Alright, if you really have the sansa m240, you shouldn't need a disk for this player to work on the computer, when it is hooked up to the computer, it will have a type of encryption show up on the screen. It will say MTS or MSC I believe, if yours isn't working, then you want the other one which can be changed in the menu settings. Just search all sections until you find it, if you can't, then please send me all of the options that you have to choose from and I will help you find it seeing as I can't remember exactly where it was off of the top of my head (I changed it on my sister's player but I don't live with her and I don't own one myself) I would be more than happy to help, just let me know, thanks

My sandisk says,"not enough space

"You need to format your device, the best recommendation is to place it into MSC mode. This is the Sansa's mass storage mode and it allows the device to be treated as a drive. Go to the settings menu and find USB Mode. There are two choices, MSC and MTP. Choose MSC. MTP is for music transfer using a media player software like Windows Media Player. If you don't have a way to set MSC mode with a menu on the device, engage the 'hold' switch, and while holding down the left or right button (others report also using the center button), plug the device into the USB connector. Make sure the USB is already plugged into the computer. You shouldn't need to do this with a standard e250; the menu should work. After you have connected the device in MSC mode, right click My Computer and choose Manage from the menu. Find Disk Management and select it. The disks should be numbered, starting with 0 for the C: drive. You should see a drive that says SANSA E250, or something similar. Write down the type of file system if it is shown. Most e250's says FAT32. Some are FAT, but check to be sure. There will be two partitions on the disk. The larger of the two is for your music files. The smaller is for when the device goes into "hibernation" - it's so you'll be back to the exact same song when it powers back on. Right click the larger partition and choose Format from the menu. You will see the format dialog. Set the volume label to SANSA E250 (I believe that's your device type), set the file system to what you wrote down earlier (do NOT choose NTFS!) and leave the Allocation unit size at "Default." Do not check either of the two check boxes. Click on OK. Keep an eye on the partition in Disk Management and you will see the percent complete. When it's done, look in the System Tray (by the date and time). You should see an icon for safely removing hardware. Double-click it to bring up the safely remove hardware dialog. Click on the USB drive representing your Sansa device and click Stop. Another dialog will come up and you'll have to do this again. Close the dialog when the device has stopped. The device will restart and initialize the music database. You're done! Now change to MTP mode and sync the device and add your songs back in. Whenever you are in MSC mode, ALWAYS stop the device as I described in the paragraph above. That way you won't corrupt the drive."

My sansa m230 driver mp3 player is not detected as removalble disk i mean as a flash drive on my laptop how can i fix this issue


When you're able to change USB mode in the display:
- From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB
- Select in "Auto Detect", "MTP" or "MSC": choose MSC for viewing the player as a removable disk.
When you cannot select MSC mode in the player's menu, force MSC mode with the player switches/buttons:
1. Turn device OFF.
2. Facing the hold switch: slide it to the right so an orange color would show, putting the device on Hold.
3. Connect the device to the PC with the provided USB cable.

In MSC mode: Before disconnecting the USB cable always go through the safely remove hardware icon in the lower screen of your computer on the right. Left click the icon to see all removable disks and left click on the removable disk drive letter of the player to disconnect: after the message you can take out the USB cable.

I a have a sansa clip mp3 player

Make sure the device is set to MSC mode under Settings on the device (Menu --> Settings --> USB Mode --> MSC )
If you already have music on your PC, follow the instructions provided in the following link to transfer music over to your Sansa Clip.

It's ot working...:( i need help


Which type of computer (Windows Vista, Windows XP, MacOS, MacOSX) are you using?

Also, check on your mp3 player for which version you have.
e200 [version 1]
e200R [Rhapsody]
e200v2 [version 2]
(See pictures here...

The solution is different based on which model.

The solutions all center around switching between MTC and MSC mode. You can find this setting under the general "settings" tab.

Depending on the computer system you are using, switching between those modes can sometimes trigger your Sansa to connect again.

Connection fault with 605 and the PC

I've had a similar issue where I could not see it as a drive.
1st off, have you set it to be a hard drive?
If so, have you tried going into Disk Management on your pc to associate the drive with a drive letter?
Plug the Archos in and go to Start\run, type diskmgmt.msc and click ok.
I can't remember exactly what I did next once in there, but it would have been straight forward for me to be able to do it and now I can see the Archos every time with no problems.
Hope this helps........

The PC don't see ...

I think I found a solution to that.

The sansa has 2 USB connection mode.
Old: MSC and Newer: MTC.
When it is configured to use auto connection, it will use the MTC if it possible.
When it is in the MTC mode, I can;t see all files.
I go to the Menu=>Settings=>USB and picked the MSC option.

When I reconnected my device I could see a new directory: "Audible" and in it found my files.

Hope it will help

Sansa M240

The problem might be with the USB compatibility. The player has two option automatic and MSC. If you go to the settings -> USB menu you can change to MSC and this will allow you to copy files like a USB key or format the drive and then change it back to auto and use the MTP standard to sync the music with media player.
