Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Songs appear but don't play

I loaded songs onto my sandisk 230 and they appear on the list when it's plugged into the computer - but once I unplug it - they aren't there to play. I can play them on the computer when the sandisk is plugged in. What am I doing wrong? They are in Windows media player format as are some other things. Thanks for your help!!

I'm pretty sure m230 is supposed to play WMA files, but I don't use that format. Drop a MP3 file in the Audible folder and make sure it plays. xlthim.

The songs are in the wrong format. They probably have a restrictive DRM license that limits playback on mp3 players (although the songs may play fine on your computer). iTunes format will not work at all. The best way to avoid a problem like this is to only use songs that are in mp3 format.

Sansa E250 how do I put songs onto the mp3


Go to My Computer and then look for the Sansa 250 icon there. If it doesn't show up, unplug the USB cord and plug it in again. Once you have the icon visible in My Computer, click on it twice and open it up. To load content, go to wherever you have MP3 files or whatever and use Windows Explorer to copy the content from your computer to the Sansa. You can also manage it through Real Player or other MP3 players (Media Monkey).

Sandisk 240 1.0 gb


I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.

Randomly deleted songs and cannot upload more


Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sandisk's website to be on the safe side, but I'm thinking that your song licenses expired. Convert all of your songs to mp3 format, and you will not have these kinds of problems.

Cant get songs to appear on player


Songs that are in the correct format will show up in the music menu when you disconnect the mp3 player from the computer. Songs that are in the wrong format will not show up at all when disconnected from the computer.

Open Windows Media Player and click on the icon of the Sansa to view what the songs that have been loaded onto there.

My songs show up in music folder on the drive, but not on the actual player.


Backup the songs on the player, delete them from it and load them back on. This should build the song lists back up.

REMOVE AND ADD NEW MUSIC


The drivers for the player if it is in autodetect would be windows media player 10 or higher and if its in MSC then it would be plug and play to the computer.

Playing itunes on SanDisk


Depends on the format of the song. If it is .AAC it wont play on the Sansa. You'll need to convert the song to mp3 or wmv format, do a google search for "Mp3 converters" if you need to find a converter

Delete demo files on Sandisk c150?


The demo songs still don't show up when I select "Show hidden files/folders". I had go to Menu->Settings->Format, and proceed with formatting it to get the demo songs off my Sansa c240 (This will delete all songs/files).
