How can I put music on Sansa MP3 player from Macbook Pro?


Not to sure about a mac but I think mac's use a mp4 format when it rips a cd, and the Sansa will use a mp3 file. You can download a free program to convert these files but again, I know where for a PC but not a mac. Look for free mp4 to mp3 converter program for Mac..

Sansa m230 not syncing music files or downloading them. Process leaves the Sansa m230 with 0 files and i am finding it impossible to load new file(s) ?


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.

Windows can't see all songs on M230


Problem was half the songs were added in one USB mode and the other half in the other. Was able to get everything off the M230 by copying half the files, then switching modes.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Downloading files from mp3 players


If the files are not on the PC, Windows Media Player will not see them. You can manually manage the music from My Computer. Double-click on the device name Sansa m230 and you can see the files and folder. You can just drag and drop these onto your computer to save them. You might also want to format the device to remove everything and give you a clean slate. Right Click on Sansa m230 and select format. Best of Luck.

Hi big dee. Deleting songs from your M230 can be done by either browsing the player through your Windows Explorer and then selectively deleting the music file, or by formatting the player which would delete all of your music files. It's also important to know that your player has 2 modes -- MTP and MSC -- because music files saved in one mode would not be seen in the other mode, and vice versa. To switch the modes on your player, use the menu and navigate as follows: Menu > Settings > USB You would get a choice of "Autodetect" (this is for MTP) and MSC. Here's how to delete the files: Step 1: Plug in your player to your computer. Open explorer and check if your player is detected. Your player's LCD would display "USB Connected" and the mode would be indicated below that. If your player's mode is MTP: A. Look for the Sansa M230 icon on Explorer (it will be recognized as a Portable Audio Device). Double left click on it to browse the player. B. The player will have 2 sub-folders: "Data" and "Media". Double left-click on the "Media" folder and either find your music files or open the "Music" folder to find your music files If your player's mode is MSC: A. Look for the Sansa M230 icon and drive letter on Explorer (it will be recognized as a "Removable Drive". Double left click on it to browse the player. B. The player will have several sub-folders such as "Audible", "Config", "Record". You may already be able to see your music files or the player may have a "Music" sub-folder. Open that to check for your files Step 2 Once you've located your files, you may now be able to delete them. Step 3 Once you've unplugged your player, the M230's LCD will display the message "Rebuilding Library". Let that process complete, then you may turn on your player to confirm that the files have been deleted. To format your player, just right-click on the M230 icon in Explorer, then select "Format". When the Format window appears, make sure to select "FAT" as the File System type, and also make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox at the bottom of the Window remains un-checked. I hope this info helps. Enjoy your M230. :)
