I can not retrieve my music from my sandisk sansa mp3 player. Windows Explorer shows FIXED SD instead of displaying my music. The MP3 player is fully loaded with music and can be played. But can not have songs loaded or erased from the player. Never seen this code before and do not know what it means. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

With a desktop computer and the USB cable you can transfer music to your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. Simply hook the USB cable up to an available USB port and begin dragging music files to the folders of your SanDisk MP3 player1 Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2 Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3 Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player's memory are displayed. 4 Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer's memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5 Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6 Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.
You can delete the music by plugging it into the computer's usb port and once the system detected the new usb device which is your sandisk sansa mp3 player, right click on your windows start button and choose Explore. It will open the windows explorer window. From your left panel, look for the local drive letter associated with the sansa mp3 player and click on it to show the contents on the right side of the window. Once you see the music, you can just click on the files to highlight and press delete on the keyboard. That's it!
To delete files using your computer, 1. connect your sansa to the computer, 2.select open device to view files using windows explorer on inital contact, 3.select the place you want music deleted from, 4.highlight and delete the music files or folder (if your lucky),from My Computer/Sansa e270/Internal Memory/ Music folder!
you can also manually delete files from the device if this does'nt work..........
This error message may largely be due to the corrupted Music Database file that the Sansa M240 creates to maintain an information pool on the music files downloaded to it.
Normally, if you are unable to completely format the player in Windows Explorer, there are still 2 other (and actually, more recommended) options that you have:
(1) Switching the M240 to MSC mode and formatting in "Disk Management". You can get to this window by right-clicking the "My Computer" icon and selecting "Manage". Make sure that you use the FAT file system to optimize the 1GB memory
(2) Switching the M240 to MTP mode and formatting the player in Windows Media Player 10 or version 11.
The mode of the M240 can be changed by accessing the menu and going to "Settings", then choosing "USB"
In general, formatting the player in "Disk Management" is more effective than formatting it in Windows Explorer.
Also, it would be a good idea to upgrade the player's firmware to the latest version via the SanDisk website:
I hope this helps. The M240 is a great player.
