Hi,
1. Make sure you Windows Media Player 11 (Goto Help --> About WMP --> v??)
2. If you do not have it, install it from this location: http://www.microsoft.com/mediaplayer   3. Change the Mode on Device: Go into Menu --> Settings --> USB Mode:Auto Detect/MTP/MSC   4. Select MSC and it should work. If it does not try Powercycling your device (turn it off and then turn it on).  5. Try other modes as well. 

Keep the device in AutoDetect Mode and follow the instructions below:

i. Connect your Device
ii. Right click on My Computer and select Manage
iii. Select Device Manager
iv. At the right hand side look out for Portable devices and click on the + symbol to display your device
v. Right Click on the device and select Update Drivers
vi. Select 'No, not at this time' and click Next
vii. Select 'Install from a list or specific location' and then click Next
viii. Select 'Don't search, I'll choose the driver to install' and then click Next
ix. Select 'MTP Device' and then click Next. This should install the device and then should be ready for use

Now you should be able to view all the files on the device in WMP.

This information fixed the problem, but deleting all the songs was crazy. I just wrote down the ones I wanted to keep and am satisfied with that. TY

I use Windows Media Player to delete all the songs as well. If you want to start over with an empty player go to the Sync Menu and select the media player then select format. It will delete everything so you can start over from scratch. I had to do this when my reset key did not work on my zen Vplus.

I don't believe you can delete songs from the m240 itself; you need to plug it into a computer.
I use Windows Media Player (v11). When I plug my m240 into the computer and select the "Sync" tab in WMP, the m240 is shown in the tree view in the left-hand panel, and I can then select it to list the songs. In this list, I then select the ones I want to delete, and press the "Delete" key, or right-click and select "Delete".

500 songs, all gone but wont allow other downloads, "too full"


Re: 500 songs, all gone but wont allow other downloads, "to full"

Use settings "format" on mp3 player. This will delete any hidden files. If you download in one format (say like Ubuntu) and delete them under another (say Windows), files can remain in *.trash which is hidden. To avoid this in the future, try deleting with shift+del as it will bypass the trash folder.

Shuffle mix max


That's not actually how you delete songs from the player. When you connect it to your computer you will see a new removable disk called Mix Max in your My Computer icon or in Computer if you have Vista. Open up that Mix Max icon and then you can highlight and delete only the songs you don't want or all of them.
