Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player
If it has an eternal battery that gets charged it sounds like the battery has lived its last life and you need to get a new battery for it. Than it should work fine.

Try a soft reset by holding the power button for 10 seconds.
if that doesn't do it, your gonna have to try a full reset.
Starting with the power OFF (touch the center button to see ifthere's any activity), slide the power switch DOWN to the HOLDposition, exposing the wee orange dot.
On your PC, open a Windows Explorer window (My Computer).
Holdthe << rewind button of the scroll wheel down, while plugging it in to your computer. Keep that button held downuntil it pops up on the PC. Look for the"Found New Hardware" balloon in the system tray.
If it pops up, then try re-partitioning it
Go to this thread, and download a copy of the 1.01.11 firmware ( http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board/message?board.id=sansafuse&thread.id=210) .
Downloadand install a new copy of the firmware as shown in that thread. BeSURE to unzip the file prior to proceeding. The extracted file will be15,360 Kbytes, named fuzea.bin. Shrink the WindowsExplorer window a wee bit, so that you can easily drag and drop thefuzea.bin binary file into the root directory of the Fuze. This isrepresented by the open Windows Explorer window; don't drop the fileinto any of the visible folders, but into the main box, representingthe root directory.
Once that's done, the display will gofrom "writing" to "connected" on the Fuze, you can disconnect thedevice. What we're looking for is the message "firmware upgrade inprogress" on the device.
Power up the Fuze, and select your language if that screen in active. Then format the device by using the Fuze's settings mode.
Also, remove the memory card if you have one in before all of this just to be safe.
Let me know if this works.

It depends. What's charging it?
If it's connected to a computer's USB port, then no, you can't listen to it.
If it's connected to a USB charger, such as you might find for cell phones, then yes, you can listen to it.

You need to use the supplied Sansa Media Convertero to convert videos (and photos) to a format the Sansa can handle.
