Sansa m240 I want to delete some songs to make more room. When i plug it in, it only finds the albums/songs i have put on here using this computer. Is there anyway to get it to detect the other songs so i can delete some?

    mine does the same thing. Except we got an updated version of Windows Media Player and when I want to delete old songs it says no and doesn't do anything.

    Yeah i have the same thing happening to me. It will play any of my 140 songs on the player. but it won't do anything at all on the computer. the computer recognizes a device and when i open it up there's absolutely no files. not even folders. i don't really care if i have to reformat it either i actually have all of my songs on the computer too. but i just want it to work again

Scandisk m420 cant be detected by my computer

Posted on Sep 22, 2008

I have the same problem but i believe it is because of one computer using Fat32 file system and another using NTFS the only way i can think to fix it with out reformating is to make a FAT32 File partition on your computer so windows can operate in that environment for example if you used windows 98 to put music on this thing and then try to view it with XP the file systems are different and cant be recognized. you can make a back up of the system files for it on the computer. Format the device and then when you save NTFS files to it your new computer will recognize it. Im just trying to make sure that if i format the drive i wont lose the operating system on he mp3 player

In the player go to Settings->USB and set MSC. Now connect it to your computer and you'll be able to find the songs in the removable drive.

go under - my computer - and choose the removable drive your player is creating (ex Removable drive E:) and you should find the folder with the songs this way.Of course you have to conect your player to the computer first :-)

Can't delete songs


Go to Windows Media Player under the Sync tab, over on the far left should be the name of the player, click on it and find the name of the song by album title, artist, or whatever, click on the title and click delete and you should be able to delete any song you like without deleting them all

Can't delete songs


The sansa has two USB modes. If you load tracks in one mode you have to be in the same mode to see them in explorer and also be able to delete them. Took me ages to figure this out. From the main menu, go to Settings then select USB and toggle between "MSC" and "Auto Detect". You should then be able to see the hidden tracks. I have firmware 2.2.5A installed so you might want to check that too.

I now only use the Sansa in MSC mode as it seems to crash Winamp if I use it in Autodetect.

Reset button


When you plug the USB Cable into the device, go to My COmputer. In your removeable devices it should say something to the effect of, Sansa. Right click this and open. It will open a folder containing all of your music. You can delete them from there. Question for you. How do you add songs to a playlist or to your favorites. The help disk that came with mine doesnt work.
