Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Taking books I down loaded at the library off

I recently down loaded some books on my sandisk player at the library, model m240 and I want to know if they have to be taken off  at the same source, I have tried getting them off on my home computer but was unsuccessful. If so I guess this means you can"t take it traveling and stop and down load books at other libraries. We have three sansa mp3 players now and I'm a big fan of audio books and really need to know this answer.          


Thank You       Jill

Re: taking books I down loaded at the library off

It depends on the agreement you have with the library, most in the country allow 3 downloads before it quits, to avoid people passing them around for free. Overdrive is the choice of most libraries now and they all have DRM type of capabilities. The player will play only what it is allowed to by the file.

I have downloaded audiobooks from library, message to synchronize

Maybe you do need to synchronize. Some websites, require you to synchronize the files before you can play them. It is just their way of locking you down to their rules :D.

Computer does not detect my sandisk m240 version 2.1 0A

1) Have you tried removing the software completely

2) Shutting down

3) Reboot and reinstall Sandisk software.

4) reconnect device

You should also go to the website and check for software and driver updates.

If there is no software for this device try plugging it into a different usb port and letting the pc reenumerate it..... if it was in a usb hub, take that out of the loop.

Hope this helps.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription?

Go ahead and hook your mp3 player up to the PC and hit the sync tab in Windows Media Player. Disconnect it safely and try playing one more time. If that fails, remove the audiobooks completely from the Sansa and reload them.

You might also want to double-check Sansa's website - it seems that one of their firmware upgrades related to Audiobook play.

Synchronize my m240

The "please synchronize" error refers to the license for the library audio book you have on your device.

You will need to contact the content providers to troubleshoot the license issue.

Best of Luck.

Problem with my MP3 player...

I am having the same issue. I loaded my M240 with music, then umpluged it from the USB cable. It didn't do the "building library" thing like it always does, and now when i turn it on it just loops from the "Sandisk" startup screen to the "Sansa initiallizing" screen. The same as you, when i connect it to the pc it isn't even recongnized and the player loops the "initiallizing" screen again. I put a request in to Sandisk last night, so i might have a solution for us later today.
