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.)

Deleteing songs


Use Windows Media Player - you must delete them from the computer by selecting the mp3 player - you cannot delete them from the Mp3 player itself.

Can't delete songs


Go to Windows Media Player under the Sync tab, over on the far left should be the name of the player, click on it and find the name of the song by album title, artist, or whatever, click on the title and click delete and you should be able to delete any song you like without deleting them all

Can't delete songs


The sansa has two USB modes. If you load tracks in one mode you have to be in the same mode to see them in explorer and also be able to delete them. Took me ages to figure this out. From the main menu, go to Settings then select USB and toggle between "MSC" and "Auto Detect". You should then be able to see the hidden tracks. I have firmware 2.2.5A installed so you might want to check that too.

I now only use the Sansa in MSC mode as it seems to crash Winamp if I use it in Autodetect.
