My sandisk m240 can be played normally, but when I try to see or delete my music on it, the files are missing. Plus, when I add music to my m240, the files aren't added to the music folder like they used to be, they are just put on the main folder of the player. I would like to atleast reset the player, but I don't know how. If you know how to reset the sandisk m240, or, if you know a better way to solve my problem, please tell me.
I can help with the reset problem. You have to format your player by right clicking on the Sansa
icon. This will erase all your files, so back them up if you wish to keep them. The folder stucture on the Sansa is not very logical and I still haven't figured it out. I have had my player almost 2 months now.
hope this helps.
I'm having the same problem. Somehow some whole file of music is permanantly embedded in there that you can fill on top of, and if you look in the mp3 it will show enpty when you perform the right click dump. There is a sansa updater to try. In my case, the actual disc was loaded into another pc but not this one. Therefore it worked fine w/media player but not to the extent of dumping the files loaded from the original machine. That's two solutions. Download the updater from them w/your sandisk connected or reload the original disc into the player. This solved my problem.
Hey i know how to fix this
it happened to me and i had no idea what was happening
you go to settings
then to one of the folders in there
i dont know what it is called but you can search until you find the one with the auto detect and MSC files on them. Make sure the tick is next to the MSC file and not the Auto Detect

There are 2 ways to delete music files. You can delete them from the player directly or using the computer. To delete music files directly from the Sansa player, follow these steps: 1. In playback mode, press Submenu button. 2. Select the Delete Song item.
To delete music files using the computer, follow these steps: 1. Connect your Sansa to the computer. 2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial connection. 3. Locate the folder where your music files are stored. 4. Highlight and delete the music files or folder.
I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.
You can connect the device to your computer and manage it thru "My Computer.
Open My Computer, then open the device (i.e. Sansa m240). Inside there is a Music folder, you can delete them from here. You can also drag songs here to transfer to the player.
If you are not able to see the "music" folder, you may need to enable "Hidden Files and Folders" on your computer.
Best of Luck.
