Mi Sandisk m240 no la leen los pc


La compania Sansa tiene respuestas a varios problemas en espanol en este link: http://kb-es.sandisk.com/app/answers/list/search/1/kw/sansa%20m240%20manual , Quizas se encuentra alli una respuesta.
Paara pensar en soluciones a su problema hace falta mas informacion: el tipo de pc que esta utilizando (mac o windows, si windows, cual systema - windows xp, vista o windows 7?). El aparato m240 se enciende y reproduce la musica que ya tiene?
Hay dos modos de conectarse el m240 a un pc: MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) para sincronizarse a traves de un servicio como i-tunes, y MSC (Mass Storage Class), que actua como un usb Flash Drive en la compu. Posiblemente su m240 esta en modo MTP y si lo cambia a MSC se reconoce por el pc (vea http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/207/kw/m240 en ingles).
Quizas si pregunta de nuevo en ingles recibira mas respuestas que le ayuden: My Sandisk m240 is not recognized by my pc, or does not appear in My Computer when connected to my pc.

I got a problem with my mp3


Hello,

Transfers onto the m240 can be done in 2 USB connection modes:
MTP mode: Media Transfer Protocol using software, e.g. Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
MSC mode: Mass Storage Class using Windows Explorer, looking in "My Computer" viewing the player as a removable disk.

Typically, songs put onto the player in MSC mode can not be viewed in MTP mode and the other way around.

Switching to MSC mode in the player's menu:
Look in the player under Settings Menus > USB > select MSC for using the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method for transfers in "My Computer".
When Auto Detect is selected, it depends on the configuration of the computer, what setup for priority has been installed.

Forcing the player into MSC mode:
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.

Information for the USB connection mode and how to make hidden files in XP and Vista visible, on the support site:

My Sansa m240 is saying there is no music on it when i plug it in the computer the music is really still there...what do i do?


Look for changing the USB mode of the device to MSC or MTP
Go to USB Mode settings. if you have a Sansa View - From the Main Menu, select More -> Settings/Options -> System Settings -> USB Mode.
if you have a Sansa Fuze - From the Main Menu, select Settings > System Settings > USB Mode.
if you have a Sansa Clip, e200v1 series, e200v2 series and e200R - From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.
Select Auto Detect, MTP or MSC. e200R - PlayforSure is MTP and Rhapsody is MSC
NOTE: The USB mode is not selectable for Sansa View (FW 1.03.XX and below), Sansa e200v2 (FW 03.01.14 and below), and Sansa Clip (FW 1.01.11 and below). The USB Mode setting can be enabled on these players using a firmware update.
For a more detailed explanation of MSC and MTP modes see my tip posted here --- -> http://www.fixya.com/support/r3774047-solve_mp3_player_connection_problem <-

Formatting the sansa m240


You need to switch the player to MSC mode. Got to settings -> USB -> MSC. Then you will be able to format the drive. If it is in MTP mode you can only tranfer files using Media player.

Sandisk sansa problem


This error message may largely be due to the corrupted Music Database file that the Sansa M240 creates to maintain an information pool on the music files downloaded to it. Normally, if you are unable to completely format the player in Windows Explorer, there are still 2 other (and actually, more recommended) options that you have: (1) Switching the M240 to MSC mode and formatting in "Disk Management". You can get to this window by right-clicking the "My Computer" icon and selecting "Manage". Make sure that you use the FAT file system to optimize the 1GB memory (2) Switching the M240 to MTP mode and formatting the player in Windows Media Player 10 or version 11. The mode of the M240 can be changed by accessing the menu and going to "Settings", then choosing "USB" In general, formatting the player in "Disk Management" is more effective than formatting it in Windows Explorer. Also, it would be a good idea to upgrade the player's firmware to the latest version via the SanDisk website: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 I hope this helps. The M240 is a great player.
