Re: sansa c240 isnt formatting!
#1 Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer. #2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives. #3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive. #4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'. #5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place. #6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Windows Media Player is the correct program.
The problem is with the songs themselves - the manual says it recognizes WMA's, but most WMA's have a DRM license on them that restricts what kind of mp3 player they will work with (if at all, and they expire over time).
Only download songs in mp3 format, and the songs will work - and they won't give you problems down the line.
I'm not sure what you are asking, but maybe my experience can help you. I was using Windows 2000 (it has no DRM) and the Sansa C240 was displayed in Windows Explorer like a removable drive. I could copy and delete files in Windows Explorer. I switched to Windows XP and when I connected the C240, no files were displayed for it in Windows Explorer. I realized that XP had DRM and all the media files had to be transfered with Windows Media Player. When I opened WMP, it recognized the C240, but it didn't list any of the mp3 files I had already loaded on the C240. WMP asked if I wanted to delete all the media currently on the C240, but I clicked No. After that, WMP worked like the old files didn't exist. It would only delete files that had been copied to the C240 when it was synced. I would recommend that you use Windows Media Player (or WinAmp) to delete all old media files on the C240 and use the sync button to copy and delete files from the C240. See Windows Media Player help for details.
I've worked mine out. When I put the songs on my MP3 I used Vista, I then changed to an XP install and this is when I couldn't see the songs on my MP3 player. When I went back to my Vista install I could see and edit the songs. Now I have cleaerd it I can go back to my XP install and use it as normal again. Basically you need to use the same version of windows you put the songs on with to edit them.
To delete songs from your device follow the steps below You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there. Either under sync panel in your windowsmedia player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete. To format it..on your device..go under..menu, setting and there should be a format option option there..let me know if that doenst work for you... Hope this helps
