Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player
Hi, I have 30 mp3s on my sandisk and when I connect to the computer, I cant see any of them. All I see is 3 empty folders AUDIBLE, CONFIG, RECORD and a file named SYS_CONF.DNC . Now when I load extra songs from my PC to Sandisk, i can see them in respective folders I load (even when I unplug and plug sandisk back 2 my PC). How to see these songs whch are missing ? and how to delete them ? I have tried Windows player, it doesnt help
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.

I have the fix for this:
if you are using an older unregistered copy of WINDOWS, then your problem is that you need to have a newer copy of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER operating on your system. If you have recently reformatted and lost your newer version of WM Player , then you have lost the drivers necessary to read your SANDISK player and your OS will not show the older MP3 files on your mp3 player in Windows Explorer . You need to download and install a newer version of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER because WMP is the part of your WINDOWS operating system that contains the newer drivers that your SANDISK requires. Older versions of WINDOWS/WMP do not have the right drivers

I had the exact same problem, it was very frustrating. I finally solved it by going to www.sandisk.com and dowloading the latest version of the Firmware for the mp3 player. It will erase all the files off of the player so you'll have to reload them, but it solved the problem.
