Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Deleting unwanted songs

I have a Sansa M240 mp3 player. My son gave me this player and put some songs on it; I want to delete them, but they do not show up on the computer when I connect the player. I have already transferred songs of my own & those show up okay and I can delete them if I want. No matter what I do, though, even through Windows Explorer, it does not show all the songs. But when I use the player, those songs (the ones that were put on before I got the player) are there & play, but I cannot delete them.

    Allelua! I "accidentally" figured it out. With nothing really to lose, since I could sync music again, I used the options, in the advanced mode, to "restore to factory settings"...whatever that did, I don't know, but I know could see "ALL" the music on the player, and was able to successfully delete the unwanted music through Windowns Explorer. I then went to Windows Media Player, and sync-ed the rest of the music I wanted. Great!



    Thanks,

    Bonnie

The Sansa M200 series devices do not allow deletion of downloaded content directly from the device. You must connect he device to PC/Mac via USB to delete downloaded content. You will also need to use media software such as Windows Media Player, Rhapsody, iTunes, etc.. to see all of the music content on the player to be able to delete the songs you don't want. (i.e. just viewing the device in Windows Explorer might not show everything that is on he player.)

I want to download certain songs to my new Ipod shuffle. I do not want to download everthing Is there a way to choose which songs you want to put on your ipod?


The only songs you can download have to come from the iTunes store. Set up an account with a credit card, and you can order single songs, albums or videos, plus some free content. Some albums are sold as whole albums, but that is not the norm.

If you have music on your computer, you can download iTunes to it, and try and drag tracks by having the iTunes window open to your iPod, and the other pane open to your music. Highlight and Right Click Drag - Copy here.

The legit way is to pay Apple $38 to allow you to put non iTunes music on their device.

How do I delete music off of a coby mp829 player


I don't have this particular device. Although some players will let you delete files from the device alone, some won't. But an mp3 player should show up on your desktop computer as an external memory storage device when connected via USB. You can open it and delete music files by dragging to trash, or by right-clicking and selecting Delete. (Windows, but probably similar on Mac).

How to reset my combination lock number on ipod A1236


Hi William
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, you can unlock the Ipod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one Ipod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock Ipod using either (the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs). . . you can restore your ipod to factory settings using ipod Updater.
Please note that this will erase all data on your ipod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your ipod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your Ipod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted.
Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your ipod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your ipod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the Ipod, which will erase all music and data.
