Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Buttons are nonresponsive

Just got this delivered today. I have loaded music into the unit, and the track title runs across the screen. But when I push play, although the play icon shows in the top left corner, it doesn't play. The volume button is not working. Once in a while, the volume indicator moves up a bit and I hear a couple of seconds of the song, but then it slides back to the left and stops playing. Any suggestions on what I might do? Returning to Amazon is a real bear. If I can get it figured out myself, I'd like to. But if it's hopeless, I'll have to face it. Thank you.

All downloaded music is "unknown" artist, title etc.

Hey, I am not sure about ubunta but in Windows, you need a program that "tags" the MP3. Just google MP3 tag editor and you will find some programs that do this. Again, not sure about ubunta but give it a shot. What this program does is let you edit the MP3 to the fullest. Song title, artist, album, everything...Check it out....

I can't add tracks to any of the playlists that I've created!

Are you creating playlists with Musicmatch or are you creating them directly on the DJ?

Let's say you have a playlist on your DJ and want to add a track to it. First, play the playlist. While it is playing, go to Music Library, find the track you want to add, select it with the thumbwheel, one of your choices in the menu that comes up is "Add to Selected". Select "Add to Selected". Now when the DJ reverts back to the screen showing the track being played. Hit the thumbwheel twice. A menu comes up. Select "Save as Playlist". Name it. Then delete your previous version of the playlist. Your new version will include the track (or tracks) you added.
Okay, that answered your specific question, but let me tell you it is much easier to build and organize, and yes, edit and/or add to your playlists from musicmatch.
After loading musicmatch, up near the top is a button called playlists. On its menu, select Playlist Manager. The window that opens has buttons that will let you create new playlists or modify old ones. You can dock your dj and edit the playlists on it from here or build playlists and then Send them to Portable Device (your DJ) Fairly easy.

Deleting songs.

Your DB might be corrupt. Folow the delete procedure one more time:
Delete Music Files
1) Connect your Sansa to the computer.
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
3) Select the place where you want to delete music files from
4) Highlight and delete the music file/s or folder from My Computer\Sansa
folder. (You can also select from a variety of music
software programs to transfer/synchronize your files).

If that fails, go ahead and update the firmware - it will delete everything, and allow you to start over from scratch among other things.

I lost my disc can i still download

You can put music on it by doing the following (assuming vista/XP environment):

Connect it to your PC using the provided USB cable.
Open windows explorer and navigate to your Sansa Clip.
Click through "sansa clip", "internal memory" to the "music" directory.
Drag and drop MP3/wav files to this directory. Feel free to create subdirectories.
Your music will be accessible after doing this.
Be aware that the clip ignores your directories. It will look for artist, album, and title tags to categorize your tracks. You may have to look for your tracks in the "unknown" album directory when playing if your tracks don't have these (ID3?) tags.

Good Luck!

I ned software

I just got a sansa c250 mp3 player. I loaded mp3 music onto it and it played but I couldn't control it. The buttons wouldn't respond. It would always just start from the first track but I couldn't stop it without turning it off. So I tried to format and reinstall the music but I lost the basic files/software initially on it, Can I get the software anywhere. Do I have a bad unit? The buttons don't seem to work. Thanks!

When i start my philips mp3 player i try to access my music and it freezes. also the the title of the tracks shows up as boxes. i think there maybe startup files on the mp3 player missing or tampered with

Sounds like the memory has corrupted.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Select repair/restore option and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-load the system files.

If this doesn't help, please post your model number so I can asist further.

How to transfer music from a cd to yp-p2 when the description of file is track1

modify the second CD by clicking on each individual song and giving it a title(It doesnt have to be the right song title you could put numbers also ex.1-13 if you wanted. just delete track in front of the numbers). That way the computer doesnt think that both of the cds are the samething

Plays the same introduction over and over

The juicebox has a built in video intro that plays when there is no media inserted; it's a cyclic clip from various cartoon network shows. In order to play a video, you have to insert a Juicebox Video cartridge into the player.
To use the MP3 kit, you put the SD card holder into the Juicebox. install the Juicebox software on your computer, put the USB card reader in your computer, and insert the supplied SD card. put a music CD in your computer, use the juicebox ripping software to convert the CD music into 128kbit MP3's, put them into the SD card. then take the SD card, put it in your juicebox SD card adaptor, turn it on. music will come out.
