turn on your sansa player. (don't plug into to computer yet)
Click Menu
Scroll through using down area till you get to SETTINGS.
Click down till you see USB.
Choose auto detect for Windows Media Player 10.
Choose MSC if you have Windows Media Player 9 or earlier.
Good luck.
This is what is needed on the C-100.

My Sansa m230 player has stopped working


HI, it is caused by virus by an application installed or when too much programs are running at ones.

How to solve this problem, you will have to flash the memory of the phone cause it is malfunctioning that is while it is freezes.

After flashing the memory comes back to normal again and you can start using it again.

Take care.

Sansa m230 not syncing music files or downloading them. Process leaves the Sansa m230 with 0 files and i am finding it impossible to load new file(s) ?


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. Then add music this way and see if it is works: 1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3. Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player?s memory are displayed. 4. Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer?s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5. Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

Window media player is not recognizing my sansa m230


Refresh drivers - connect player to PC. Right-click My Computer & select Manage. Click Device Manager on left pane. Player will show on right pane as USB Mass Storage device or Portable Device.

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers: right-click the entry with the error & select Uninstall. On top menu, click Action then select Scan For Hardware Changes.

Computer not recognizing MP3 player


We had this problem with our son's Sansa Fuze. The fix was to update Windows Media Player on the computer that wasn't seeing it. So, if you're running different versions of WMP, you might want to try that.

Well, is it in MTP mode or MSC mode (menu > settings > USB)?

If it's in MTP mode, Windows Media Player should recognize it.

If it's in MSC mode, it acts like a USB thumb drive.

You should be able to add music in either mode, but I've found MSC mode simply doesn't work, though it once seemed to. Also, the Sansa m230 will not work with USB 1.1, only 2.0. Next time, I'm getting something Rockbox runs on!

SanDisk Initializing


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Sansa M230 not seen in Explorer or Windows Media Player


We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.
