I used to be able to load more songs on my 240 player than now. The device indicates that it has over 700MB of free space, but the sync results say that additional songs 'do not fit on the device.' Please...

Reformat the drive, by plugging into pc, check my computer then mass storage, right click, and select format. Do this, but be warned that formatting will erase ALL data.

I would like to know how you can format the memory to eliminate everything. I have connected it to my computer and erased manually all the songs. But when i disconnect it, the songs are still there.

I am not sure how you have tried to erase the songs using your computer, but try erasing the songs this way. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there. Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible. Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete" Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want. Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

How do i erase songs

Simply plug the MP3 Player into your computer, and when it is recognized, open my computer and access the MP3 Player.
Inside it there will be 2 files one that says Audio and the other i think says data, open the Audio file and your songs will be there, then simply delete them, and problemo solved!

Erasing songs

You can try formatting it or erasing all the songs manually - just plug your player in, go to 'my computer,' and click on your device. Then you can erase your songs manually. Hope this helps!

I can't load no more than 60 songs

You have auto-sync enabled - disable it

Disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player - Microsoft's website explains it far better than I can

Open Windows Media Player WITH the mp3 player connected
Highlight Sync, click on the arrow to bring down drop-dow menu
Select Set Up Sync
Uncheck box that says "automatically sync files to device"

Wont put songs on

I would wait for the writing message to go away before disconnecting the player - this is the standard message it will give you when you are transferring songs to the player. If it still says writing after 5 minutes (this is assuming you are not trying to load more than 20 songs at once), then you might have a real problem.

Make sure the files you are trying to load do not have DRM encryption on them, and also make sure they are in mp3 or wma format.

If you have Windows Media Player 11:
Quick Method 1 - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Quick Method 2 - Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:

Cant load songs to my ilo player!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Wont load any songs

Are you unplugging it everytime you put a song in it? if you are then the harddrive in the player will stop working until the whole song is in the player. also it maybe the player has a backup flow that if you keep adding it erases one song at a time. some players do that. dont let the battery run dead either keep it at half way all batteries in players like that dont last long when the batteries is used all the way i hope i helped you out good luck on the player.
