It is complicate,

it works on Mac OS only if you downgrade firmware for sandisk.
Here is how to do it.

If system crashes while you install the firmware you will damage the sansa, Mac OX is solid , but be careful with the USB cable.

Look in the manual for the m200 series players on page 31 under USB, how to select Auto Dectect (MTP or MSC) or only MSC :
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/downloads/um/sansa-m200-um.pdf
MTP is Media Transfer Protocol, seeing the player as a media device.
MSC is Mass Storage Class, seeing the player as a removable disk.

Player won't work with vista? can i download software to make it compatible with vista?


Hello,

When you're able to view the menus of the player, look in the manual on page 30 = page 31 of the pdf file for the USB connection mode on your player:
Settings
USB > Auto Detect
> MSC
M200 series manual in pdf format:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/downloads/um/sansa-m200-um.pdf
With Windows Media Player 11 under Vista, the player should be
recognized as a media device in this Microsoft Media Player. Transfers can be made in MTP mode (Media Transfer Protocol) using WMP 11: USB mode should be in Auto Detect.
In Autodetect mode files on the player can also be viewed in the Explorer mode under My Computer, seeing the player as an external flash drive.
In WMP11 use Library and Sync mode for creating playlists and synchronizing music. More about how to use WMP11, see the help items in the player (click on e.g. Library or Sync etc.) or go to the Microsoft site:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/using.mspx


When USB mode is set to MSC mode (Mass Storage Class) the player can only be viewed in the Explorer under My Computer.

Trying to add 4 GB microSDHC card to sandisk sansa e260. connect e260 to computer via USB. insert micro card. computer does not recognize microcard. why?


Hello,

The player automatically connects to the computer in Media Transfer Protocol mode (MTP mode).
For accessing the microSD card in the player, the USB connection in the player has to be set to MSC mode, see:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/167

How to change USB mode for the e200 series, proceed as next:
1. From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
2. Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC.

How do i free 8mb in Sandisk Sansa M250 i formated but the same result happens plz help me!!!!


SanDisk tech support recommends formatting the m200 series in both MSC and MTP modes to completely clear out all work areas,"fragments" and residual data. The m200 has a very basic Operating System that doesn't have a defrag option. According to tech support, the m200 needs formmating occasionally to keep it working smoothly. I learned that formatting will also clear up intermittent hang-ups. I format mine each time I reload it.

Format in MSC Mode


With the m200 not connected to the PC, power it on, press the menu key. Select "Settings", then USB, then MSC.

Connect the m200 to the PC via the USB cable

Right click on the "Start" button.

Left click on "Explore"

Find the m200. It will show as a hard drive, for example: "SANSA M250"


Right click on the m200 device and select "Format"

After formatting is complete, click on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon on the System Tray and stop the device

Disconnect the m200 from the PC.


Format in MTP Mode


With the m200 not connected to the PC, power it on, press the menu key. Select "Settings", then USB, then Auto Detect.

Connect the m200 to the PC via the USB cable.

Right click on the "Start" button.

Left click on "Explore"

Find the m200. This time it will not show as a hard drive but as a music device, for example: "SanDisk Sansa m250"Note there is no drive letter in MTP mode.

Right click on the m200 device and select "Format"

After formatting is complete, disconnect the m200 from the PC. There is no icon to stop the device.

Your m200 device is now formatted and ready to reload.


By the way, MSC mode is mostly for use with other than Windows XP computers. If you are using WinXP and Windows Media Player 10, you might consider using MTP mode and WMP to manage the m200's.

I have a SanDisk Sansa m200 mp3 and a macbook pro


Even on a Macbook pro, you should be able to access your "my computer" option, where it shows you the local disk drives and everything. your mp3 player icon should appear there. then after you click on the icon it should bring up a page containing folders "on" your mp3 player. there doesnt have to be any music or videos or anything like that to have the folders already on there. now i dont have a mac but what i suggested you to do should work.
