Question about SanDisk Sansa c140 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Screen is blank on my Sansa c140

Hi I can see the icons for music, radio, microphone etc. but there is not text to read what is going on. When I hook it up to the computer, there is not text on the mp3 player, only a white screen. I would like to format the player, but it does not show up in "My Computer" I tried removing the battery for hours, someone suggested that hold the menu button down for 30 seconds but it still does not work. Any thoughts? Thanks

How do you take music off your mp3 player


Hello,

The Sansa c140 can be operated in MSC and MTP mode for transferring and deleting music files.
See also setting USB mode for autodetect or MSC mode on page 16 of the manual: link to the Sansa c100 series manual.

  • For deleting files a connection to a computer has to be made in either MSC or MTP mode, see page 10 of the manual.

MSC mode means that a computer will see the player as a removable disk when connected.
It's like exploring the computer detecting the player as an external memory, showing up as a drive letter with about 1 GB of memory.
Before disconnecting the player, always safely remove hardware, the icon in the bottom taskbar on the right.

MTP mode means that a computer has software installed like Windows Media Player 10 and in this software, when started, the player is being recognized as Sansa c140.
Before disconnecting the player, wait for the message that it is allowed to disconnect the device.

How to use Windows Media Player 10 ? See the site of Microsoft:

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

A mtp device


To put songs on the device while it's in MTP mode, you need a music program (Rhapsody, WMP, etc... I use Media Monkey which is freeware).

If you want to access the player as a standard usb storage device, go into the player's menu, and under settings->USB, change it to MSC mode.

I had the same problem, first on the mp3 player under settings change the USB setting to MSC. Then plug the mp3 player back into the computer. Open the My Computer icon, right click on the SANSA C140 icon and click format. Make sure it's Fat32 and Quick Format is Not selected. Then click format. This will take a few minutes. When it's done your mp3 player will be just like a usb drive; you're files will be read normally.

* if it's a voice recording you're trying to find, look under music and scroll down to Recordings. If it's not there then perform the above format.

Also it only reads mp3s and pictures (gifs, jpgs). Unfortunately the c140 doesn't play videos :(
