Correct.... the FM Tuner relies on the headphone cable, to act as the FM antenna. Using headphone/earphone will allow the initial lock onto your favourite presets (providing you are in range of your stations). The headphones only operate when external speaker is closed. When speaker is open, headphones will turn off.

Car radio not picking up stations

Check the radio earth, the aerial cable and the point at which the cable reaches the aerial.

If there is no fault, take the radio back to where you bought it.

How do I record FM radio programs and transfer them to my computer?

unfortunately, the voice recorder works only as voice recorder, it cannot play FM and record it at the same time. though you can play fm radio from another device and record it using your SanDisk mp3 player.

To transfer your recordings from your mp3 player, connect your device to your PC.

Open "My computer" from your PC and you'll there "your Sansa Player"

Double-click on "your Sansa Player", then open the "Music" folder, then, open "Recordings" folder.

You'll find all your recordings on that folder.

Radio doesnt work

Make sure the headphones are connected, since they are the antenna. If you are in an indoor area, the potential for picking up stations is greatly reduced.
