Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

2 Answers

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

I added an SD memory card and the device doesn't see it. Does anyone know what to do? I've reset it to factory defaults. I've had this a long time and it's a great little MP3 player, but it needs memory. I've got a 4GB SD card (sandisk) but the player doesn't recognize that anything is there. Any suggestions?

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

SOURCE: 4GB micro sd card.

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.

SOURCE: Micro sd 4gb card problems.

Check the Sansa tutorials at http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1468
to make sure you have followed all the steps first.

In my experience, every mp3 player/photo frame/etc with a card reader has a MAXIMUM memory limit for the type of card that it can read. It is possible that the Sansa player can only read 2GB Micro SD cards or smaller - and thisi nformation may not have been available when they printed the manual. If you have followed all instructions, and it still will not read the card, try switching to a 2GB Micro SD card.

SOURCE: sansa mp3 player could not detect micro sd add on card

I believe you can fix it by going on the player, then to settings, then to USB mode, and switching it from MTP to MSC. If you're in MSC already and it fails to recognize, then I don't know. :(

Anything over 4GB is a Micro SDHC card, not a Micro SD card. It is a completely different type of card format on the inside, and despite the compatible size and shape, it will not work on devices labeled only as Micro SD card compatible. The Sansa e200 and up (e250, e260, ect.) are NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MICRO SDHC CARDS (Micro SD cards that exceed 2GB in capacity).

What's your problem?lg900g won't recognize micro sd


The LG900g works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While microSDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically compatble and will not work in devices not specifically designed to work with the higher-capacity cards. You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a samsung diva mobile, for some reason it won't let me format my sd card via my mobile and the phone doesn't seem too recognise the sd card


Welcome to Fixya

Try to insert the card first to your computer that has a memory card slot reader. If the computer did not recognize the card then the problem is the card already.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I can not get our memory card to format. it says card error. we are using a microSDHC Ccard with adapter 4gb


Is the camera compatible with SDHC? If it can only handle SD memory cards this card is not readable in the device. It will show on the camera whether it is compatible with SDHC. If it doesn't have the logo, take it as the card won't work and you'll need to get a normal SD card.

There is a theoretical maximum of 2GB for SD memory cards, SDHC start at 4GB and go up to 32GB.

Simply put, if your camera is quite old, it won't support SDHC and therefore is limited to a maximum of 2GB memory card.

Use a card reader. Since your computer has a USB port, you can get a card reader that reads SDHC cards. This is exactly how I do it on my computer.

I added a 2gb mirco SD card to my Sansa e270 6.0gb player, but the memory is still only showing 10mb of the original 6.0 gb available for use. How do I get the Sansa to recognize and use the 2 gb mirco SD...


Hi,when you purchase a new micro SD card before use, youwill need to format the memory card so that you will be able to know the actual size of the Micro SD card by checking the details after formatting it.

After formatting the micro SD card and checking the details, if you still do not see the accurate size which is about 1.88mb or the about, that means the micro SD card you bought needs to be replaced. Not a good one.

Have a nice day.

My sansa player does not recognize a micro sd when its inserted


Sorry, it doesn't work that way. You can use a separate card reader to put files onto the microSD card. When the card is installed into the Sansa, the Sansa will see the additional music.
