Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player

Still a problem

Mixmaster tried to help but there's more to it than that. I sent the mp3 player to tech place to retrieve the data but they came up empty. Even if I switch it back to auto detect the only thing that comes up is one recording that they put on it that last 2 seconds. Now is it possible that if they accidently formatted it where would I look on my computer ? The folder that they tried to put it in comes up empty. Can simeone please help.

Can't turn on my mp3 player. I have tried to hold the volume buttom but it does not turn on at all.

what type of mp3 player ?

Charge your MP3 player.

The battery might just be dead, in which case letting it charge for a few hours corrects the problem.

Plug the USB data cable into the USB port on the MP3 player and insert the other end into one of the USB ports on your computer.

In a moment, the computer states that it has detected the removable device.

Sometimes the MP3 player needs to update itself, and it can only do so while connected to a computer.

When the MP3 player detects the computer, it attempts to connect to the Internet and retrieve any system updates available for the device.

Replace the battery.

The battery is usually the first part of the MP3 player to go (especially after excessive use). Although you can manually change the battery on most MP3 players, you need to send your

Apple products (iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPhone) into the company so they can change the battery for you.

Purchase a new MP3 player.

If your MP3 player has received any sort ofwater damage, it is not going to turn on at all and there is nothing you can do to fix the issue.

hope this helps

Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mp3 player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing

If the computer does not reocgnize - the player is toast

Sansa e200 resetting problem

The error message means that you have a different version.

Your device is annotated with an R or the word Rhapsody on the back. I have contacted FIXYA to add these models, but my words were unheard.

You will need to contact SanDisk for the Rhapsody version of the files to fix your problem.

Try removing the battery and connecting it to the computer.

If it shows up on the Computer, format it.

To format in My Computer>Device Name (Lyra)>Right Click and select format.

This will erase everything on the device and allow you to start over.

Best of Luck.
