Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Does not show any files

My player does not show any MP3 files when connected to computer (it has many), and I can't add any new file. What do I do? Also, when connected to USB, it's not recognized as a drive. I tried to add a letter using Computer management, but it does not appear there. Thanks!

One of the reasons might be a filesystem panic. Run a chkdsk /F/X/R in a dosbox on a windows machine, it will take some time and some files might be lost but the filesystem will be fixed.

How do i clear music to add new music


Connect the MP3 player to your computer using the USB cable.
The computer will see this as an external drive or removable disk.
Click on this MP3 device and open the folder where the MP3 music files are located, then click to highlight the music files you want to delete and then press the DEL (delete) key to remove them from the MP3 player. This is the same procedure in deleting files from your computer's hard disk.
