Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Hidden file after the player kisses the ground :(

Hello!

A BIG thankyou for your time and expertise.

I accidentally dropped my Sansa m240 and, naturally, the file that was recording at the time stopped. My problem is that when I turned the machine back on, the file (VORC002) seems to have disappeared. When I record a new file, I noticed that it has taken the same title as the one which vanished I am grateful for any advice...I really hope that I'll be able to retrieve the information. Is it possible that the data may be sitting on the player still? I used a program which reveals lost and deleted files to try to find it but, unfortunately, no joy :(

Thanks in anticipation,
Sally

There are several songs that are on the m240 that are not showing when you look at it's files - how are these hidden?


If you added songs to the device in MSC mode, then switch to MTP mode, you will not be able to see the songs added in MSC mode and vice versa, though the space used on the player will still reflect their presence. Switching modes should make the files show up. For example, switching from MSC to MTP mode or vice versa.

For older players - e200v1, c200v1, c100, m200 - the files become hidden files if the modes are switched. An easy workaround is to edit the folder options to show hidden files.

STEP 1 - Edit the folder options of the computer to show the hidden files

Windows XP:
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Under the Tools menu, select Folder options, then click the View tab.
3. Under Hidden files and folders option, select Show hidden files and folders.
4. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box.
5. Click Apply, then click OK.

Windows Vista:
1. Double-click Computer.
2. Click the Organize button on the upper left corner.
3. Click Folder and search options.
4. Click the View tab and select Show hidden files and folders.
5. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files check box.
6. Click Apply, then click OK.


SOLUTION 2 - Perform a Check Disk.

STEP 1 - Switch to MSC mode
1. On your Sansa player, switch the USB mode to MSC.
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.

STEP 2 - Perform Check Disk
1. Locate the Sansa player under My Computer.
2. Right-click the removable drive associated with the Sansa player, and select Properties.
3. Click the Tools tab, and then click Check now.
4. Click to select the Automatically fix the file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check boxes.
5. Click Start.

You can manually transfer files thru My Computer>Device Name (m240). Just drop the files, no folders, into the device. Best of Luck.

You can connect the device to your computer and manage it thru "My Computer. Open My Computer, then open the device (i.e. Sansa m240). Inside there is a Music folder, you can delete them from here. You can also drag songs here to transfer to the player. If you are not able to see the "music" folder, you may need to enable "Hidden Files and Folders" on your computer. Best of Luck.

I can't delete files off of my mp3 player!


Hi, This is taken from another post, but might work for you as well: 1. Take the battery out of the Sansa player. 2. While the battery is out, plug the Sansa m200 player into another USB port, preferably a rear one or a self powered USB hub, on the computer. 4. If the screen reads ?USB Connected? when the Sansa player is plugged in with no battery, unplug the Sansa player. 5. Hold the "Menu Button" (Power Button) for 45 seconds. 6. Connect it to the computer again (still without the battery). 7. If the screen once again reads ?USB Connected,? disconnect the player and insert a new battery which has never been previously used. 8. Try powering on the player. If the above procedures (power cycle) didn't work, please repeat the process again but now hold the power button for 2 minutes and wait for at least 5 minutes before plugging in new set of batteries.
