Sansa Express 2GB not recognizing Micro card

This is regarding an earlier post having problems with my new Sandisk DS Micro card. I have been advised to update firmware and format Sansa with card in the device. Thank you to who ever sent that info to me. However, I have read some ‘horror stories’ regarding updating the firmware so I am reluctant. My firmware version is 01.01.01E2 - is this the latest, does anybody know?

When I put the 2GB card in the MP3 and go to system info it still shows 1954MB, which is the 2GB internal memory size! Does this mean that I definately have a faulty card?


Many thanks in anticipation.

Your firmware is not the latest - that’s 01.01.05A.  I haven’t seen many horror stories myself and I’ve been here for a little while; it’s the newest firmware, so a lot of people have it.  It works fine for me. *shrug*

Also, 1954MB sounds about right for any 2GB card, player, or flash drive.  Don’t forget that your card and player have the same capacity each to begin with.

Thanks to all who replied,


Yes, as I said, my player shows 1954MB, whether the card is in or not! Therefore, the card does not seem to be recognized! Could a firmware update and/or format fix this?
