I just decided to clean up my sansa e250 today and formated the drive. Seems to have been a mistake, because now I can't see my memory card when it is installed. Did I delete a folder with special info in it? Can I find this info anywhere to put it back in there? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

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.
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.
Hi those files are hidden files.....in your pc just Go to my computer ->tools ->folder option ->view->show hidden folders ....displays hidden files .....still cant find any files ...check memory status of the external card.....format it ......download songs to it....
Do you have a card reader on your pc? plug it in, open my computer, do you see the card there? if no.
Right click my computer icon on desktop or in start menu, select manage, on the left side select disk management, find the storage card from the drive list, right click create partition or Format, I would go with fat32 format to be sure. then you should see it on the computer asuming if you see the card in disk management but not in my computer. if you don't see the card in disk management and this is a new card. something is wrong, possibly the card reader is broken or there is another issue with your pc, or possibly your sansa has a faulty card slot which has caused the issue. It should work plug and play basicly.
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.
