    I download Audible books to mine and it did it well until recently. All of a sudden when I try to download a book, Audible.com tells me my device isn't connected to my computer which it is or that my device is busy which it isn't. I can't seem to figure out this problem.

In the settings menu on the mp3 player you will see a usb setting (hopefully) you have to change the settings in there and it should work hopefully

My sandisk sansa m240 not working with my windows xp pc


I have XP Media Edition w/SP2 and I see the M240 as a Media Device and NOT a hard disk, AND it has MEDIA and DATA subdirectories only. Media has to go into the MEDIA subdirectory to be seen/read played. Now, on my plain XP system, the M240 it shows up as a disk drive with different layout. There is no MEDIA directory, so putting files into the mass storage device letter will lockup the unit. I haven't tried Media Player 10 solution, but if you have one of these, do NOT put files in it unless you see the MEDIA subdirectory.

Not enough memory space for music db


Your M240 may have encountered a corruption in its Music Database, and may be corrected by formatting and updating the firmware. Try this: Manually switch the player to MSC mode and format through "Disk Management". Here are the steps: Step 1: Locate the "Hold" switch on the side of the M240 and enable it (you should see an "orange-colored" surface when it's enabled) Step 2: Plug the M240 to your computer (recommended Operating System is Windows XP and above) and check Windows Explorer if the player is detected as a "Removable Drive" Step 3: Open "Disk Management" by right-clicking on the "My Computer" icon, then selecting "Manage" Step 4: Your "Disk Management" window should be divided into 2 panes. On the left pane, click on "Disk Management" Step 5: On the upper right pane of "Disk Management", you should find the drive letter corresponding to your Sansa M240. The lower section also contains the drive # pertaining to your M240. Right-click on either drive letters pertaining to the M240 and select "Format". Follow the on-screen prompts. Make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox remains un-checked. Step 6: In general, Disk Management is more the effective tool for formatting your M240 and assuming the format processing completed without any errors, proceed to updating the firmware of your player. Step 7: Use this link to download the Sansa Firmware updater: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 Save this file to your Desktop and run it while your M240 is still plugged in to your PC. Follow the on-screen prompts. Step 8: "Safely remove" your M240 from your PC and -- with a fresh battery -- power on your player. It should boot up normally. I hope this works. The M240 is a great player

Thank you for contacting SanDisk Technical Support. It is our goal to make sure you have all the resources you need to get the most from your product through your recent inquiry into our product line. We do apologize for any kind inconvenience this issue is causing you. For verification, does your computer have Windows XP as its operating system? This issue may be due to some sort of corruption on the Sansa m240 itself. We should try formatting the Sansa m240 as a possible solution. Caution: Formatting will erase all information on the Sansa mp3 player. Please be sure to have a back up of all the information before proceeding. If your Sansa m240 is currently frozen, please remove the battery (to unfreeze it), then put it back in, and connect it to your Windows XP computer. Since you cannot access your Sansa m240 to convert to MSC mode, please have the ?HOLD? button ?ON? so that you can have your Sansa m240 in MSC mode before plugging to your computer. To format the Sansa m240 on your PC, let us connect the Sansa m240 to your computer on an USB port preferably located near the power hub or to an external self powered USB hub, go to ?My Computer?, single right click on the ?Removable Disk? associated with your Sansa m240, and select ?Format?. Let us please make sure that, under FILE SYSTEM, we change FAT to FAT32, and then single left click ?Start?. This will erase all data off the Sansa m240 and correct errors on it, which should make the Sansa m240 usable again. We also recommend formatting the Sansa m240 another way. Please be advised again that formatting will erase all data. Please right click on my computer and select ?Manage?. When ?Computer Management? comes up, please click on ?Disk Management? on the left hand side. After clicking on ?Disk Management? you should now have a list of drives in the right side panel. On the right, look for the Sansa m240, it may show up as Disk 1, 2, 3? Removable Disk. Right click on the larger "Volume" rectangular icon to the right of the Removable disk and select ?Format? choosing FAT32. If you do not have the format option, please select "New Partition" and just keep clicking next through the Wizard that appears. After formatting the Sansa m240, please do try your Sansa m240. If applicable, please go the link below to download the firmware update for your Sansa m240. The link is: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1326 or http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 If formatting and firmware update in your computer is not possible, please do try the process again on another Windows XP computer. NOTE: Please be aware that formatting is a normal and necessary method of drive maintenance and repair, and simply NOT formatting periodically can cause a drive to slip into failure due to the backup, and clutter of residual data.
