Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Player will not start

Ok, everytime I turn on my Sansa m240, it gets to the very first page where you read: v4.0.44a SANSA m240 1.0GB And there it will stay, not loading, not running, nothing. No buttons work, and I can't even turn it off without removing the batery. I tried plugging it into my computer as if to download songs and still it stays frozen. I apologies if this problem was already stated, I just really want this thing fixed.

My sandisk sansa 1gb will not allow me to delete certain songs, i plug it in and pop up all my music but half of it isnt even visible, is there any other way to just delete everything off the device?

Try this:
Note:Make sure you have a charged battery
Turn the player off
Slide the Lock switch ON to insure MSC mode
Plug it in your PC .Open "My Computer" ;Right click on the Sansa m240 icon
Click on Format Choose FAT..not FAT32
Click "Start"...OK
Unplug and let it finalize .Slide Lock switch to OFF.
That is all!
