Re: window media player is not recognizing my sansa m230
Refresh drivers - connect player to PC. Right-click My Computer & select Manage. Click Device Manager on left pane. Player will show on right pane as USB Mass Storage device or Portable Device.
If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers: right-click the entry with the error & select Uninstall. On top menu, click Action then select Scan For Hardware Changes.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

We had this problem with our son's Sansa Fuze. The fix was to update Windows Media Player on the computer that wasn't seeing it. So, if you're running different versions of WMP, you might want to try that.
the only thing that you have to do is that when they send you that message don't click yes.
But you also have to go to www.sandisk.com so you can download the software for your sansa.
Hope this helped find the solution for your issue!!
We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.
It sounds like your Windows media player is attempting to read your other storage media...I would recommend you to go to my computer and rename every single removeable disk you have to something else..then you can try again...if that problem persist contact me..email@example.com
I have the fix for this: if you are using an older unregistered copy of WINDOWS, then your problem is that you need to have a newer copy of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER operating on your system. If you have recently reformatted and lost your newer version of WM Player , then you have lost the drivers necessary to read your SANDISK player and your OS will not show the older MP3 files on your mp3 player in Windows Explorer . You need to download and install a newer version of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER because it is the part of your operating system that contains the newer drivers that your SANDISK requires. if you are using linux , you will need to find the drivers elsewhere online.
