Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player

9 Answers

MP3 Transfer When I plug my MP3 player into my computer and go to My Computer and then the icon, none of my songs are displayed except for the 5 I am trying to put on there. Oddly enough, when I actually try to listen to my MP3 player, I have the 71 songs Ive already downloaded, but not the 5 Im trying to put on there. My MP3 player says MTP on the front when plugged in. Please help me play my new songs!

Turn off the Mp3 off then plug it into the computer. If it doesn't work keep it on and try it that way.

I solved the problem on my win98se OS by using the drivers from GPX from another mp3 player ( MW6347DT ). Before, it did not find the pci to usb drivers, etc. Now, all the proper drivers are being found.
The MW6347DT driver for win98 can be found here:

If this is the MXP 100 player from e.Digital then you need the music explorer software that came with the player.

The sansa players have 2 usb modes. mtp and msc. when you are saving songs in one mode, you will not be able to browse the files in the other mode. the preloaded tracks are usually in mtp mode. To switch mode, go to Settings in your MP3 player. Then choose USB. Auto Detect is also MTP.

Hi, go to http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 and download the Sansa Firmware Updater. After running the updater, your MP3 player will be reseted and you will be good, with one drawback: the songs previously copied into the player that were not visible in Windows Explorer will be lost. But you will probably never face this issue again.

How to put on the songs on it

How to Add Songs on Samsung YP-U3 MP3 Players

The Samsung YP-U3 is an MP3 player that comes in various colors. This device has a built-in USB plug, so it's not necessary to have a cable to transfer songs from your computer. To transfer songs to your device, you will need to use a PC. If you don't have the Samsung Media Center installation disc, you can download the software from the Samsung website.


Instructions


Install the Samsung Media Center if you have not done so. This is the software used to transfer songs to the YU-P3. The installation disc comes with the device. Simply insert it and follow the on-screen prompts.


Insect the bottom end of your device. You'll see a hidden USB plug on the end. Push it outward to extend it. Plug the device into your computer's USB port. This is usually on the front of the tower. The Samsung Media Center will automatically start after a few seconds.


Locate the file you want to transfer to the device. The Media Center's screen will display the MP3 (and other audio) files currently on your computer. When you find a file you want to add, click on it.


Click on the "Right Arrow" button. This transfers the song to the device. Repeat to transfer more songs, if desired.


Right click on the green USB icon on the right-side of your taskbar. Select "Safely Remove." Unplug your Samsung YP-U3 when prompted.


Hope it helped..

Have a nice day...

On my computer it will not let me download songs to my player

You can use the following two metheds:
  • **Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder; available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
  • --**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

Deleting files

You have to plug the mp3 player into the computer, double-click My Computer, double click on the icon of the GoGear, and then go into the Music folder - exercise caution: only delete music files - if you delete files that are non-music files, you will effectively destroy your GoGear.

Windows Media Player is more complex, but it is a safer way to delete songs:

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard
