Re: Need help!!!

Okay, timi-boo and JoD3 i believe i have a solution to your problem, on your device, go to the settings section and search for the reset all option. When you select it, everything on your Sansa should be erased.
The same problem occured to mines too. All you have to do is relax and plug it back int o you computer. The reason i implicate that it won't play on the computer is because its already erased so there's no data there, but your computer has memorized the information and just shows it(e.g. cookies) . As long as your computer can tell you theres __ this much memory left(which should be 980/40 sumthing) then everything is perfectly fine. =) Hopefull i helped! ^_^

Does sansa c240 mp3 player need to be turned on before plugging into computer to delete songs?

It doesn't matter. If it's off, it'll turn on automatically when it recognizes the computer connection.

Am unable delete song...they do not show up on my computer either

I have a dffierent mp3 player Colby with a usb and I had the same problem. Try deleting the songs from the device itself. If you go into folder view if you havet hat option and choose the song it says to play or delet, at least that is what mine says. It may take awhile to do it one song at a time, but you should have the option of deleting the songs from the actual mp3 player.

I also had minenot show up, mine was do to deleting some of the software off of the player to make more room for songs. I never used podcasts and other files that came on it, so after I deleted them my songs stopped showing up. I just copy the songs to my mp3 player now, and delete them one by one. Hope this helps you.

My mp3 says that i don't have anymore space, but it only shows 10

I'm not sure what you are asking, but maybe my experience can help you. I was using Windows 2000 (it has no DRM) and the Sansa C240 was displayed in Windows Explorer like a removable drive. I could copy and delete files in Windows Explorer. I switched to Windows XP and when I connected the C240, no files were displayed for it in Windows Explorer. I realized that XP had DRM and all the media files had to be transfered with Windows Media Player. When I opened WMP, it recognized the C240, but it didn't list any of the mp3 files I had already loaded on the C240. WMP asked if I wanted to delete all the media currently on the C240, but I clicked No. After that, WMP worked like the old files didn't exist. It would only delete files that had been copied to the C240 when it was synced.
I would recommend that you use Windows Media Player (or WinAmp) to delete all old media files on the C240 and use the sync button to copy and delete files from the C240. See Windows Media Player help for details.

How do i reset my sansa c240 mp3 player?

If you go under settings there is a reset there. You should also be able to access your songs from your PC when u plug in your USB & could delete songs there. Might also want to look into getting a micro SD if u don't already have one. Good luck!
