Questions & Answers
Can you put videos on it
No, the Sansa C240 does not support video files. It will handle MP3, WMA, WAV, and protected WMA DRM audio files. It can also handle still images in JPEG, TIFF, PNG, BMP, and GIF files.
I wish that I had better news for you. Some of the newer MP3 players from SanDisk do support video files.

How do you put songs
If you plug the player into a USB port, it should appear in My Computer.
Open it and drag and drop the songs into it.
If you have a microSD card fitted that will show up as well.
Think of it as just another thumb drive.
You can also put songs on a microSD card using a card reader, and plug it into your player.
There are software utilities that will automatically update your player's contents, but i have never looked at them, having found the above two methods sufficient.

My device isnt displaying all of the media clips
The Sansa player can hook up to a computer in two different modes. Through normal use it can switch modes on it's own, although rare it can happen. Now stuff added in one mode can not be seen in the other mode and you can not delete the files. So you have MSC mode which means Mass storage class and is the best mode to use. Then MTP mode means Media transfer protocol, you have to use this mode if you use Napster and such to download MP3's with protected content (DRM) you have to set the player to one mode or the other, to see the files and delete the files you want to delete or to find the missing files. MSC makes your player look like a thumb drive, and is easy to use. Another reason you cant see video clips would be due to the extension name of the file. or the type of file it is. The Sansa players can see AVI, MPEG-4 (mp4) video types. If you have a fla video loaded on the player can not see it.,

How do i delete songs
Books, Apps,etc. from MP3 Player/Ipod
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,
right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
BE CAREFUL and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player.
