First, make sure it's a microSD card and not a microSDHC card. microSD cards max out at 2GB in size while microSDHC cards start at 4GB and go to 32GB. Second, make sure all your music is in a folder called "MUSIC".

If that doesn't do it, please reply to this post and we can go from there.

These are famous for that. I have several Sansas and they all have done it. It happened when your battery completely ran out. What you need to do is HOLD THE POWER ON/OFF BUTTON DOWN FOR 15

I also have an e250. You have probably figured it out by now, but if you have not, it is an easy fix.
While the song you want deleted is playing, just press the menu button at the bottom of the ring. The menu will come up, then scroll down to the bottom and therewill be the option to "Delete This Song". Press Delete and you will be prompted to select YES or NO. Choose yes and song will be deleted. The next song on the list will be qued but will be in PAUSED mode. You can also hook up to your computer and delete songs from the song menu page. Hope this helped.

You've got music with DRM that requires regular key resets. You'll have to sync with a server to renew the licensing.

Press and hold the power button. Hold it long enough (10 to 15 seconds ) it will eventually turn the frozen player off. Press the power button again to turn it back on. You can try formatting the player again either through windows media player or (if a v2 model) through the player's own menu system. Failing that, put the player in MSC mode and format it from Windows Explorer. I would also update the firmware. I have attached the link to the Sansa site to find the firmware and further instructions.
Thanks for using FixYa.

This is what I recieved when I asked a third party for help with this same problem. I worked. Good luck:

The error you are receiving may be
resolved by changing the USB settings within your device. Your device
uses two different transfer modes that are automatically selected by the
device; the primary mode is MTP. MTP mode is what allows the transfer of
the license along with the WMA (Windows Media Audio) title. Can you
please complete the following steps to change the USB setting?

(Please note: Do not connect the device to the computer until step 4.)

1. Power on the device and select 'Settings'.
2. Scroll to and select 'USB Mode' (or 'Mode').
3. Scroll to and select 'MTP' (or 'PlaysForSure Mode').
4. Connect the device to your computer.
5. Open 'My Computer’ > Sansa e280.
6. Delete any WMA (Windows Media Audio) files you see that are of books
you cannot play.
7. Open the OverDrive Media Console and attempt to transfer the audio
book again.

"You need to format your device, the best recommendation is to place it into MSC mode. This is the Sansa's mass storage mode and it allows the device to be treated as a drive. Go to the settings menu and find USB Mode. There are two choices, MSC and MTP. Choose MSC. MTP is for music transfer using a media player software like Windows Media Player. If you don't have a way to set MSC mode with a menu on the device, engage the 'hold' switch, and while holding down the left or right button (others report also using the center button), plug the device into the USB connector. Make sure the USB is already plugged into the computer. You shouldn't need to do this with a standard e250; the menu should work. After you have connected the device in MSC mode, right click My Computer and choose Manage from the menu. Find Disk Management and select it. The disks should be numbered, starting with 0 for the C: drive. You should see a drive that says SANSA E250, or something similar. Write down the type of file system if it is shown. Most e250's says FAT32. Some are FAT, but check to be sure. There will be two partitions on the disk. The larger of the two is for your music files. The smaller is for when the device goes into "hibernation" - it's so you'll be back to the exact same song when it powers back on. Right click the larger partition and choose Format from the menu. You will see the format dialog. Set the volume label to SANSA E250 (I believe that's your device type), set the file system to what you wrote down earlier (do NOT choose NTFS!) and leave the Allocation unit size at "Default." Do not check either of the two check boxes. Click on OK. Keep an eye on the partition in Disk Management and you will see the percent complete. When it's done, look in the System Tray (by the date and time). You should see an icon for safely removing hardware. Double-click it to bring up the safely remove hardware dialog. Click on the USB drive representing your Sansa device and click Stop. Another dialog will come up and you'll have to do this again. Close the dialog when the device has stopped. The device will restart and initialize the music database. You're done! Now change to MTP mode and sync the device and add your songs back in. Whenever you are in MSC mode, ALWAYS stop the device as I described in the paragraph above. That way you won't corrupt the drive."
