Re: SanDisk Sansa c240
The photo files that aren't showing up don't meet the specification in some way or another - they aren't jpeg, the resolution is wrong, or the file size is wrong. Transferring music files from card in mp3 player to computer may not be possible - connect mp3 player to computer, double-click my computer, and open photos folder or any other folder that looks relevant - see if the said photo files are in there. If not, then you are out of luck.

If you plug the player into a USB port, it should appear in My Computer. Open it and drag and drop the songs into it. If you have a microSD card fitted that will show up as well. Think of it as just another thumb drive.
You can also put songs on a microSD card using a card reader, and plug it into your player.
There are software utilities that will automatically update your player's contents, but i have never looked at them, having found the above two methods sufficient.
The micro card (the smaller one) can be used alone in a port that accepts (microSD ports)such as those on a Sansa c240, c250, e250 etc. If you have a regular SD slot (larger than microSD) then you plug the micro card in the adapter and plug the whole into a regular SD slot.
Plug the card in your computer and copy paste the files. Or plug the micro card in an MP3 player that accepts it and use you music transfert software.
You only have one card (the micro SD one), which you can use in two possible slots.
On Windows XP, when you open My Computer, the Sansa C240 shows up at the bottom, under "Other". Because of DRM restrictions, you cannot copy media files to the C240 using Windows Explorer. You have to use Windows Media Player to sync playlists to the C240 (WinAmp can do it also). I also suggest that you check out RockBox. It's an alternative operating system for portable media players and they have a version for the Sansa C240. It will give you some additional functionality. As far as I can tell, to copy files to the microSD card (if you're using one) you have to use a media card reader, then insert the card into the C240.
Verify that you are using a microSD card (max 2GB), not a microSDHC (4GB or larger) card. You can use a microSDHC if you install RockBox on your Sansa C240, but it will be read-only. You will have to use an external card reader to copy media to it.
You can add more storage memory for your device by using microSD cards. You can plug the microSD card into the slot provided on the player and then store your files on the card. If you had a 1GB player and added a 1GB card you've effectively doubled your memory. That's probably the memory upgrade you're thinking about.
The memory won't read 9GB. It should read 1GB of the built-in memory, and then 8GB or slightly less from the SD card. They are actually separate "drives". From this standpoint, it seems like there are 2 possibilities:
1) The player isn't compatible with that new, top of the line SD card. (Most likely the case.)
2) The card is defective and needs to be exchanged under warranty or your money refunded.
