Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sansa 240 will only play from the beginning of tracks

I just got it, because I liked my Sansa c100. I use them for audio books. But the new one won't fast-forward or -back. The display (when holding the button) shows scrolling through the minutes, but when you let up it plays from the beginning, while still displaying the minutes you wanted. Also, when turned off, it returns to the beginning of the track, instead of remembering where I turned it off. Or is it defective?

    This is driving me crazy too. When I listen to an audiobook, I can be 30 minutes into a "chapter", but when I shut it off it goes back to the beginning and I have to listen to the chapter all over again. I can't get it to restart where it left off. I went to the Sandisk site and found the instructions, but it doesn't say anything about this problem.

The database seems to be overloaded while rebuilding the files info and playlists.

For the c100 series connect the player to the computer how to delete files see:

When linked to the computer there are 2 different connection modes possible:
  • MSC mode seeing the player as a removable disk using Windows Explorer.
  • MTP mode seeing the Sansa player as a Media device using software like Windows Media Player.
For "cleaning up" your database check both lists. How to switch to MSC / MTP mode:

My sansa clip won't play the songs I loaded on!


I've had this happen a couple of times in the last 6 months. You can get it to play again by chosing the format option from the settings menu. Of course, then you've lost everything you had loaded on to it. Download your music/audio books again and they will play.

Fast forwarding for listening to books


I use a Creative Zen V Plus, but have a similar problem.

First, an explanation: the issue is probably with the timecode in the audio track. This can happen when the audio file is created on a computer. The audiobook was likely "ripped" to a file from the original audiobook CD, and your player may not like the format the file is in. The best solution in this case is to recreate the audio files yourself. First remove all of the files from your Sansa for that particular book. Then use CD-burning software on your computer to create an audio CD (not a data CD!) from the files you got from the library. Finally, use the software that came with your Sansa to transfer the audio CD back to your Sansa. This way you know you are getting a correct format on your player.

If you have an additional issue (like me) where the tracks are too long and go back to the beginning every time you turn your player off, you may have to use an audio editor such as Audacity to chop the long tracks up into smaller tracks, but this is quite time consuming. It is best to acquire audiobooks in smaller tracks in the first place. This is the problem I have been faced with while using Audible.com to listen to audiobooks.

Sansa audio book scramble


The Sansa orders tracks alphabetically. It goes by the track name encoded internally, not by filename. You can use Media Player or some other program to rename the track, then transfer them to the Sansa.

Playback of audio files does not resume where I left off when powering back on


I have an e260. I use it for audiobooks a lot. I just press pause (centre top of the dial), and the track will resume from there next time (unless I go back to the main menu for radio of course.)

Cant get my sansa to shut off


This is a freeze issue. Let it eventually just run down on betteries and be sure you only add tracks which are formatted for the Sansa to be able to play. If there is a reset button combo in the manual, use that otherwise draining the battery will work... Thanks!
