Re: sansa m240

I actually called sansa and they tried to help me by resetting it so since i only had it for a day short of a month they told me to take it to circuit city and return it..apparently its a software problem...circuit city was more than happy to exchange it for me!!!

Re: sansa m240

Hi. I'm having the same problem with my m250 and am concerned, since I've only had it for a month. Nothing I do, including removing the battery, hooking it up to my computer again, or holding the power button down for a long period of time works.

My sansa M240 WonT turn on all the way

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Help Me! Sansa m240 say only 'Finalizing Update" then turns off

Oh lol this is easy. just go onto realplayer or something then go on the tab burn/transfer then it will tell u your songs delete them all. then try turning your mp3 on and going to "settings" then go all the way to the bottom of that page then click "reset all" then go back to windows media player and put your songs on.

I can not get the song off that came with the mp3 player. help!!!

It might be a glitch and I had my Sandisc Sansa e250R mp3 player for a very short time but I think if you delete the Rhapsody Channels with the player instead of the computer it might work. Hope it works
