Sansa m230 No Longer Syncs with Windows Media Player 11

My Sansa m230 used to sync great with WMP 11, but i now get a "tripple beep" "error" message and it no longer syncs. I did nothing to my laptop in the past 3 months, so there is no reason it should no longer sync up. WEB search found no similar problem nor solution.

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the SanDisk website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

Player won't work with vista? can i download software to make it compatible with vista?


Hello,

When you're able to view the menus of the player, look in the manual on page 30 = page 31 of the pdf file for the USB connection mode on your player:
Settings
USB > Auto Detect
> MSC
M200 series manual in pdf format:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/downloads/um/sansa-m200-um.pdf
With Windows Media Player 11 under Vista, the player should be
recognized as a media device in this Microsoft Media Player. Transfers can be made in MTP mode (Media Transfer Protocol) using WMP 11: USB mode should be in Auto Detect.
In Autodetect mode files on the player can also be viewed in the Explorer mode under My Computer, seeing the player as an external flash drive.
In WMP11 use Library and Sync mode for creating playlists and synchronizing music. More about how to use WMP11, see the help items in the player (click on e.g. Library or Sync etc.) or go to the Microsoft site:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/using.mspx


When USB mode is set to MSC mode (Mass Storage Class) the player can only be viewed in the Explorer under My Computer.

When I download music and want to save to Sansa Clip, it saves in "shuffle" mode. The MP3 files are not in the order I want. I can't seem to make it stop doing that.


Sansa Clip user manual:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/CLIP/CLIP_UM_English.pdf

When using Windows Media Player while synchronizing there is an extra option "Shuffle what syncs".
Page 14 of the pdf file [= page 12].

Seeing Sansa Clip in WMP on the left side:
1. Right click on the player
2. Select "Set Up Sync..."
3. Deselect the box "Shuffle what syncs..."

Reset


Format your Sansa through Windows Media Player (WMP). To do, connect Sansa, open WMP, and click the SYNC tab. On the newer version of WMP (and I think the older versions too), there is a little drop menu arrow right below SYNC tab. Click it and you will see your MP3 player on drop menu. Bring pointy thing to it WITHOUT clicking and another sub menu will pop up with option to format. Formatting the player will lose all your data but should reset it.

Sync


The "please sync" refers to songs that are part of a subscription service, like Rhapsody, or Yahoo Music. If you have one of there, you need to connect to your account and update your license(s). If no, the problem is probably with you own music files. See if the following sounds familiar; - You are using some music from your own Cd's. - You used Windows Media Player to copy the cd's to your computer. - You have not manually changed any of the "default" settings in Windows Media Player. If these apply, by default Windows Media Player "copy protects" your music, giving you the "please sync" error message. To resolve this, you will need to change the "copy protect" option from WMP. Tools>Options>Rip Music, un-check the box for "copy protect". Then delete the songs on your player that are from cd's. Then, re-copy them to your PC. Then, re-transfer them to your device. You can add to this question for more assistance. Best of Luck.

Files on player are not listed in wmp or in windows explorer


change the settings of the player to MSC and connect the device to your computer. It will be detected as a removal disc drive. Open it and it should contain the folders in your player. IF you can only see a few folders. Click on Tools-Folder Option - Show hidden files and folders. Then you should see the folders that you have. Right click on the song and choose delete.

Its not plug and playing Sandisk 240m 1g


Hi blackmajik, I just got a Sandisk m250. Windows wouldn't recognize it either until I updated my Windows Media Player to version 11. Now XP sees it just fine and the MP3 player syncs with WMP and accepts and plays music!
