Re: m230 big problem
Remove the battery from the player. Enable the hold switch and connect the player to the computer. Right-click on My Computer and choose Manage. Click on disk management if the player is listed there right click it and choose format. This will erase all the songs on the player. If the player is not listed there try another usb port. If all else fails try calling sandisk to see if there are other steps they could provide.

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the SanDisk website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.
We had the same problem with Windows XP. We found some help on the Sandisk web site. On the device go to the Settings menu, then USB. We changed from AutoDetect to MSC mode and everything is working again. Our computer saw all of the songs on our computer fine. Some of the old songs on the Sansa didn't show up on the detect list in Windows Media Player, but they were still on the device.
Try formating the sansa first. You can do so by clicking on "My computer" and then right click on the sansa drive and "Format".
It will help in case the 20th song was in an invalid format.
Let me know if it helped.
Your problem is probably beacause you accidently deleted "AudibleActivation.sys" from your "Audible"-folder. Format the sansa and then use "reset to factory settings" to make the file appear again. It might be a good idea to make a backup on your hard drive, just in case, and make the file hidden.
