Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

Sansa M240 and M250 freeze on initializing screen and aren't seen by the computer. Does anyone know how to force the unit to be seen by the computer so I can format it and load a new firmware? Are there pins on the chips I can cause it to reformat?

Sansa - sandisk m250 troubleshooting


Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:

  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second and then reinstall the battery without pushing any further buttons.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. This solution has worked for me.

I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players.

I am not able to format my Sansa m240 mp3 player. In the windows explorer, I do not see the Sansa m240 - instead I see MTP device. I do not see the format optiion when I right click on the MTP device item...


The below was copyed from an earlier post of mine. Over a period of time your info can get corrupt from transering music back and forth. To format plug it in to usb. Go to my computer It shows up as a removably disc, usually drive f: Right click on drive f: (or the approriate drive) and click format. Let me know what happens, you will have reload the player, also try bypassing the software you are using to tranfer, by opening up drive f: and clicking and dragging your music into it , or you can copy and paste it into drive f: L8R

My Sansa m240 freezes at the title screen.


I have the same problem. I called tech support 1-866-726-3475 and they talked me thru several cures. None of which worked. My unit is about 8 months old. After trying all the options, they gave me a rma number and are sending me a replacement. I think they have had some trouble with this lot of players, they were very nice and it took no prodding from me for a replacement! Good Luck1

Jan 21, 07 I called and spoke with a Sandisk rep on Jan 16 about the "Sansa m240 startup screen" freeze-up problem that so many are experiencing. He said a bad batch was sent out in early December and on those m240''s there is "NO POSSIBLE FIX" for that problem, but no plans for a recall. He said he could not discuss what the problem was, but I guess it would be a hardware issue, since a firmware issue could easily be resolved. He said anyone with this problem is requested to call Sandisk and get a MRA number, then return the m240 to Sandisk for a replacement. If you have one that''s frozen on the Sansa m240 startup screen (all other freeze-ups can probably be corrected) take it back to your place of purchase or call Sandisk immediately. <>
