Re: mp3 "sandisk sansa m250" says no file
This is a common problem with MP3 players with almost a full memory. Apparently, the firmware gets messed up and eventually losses recognition of its purpose or some of the files it keeps.
Sandisk has anticipated this problem and has posted online utilities just for this purpose. They are available at > http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Please connect your player to the PC as it will be detected and the files shown on the window of My computers as the new drive. Now click and open all the files present on the player. You can easily click on the files to deleted.
I had a similar problem.
This is how I fixed Sansa m250 2GB
I have Windows XP, so if you have a different version of
Windows you might have to do something else.
Connect the player to your computer.
From My Computer open the drive that says SANSA M250
If there is no folder called "audio" make a folder
named that. (this is where your future mp3 files will be stored).
My audio folder was missing, so I had to do this.
Now go back to My Computer right click on the SANSA M250
drive scroll down the menu and open the folder that says "Open As Portable
Now click on the icon that says "SANSA M250"
Now open the folder that says "FOUND.000".
If you are having the same problem that I did all your old
mp3 files will show up with a file extension .CHK instead of mp3 and the names
will be numbers. You can either erase all these & reload all your songs
into the "audio" folder I mentioned previously or you can rename each
file extension to a .MP3 instead of .CHK. (after you change them to .MP3 they
will load on your mp3 player. But, remember if you do choose to rename them
instead of erasing and reloading, when you want to permanently delete them you
will have to access the "FOUND.000" folder again to do that.
it could be the classic lockup that these players are famous for but usually they botup to the sandisk screen and then its a brick, anyway try a total hardware reset by:
1 taking out the battery.
2 holding the powerbutton down for 40 seconds
3 waiting 5 minutes before putting in a fresh battery and starting over.
