Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player

Open Question

My M230 isn't connecting to my Windows 8 laptop. Is there a way I can delete all my songs from the player itself?

When I plug my M230 into the Windows 8 laptop, and click on "Browse files" and then TCNAND0 and then there's only one file there, called RECORDER. On my old Windows 7 (which I don't have anymore) there was more than that "Recorder" file. There was one called "Audible" or something like that, and I had all my songs in there. Now I can't see that file anymore. Is there a way I can remove all the songs from the player itself?

SOURCE: deleting songs

Check the device mode, if the music was transferred in one mode, it is not visible in the other. You can format the device thru My Computer. This will erase everything on the device. My Computer>Device name, right click and select format. Please add to the question if you need more assistance. Best of Luck.

To free space on it all you have to do is delete a few songs.

To delete songs:
Plug it into your computer, launch Windows Media Player and click the "Sync" tab. A list of songs in the player will appear in folders on the right side of the screen. Expand the folder if you need to, then right-click on each song you want to remove from the player and click "Remove From Device". Hope this helps you

Files on player are not listed in wmp or in windows explorer


change the settings of the player to MSC and connect the device to your computer. It will be detected as a removal disc drive. Open it and it should contain the folders in your player. IF you can only see a few folders. Click on Tools-Folder Option - Show hidden files and folders. Then you should see the folders that you have. Right click on the song and choose delete.

Can't delete songs on sansa m230


I actually had this exact same problem with my Sansa m230, and I was running from place to place just looking for an answer; I actually stumbled across it through some related searches here on this site ('reset' specifically), and I tried it out and it worked for me. The Sansa m230 has two USB interface modes, and choosing one will make your system recognize the device differently than if the other is chosen, so songs that were uploaded using the USB setting 'Auto Detect' (which tells the thing to use something called 'MTP' mode) won't be visible again when it's connected using 'MSC' mode, and vice-versa. Simply put: Unplug the little bugger, go into the USB settings, and choose whichever of the two settings isn't already selected, and plug it back in. For the future, I'm going to erase everything from one mode and put it back in through the other mode, just so this doesn't happen again. <.
