Try this. Set up a new user on your PC. Go to start, control panel, User accounts, create a new account, leave the setting for computer administrator, once the new account is created, try and connect your SanDisk. If successful, copy all your music file to the new account and load your mp3 player up with music. This is much better than reinstalling windows. Try this and let me know.

If it still refuses to format, you can the reset the SanDisk Sansa M230and try again.

Will my mp3 player (sandisk sansa m230) charge


Assuming the computer puts out enough juice, yes. Not all USB ports do.

Plug it in, and the Sansa should say "Charging" if it is charging. If it doesn't, try a different USB port if possible. If your computer has ports on the front/side and on the back, the back ones are more likely to put out sufficient power.

Try changing the USB setting on your m230 from Auto to MSC.

My computer cannot pick my mp3 sansa player


This solution is specifically for the Sansa c200 series, but it will get you started in the right direction - check Sandisk's website for the specific method of entering MSC mode for your particular Sansa:
Connect the device to the PC in MSC Mode
View/c200: Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC
If that fails, unplug the Sansa from the computer. Uninstall all the Sansa software in the add/remove programs section of Control Panel. Reinstall the clean version of the software from Sandisk’s website – make sure you get the files for the c200 series. Then replug the Sansa and try again. The root of the problem is that Sansa has one set of drivers and Windows has another. If you plug the mp3 player into the computer before installing the Sansa drivers, the Windows drivers will trump the Sansa’s.
Here is a helpful link from Sandisk on the problem with extra information on Vista operating systems:
