    My SANSA m240 just locked up while I was playing the radio. I have replaced the battery and left the battery out over night and the thing still doesn't work. The thing is not on hold. When I push the power it now says initializing but doesn't do anything else. The only way I can turn it off is by removing the battery. When I plug it in to the computer it doesn't load.

    What should I do? David.W.Bloom@gmail.com

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

What i would recommend you to do is to uninstall the device and reinstall it back...to uninstall it...assuming that you are running windows xp...click on start, right click on my computer and go to properties..you should have your system properties open then click under hardware then device manager...look for the sansa device..it usually located under portable device..if its not showing there i would recommend you to look for under disk drives and see if its there..right click on the device and click on uninstall...after you unintall it unplug your device from the computer....Then follow this link below to download the porting kit...http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A2E73160-E862-4F19-BB26-C0CAFE798955&displaylang=en .Then check the mode of yuor device to make sure it sunder MTP not msc...To check the mode go under menu, settings and choose usb mode...After you check the mode open up your windows media player click on tools, options and click under privacy...clear the history and caches...after you finish you can plug the device on the back of the computer not the front then windows should recongnize it and it should work properly..if that doesnt solve the problems upgrade your windows media player to 11 even though you have done that already..and try to reconnect your device..make sure you have it connected on the back USB>>>

And if that doesnt work try to obtain the driver for your sandisk device go to http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/index.asp and find the driver for your device..and then connecct the device on the back of your computer...it should work properly..if you are still having any problems..let me know..i would be more than happy to assist you..

The reset hole should be at the bottom right side of the player depending on which model type you have. If a reset does not work using the reset hole, then try this: First, back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and disconnect it from the computer. Then press and hold the play/puse button and turn it on simultaneously. The player should be in recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format. Then reload all of music back onto your player and it should work like new. Hope this helps!

I have the 4204-A and it is stuck on one song. I can't change it it's frozen in this spot. What is happen and what do I do now? No it is not locked on the back. Just want it working again. Thanks...


Thier should be two small holes on the player probably on the back one is the microphone the Other is the reset switch. Mic should be labled. Take a straightened paperclip and gently press it
in the hole and the paperclip shoud press a switch on the inside of the player to reset it.

Frozen screen/


Try turning it off waiting 20 seconds and turning it back on. Sometimes that helps. If it doesn't, try looking in the users manual to troubleshoot the problem. Good luck.

If you hold the power button for 20 seconds it will shut off. I had the similar problem where I unplugged my Insignia NS4V17B frozed on the bluetooth initializing screen. I turned it off then back on and it is now working fine.
