My sansa e250 mp4 player was working fine, i recently bought a memory card but up until now i cant put anymore music on the actual player itself, any music i put on the memory card works. It is defiantly not full and when i put it on on the computer it shows its there but nothing come up on the player
- As with nearly ALL sansa e250 problems, formating it will bring it back to normal.
1. Connect it to your computer.
2. Open 'My Computer' and right-click the device.
3. choose 'format...' and then 'quick format'.
4. If you haven't done so, upgrade the firmware:
-Find the firmware on the Sandisk home page. Don't use the wrong one, though. If you have a Rhapsody version, choose the e200r player. Download the .zip file and extract its contents (right-click, 'extract all'). Then connect your player to your computer and drag the extracted file to your player's drive. Now when you turn your player on, it'll undergo the firmware update.
You can also update your firmware by connecting to Rhapsody with your player hooked up and following the firmware update instructions when the window comes up. If the firmware update window doesn't appear, then you have the latest firmware to date.
5. Test out the player and see if this method worked. If not, you may want to send it back sandisk or return to the retailer you bought it from.

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.
The e-series uses microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot it is not electronically compatible and will not work in the e250. You need to stay with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.
The newer Fuze series will accept microSDHC cards.
It's pretty simple really. To actually get music on your micro sd card you have to put it into an adapter and connect it to your computer. Then you have to put the music on the card seperately. Then plug it into your sansa and it will recongnize the songs and play them like normal
I haven't tried this, but I see no reason it why it shouldn't work. I have used an 2gb expansion card in my Sansa and it works just fine. The only problem is it will only play music off of an SD card, no video. I guess this is only to much memory if you don't need it. Rough guess is that a 4gb will hold roughly 1000 songs. I would only go for the smaller sd card if there was a substantial price difference and you won't be needing the extra space.
The e260 works with microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card and won't work in the Sansa. With a microSD card, simply put music tracks into a folder called "MUSIC". When the card is installed, the Sansa will see the additional tracks.
According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.
