Sansa m230 cannot see previously installed music files now that WMP11 is installed
I can load new music but the problem is I cannot see the old music on my computer. I therefore cannot delete older songs. I tried resetting the device but that wouldn't work either.

Re: Sansa m230 cannot see previously installed music...
To delete songs from your device follow the steps below You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there. Either under sync panel in your windowsmedia player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete. To format it..on your device..go under..menu, setting and there should be a format option option there..let me know if that doenst work for you... Hope this helps

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.
Try this. Set up a new user on your PC. Go to start, control panel, User accounts, create a new account, leave the setting for computer administrator, once the new account is created, try and connect your SanDisk. If successful, copy all your music file to the new account and load your mp3 player up with music. This is much better than reinstalling windows. Try this and let me know.
Use your computer to download and copy the files to the player.. Ya should have software that came with the player install that on the PC, and it should have a utility to put the files on ya player once they have been either "Ripped" from a CD/DVD or DLed from 'net then ya put 'em on ya player..
What are you using to load music. If you have access to Windows Media Player 11 it is very simple.
First open WMP11, make sure your player is connected to the computer with the USB cable. At the top of WMP11 click Sync
the player will sync with WMP11, drag and drop music and click sync, very simple. I have a Sansa View and it is very simple, This basically works with most MP3 players.
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
