Question about SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player
I recently got a new computer running Windows 7. Since then, I can't edit, change, delete, or even view any files on my SanDisk Sansa M250 player! (Which I had put on the player when I was using Windows XP). It shows that the player is almost full (which it is), but it does not show any files, so I can't delete or add anything to the player! I checked to see if there is a specific driver for Windows 7 that I am missing, but everything I can find just says that it is already compatible, though obviously it's not!
Hi I have just bought a Sandisk Sansa M250, we loaded som music on it and it lasted 2 hours, then it the message came "Not enough space for music DB please free 8 MB". I couldnt even go in to the menu. I contakted Sandisk.com and 24 hours after they came up with an answer. If it's currently frozen, hold down the power button for 20 seconds in order to soft reset it. Let's try to format the player (THIS WILL ERASE ALL FILES FROM THE PLAYER). Plug it into your computer, then open My Computer, right-click the drive associated with the player, and choose Format. It may give you a choice of file system, if so, choose FAT (it may only let you choose FAT32, which is fine). Now click on Start and it should format the player. If not already done, please also update the firmware from this link: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1368 The 20 seconds on the power button didnt work, but the formation did. Hope this helps. //Cadmann Please bear with my english

No solution. I'm sending mine back to Amazon for refund hopefully. 3.5 hours after opening the package it froze for me. It's now been 4 hours since I opened it. It has been frozen for at least 10 minutes since the last time I tried to turn it on. I tried reinserting battery, leaving battery out for a few minutes, plugging into USB when off, then when on. Nothing works. It starts "initializing" then goes to SANSA screen with V4.0.44A at top and m250 2.0GB at bottom. That is where it is still now more than 12 minutes later. How can I upgrade firmware if it is frozen? Read reviews on AMAZON, it is common. I have purchased electronics for over ten years. This is my first lemon. And I had an eMachine PC in 1999. And IT worked. I didn't short it or anything (the SANSA). It just stopped working suddenly.

Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:
I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players.
