Sansa e250 not playing/recognizing songs stored on internal memory, only on card

My sansa only plays and recognizes songs off of my memory card, it doesn't even show any songs at all if they are stored on internal memory. It never has, and i've just dealt with it, but now i want to fix it. I can see the songs from my computer, but the mp3 player doesn't even show them. I also have a problem with the "refreshing database" taking 5 minutes, but i'm just assuming that is supposed to do that because maybe it can't remember the songs stored on the card and has to "refresh the database" every time it's turned on? hopefully...i hope it's not a problem with the thing. This is getting irritating, and i have stopped using it because i don't want to wait on the database..maybe i won't have this problem when it can read the songs off of the player. I just followed your instructions to fix the "refreshing database" problem, i hope it fixes it, it's been saying "writing" for the last 10 minutes since i finished formatting it the way you said. I hope you can help! Thank you!

I inserted a 2gb micro sd card into my 4gb sansa fuze for more memory and it's still saying I don't have enough space on it when I go to add a song off of limewire


Inserting a microSD card into the Sansa does nto magically expand its internal memory. The card is a separate chunk of memory. You can move some songs from the internal memory to the card to free up some internal memory. Or you can add the new song to the card.

Sansa 250, and media converter won't recognize new mini sd card


The Sansa will only play videos stored in its internal memory, not on a microSD card. You can put music on the card, but not videos or photos.

Go to the knowledge base on the Sansa site and find this (chances are you have an SDHC card in an incompatible unit):

For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards 
NOTE: Firmware is not interchangeable. 

Sansa e200R - up to 2GB microSD cards 

Sansa e100 - supports SD cards up to 2GB

Trouble using an SD Card


If Sansa e130 or 140 is version 1.x.x.10, SD card MUST be formatted as FAT (FAT16). Music files need to be on the root directory for better performance. I have a SD card (2 gig) formatted as FAT16 and the music plays good.

I was not able to upgrade my e130 to Version 2.0.0.1 Firmware.
Hope this helps

Sync to player and memory card without duplicates


I got this from:http://www.livedigitally.com/2005/06/27/sandisk-sansa-e130-the-micro-version-of-the-ipod-mini/ Create two playlists with names such as 1. SANSA Internal and 2. SANSA 2GB (assuming your SD card is 2gb). Load songs into each playlist. Edit the sync properties for each drive to only sycn to those playlists. Sync!

Expansion card


The issue with the card is not song format as you said it's the card format. When you put you're it into the CPU I?m assuming that you clicked yes on the warning/and or problem window and it formatted it to the CPU. So what you need to do is find what format the hardrive /and or internal memory is and format the card to that.
