Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player
I have made sure that all the id3 tags are listed in the advanced properties summary on all of my mp3's. When attempting to sync with the m240 I get the title of the song but never the artist or album. Keeps displaying Unknown Artist. None of my music is protected so that's not the issue. Anyone have an idea on what the problem is. I've used Windows Media Player, Yahoo Search Engine, and even used an id3 tag software to try and fix. All programs I've used to sync display the id3 tags but they won't load to the m240. Help.
I can confirm that the following method works for me (finally):
1. Download and install Mp3tag (I'm using v. 2.48)
2. "Change" or "Add" the directory in which the mp3s reside
3. Make certain you have data for "Artist", "Album Artist", and "Album" (fill in if needed)
4. Select all mp3s and click the "Save" icon (or right-click them and choose "Save tag")
5. Transfer back to your Sansa device

On Sansa M240 go to USB mode and switch to MSC!!!, then copy your music to AUDIBLE. It works for me!!

First, copy your music over and format the drive, using right-click in Windows Explorer.
Unplug your player and in (the m240) go to settings>enable advanced>usb>enable MSC
Doing these steps will clear out any problem files and the MSC option will make the player display
as a drive in Windows Explorer.
Copy your music to the newly displayed audible folder.
Thats it, it should update the list.
The usb auto detect is the problem, its great if you are using the Sansa software, but for the rest of us, MSC is the best way to use management programs.

Don't rip the CDs with Media Player. Use Sansa software.

I am having this same problem and cannot find a solution either. I thought it might of been the method in which I was coping the music over so I tried doing the sync with Windows Media Player. No change. According to the factory literature it supports both V1 and V3 of ID3. Any other thoughts would be appreciated.
