are you able to format the player while in msc mode?
right-click on it while in my computer and select the format option, make sure your selecting your mp3 as this will delete all the files off the device. It if says failed to format, try doing it thorugh disk management. To get there you can right-click on my computer and select manage from the drop down menu. From here you will see disk management on the left hand side. Then a larger rectangular box with the drive letter that represents your player, you can right click on this and select format.
Or just try a different computer, if its the same everywhere then youll probably have to end up emailing sandisk, stating everything you tried. They will probably ask you to do a couple more things, but if you keep at it, youll end up with an RMA*.
The Insignia NS-DA2G needs to be placed in File & Folder mode, and you'll need to have your mac show you all files on the device. Macs will create a smaller file that starts with "._" that contain very little information, but can cause problems with Windows based or Windows preferred devices. These files are not ignored by the PC or certain Windows optomized devices. You should erase these files for the unit to perform normally.
If you are unable to delete these files, you can re-format the device to FAT-32 and that will erase all information on the device. You shouls also hit the reset button (located next to the "HOLD" switch) for about 5-10 seconds to clear the internal settings.
This error message may largely be due to the corrupted Music Database file that the Sansa M240 creates to maintain an information pool on the music files downloaded to it.
Normally, if you are unable to completely format the player in Windows Explorer, there are still 2 other (and actually, more recommended) options that you have:
(1) Switching the M240 to MSC mode and formatting in "Disk Management". You can get to this window by right-clicking the "My Computer" icon and selecting "Manage". Make sure that you use the FAT file system to optimize the 1GB memory
(2) Switching the M240 to MTP mode and formatting the player in Windows Media Player 10 or version 11.
The mode of the M240 can be changed by accessing the menu and going to "Settings", then choosing "USB"
In general, formatting the player in "Disk Management" is more effective than formatting it in Windows Explorer.
Also, it would be a good idea to upgrade the player's firmware to the latest version via the SanDisk website:
I hope this helps. The M240 is a great player.
I had the same problem In My Sandisk Sansa, and the way I fixed it is the following:
Plug your player in your computer in MSC mode (On your player, go to settings, then USB and choose MSC)
Then in "my computer", right-click on the player icon and go to "properties".
In "properties" go to "tools" and in the first option, which is "error checking", click on "check now".
In check disk options, check both "automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recorevy of ba sectors".
It's going to take a few minutes (phase 1 and phase 2 will be displayed). Wait until it is complete.
When it is done, close the "properties" window and right-click on the icon of the player and click on "format"!
It should say format complete and the player should be then be ready to synchronize files again!
Now Enjoy That
