Question about SanDisk Sansa c240 MP3 Player
When I plug it in i can not see another unit on my PC so i cant add or remove songs... it just doesnt appear to be pluged,, i formated it and now i cant do anything is there any driver I can download to fix it?
My Sandisk c240 v2 Ipod does not have USB option.
My PC was not detecting this ipod.
In "My Computer", I could not find it in 'Devices with Removable Storage' on the list...
When I connected it to my PC (Windows xp), the display on the Sandisk indicated "connected" and "writing". However, I was not able to get the computer to recognize this device.
My problem was uploading mp3 songs from my computer to the player.
I went to a tab "Copy to CD or device"...I saw on the right hand side a list of the 5 default songs that are already in a folder called 'Music' (there were other folders like 'Record', 'Photo' etc)... so I tried to upload the songs under that 'Music' folder.. but when I played my player again, it didn't show the songs (except the 5 defalt ones).
I could not add or remove songs... it just didn't appear to be pluged in.
You can find a manual at this web page:
You can also download the manual from the following URL:
I went to the following site:.
Then I clicked on MSC mode link.
SOLUTION 2 - Connect the device to the PC in MSC mode
View/c200: Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC
Fuze/e200: Go to Settings > System Settings > USB Mode & select MSC
Clip: Go to Settings > USB mode & select MSC
See List of Sansa players with instructions on enabling MSC mode
Then I was taken to the following site:
There I followed the instructions given below:
1. Turn off your player.
2. Slide the Hold switch at the bottom edge of the player towards the REC button, so that the orange indicator is visible.
3. Press and hold the << (rewind) button.
4. With the << button held down, connect the player to the PC.
5. Release the << button once the player is detected
Now, my PC recognizes my Ipod and I am able to copy music files as well as Voice Recoded files from / to ipod.

I just purchased this model for my boyfriend, had a hell of a time trying to figure it out, but after doing numerous google searches, I figured out that you have to place the lock/unlock or "hold" on some models into the lock position, then hold down the rewind button DON'T LET GO UNTIL THE PC RECOGNIZES IT!! It should work. I downloaded all the firmware and stuff I could (not even sure what firmware is... lol... just did it cuz that's what I read to do). Once I did this, it picked it up within 60 secnods and now my PC recognizes it everytime I plug it in. I was up unitl 1am this morning trying to get the darn thing to be recognized... I hope this saves you some sleep! LOL
