Ok so i got a new SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player from a friend of my dad's. It is brand new and it seemed to be just fine. I loaded all my songs to it, but still when i unplug it from my computer it will not turn on. I don't thinkits dead because i put brand new batteries inside. When its plugged in the screen on the mp3 says USB connected and has a little circle with half of it darkly filled. Why isn't it turning on?
I bought a Sansa m240 last week. After three days of use, I came up with the problem you're describing. Luckily, I was able to return it to the store. The clerk told me they have a lot of people returning this MP3 Player! It's pretty flaky I guess...

I use Windows Media Player v11. Select the "Sync" tab, then you can list the songs that are already on the mp3 player, delete any that are not required, and put other songs on there by putting them in the sync list and pressing the "Start Sync" button.
open up windows media player and select copy to disk or device then drag you r songs to the right side of the screen and then on the left select the bar and find sandisk sansa m240 and then click the copy button
there are 2 usb choices on the sansa m240 one is msc the other is auto detect. msc is for downloading new upgrade software i beleive , because thats the setting sndisk has you set it on to download new upgrade software .it stands for mass storage class .it may need to be on auto detect .
