Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

WHAT IS THE BEST FORMAT (WMA OR MP3) AND BIT RATE FOR THIS MP3 PLAYER?

Can you help? What is the best format to use on this mp3 player, wma or mp3?  It will  be used for excercise, so perfect sound quality is not needed.  My purpose is to add as many songs as I can on this 1 g. player.  I have music in my computer as wav files, but I need to convert them to wma or mp3 before I add them to this player.  Can you also give me a conversion rate to use when I convert them. 
Please consider that I am a new user and I need specifics.  THANK YOU

There are many variables to consider when you are choosing a format.

The bitrate is most important, it effects the sound quality.

Roberto has some files listed for you to compare.

Tip

Undocumented WMA playing mode


Looks there is a previous version of this same player which reproduces WMA but according to current manual which came with player, it supports audio formats MP3, OGG,APE, FLAC,WAV and AAC. WMA is not included I happen to like WMA format so copied some WMA files to music folder. Player hadn't recognized it. So changed wma extension to mp3, just as simple as that.and now I have no problem to listen my wma audio discography. This trick saved me long hours of the file conversion process.
Warning: Don't TAG these renamed mp3 files. They'll get illegiblel

By the way, Earphones have surprisingly good sound quality but they don't fit in my ears! So I replaced the with Samsung earplugs which came with my cell phone

Videos are fine its just music


They only allow MP3 WMA WAV AAC formats check and see if those are in those formats or maybe the file is high quality and the player can't tale that sound quality.

When RCA first came out with the Lyra series the only way to get music onto the device was by using musicmatch jukebox that would convert your mp3 file to mpy before downloading it to the device. But now RCA has come out with a new firm ware update for these mp3 players that improved the players playback quality plus enabled it to use .WMA files. so first go to RCA support http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/select.aspx?u=downloads and find your player and download the firmware upgrade and install to your player its very easy and instructions are at the same site. You can now convert your music to .wma or use the free Real player that will convert mp3 to wma at the kbps that you request before loading it on. If your music is all ready in wma format you can use windows media player to send the files to your player. One last thing the .wma files that you put on your Lyra player need to be at least 128kbps or higher enhanced playback quality of wma files (160 kbps to 256 kbps).

Unknown Format


It sounds like these wma files have DRM protection.

You can still play these songs on your mp3 player, but you must use Windows Media Player to transfer them.

To do this, connect your mp3 player to your computer, then open Windows Media Player. In WMP select "Sync" & you should see your mp3 player in the right-hand pane. Drag & drop your wma files across. It's a slow way to do it, but the only way to transfer wma files with DRM.

Let me know how you get on!
