Hmm.... having not experienced this problem since I have an A: C: D: and E: drive I might suggest trying to figure out how to set your drive letter from E: to F:
Sorry I can't recall the process since I haven't set a drive letter in 10 years but try a google search on it something like "assign Drive letter"
Then once you understand the process plug in your MP3 and assign it's drive letter to F: (since most computers have the CD drive set as E: your system might get the idea that it's a CD drive instead of MP3) make note of process in case you need to repeat it the next time you hook up your MP3.

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. Then add music this way and see if it is works: 1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3. Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player?s memory are displayed. 4. Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer?s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5. Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

Sansa says full but there is no files located....


You should format the device thru My Computer, rather than Windows Media Player.

FORMAT: My Computer>Device Name (m230)>Right Click and select format.

This will erase everything on the device and you can start anew.





Best of Luck.

I dont usually mess around with real player when you dl or put your music on your computer put a shared folder in there and put all your music in there and then when you connect your mp3 player go to your shared folder and right click on the song when it comes up go to send to and it will give you a list it will say what ever you mp3 player is named and if you click that it will put your music on your mp3 player and if you couyld upgrade to at least a widows xp ~Grim
