Question about SanDisk Sansa c240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Firmware shmeremware!!!!! Updated firmware as suggested by sansa, now device refuses to download off of my subscription service, error msg mentions "cannot access secure clock"  Refreshed device through wmp, works there. Other devices work fine in Rhapsody. Device will not transfer even on another computer. Updated all software. Stupid Sansa support with their canned advice is no help yet. How about some real people? Have had no problems until this firmware update.

My sansa e260 goes black after showing sandisk start up screen and does the same when plugged into a pc. it starts to refresh database and then the screen goes black.


Hi there

When you say the screen goes black even after disconnecting the device from computer it could be an issue with the firmware.
It might need to have updated firmware. To get the updated firmware please go www.sandisk.com.

Where you can get the latest firmware for your model.
*** Make sure when you update the firmware keep the device in MSC mode.

Here is the link for updating the firmware:
