Re: my MP3 has frozen and now i cand turn it off or on.

Take the front case of, if yoo dont have the small screw driver a sharp knife works...
then the battery is at the bottom, pull it up at the bottom untill yoo can see the copper lookin part, then put it back in the screen should've gone off by now...
then put it back on charge, and it should come up as charging, then you can switch it back on, if it asks for enable usb, click no, then it should work fine

How do I download Pictures to MP3?


A generic procedure is :-

  1. Turn on your computer. Plug the USB cable that came with your MP3 player into an open USB port on your computer.
  2. Step 2 Turn off your MP3 player and plug the other end of the USB cable into the USB port located on top of the player. Turn on the player.
  3. Step 3 On your computer, right-click the pictures you want and select "Copy" from the menu that appears.
  4. Step 4 Double-click the "My Computer" icon on your computer. Double-click "MP3 player " or ' MP3 Device" in the "My Computer" window.
  5. Step 5 Open the "Pictures" folder. Right-click and select "Paste" from the menu that appears.
  6. Step 6 Let the files copy. Click the "Safely Remove Device" icon located on the left side of the Start toolbar at the bottom of your screen.
  7. Step 7 Click "Safely Remove USB Storage Device." Wait for a message to appear that says it is safe to remove the device, and then unplug the USB cable from your computer and your MP3 player.

Frozen SanDisk M240 MP3

It will turn on but freezes at the opening screen. Cannot access the menu whatsoever. I've tried plugging it into USB in the back, removing the battery, sliding the Hold button to the right as advised in forum suggestions but nothing budges it from the opening screen. Also: it does not show up as being attached to any computer I plug it into. Got a fix?

If a reset does not work using the reset hole, then try this: First, back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and disconnect it from the computer. Then press and hold the play/puse button and turn it on simultaneously. The player should be in recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format. Then reload all of music back onto your player and it should work like new. Hope this helps!

Frozen screen

All you reaaly have to do is let the battery run out. Then once the mp3 is dead, charge it. The screen should be unfrozen.
