Sansa San Disk C240

I purchased this MP3 player only months ago and one day when I was listening to music it just froze and it would not allow me to turn it off. After a while in automatically turned off. Now when I try to turn it on I recieve this white and red capsule looking object??? not sure what this is and there is nothing in my operation manual. I cannot turn my MP3 player on... so I decided to plug it into the computer and when I do the MP3 turns on and allows me to listen to music but it is not registering on my computer thereofore I cannot add or delete files! I removed the battery and replaced it as I thought something may have got lose or something but still no luck. Can anyone help me? Thank you!

The capsule looking thing means it has a low battery. You need to use the USB cord and plug it into your computer for a while to charge it.

"Liscense expired" on sansa express 2G

If you downloaded the songs onto your player free from a mp3 website, there songs most likely were protected by a liscense which only allows you to listen to the for a certain of time (usually a month) as a trial so you will buy the songs to keep it as long as you like. If you do not wish to purchase the songs from that place you are getting them from, you can either go to another free website without a liscense on their songs and get them there or purchase them from another site you like.

MP3 Player is frozen

It sounds like you have a corrupted file. The solution would be to either locate the file that your MP3 Player is freezing on and delete it or format your mp3 players drive.

Music not recognizing

reading from other posts, it's perhaps because you transferred them in one mode (prob MTP?) and are attempting to view thru your PC in different/MSC mode.
