect my mp3 player, only half of them seem to actually be on the mp3 player. Then, the mp3 player froze up on a song. I was able to turn it off, reconnected it to my computer, disconnected it, and now it's frozen on the Refresh Database screen. This is getting very frustrating!

Take out the four screws on the back and pop out the battery then put it back on. Make sure you synced the songs properly. Add to the problem how you added your songs and I might be able to help.
Good Luck

We recently got this MP3 player and have been trying to upload songs from our libary. Most of the songs have went fine however we bought a song from I-Tunes that will not upload. we have followed the...


You'll need to use iTunes to convert the song to an MP3 file instead of its default AAC format file.

In iTunes, right-mouse click on the song that you purchased using iTunes and select "Create MP3 Version".

You can then place the MP3 version of the music file on your MP3 player.

My 4GB version is freezing my computer screen when hooked up


  • Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer’s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.
  • Try resetting the device it’s usually a small pinhole on the back or side of the device try holding that in for about 10 seconds.

Trying to upload music...Names of the songs do not come up.


You may not need to format your player. Depends on how your songs are named, are you working with mp3's or wma's? Some software to name or tag wma's do not transfer the names to other players if not sync'ed togrther. Same for some mp3 tags. If your computer is a Vista you may have to go into compatibility mode to install - also Xp has some same features of backwards compatibilty. Try to download new software from manufacture. Then try and find freeware mp3 / wma tagging software. re-tag a few songs and see if they come up on screen. Dont format untill there is no other opption.

INSIGNIA MP3 PLAYER


I had this problem also and I think I figured it out because now my music will play. I took the songs I had from limewire, highlighted them all and clicked "save as", opened it with windows media player and on wmp I took my playlist and named it on there....first I synched the songs under "sync" and they would upload on my player but they would NOT play. I got the same stupid error message. So after they were uploaded onto my mp3 player, i dragged all of the songs onto the right side to make a sync list AGAIN and clicked start sync, all of the files said "already on device" so I kind of got mad thinking it still didn't work...when I unplugged it and tried to play the song, they ACTUALLY PLAYED. I fought with this for so long and contemplated about throwing the stupid thing down the toilet but for whatever reason, synching it in two different ways in that order, it worked and it stopped saying "error:can't open this file"...hope this works for you and anyone else having this problem because I know how frustrating this got for me. hope this helps. Good luck!!!

How do i delete songs


My suggestion is switching the file transfer protocol from MTP to MSC by accessing it under the Menu. Once you do this, when the Lyra is plugged into the computer, it will appear as an external hard drive. Format the hard drive and then drag and drop your songs and/or directories of songs onto the Lyra. This is what I do, as I never use Rhapsody, URGE, or even Windows Media Player or MusicMatch to upload songs onto my RD2763. Hope this helps!

Samsung media studio gone crazy


I think you have a virus on your computer. If there is any hope for your songs, try to copy them to another computer. If they don't work there, they are probably infected. Sorry!
