Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Driver & recognition problem

My computer just does not recognise Sandisk M240. It asks for drivers when I try to install it, but it is supposed to be plug and play. I have tried numerous websites to try to fix this problem. It ended in being advised (via Sandisk) to change the registry of my computer. Surely there must be another way

I had this same problem, I had the MP3 player all packed up and ready to go back to the store, but I decided to try it again. It didn't work, but when I was pulling the CD out of the drive, I noticed that to the left side of the CD it says for more information or UPDATES!, go to So I did, got to the site, went to downloads, and right there it was Sansa Download Updater. Downloaded the updater, and it gave me step by step installation. Now my MP3 player works, and very well.
