This is what i did when i was having the same issuse with my 1GB memory stick too, that i was trying to get assess to using my Samsung F480. Instead of Formating the memory stick in the phone it self. Format the memory stick in a computer using the adapter that you get with it when purchased.

You can't augment the internal memory, short of replacing the entire motherboard. And if you're going to take the innards out of another Sansa, why don't you just use that other Sansa instead?
You can add memory in 2GB chunks by using microSD cards. Photos and videos must be in the 2GB internal memory, but any music you put into a MUSIC folder on the card will appear and play on the Sansa. By putting different albums (or sets of albums) on different cards, you can easily switch between them.
Be sure you use microSD cards, not microSDHC cards.
You can put music on any as many microSD cards as you wish. Each microSD card will hold up to 2GB, as long as you put the files into a folder called "MUSIC." You can't put any photos or videos on the cards, however, only audios. And, of course, you can only have one card in the e250 at any one time, but you can swap them in and out.
Make sure you use microSD cards. The e-series will not use 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.
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.
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.
