Accessing MicroSD Card - Sansa c240

When I put an 8gb Sandisc MicroSD Card in the slot is something supposed to happen?
The player doesn't seem to see it and under settings it still only reports 1gb of memory.
Should it read 9gb if the card is working properly?

    You were right. The Sansa c240 only supports up to 2gb MicroSD cards.

    The original firmware only supports 2GiB, the update will permit up to 8GiB (4GiB micro SD cards work fine) and SDHC is newer than that device so 8GiB media made without fallback capability will generally not be recognized.

Wlubbert,

The memory won't read 9GB. It should read 1GB of the built-in memory, and then 8GB or slightly less from the SD card. They are actually separate "drives". From this standpoint, it seems like there are 2 possibilities:

1) The player isn't compatible with that new, top of the line SD card. (Most likely the case.)

2) The card is defective and needs to be exchanged under warranty or your money refunded.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

I have a Sansa e250 and I just bought a 8GB microSD card. Ideally, I would be able to add 10GB worth of music and playlists, however I can't get the Sansa player to read the music from the microSD...


The Sansa e250 works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity). While microSDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the e250.

microSD cards max out at 2GB in size, but you can put your music on several of them and swap them in and out. It's not as convenient as having them all on one card, but that's the best you can do with the e250.

Some later models such as the Fuze will accept microSDHC cards.

Sansa e200 wont recognize 8GB microSD


The Sansa e200 series machines work with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use microSD cards, which are 2GB and smaller.

Later model Sansa such as the Fuze will work with microSDHC cards, but not the e200. Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

How do you put songs on a Sansa c240 MP3 player?


If you plug the player into a USB port, it should appear in My Computer.
Open it and drag and drop the songs into it.
If you have a microSD card fitted that will show up as well.
Think of it as just another thumb drive.

You can also put songs on a microSD card using a card reader, and plug it into your player.

There are software utilities that will automatically update your player's contents, but i have never looked at them, having found the above two methods sufficient.

After reaching the capacity of my 8gb Sansadisk, I purchased and installed a 16 gb micro sd card, but got no more memory, why not?


The Sansa Clip+ uses microSD cards. Your 16GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I am considering purchasing a Sandisc Micro SDHC 8Gb card for my Sandisc E260 MP3 Player. Will this be OK?


Hello,

Highest capacity memory card for the e200 series depends on the firmware version.

Consulting the Sandisk page gives next information:
Sansa e200 - verify the version of the player. To check, go to Settings > Info.

For 01.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards
For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards
NOTE: Firmware is not interchangeable.

How to I start the c240 up it My computer doesnt


On Windows XP, when you open My Computer, the Sansa C240 shows up at the bottom, under "Other". Because of DRM restrictions, you cannot copy media files to the C240 using Windows Explorer. You have to use Windows Media Player to sync playlists to the C240 (WinAmp can do it also).
I also suggest that you check out RockBox. It's an alternative operating system for portable media players and they have a version for the Sansa C240. It will give you some additional functionality.
As far as I can tell, to copy files to the microSD card (if you're using one) you have to use a media card reader, then insert the card into the C240.

External memory read


Verify that you are using a microSD card (max 2GB), not a microSDHC (4GB or larger) card.
You can use a microSDHC if you install RockBox on your Sansa C240, but it will be read-only. You will have to use an external card reader to copy media to it.

My sansa player does not recognize a micro sd when its inserted


Sorry, it doesn't work that way. You can use a separate card reader to put files onto the microSD card. When the card is installed into the Sansa, the Sansa will see the additional music.

The photo files that aren't showing up don't meet the specification in some way or another - they aren't jpeg, the resolution is wrong, or the file size is wrong. Transferring music files from card in mp3 player to computer may not be possible - connect mp3 player to computer, double-click my computer, and open photos folder or any other folder that looks relevant - see if the said photo files are in there. If not, then you are out of luck.
