    Still cannot format! The player stopped playing songs and started to act weird, so my daughter tried to delete everything and then start over. It said it deleted everything, and no songs show in explorer, but it says it is full. I have tried to format in windows explorer, disk management in msc mode and in windows media player in mtp mode. Nothing works. It always says the windows is unable to complete format. Please help!

This error message may largely be due to the corrupted Music Database file that the Sansa M240 creates to maintain an information pool on the music files downloaded to it. Normally, if you are unable to completely format the player in Windows Explorer, there are still 2 other (and actually, more recommended) options that you have: (1) Switching the M240 to MSC mode and formatting in "Disk Management". You can get to this window by right-clicking the "My Computer" icon and selecting "Manage". Make sure that you use the FAT file system to optimize the 1GB memory (2) Switching the M240 to MTP mode and formatting the player in Windows Media Player 10 or version 11. The mode of the M240 can be changed by accessing the menu and going to "Settings", then choosing "USB" In general, formatting the player in "Disk Management" is more effective than formatting it in Windows Explorer. Also, it would be a good idea to upgrade the player's firmware to the latest version via the SanDisk website: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 I hope this helps. The M240 is a great player.

    message for Noggin:

    Thanks a lot for your kind comments. I would love nothing more than to share what I know about Sansa players (and believe me, I've had quite a few bouts with the players' issues lol).

    I'm also learning a lot from this site, with the other products that i currently own. Lookin forward to getting some help from you in the future.

    Thanks

Message for Syd: at last there is someone out there who likes and seems to understand Sansa players - hope we see more of you on the site - check the listings if you haven't yet - you'll see that the site is a bit swamped with sandisk player problems - Thanks, Noggin :) (p.s. apologies Ranga - i had to jump on your problem to get in contact with Syd)

Error message: Not enough space for music DB. Please free 4MB.


Hi I have just bought a Sandisk Sansa M250, we loaded som music on it and it lasted 2 hours, then it the message came "Not enough space for music DB please free 8 MB". I couldnt even go in to the menu. I contakted Sandisk.com and 24 hours after they came up with an answer. If it's currently frozen, hold down the power button for 20 seconds in order to soft reset it. Let's try to format the player (THIS WILL ERASE ALL FILES FROM THE PLAYER). Plug it into your computer, then open My Computer, right-click the drive associated with the player, and choose Format. It may give you a choice of file system, if so, choose FAT (it may only let you choose FAT32, which is fine). Now click on Start and it should format the player. If not already done, please also update the firmware from this link: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1368 The 20 seconds on the power button didnt work, but the formation did. Hope this helps. //Cadmann Please bear with my english
