Here's the situation, i uploaded a .rar file from another computer onto my sansa m250 (which i think can work as a flash drive). I noticed that when i was uploading the .rar file on my computer, i could not see any of my music files, and that the normal RECORDING, ALBUM, etc. folders were not displayed.
Now i am back onto my computer, and i can see my music files, but i cannot seem to find the .rar file. I know it is there because my music takes up about 500mb, and the .rar takes up about 500mb, and the sansa displays about 1g free.
Not sure if this will help, but you could try a couple things: 1. Search for it. There should be a search option somewhere in the explorer window or on the start menu. If you know the name of the .rar file, you can search the mp3 player for it. 2. Go to your Control Panel -> Folder Options. Under the tab "view" make sure "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.

The Sansa m250 uses one AAA battery, it doesn't charge. To put songs on it, plug it into your computer via the wire it should have come with. The computer will take a while and then a box should pop up, where you can select to view files. Just drag and drop songs into that folder.
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
I've got vista on My computer & it works well,
I would check all my settings & stuff for it, but it fails to initialise(My Mp3) which is annoying. I just plug mine in & wait for it to load it, then it opens up the new drive thing, and i click"Open Folder" & everythings there.
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.
