Re: M230

Try deleting files to get at least 4mb of free space. Unplug any speakers or headpones (some speakers cause it to shut down when played at higher volume levels, probably due to impedence incompatibilities). Make certain you have an absolutely fresh battery in it. When it comes on after being connected to a usb port or after a battery has been replaced it uses probably more battery energy during its database initialization than at any other time. Even if the battery meter reads full, the draw might be more than a used battery can deliver. Once it does show you the regular song screen shut it down so it can save the initialization results.

To free space on it all you have to do is delete a few songs.

To delete songs:
Plug it into your computer, launch Windows Media Player and click the "Sync" tab. A list of songs in the player will appear in folders on the right side of the screen. Expand the folder if you need to, then right-click on each song you want to remove from the player and click "Remove From Device". Hope this helps you

My sansa m230 all messed up i need help?

Hi, Try formating the sansa first. You can do so by clicking on "My computer" and then right click on the sansa drive and "Format". It will help in case the 20th song was in an invalid format. Let me know if it helped. D.
