The software is available from the SanDisk website

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

I cannot access the music on my Samsa M230 via USB to PC. I would like to copy the music off the sansa and add new music, but windows media player doest show any music files on the m230 drive


Hello,

There are 2 modes the player can connect to a computer:
1. MSC mode: the operating system, seeing the player as a removable disk on "My Computer"
2. MTP mode: added software, when an extra program is started the player is detected in this application software: e.g. Windows Media Player

When songs show up on the player but not on My Computer:
1. The player is in MSC mode and music has been put on the player with a program in MTP mode
or
2. The player is in MTP mode and music has been put on the player
using Windows Explorer in My Computer in MSC mode

In your case the solution should be:
Switch the player into MSC mode and look in Windows Explorer for
a driver letter with a capacity of about 512MB memory.

How to get the player in MSC mode:
Using the menu on the player:
From the main menu go to Settings Menu > USB and select MSC mode.
Using the hold switch on the player:
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.

Explore "My Computer", looking for the players content showing up as a drive letter (about 512 MB sized for the m230)
Click the drive letter, select your files and "copy + save" or "drag and drop" them to a location on the computer.

When needing more help, just post a comment.

Erase everything from my Sandisk M230


Hello!

Im affraid to answer this question. because i only gain' thanks for trying" but its ok.

In your case , If you want to delete all files in your sansa, maybe you can delete it by formatting your sansa disk. You can find maybe the format on the menu and select format the disk(something like that.) Or you can connect the sansa to the computer and delete all files in there. You can browse your files in the my computer and select the drive created by computer when the sansa is connected.

may this help, melnavz

You can open the device under COMPUTER>Device Name (m230)

Open the MUSIC folder and just copy the contents to your computer by dragging and dropping them onto your desktop, or other location.

M230 big problem


Remove the battery from the player. Enable the hold switch and connect the player to the computer. Right-click on My Computer and choose Manage. Click on disk management if the player is listed there right click it and choose format. This will erase all the songs on the player. If the player is not listed there try another usb port. If all else fails try calling sandisk to see if there are other steps they could provide.
