My 270e Sansa

My Sansa 270e wont read any sdhc cards.  All my other deivices read them fine. All of them are SanDisk SDHC cards . The cards open up Drive G, But, when clicked it asked for a disk to be inserted. Please help.  My Modes are Rhaposody and Playsforshure.  There appears to be no available new firmware. The sdhc i want to use is 8gb

The e270 is a version 1 model and only reads SD cards (2GB & less).

No, there isn’t a way to upgrade it to a version 2 that reads SDHC (4GB & more), but if you’re up to it you could install Rockbox, 3rd-party open-source firmware that will allow the larger cards to be read.

Check it out at www.rockbox.org.

Since you have Rhapsody and Plays For Sure modes, this confirms that you have an R (rhapsody) version e200.

Be sure, if you wish to try Rockbox on your device, to follow the installation directions for the R version, as it’s different.
