Problem synching Sansa m240

My sansa isn't working right. I want to delete an old song and add a new one, but when I connected it to the computer and went into Windows Media Player, WMP said that my mp3 player had no files on it. Also, when it is connected, it says MSC instead of MTP like it usually does. How can I fix this?

Adriva, Why stay away from the m240 series? Just curious. However, I am in 100% agreement with you. I own 3 Sansa's because at the time I couldn't afford anything better. Out of the three only the original, a SDMX1 - 512 R, still works correctly. My main complaint about the SDMX1 is the amount of time it taks to FFW or RWD. It may be ok for a 3 minute song, but I listen to a lot of audio books and you can just about forget trying to find your place. You try to FFW and it takes FOREVER to advance just a few minutes. Then, because of the way the controls are set up you wind up jumping 10 tracks ahead. Why do I have to keep FFW or RWDing? Well the SDMX1 can never seem to remember where it was when I turned it off. Now this is hard enought to do when you are sitting and listening to it, but you can forget about doing it while driving. The next two Sansa I got ( thinking they would be better) were the m240s. I got one for me and one for my son. Mine died with in 6 months. Will not do anything. New battery makes no difference. So I took my sons after he complined about it not working. The problem with his is that when it is turned OFF, it drains the battery ( A BRAND NEW BATTERY) in about 5 minutes. You can listen to it for hours but turn it off and leave the battery in and it is dead within minutes. Also I was able to listen to my older SDMX1 (512m) for about 16 hours with a new battery, I get nothing like that with my m240. Now my m240 will not let me put new books on it. It keeps saying it is full. I tried using it like a HD and put some books on there. Then when I turned it on, the books didn't show. So I set it to be a music device and put some on and had no better luck. I couldn't remove the books, couldn't copy new stuff on. I heard there was a way to do a HARD reset....like holding down a button combo and turning it on. Has anyone heard of this? Can anyone suggest a solution to my problems (Short of an ipod?) I got the sansa because they are cheap and I got what I paid for. I've just had a sandisk thumbdrive go bad. I think I've made my last Sandisk purchase ever. Can anyone suggest an MP3 player for between $70-$100 with 1-2 gigs of space? Thanks Modgod

Don't use de Windows Media Player to manage the files. Use your MP3 player like a HD or a Floppy. Simply drag and drop the files on it. This works only if your computer recognize the device. I'm (unfortunately) a m240 sansa user. It's gonna be the last m200 series I ever used. I guess we have to stay away from this m200 series of Sansa...

When your Sansa is not connected to the computer, go into the menu, select Settings => USB and change from MSC to either MTP or Auto.

Cannot delete the songs on mp3


I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'

TO DELETE
1)Plug in
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else

Bad track and Battery


Make sure the hold switch is not engaged.
Remove the songs from the player and then reload them. If they are froma subscription service, make sure they do not have fixed-term licenses on them. Right-click song --> Properties --> digital rights or media usage rights
Use Windows Media Player to view the songs that are stored on your mp3 player - best to view them in the "Sync" tab. Find the song that you want to delete, right-click the song, and select Delete (or left-click and press Delete on your keyboard). Voila!
