It is a miss print on the sansa box they have mp3 and wma backwards . we noticed the same thing . (wma consumes more space than mp3 ).

Re: sandisk sansa m240

Most of the specifications for WMA is based on 64 KPS sample rate and average 4 minutes per song. This is purely marketing garbage as I don't know of many people who listen to 64kps MP3s or WMA's. WMA's you download from Napster, rip from CD, or get from a subscription services are typically 192 KPS which is three times as large. Lowering your sample rate can make your music files smaller, but at a loss of audio quality. The lower the sample rate, the more compression fragments you will have. So it's a trade off between quality vs. quantity.

I only have 32 MB on my SanDisk M240, but it says there's only 32 KB left. Every time I remove a song to make more room, it shows LESS space. What's going on? Am I not supposed to remove and ad songs...

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the SanDisk website( Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

Sandisk m240 freezes halfway through playlist....

When you disconnect be sure to use windows' disconnect device safely  thing on the bottom right part of the screen by the clock. Even though the player says it's not writing it probably still is even after a long period of time so if you just unplug it it will mess up whatever mp3 it was transferring at the time.

Error message: Not enough space for music DB. Please free 4MB.

Hi I have just bought a Sandisk Sansa M250, we loaded som music on it and it lasted 2 hours, then it the message came "Not enough space for music DB please free 8 MB". I couldnt even go in to the menu. I contakted and 24 hours after they came up with an answer. If it's currently frozen, hold down the power button for 20 seconds in order to soft reset it. Let's try to format the player (THIS WILL ERASE ALL FILES FROM THE PLAYER). Plug it into your computer, then open My Computer, right-click the drive associated with the player, and choose Format. It may give you a choice of file system, if so, choose FAT (it may only let you choose FAT32, which is fine). Now click on Start and it should format the player. If not already done, please also update the firmware from this link: The 20 seconds on the power button didnt work, but the formation did. Hope this helps. //Cadmann Please bear with my english
