Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player

1 Answer

No Icon I got a sansa sandisc m230. For the first 3 months or so, it was fine. But now when I connect it to my computer, no Icon shows up.The thing about sync. comes up, but using media player screwed up my other one. The Icon I am supposed to see on the sidebar on windows explorer shows up on the bottom bar, but only for a sec. So, I cant put music on it. I tried switching it the other USB format, but it wont transfer. I am really frustrated because I have had the same music for 2 months!

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Sansa Clip does not show up on computer


I had the same problem all you've got to do is first turn on the sansa clip.Then go to settings. After that scroll down to USB mode (second from bottom) then it woul probably say auto detect. Scroll down to MSC then hit enter. If that doesn't work try MTP mode.

Hiiii....unable to to turn on my sandisc after i formatted it


does it turn out or get recognised when you connect it to your computer?

if so you can try upgrading the firmware:

Before installing the player must be in MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode to run the firmware.All files will be deleted. Backup your files.

(To switch modes, Go to Menu > Settings > USB > The two options are MSC and AUTO DETECT (MTP) : select MSC)

Installation Instructions:

1. Download and run firmware from

http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1326

2. Follow instructions in installation.

If that doesn't work contact Sansa support there is a good chance they will replace the player for you . I've had things go wrong with mine twice and the've replaced it, In this regards the service is pretty good

Sansa m240


Hi. I'm having the same problem with my m250 and am concerned, since I've only had it for a month. Nothing I do, including removing the battery, hooking it up to my computer again, or holding the power button down for a long period of time works.

I can not get the song off that came with the mp3 player. help!!!


It might be a glitch and I had my Sandisc Sansa e250R mp3 player for a very short time but I think if you delete the Rhapsody Channels with the player instead of the computer it might work. Hope it works

How do i delete pics from my sandisc sansa e260.


what you need to do is this. i cant help you if you have a mac but i can help you if you have a pc. for pcs, you need to plug in your player.once its connected, double click "my computer".in it, the player should have registered and their should be an icon that says "sandisk sansa e260" ( or something like that, i couldnt exsactly tell you considering my player is completely busted at the moment.)then you should see a bunch of files.the files will include album art,songs,and folders for videos or pictures.in the pictures folder you can access your pictures,and right click on the files you wish to delte, and simply just...hit delete.
