Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

Problems uploading music

I recently reformatted my Sansa m240. I deid it because it had music from another computer on it that I couldn't delete, so I just wiped it. I loaded it up with more music, but now when I turn it on it says "Not Enough Space for Music DB, Please Free up 4 MB," and then reverts to a display that says "No Files." However, when I check how much I have stored on the mp3 player, it says I have 280 MB left.

How do I deal with this bizarre problem so I can use this thing for what it was intended for?

Cannot delete music files


Try putting the player into the other sync mode (MSC or MTP), you probably put your files in one mode and his are in the other mode. Reconnect the computer after changing the mode and see if you can find them. Changing from MSC to MTP is somewhere in the menu, not quite sure on this model, but look around for it.

I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.

Deleteing problems


Go to My Computer>Device Name (m240)>MUSIC Folder, all of the contents are there,

If you do not see a MUSIC folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your computer.



Best of Luck.

Can't delete songs


Go to Windows Media Player under the Sync tab, over on the far left should be the name of the player, click on it and find the name of the song by album title, artist, or whatever, click on the title and click delete and you should be able to delete any song you like without deleting them all

You can connect the device to your computer and manage it thru "My Computer. Open My Computer, then open the device (i.e. Sansa m240). Inside there is a Music folder, you can delete them from here. You can also drag songs here to transfer to the player. If you are not able to see the "music" folder, you may need to enable "Hidden Files and Folders" on your computer. Best of Luck.
