Question about SanDisk Sansa m200 (2 GB) MP3 Player

2 Answers

No response, no turn-on, dead player! help!

I was loading files, when the transfer locked up, and the computer threw an error. i couldn't do anything but unplug the player! After I did this, i tried plugging it back in, and half of the world "initializing" popped up on the screen, the first half was missing! it did not do anything more. so i unplugged it again. Now when I plug it in, nothing happens. The computer recognizes that new hardware is plugged in, but cannot recognize what it is. Nothing comes on the mp3 player's screen. It will not power up when i hit the power button. It has no response, it acts like there is no battery in it. I have taken the battery out, and put it back in. Nothing happens when any of the buttons are pressed, or when it is plugged into the computer. Is there anything I can do to get this thing working again! It is the M260 if that matters.

Hi guys! I've got a brand-new solution to this dead-end problem. BUT, the downside is that you'll need another similar player. Here's what I've done to unfreeze my Sansa m230. 1. I've opened the cases of both our Sansa m230s. 2. Connected the healthy one to the computer via USB. 3. After it was connected I've hot-swapped the "Samsung k9k4g08u0m-pcb0" memory chip with the one which was causing the problem. 4. Finally, I've formatted it through WMP10. Only synchronizing in MTP mode using WMP11 since. Hope that helps. Amakorkos

My player got problem


Connect your computer to the sansa, then search for the files using the search key from the start key, search for all files with an * for detecting all the files. Select all and transfer all files to a folder. then delete off all the files and format if the sansa gets detected. if so your memory is back to normal. transfer all your files again back but make sure that the next time you load only the good ones. Hope this helps you off.Good day

Syncing with Windows Media Player


Place the music files that you want to transfer into the My Music folder of your computer - Windows will re-read them, and then you can synchronize to your device. Also, make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged on the mp3 player - it probably isn't, but just check.

Transferring music to new pc


You must use the music transfer software that came with the CD (also avail on Rio website) - which will not load on newer, Vista running computers.
