Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

Can't delete files off of my sandisk m240

My sandisk m240 can be played normally, but when I try to see or delete my music on it, the files are missing. Plus, when I add music to my m240, the files aren't added to the music folder like they used to be, they are just put on the main folder of the player. I would like to atleast reset the player, but I don't know how. If you know how to reset the sandisk m240, or, if you know a better way to solve my problem, please tell me.

I can help with the reset problem. You have to format your player by right clicking on the Sansa icon. This will erase all your files, so back them up if you wish to keep them. The folder stucture on the Sansa is not very logical and I still haven't figured it out. I have had my player almost 2 months now. hope this helps. J

None of these solutions have helped me what so ever they give no detail about what the there talking about and the people who wrote them should give up life. PS. Thanks for absolutely nothing.

I'm having the same problem. Somehow some whole file of music is permanantly embedded in there that you can fill on top of, and if you look in the mp3 it will show enpty when you perform the right click dump. There is a sansa updater to try. In my case, the actual disc was loaded into another pc but not this one. Therefore it worked fine w/media player but not to the extent of dumping the files loaded from the original machine. That's two solutions. Download the updater from them w/your sandisk connected or reload the original disc into the player. This solved my problem.

Hey i know how to fix this it happened to me and i had no idea what was happening you go to settings then to one of the folders in there i dont know what it is called but you can search until you find the one with the auto detect and MSC files on them. Make sure the tick is next to the MSC file and not the Auto Detect

I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.

How do I reset or clear all my music files on my Sansa m240?


connect your M240 to your computer via the usb, go to My Computer and you should see it listed there as M240. Double click to open and delete the files you want to remove.

Or you can use windows media player .. by going to FILE, OPEN and choose the M240 (will located under My Computer).

Error message: Not enough space for music DB. Please free 4MB.


Hi I have just bought a Sandisk Sansa M250, we loaded som music on it and it lasted 2 hours, then it the message came "Not enough space for music DB please free 8 MB". I couldnt even go in to the menu. I contakted Sandisk.com and 24 hours after they came up with an answer. If it's currently frozen, hold down the power button for 20 seconds in order to soft reset it. Let's try to format the player (THIS WILL ERASE ALL FILES FROM THE PLAYER). Plug it into your computer, then open My Computer, right-click the drive associated with the player, and choose Format. It may give you a choice of file system, if so, choose FAT (it may only let you choose FAT32, which is fine). Now click on Start and it should format the player. If not already done, please also update the firmware from this link: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1368 The 20 seconds on the power button didnt work, but the formation did. Hope this helps. //Cadmann Please bear with my english
