My computer will read my e250 but not my microsd card

I'm trying to figure out why my computer won't read my sdcard in my sansa e250. I switched to a different computer, and now it won't even read my e250, please help me.

    Tried that already, didn't work, guess I should've mentioned that first. Sorry.

    1 computer wouldn't detect my Sansa at all, I even went to the SD website and downloaded the drivers and it still wouldn't detect it. The second computer could detect my Sansa, but wouldn't detect the music on it or my MicroSD card.

Just to be clear, are you saying that one computer couldn't detect your sansa or both?

    How about trying to format the sansa on the machine that detects it. Maybe there's a corrupted file there that make the PC go berserk.

    Let me know.

Switch your player into MSC mode via Main Menu > Settings > USB mode. When the player is connected it will show as two drives, the player, and the microSD card just like a card reader. You can transfer files directly to the expansion card.

Why won't my Sansa 250R won't recognize an sd card?

Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card. The e250 works with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a Sansa e250 and I just bought a 8GB microSD card. Ideally, I would be able to add 10GB worth of music and playlists, however I can't get the Sansa player to read the music from the microSD...

The Sansa e250 works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While microSDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the e250.

microSD cards max out at 2GB in size, but you can put your music on several of them and swap them in and out. It's not as convenient as having them all on one card, but that's the best you can do with the e250.

Some later models such as the Fuze will accept microSDHC cards.

Can I attach an 8 GB Micro SD Card in the expansion slot of my Sansa e250? If not, what is the maximum storage size it supports?

The e250 uses microSD cards, not microSDHC cards. The maximum size of microSD cards is 2GB. Anything larger are microSDHC cards.

My mp3 player won't recognize the memory card.

First, make sure it's a microSD card; the e260 won't work with microSDHC cards.
Then use a card reader to copy music tracks to a "MUSIC" folder on the card. Install the card into the e260 and you will see the additional music.

Try to reformat the card. Go to My Computer then right click the drive corresponding to your sd card and select format. Put some music back on, and try again. When your Sansa boots you should get a message stating it's refreshing the database. Good luck.
