Re: First song only

It sounds like your Windows media player is attempting to read your other storage media...I would recommend you to go to my computer and rename every single removeable disk you have to something else..then you can try again...if that problem persist contact

Sansa M230 not seen in Explorer or Windows Media Player

We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.

Sansa m230 won't be read

I have the fix for this:
if you are using an older unregistered copy of WINDOWS, then your problem is that you need to have a newer copy of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER operating on your system. If you have recently reformatted and lost your newer version of WM Player , then you have lost the drivers necessary to read your SANDISK player and your OS will not show the older MP3 files on your mp3 player in Windows Explorer . You need to download and install a newer version of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER because it is the part of your operating system that contains the newer drivers that your SANDISK requires.
if you are using linux , you will need to find the drivers elsewhere online.

Can't delete songs on sansa m230

I actually had this exact same problem with my Sansa m230, and I was running from place to place just looking for an answer; I actually stumbled across it through some related searches here on this site ('reset' specifically), and I tried it out and it worked for me. The Sansa m230 has two USB interface modes, and choosing one will make your system recognize the device differently than if the other is chosen, so songs that were uploaded using the USB setting 'Auto Detect' (which tells the thing to use something called 'MTP' mode) won't be visible again when it's connected using 'MSC' mode, and vice-versa. Simply put: Unplug the little bugger, go into the USB settings, and choose whichever of the two settings isn't already selected, and plug it back in. For the future, I'm going to erase everything from one mode and put it back in through the other mode, just so this doesn't happen again. <.
