Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player
My Sansa M230 (512MB) used to work fine with Windows Media Player. I recently bought an iPod and installed iTunes (on 2 different computers). I just tried to sync my Sansa again and it won't work. Both computers do the same thing (with different cables). Namely they recognize something was plugged in but won't show the device in Windows Explorer or in Windows Media Player. The device is set to USB Auto-Detect.
If I switch it to MSC mode, Explorer and Media Player both see the device when plugged in both don't show any of my songs (because of the different format).
We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.
