Sure. Just plug it in. Go to "My computer" RIGHT click on the sansa m240 icon and choose FORMAT. Let me know if this worked. (and don't forget to rate my solution). Best, D.

I accidently went to settings and went to format and presses yes and it deleted everything i had. It happened like 6 months ago. Over the 6 months i have started over with putting songs on it and...

Unfortunately, you have likely overwritten the old songs by copying new songs.

One free product worth trying is Recuva (

Download and install Recuva, plug the mp3 player into your computer, and see what can be recovered. Even if you can see some of your old songs they might be corrupted so make sure to listen to them.

I hope this has been informative.

My Sansa Clip 2GB MP3 player won't let me add any more songs to it, even though there's 1.26 GB still available. I don't want to reformat the player, cuz that'll delete the songs I already have on there. ...

Hi there..

When you say having difficulty in adding the songs in CLIP, though you have enough space. I'd kindly request you to check for the number of songs that you have added.

Because when you add as MP3 player by default its bit rate is 128kbps so you can add up to 500 songs only. Kindly have a check on it.

I have given the number of songs that can be added with related to size of MP3 player..

Size of the player :512MB 1GB 2GB 4GB 8GB 16GB 32GB
Number of songs : 125 250 500 1000 2000 4000 8000

Kindly revert if any clarifications....

Deleted songs then no connection to computer

I still don't know why the Sansa Clip deleted my songs, but I was able to get it connected to my computer after switching the USB Mode (In the settings selection) to a different setting. I don't understand how or why it worked, it just did. (My computer runs on Windows XP so I don't know if this solution will work on other computers)

Deleteing songs

You can delete them thru My Computer. Double click on the Sansa (m200), inside you will see a Music Folder. Inside is your individual tracks, separated by album names. You can add or delete all music from here. Best of Luck.
