How to transfer music

I'm new at this. My problem is I do a drag and drop of music files from my flash drive to my player (sandisk: m240). That turns out fine, but when I play the music I get the message "to continue listening to your subscription tracks, please sync".

would you have step by step instructions on how to transfer my music.

Any help would be apreciated

How do u download new music and delete old music, im having trouble with this PLEEEEASE HELP


When your player is connected to your computer with the USB connector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files on your player. Your player will appear as Sansa m230 or m240. Follow these steps:
1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer.
2. Delete your music files to the player with software tools like Rhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client.

To transfer music from your computer to your player:
1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer. (Can't find the USB port on your player? See The Basic Controls section on page 3.)
2. Drag and drop music files to the player from any location on your hard-drive

Can I use my apple compluter to transfer music to the m240?


You can if the m240 is set to mass storage, but dont think about using itunes, you'll have to use the finder to drag/drop files into your player.

Don't have a software to download music


Hello Nurock_nu107,

If you are trying to find music online to download, so that you can put them on your mp3 player then you can use company's such as Napster. I can not condone the use of Illegal music sites.

If you are wanting to put the music you already have onto the mp3 player sansa does not give out a special program to do so.

You can use windows media player or a program called winamp (google it if youd like) and you can open them, plug in your mp3 player and it will find the device. You can then drag and drop your music files onto the device as shown on the program.

Your second option is simply opening My Computer, plug in your mp3 player and when windows finds it a new drive will show up on your My Computer screen. This is your mp3 device. You can drag and drop your music files to this drive and it will transfer them to your mp3 player.

If you have any further question's or comment's feel free to post them and I will be of further assistance. Have a good day and thank you for choosing Fixya!

Sansa m230 not syncing music files or downloading them. Process leaves the Sansa m230 with 0 files and i am finding it impossible to load new file(s) ?


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. Then add music this way and see if it is works: 1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3. Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player?s memory are displayed. 4. Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer?s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5. Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

Synching songs to Sansa m240


YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE SYNCED RIGHT....YOU MIGHT NEED TO DRAG AND DROP YOUR FILES OR CONSIDER GETTING A SANDISK E200 OR A CX00 VERSION MP3 THEY ARE MUCH EASIER TO WORK WITH

You can manually transfer files thru My Computer>Device Name (m240). Just drop the files, no folders, into the device. Best of Luck.

You can connect the device to your computer and manage it thru "My Computer. Open My Computer, then open the device (i.e. Sansa m240). Inside there is a Music folder, you can delete them from here. You can also drag songs here to transfer to the player. If you are not able to see the "music" folder, you may need to enable "Hidden Files and Folders" on your computer. Best of Luck.
