How i do i delete existing audio recordings, or at least tape over the existing ones?


You can download the entire manual here:
Sansa M240
The section regarding your query is pasted below:
Deleting Music Files On Your Sansa MP3 Player

When your player is connected to your computer with the USBconnector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files onyour player. Your player will appear as Sansa m230 or m240. Follow these steps:
Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connectthe USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. Theplayer will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer. (Can't findthe USB Port on your player? See The Basic Controls.)
Delete your music files to the player with software tools likeRhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client.
To use the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Clientsoftware to delete files to your player please refer to the Windows MediaPlayer, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client help file.

NOTE: While you canstore and organize your audio files on your player using folders with names youselect, your player will ignore folders and names. Instead, your Sansa playerwill extract information from each audio file so that you can use the softwaremenu to navigate your files by artist, album title, song title, and otheruseful criteria.

Sansa m240 - deleted all songs - tried to install new ones- won't take-says full


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.

Can't delete songs


Go to Windows Media Player under the Sync tab, over on the far left should be the name of the player, click on it and find the name of the song by album title, artist, or whatever, click on the title and click delete and you should be able to delete any song you like without deleting them all

You can connect the device to your computer and manage it thru "My Computer. Open My Computer, then open the device (i.e. Sansa m240). Inside there is a Music folder, you can delete them from here. You can also drag songs here to transfer to the player. If you are not able to see the "music" folder, you may need to enable "Hidden Files and Folders" on your computer. Best of Luck.
