Hello Everyone…


I am the proud owner of Sandisk E250 MP4 player and i havnt used it for like 2 weeks now due to this strange problem.



I have tried Reset All option from the User manual i also kept it turned off by draining its battery completly and did everything known to my knowledge and still no luck and finally found my way here and i am sure you guys can help me out on this silly yet annoying trouble i been facing.

try switching to MSC mode by going to

  1. Settings on your mp3 player
  2. Select ‘USB Mode’
  3. then choose MSC mode.
    plug it back to the computer. it will now be detected as a removable drive.
    right click on it then select ‘format’.
    i believe you know what to do next.

There are some threads floating around, but this might work in your case. You can try your recovery mode, and then manually formatting it by using the steps located in this thread Here
