Does anyone know if mine, a SanDisk 1.0 GB is salvageable? The CD that came with it was destroyed when my helper cut into it opening the plastic...:( so it has never been there away around this...

Definitely! You don't need the software at all. Just connect the player to your computer with the USB. It should open as a disk drive (if it asks you, choose 'open folder to view files') and then you can just copy music to it with drag and drop. Then use 'safely remove hardware' before you unplug it again, and you should be 'good to go'.

Used for years. Deleted mp3 files. Tried to reload new mp3 files by select all and drag and drop to audible folder. Message said it was full and would only load partial. Deleted partial load safely...

Sorry mate it has been corrupted and and may not work any more it seems the set up and read file that is like a operating system has been moved or deleted. The same things happens with usb drives.or has been disconnected without using the disconnect usb device icon.

Your device is too full.

The device needs 8MB of free space to create the database or menu.

Connect the device to your computer, go to My Computer>Device Name (m240)>Open the device and manually delete some songs, 10 should suffice.

Disconnect the device and re-start it.

Your device should function as normal.

Best of Luck.

Sandisk sansa m240 mp3 player

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.
