Okay, when I plug in my Sandisk Sansa e250R (2GB) two removable disks appear under "My Computer", the first one is "Sansa e250R (F:)" and the second one is "Removable Disk (G:)". I put the 4GB micro sd into my Sandisk Sansa e250R (2GB) yet 'disk G' shows no capacity in used or free. Could it be player not being able to read that capacity of GB because I have a SD adapter for the 4GB micro SD and I put it in my digital player and it works fine. Or should go to a firmware upgrade even if it cleans out all my music or is it too risky as to damaging my Sandisk Sansa e250R (2GB).
In additon to that problem there is no longer a music folder list under 'disk F:' So I can't see what music is on there even thought its on the actual Sandisk Sansa e250R (2GB) and also I would like to know how to delete some songs on my Rhapsody channels.
If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)

place the blank card into the SanDisk player
go to SETTINGS press "enter"
go to SYSTEM SETTINGS press "enter
go to FORMAT press "enter"
it will ask "are you sure you want to format this device"?
dowload songs to REMOVABLE DISK drive F, at least that is what my PC assigned it to. You will overload your MP3 PLAYER if you continue to download to the Sanza Drive.
The player can read the card, but it is not going to add more memory space to the player. The function of the card reader is to enable your player to play songs that you otherwise couldn't play because the hard drive is full.
I called sansa and got this info on how to format the sansa and restore it back to default This helped me to detect the device and be able to put songs on it.
Turn off device put hold key on press and hold mic key while pluggin in the device to pc open sansa icon in my computer Up on top of my computer window click tools then folder options and click view tab then uncheck hide extension for known file types. Now click file new and choose text document then change the name from New Text Document.txt to sansa.fmt and click enter. It will ask you if you want to change the extention and you need to click yes. Now unplug your sansa from the pc and this will format your whole mp3 player. You will lose all your date but your sansa will be detected and working. Once it is done then turn off your device and plug it in while its off. It should show up in my documents now. The first drive is your hd on the device and the second one is for the extra micro disk.
Oh and another tip is to click show hidden files so that you can see the music folder. This way you can just drag and drop without having to use windows media player or Rhapsody.
If you formatted it thru Windows Media Player, or Rhapsody, it didnt really format properly.
Make sure the device is in Rhapsody Mode. Settings>Mode or USB Mode>Rhapsody.
On your computer go to Disk Management. Right Click on My Computer and select Manage. On the next window select Disk Management, under Storage. On the right side at the top of the window you will see the device listed (i.e. Sansa e250r). Right click on the device and select format. Dont select any other options, just hit Start.
Your device is now formatted properly.
Best of Luck.
