Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player
Samsa M240 MP3 player tcnand0 On the MP3 player, go to Settings. Scroll down to USB. Set to MSC. (Not AutoDetect!) Background: MicroSoft has developed a new protocol for MP3 players and subscription services. If your M240 is set to AutoDetect under USB, then the transfer of files gets wonky. Changing the USB setting to MSC overrides the new MS protocol and forces Windows to recognize your MP3 player as a standard file directory.

Right click in windows explorer and select "Format". Then use Windows media player or explorer to add new songs...

I just turned it on and it took a long time to get to the menu. Then it said"No files" and when i press the menu button it said must free the 8mb,db crap.nothing works.I don't see TCNANDO,formatting doesn't work. i can't sync because it"has no ID" and I didn't do anything but try to just turn it on.My best solution is to get a new mp3 that's not Sandisk(Creative,Ipod)or trade it in using the warranty and wind up with the same problem...

I have the same problem with mine, except that it won't let me format it. Everytime I try to format, it'll format about 60% of it and then say "Windows was unable to complete the format". I'm sure that if I could just get it to format the stupid thing it would work again.

Attach MP3 player by USB cable. Go to "My Computer", double click on Sandisk then right click on TCNANDO. Select "Format". It will erase all your songs but you will be able to use the MP3 player again.

Even I have experienced the same problem... This has happned coz i deletd 3 folders ... I can recall their names... outta which one folder was of "Recordings". If we can find the same folders from somewhere.. the problem can be solved

I have the same problem. It happened after I performed a file upload using windows media player and then uploaded again without first disconnecting the player. I guess that messes up the units ability to build the file library. Should I resolve the issue through Sandisk or through the retailer?

Right click on the drive: defragment Error Checking that might work
