Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Did my MP3 break or anything?

I've had my Sansa m240 for over half a year now, and until now, it's worked great. Every time I turn it on, it just says "MTP DB Mismatch Format?" and later it says "Not enough space for Music DB. Please free 8MB." After that it would say I had no files on my MP3, even though I USB connected it to my computer and all the files were still present. So I tried to clear my whole MP3 of files, and moved them into a separate folder on my computer. But even though I have no files left in the MP3, I still have the problem. Anyone have any solutions?

My sandisk mp3 player /FM is not working

you did not explain exactly what is happening with your sansa m240 mp3 player.

have you recently gotten it wet. ie did it fall in the sink, did you wear it in the pouring rain? if you have i have some very bad news for you. My sansa died after it got wet, the radio refuses to turn in it just continuosly climbs through the available frequencies. it takes lots of playing around with it manually some times i lucked out and got a radio station to work if that happened the would all work. sometimes i could not get one station to work on days ike that it never worked at all...

If the m240 flash and chipset gets wet, even if correctly dried they never seem to work right again. at this point it is best to replace the mp3 player. with how cheap many models are at walmart i am advising many people to replace the sansa with a new model perhaps one of the sansa fuse with the micro sd expansion slot

4 gb sansa plus upto 32 gb more on expansion... works great and holds a small ton of music/ browse for your new one now.

If its less than 1 year old, have it replaced. Otherwise, you may want to find someone electronically inclined to replace the internal led light. Best of Luck.

These units are noted for this problem. They cannot be fixed. I bought to for Christmas presents and after 2 days one was stuck on the "Initialization" Screen. Went back to Circuit & exchanged them both because there was a major hardware/firmware upgrade on the new ones. After about a week, same problem. Now I'm just going to return them. You can only return it or throw it away.
