I have a sansa m320, and I out alot of songs on it. I got a new computer, and now the computer dosen't register the songs on it. It recognizes that the sansa is connected via USB, but in the audio folder there is no song. I don't want to reformat because theres song on there I like. BUt its almost out of space. I've tries switching between MSC and autoo something something, but that seems to make no differance. I just want to make room for new music. Please help!
I have the fix for this: if you are using an older unregistered copy of WINDOWS, then your problem is that you need to have a newer copy of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER operating on your system. If you have recently reformatted and lost your newer version of WM Player , then you have lost the drivers necessary to read your SANDISK player and your OS will not show the older MP3 files on your mp3 player in Windows Explorer . You need to download and install a newer version of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER because it is the part of your operating system that contains the newer drivers that your SANDISK requires. if you are using linux , you will need to find the drivers elsewhere online.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Connect the Sansa to your computer using the supplied cable. Open up the operating system's explorer window. The Sansa will show as either a Sansa or a removable hard drive, depending on the USB mode. Either way, open it and you'll see a folder named "MUSIC". Open that. You can either delete entire albums or navigate into them and delete individual tracks.
Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. Then add music this way and see if it is works: 1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3. Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player?s memory are displayed. 4. Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer?s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5. Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.
1. connect it to your computer (through usb) 2. go to "my computer" 3. go to sansa (which should have appeared in "my computer") 4. select the songs you want to delete and click DEL (or drag them into the trash can)
This actually sounds a lot like the problem pointed out in 'can't delete songs on sansa m230', and I'll bet it's got the same solution (you can read my full explanation there, but I'll just give the gist of it here).
The Sansa has two USB settings, 'Auto Detect' and 'MSC'; for some reason songs put on it through MSC aren't visible from the computer if it connects later using 'Auto Detect', and vice-versa. As such, try switching the USB setting from one to the other and see if that helps.
If it doesn't then I don't know, but my guess is that it will. ^_^;
