My sansa 8.0 gb stopped allowing me to play FM radio and sometimes it freezes and I added a few CD's to my play list and when I went to play them, it just shows the song titles on the CD and skips through them I cannot get them to play, so now I have only 70 songs and I am sick of them and now no FM this thing is junk I am so irratated I should have got an IPOD!

    Sansa View Vedio MP3 Player 8GB is frozen on the radio, the screen is lit up along with the dial, I can't scroll up or down or over the my downloaded music. All I could do was disconnect then reconnect the connector cable.

    Any suggestions?

Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

How do I record FM radio programs and transfer them to my computer?


unfortunately, the voice recorder works only as voice recorder, it cannot play FM and record it at the same time. though you can play fm radio from another device and record it using your SanDisk mp3 player.

To transfer your recordings from your mp3 player, connect your device to your PC.

Open "My computer" from your PC and you'll there "your Sansa Player"

Double-click on "your Sansa Player", then open the "Music" folder, then, open "Recordings" folder.

You'll find all your recordings on that folder.

My sandisk mp3 player /FM is not working


you did not explain exactly what is happening with your sansa m240 mp3 player.

have you recently gotten it wet. ie did it fall in the sink, did you wear it in the pouring rain? if you have i have some very bad news for you. My sansa died after it got wet, the radio refuses to turn in it just continuosly climbs through the available frequencies. it takes lots of playing around with it manually some times i lucked out and got a radio station to work if that happened the would all work. sometimes i could not get one station to work on days ike that it never worked at all...

If the m240 flash and chipset gets wet, even if correctly dried they never seem to work right again. at this point it is best to replace the mp3 player. with how cheap many models are at walmart i am advising many people to replace the sansa with a new model perhaps one of the sansa fuse with the micro sd expansion slot

4 gb sansa plus upto 32 gb more on expansion... works great and holds a small ton of music/ browse for your new one now.

Sansa 2.0


 i would say no but it depends on what you mean. if you want like xm or am radio, then no, because there is only an fm tuner built into the player. i guess i would need you to specify what you mean by radio programs

Sansa e280 fm recordings


First, try to copy the files to your PC. Make sure you have a CD burning program and drive of some kind. WAV files are very large compared to Mp3 files, so you may be only to fit a few on an AUDIO CD. If you burn the WAV files to CD as a DATA CD, then you will be able to fit more files onto a single CD, but you will not be able to play that same CD in a CD player.

Sansa 280 with 8 gigs


The message says it needs 6MB of space for the MUSIC DB ( the database, the artist names, etc).

You need to delete some of the recordings off of your device to free up some space.

You can manually delete the files while connected to your computer from My Computer>Device Name (e280)>MUSIC Folder.




Best of Luck.
