Re: Its not plug and playing Sandisk 240m 1g

Hi blackmajik, I just got a Sandisk m250. Windows wouldn't recognize it either until I updated my Windows Media Player to version 11. Now XP sees it just fine and the MP3 player syncs with WMP and accepts and plays music!

1 - Connect the Sansa player to the PC The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full. - If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub. - If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.
If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

Sansa Fuze player will not connect to the computer


The Sansa Fuze information support is on next site:

Sansa Fuze can connect in either MTP or MSC mode.
MTP is Media Transfer Protocol when a software program like Windows
Media Player 10 or higher is installed.
MSC is Mass Storage Class when the player is detected as an external flash drive in "My Computer".

The connection mode can be set to one of the following USB modes:
auto detect:
the player will connect in MTP or MSC mode. It depends on the drivers that are installed for the USB ports for the operating system and extra media software, if the data on the player can be detected. In auto detect
mode, MTP mode detection is only possible when having Windows Media Player 10 or higher installed.
detection on operating system Windows XP SP2 or higher, in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
detection on operating system Windows in the explorer in "My Computer" and on MAC operating system.

Look in the manual on page 35 = page 38 in the pdf file, how to switch the USB mode under System Settings in the player:

Grab the software from Sandisk's website and try again. If that fails, upgrade your XP to SP2 or 3.

My sandisk sansa m240 not working with my windows xp pc

I have XP Media Edition w/SP2 and I see the M240 as a Media Device and NOT a hard disk, AND it has MEDIA and DATA subdirectories only. Media has to go into the MEDIA subdirectory to be seen/read played. Now, on my plain XP system, the M240 it shows up as a disk drive with different layout. There is no MEDIA directory, so putting files into the mass storage device letter will lockup the unit. I haven't tried Media Player 10 solution, but if you have one of these, do NOT put files in it unless you see the MEDIA subdirectory.
