Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

Sanse e200 freezing up for no reason!!!

My Sansa e200 has all of a sudden started to freeze up and now it is so bad that it will not turn on correctly or turn off correctly. When I turn it on, I can scoll around the basic menu sections, but when I try to do something by pressing the central key, it freezes and I have to hold down the power button for about 7 seconds until it just dies. It had been freezing just so I had to restart it about once every 2 weeks prior, but nothing serious. All of a sudden it is seemingly unfixable, and my computer will no longer even register that it's there when I plug it in. I have not dropped it or done anything physically to it; it is an enigma to me. Any suggestions as to why it's doing this and what I can do to make it come out of its coma?

Hi. It seems like your player decided to throw a hissy fit by deciding to experience internal system errors. Best that you reset the firmware. Here's how: Switch your Sansa E250 to its Recovery Mode: 1. Make sure the player is powered off 2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface 3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button. 4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E250 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode" 5. Connect your E250 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above) 6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E250 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6. Next, Apply the firmware for the E250 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time): Step 1: Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E250 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop": http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe Step 2: Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred. Step 3: When the process is complete, unplug your E250 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch Step 4: Power up your E250 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. Step 5: Enjoy using your Sansa E250, just like I do. (I love this player)

My mp3 freezes up after playing awhile

Usually freezing is resolved via a firmware upgrade - check the manufacturer's website. Sansa players are manufactured by Sandisk.

E200 problem

Where is the music coming from? If you have lots of Bad Tracks errors, the music is usually encoded incorrectly and the device does not know how to decipher it. If the device still connects to the Computer, try to format it. My Computer, Right click on Device name (e200) and select format. I would also update the firmware. It is available from the SanDisk website. http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 Best of Luck.
