Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Device has been disconnected or stopped responding

Im trying to convert 147 songs from my old mp3 player to this one. I created a fold of the songs onto my computer and connected the sansa. I clicked and dragged the folder onto the device and it starts to download the songs. However each time i try this it will stop at a random song and say the device has either stopped responding or has been unplugged but neither of those seem to be the case. I've tried doing this multiple times and i've switched USB ports. I dont know what to do anymore.

I need some instructions on how play it

1. Use Windows Media Player to put songs on your Coby MP3 player. Download songs in MP3, WMA, or OGG format from a legal downloading website. If the file is not one of the previously mentioned files, you must download a converter to convert the file to one of the correct files that can be played on Windows Media Player. Rip a song from a CD by inserting the CD and then click on the option to "Rip" the song to your library. Some Coby MP3 players do not need Windows Media Player to add songs, so be sure to check your user manual to see if there is an even simpler method.
2. Connect your Coby MP3 player to your computer using the USB connector that came with your MP3 player. The player will show up under the "Devices" option on your Window Media Player application.
3. Click on the "Library" option to view all of the songs stored on your Windows Media Player library. You can drag the song to the MP3 player in the "Devices" section, or you can right-click on the song and choose the option to transfer the song. In the pop-up box choose your MP3 from the drop-down menu and then click on the "Transfer" button.
4. Right-click on the MP3 player in Windows Media Player and choose the "Eject" option. Disconnect your MP3 player from your computer and turn it on. The song will now be available on your MP3 player. Press the bottom button to play or pause the song.
5. Add videos and pictures to your Coby MP3 player if it supports those files. The process is similar to transferring audio files. Plug your MP3 player into your computer. Open the photo file on your computer and drag pictures into the player. You can create folders to organize the pictures.

The media device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected

Make sure you're not using the media with another program while you attempt to copy/sync it to your device.

Pretty late response, but meh.

Problems putting ANY videos on Philips GoGear SA6045

Install and run the Media Convertor software from the product CD and follow the on-screen prompts. This will convert the video file to a .WMV file of the correct resolution for the player, and allow you to transfer the video to the player.

If this doesn't work, check that the original video format is supported by the convertor software.

I cant delete songs through my computer

go to the device website and see if they have a firmware update, if not, I would backup your songs and reset/clear all back to factory defaults

New player

Insert old player, double-click my computer, create new folder called "Temp Song Storage", and start dragging music files from old player to new folder. Disconnect old player, connect new player - use Windows Media Player to move songs from Temp Song Storage folder to device.

Stuck in Converting Mode

go to my computer and click on removable disk which is where your mp3 player is at, look through the files ( they are the files you should have on it ) delete them from there.
