I have a M250, when I during it on - it says Initializing but doesn’t go any farther in the starting process. How can I get it going?
I realize this post is almost a year old, but I am having the same exact problem with my Sansa M260. I’ve searched for a solution but haven’t come across anyone else with this problem.
After turning it on, I see the “SanDisk Initializing” screen, then after about 5 seconds, it switches to the “Sansa, M260, 4GB” screen. And it becomes stuck in this loop.
After connecting it to my PC, it does not recognize the device at all. It turns on and gives me the same problem I stated above.
I’ve also tried the above with it being locked (hold switch moved over, showing orange), giving me the same results.
Is there any way I can MANUALLY reformat this device without having to connect it to the PC?
***Any other suggestions would be appreciated! ***
I have exactly the same problem… and no help seems to be in sight. I was a fool not to get an ipod!
here i am exactly the same problem too.
