Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Formatting issue I found a solution to formatting the player. There is a patch you can download from Sandisk that will format your player for you and even give you instructions through the process. My problem is my computer recognizes another source when I plug the player into a USB port, but it doesn't find the player under My Computer. Any suggestions?

Does the device show connected? If so check the device manager for any red or yellow errors. If there are errors, right click on the device and select un-install. Disconnect the device from the computer, wait a few seconds and reconnect. The device should re-install the drivers and device should be recognized. Best of Luck.

    About format


    It looks like it plays a format called MJPEG at 14 fps. The SanDisk Media Converter comes with it, and can convert most popular formats to play on the e250.

    Answer found by digging through Cnet's review.

    You may need to format, formatting should fix this problem instead of just deleting the songs.

    To format follow these simple steps below:

    First go to "My Computer" - now look for your mp3 player usually named under for example "Removable Disk F", when you've found it "Right-Click" on it then click on "Format", when format is complete try after that.

    Any further problems leave a comment on this page and i will get back to you.

    Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

    It won't start now!


    Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool. - Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds) - Slide the hold switch into "hold" position. - Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer. Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted. Best of Luck.

    Nothing will show up ...


    first connect your player and after windows has found it open your 'my computer' folder. if you see the player listed as a drive, right click on it and then click format. You will lose all data/songs but you can always reload them later from your music library. Make sure you use FAT format if windows gives you the option. after format is complete, disconnect the player and it should reboot. After that, you may need to go to the sandisk website and upgrade the firmware. Don't try reformatting from the website. it never seems to work.
