Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged.
Try a different USB port.

If that fails:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - 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.
Firmware Upgrade- 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: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Put on your ipod and put them on your media player by sync. Itunes can work on the ipod so you use itunes on your ipod and get them.

How to I start the c240 up it My computer doesnt


On Windows XP, when you open My Computer, the Sansa C240 shows up at the bottom, under "Other". Because of DRM restrictions, you cannot copy media files to the C240 using Windows Explorer. You have to use Windows Media Player to sync playlists to the C240 (WinAmp can do it also).
I also suggest that you check out RockBox. It's an alternative operating system for portable media players and they have a version for the Sansa C240. It will give you some additional functionality.
As far as I can tell, to copy files to the microSD card (if you're using one) you have to use a media card reader, then insert the card into the C240.

Why did my Mp3 Player Add/Delete a File I Didn't Want? Manual vs. Automatic...


Why did my Mp3 Player Add/Delete a File I Didn't Want? Manual vs. Automatic Synchronization in Windows Media Player

by Tha Mp3 Doctor

The difference between manual and automatic synchronization is very important. If you’re ever wondering why you computer added files to your device when you didn’t want it to, or why it deleted files unexpectedly, then there is a good chance that you have automatic synchronization activated. Manual synchronization allows you to only add/delete only those files that you want to keep or discard.

To disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Run the mouse cursor over the Sync tab – a little black arrow should appear under the word “Sync”

4. Click on the little arrow and a drop-down menu should appear

5. Select “Set Up Sync” in the drop-down menu

6. Uncheck the box that says “Sync this device automatically”

There are many good outside websites out there – many with videos on how to do everything we have described in these pages. Hopefully, this will give many of you a start into the wonderful world of music transfer through mp3 players and Windows Media Player.

My mp3 says that i don't have anymore space, but it only shows 10


I'm not sure what you are asking, but maybe my experience can help you. I was using Windows 2000 (it has no DRM) and the Sansa C240 was displayed in Windows Explorer like a removable drive. I could copy and delete files in Windows Explorer. I switched to Windows XP and when I connected the C240, no files were displayed for it in Windows Explorer. I realized that XP had DRM and all the media files had to be transfered with Windows Media Player. When I opened WMP, it recognized the C240, but it didn't list any of the mp3 files I had already loaded on the C240. WMP asked if I wanted to delete all the media currently on the C240, but I clicked No. After that, WMP worked like the old files didn't exist. It would only delete files that had been copied to the C240 when it was synced.
I would recommend that you use Windows Media Player (or WinAmp) to delete all old media files on the C240 and use the sync button to copy and delete files from the C240. See Windows Media Player help for details.

Can not view my music files on my laptop (but can on my desktop)


Get the latest firmware upgrade - this player wasn't originally designed with WMP 11 in mind. Also, make sure the laptop has the folders "My Documents" and "My Music" on it - this is primarily where WMP reads from.

Sansa c240 and memory card


When you look at the media player (i assume you're using Windows Media?) you should see a pane on the right side. In blue font near the top it should say "Next Device." Click that and it should bring up the SD card to sync to it...Also, you could get an SD reader and do it that way...
