To charge your player, with the player on OFF, connect it to a computer or other charging device. Then, after everyting is connected, then turn your player to ON. (For some reason, my player doesn't charge if it is already ON while being connected to the computer or other device.) It will charge.
This is the solution that I use for the music. Connect you player to the computer. Turn it ON after being connected. Go to FILE NAVIGATIONN. Copy your music there. (not in any forler, but as a separate entry in FILE NAVIGATION) Next, disconnect your player from the computer. (Use the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE feature for this.)
On the player, there is a PLAY button (NOT THE ONE MARKED "M", BUT THE ONE WITH THE RIGHT FACING ARROW WITH THE TWO BARS) next to the volumn button. After going into the FILE NAVIGATION menue, scroll down to the song(s) and/or music you want to move. Click the song using PLAY. You will see three options: MOVE, COPY, and DELETE. Scroll down to the MOVE option. In the main menue of FILE NAVIGATION, scroll down to MUSIC. Now click the "M" button (the one next to the button with two arrows and one bar). A screen will come up that says that the file is being moved. The song will now be in the MUSIC folder.
You could use the COPY or DELETE features for their respected funtions if you want to when these functions appear.
Most probably you accidentally switch the play mode to " INTRO" check your display if it does indicate Letter " I" in it. if does any music you play will be in "INTRO" mode. IF you still have the manual for your player check the 'PLAY MODE" setting. From this setting you can choose play mode from "FOLDER" "NORMAL" "INTRO""REPEAT 1" REPEAT ALL" to play in continuously select "NORMAL" mode.
I'm not sure if your player do have the same procedure in changing play mode . But try this , while on play mode . Press menu and a dialogue box will appear scroll and select "NORMAL"
Make sure that Windows Explorer is configured to display hidden and system files. Open the "My Computer" icon on the desktop; select menu "Tools: Folder Options..."; select the "view" tab; select the "Show hidden files and folders".
If that doesn't work, try formating the Sansa C240. Press the "Menu" button, scroll down and select "System Info", scroll down and select "Format". It should erase the flash memory and create the required folders.
It's in the friggin manual:
You can set your player to play songs randomly (Shuffle All ) or repeatedly (Repeat
One or Repeat All ).
1 From the main menu, select > Play mode.
2 Press 3 or 4 to scroll up or down the options.
3 Press 2 to select an option.
While you are playing music, you can see the above active play mode screen.
Since you cannot see what you are doing on the screen, I will tell you what buttons to push to un-shuffle your songs. Press the buttons in the exact order I tell you. Ok. Turn off the mp3 player, then turn it back on. Press the little menu button. Push the left arrow button once. Press the play button 3 times slowly. You are now in the menu that gives you the following options to unshuffle your music: 1. Off 2. Repeat single Track 3. Shuffle/No Repeat 4. Repeat all Tracks 5. Repeat all With Shuffle
I'm guessing that you may have to push the down arrow once or the up arrow once. This should select the Repeat all Tracks option. After scrolling up or down one time, press the play button once, then the menu button twice. Now push play to start your music. If this does not work, you can set your player back to the default settings by pushing the menu button once, pushing left arrow once, hit the play button. Scroll down 5 times, hit the play button, and push down 3 times. Be careful, because if you do not push the down arrow THREE times, you might accidentally select the option of erasing the memory.Once you push down 3 times and hit the play button, push down once more to select Yes of reseting your player back to it's original settings. This should help you out.
Reset the player once to make sure it isn't a temporary glitch - reset will NOT erase all of your songs.
Press the downward part of the circular ring when the word "music" is on your screen, and see if it will scroll doen to FM; if the word "music" does not appear, press the left side of the circular ring until the word "Music" appears on the screen
It is stuck on "Repeat One" - refer to p.23 of your user's manual -
You can set your player to play music tracks randomly (Shuffle All ) or repeatedly (Repeat One or
Repeat All ).
1. From the main menu, select Settings > Play mode.
2. Use the VERTICAL TOUCH STRIP to scroll up or down the options.
3. Press § to select an option.
4. Press § again to deselect an option.
While you are playing music you can see the following active play mode screen.
If you installed the firmware update, you might have forgotten to change the device to MSC mode.. try going to settings>USB mode>MSC
This should probably work..
to stop a song while its playing, click the |<< button while you have the screen with the current song. (you can pause a song on this same screen with the >|| button) If you have gone back to any of the menu screens, wait for a couple seconds and the player will automatically go back tot he song display screen so you can stop the song.
