Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Frozen, and invisible!

Okay, so I recorded a lecture from my class yesterday. I still have all my songs, and a 1 hour lecure on my sansa m240. I got the lecture off by windows explorer drag and drop. Yay. An explorer thing came up when I popped it in the usb, saying it was nearly full...(it had a little over 100 mb left) I said no, don't auto delete my stuff, pretty please, I'll delete it later. I open it up, and there is none of my original music -to- delete. But it still displays that I only have 100 is mb left. Curious, I unhook the USB. I can still play the songs that technically don't exist, not even through the windows explorer view, let alone retardo WM Player. I plug it back it, but now I'm confused. I click auto delete the songs after sync, and I sync the rest of the drive full, thinking it'll auto delete. It syncs, but now it's full, and stays full. Now whenever I turn it on, I get an error message in German, because I'm taking German, and I thought it'd be clever to change the languages to learn a little. Well, I can't switch it back either, because whenever I go to the Sprache settings, and click English, it freezes. As I type it's done this for 15 whole minutes. Occasionally it'll just turn off at random. Also, it's been slow for the last week. I just though because I had half the drive full, it lagged automatically. Well, now it's frozen, yes I keep replacing the batteries, but nothing helps, and the last time I checked through Windows Explorer, the Audio and Record Files are gone, and also the table, but this started beforehand. I am friggen confused. What is going on?

Maybe your USB connection is not right.
I've had similar problem on C-100, an older model.
Main Menu
Setting USB should be MSC (if you use WMP9 or older)
USE autodetect if you have WMP10 or 11, (MTP)
Hope this helps.
DOn't plug in your sansa to your computer when changing these settings.

My Sandisk Sansa m240 lost all the songs and then I could not delete them. I was able to laod up new songs, but there was no spare memory. I was able to fix this issue by re-formating.

Using windows explorer right click on the "Sandisk sansa M240" and click "format".

Now working OK.
