Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player
Am using the sandisk m240 mp3 player. It seems several people have the same problem of the player being stuck on the "sandisk initializing" screen. Mine is doing the same thing and I can't even get the computer to recognize it. It shows nothing, like it hasn't been plugged in. I put in new batteries, it isn't that and there doesn't seem to be many suggestions??? help
Yeah, I am also experiencing this. I guess some people answering don't understand the issue here, or at least not mine. when I turn mine on when it is not plugged into the usb, it gets stuck at the "Sandisk initializing" screen, then the "Sansa m240 1.0GB" screen, and repeats itself. I so not know the solution, but I thought I would clarify for those of you who are not comprehending the issue.

I removed one screw and took it apart. I then removed a chip (my guess it's the flash chip), put the battery between the contacts, tried to turn it on and nothing happend. Plugged chip back in, put the battery between the contacts again and it worked!

That is not helpful when the computer doesn't even see your MP3 Player

To those that are having problems with the MP3 player not being
recognized. With Windows XP there is a little Icon on your Systems Tray
that is called the "Safely Remove Harware Icon". Not using this Icon
when unpluging MP3''s or zip drives can cause your PC to no longer
recognize it. Toshiba Satellite laptops are known for this, others
probably have the same problem. The solution here is to install the
latest update of the ACPI Flash Bios for the Toshiba Satellite
computer. Maybe this is also the problem with other PCs. To prevent
these problems allways click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon before
removing the MP3 player or any USB flash drive
1 With your m240 set to MSC and connected, go to "My Computer" and "right click" on the "Sansa m240" icon and select "Properties"
2 In that window, select the "Hardware" tab
4. In that "All Disk Drives" window, highlight the "Sansa m240" drive and select "Properties" (at the bottom)
5. In that window, select "Policies"
6. And there, set it to " Optimize for Quick Removal" and click OK and OK again

Folks: Turn ON your Sandisk m240 MP3 Player and go to the 'Menu' and select 'Settings', then go to 'USB' and select 'MSC'. After that, connect the m240 to your computer and it'll recognize your Sandisk m240.
