Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Lost/No Files It tells me that there are no files when I turn it on and when plug it up to my computer. But when I go into properties, I see that there is 673 of used space and 300 mb of free space. So I know all 140+ songs are still in the mp3 player... somewhere. Help me, please.

Re: Lost/No Files

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 work my eclipse mp3 player? I plugged in the usb cord to the computer from the mp3 player and it will not turn on or charge.

Your device may be somehow locked.
You may have downloaded the files as read only.
To remove them as read only files, you must do the following.
1.Right click on the file or files, then go to properties, uncheck the read only box.

Sansa e260 memory card transfer issue

Attention all. To temporarily fix this, make sure you're in MSC mode, plug the mp3 into a computer and then right-click on the memory-card icon (E,F,G,H or whatever drive it tells you it is) and left-click Properties. Then run a check/fix function on it, and that should sort it out so that you can at least PLAY the music, though I still need to sort out the files because it's double-listed loads of them. Oh well... hope that helps.

Cannot get it to play with the earphones...loaded cd but can't find it until i plug into the computer NOFILE on the screen of MP3

I had this same problem. It turned out that I had MP4A files rather than MP3 files. Connect to PC and open the GPX as a folder and check properties for the files or if Vista the file type should show over the files. I converted the MP4a files to MP3 using a program called Switch.

There may be other problems that result in Nofile message but check out the file type and see if that could be the problem.

Good Luck!

Mp3 Files not shown on file list

Hello, i had this problem as well. I deleted the files and ran an MP3 convertor program. For some reason, not all MP3 files appear to be compatible with the Sansa. Try downloading Switch from which is freeware and is a very small and useful program. I tried this with invisible tracks and tracks that appear as "bad track" as well.

Hope this helps.
