Question about SanDisk Sansa m240 MP3 Player

Can't find downloads on Sansa player

I've downloaded podcasts using windows explorer & it shows on my computer as downloaded, but it will not show up on the Sansa screen. Can someone help with this? I've tried re-naming the files, but this didn't fix the problem. In the past, I've downloaded podcasts this way & it worked, but it won't now. It also won't let me delete the old podcasts, although it shows on my computer as deleted, the files still show on the Sansa.

For directly downloading podcasts, you can use online audio downloader. Just copy and paste the URL you found, and then click download to make it.
If you don't want to miss the audio or just want higher quality audio, you can try to record the podcast. Just find an audio recorder that could download audio from website online and computer itself. Click start button to start recording and click it again to stop recording. You can also set bitrate and other parameters for your recordings.

Am getting very frustrated with my Sansa Clip. I download a podcast or music onto my Clip, yet the Clip tells me that the folder is empty, but when i plug it into my computer again, all the downloads are...

what is the size of the podcast mp3? Many podcasts don't actually send you an mp3 of the podcast, but a link embedded in the mp3 that streams the podcast to your player of choice. (twit does this, fairly frustrating) if the mp3 is not very large, that is probably why.

My Red Sansa Clip 4GB will not show on any computer i plug it into, It only charges and i have tried the auto detect, mtp, and msc settings. Any Suggestions?

See the section about the hot fix first----- If you are using Windows XP: you need the following. Windows XP SP2 or higher Windows Media Player 10 or higher
Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.
If you are using Windows Vista: If the player is seen in My Computer when using MTP mode, but not showing in Windows Media Player. Download the hotfix from-->>> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939211. Run the hotfix.
Refresh the players driver Connect the Sansa player to the PC The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full. If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is readily available. Ensure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub. - If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the screen is just not working.
If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem. Check under Device Manager 1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage. 2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.
NOTE: Sansa MP3 Players can connect to your computer in MSC or MTP mode. Exceptions are Sansa Connect and Sansa Express which only use MTP mode. MTP mode is the recommended and default method for Sansa Players when used with Windows OS. The Sansa player will show up on Device Manager's right pane as: 1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC) 2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode)
If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers. Refresh the drivers 1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall. 2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.
NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.
Connect using MSC mode Connecting in MSC mode will help determine if there is a problem with MTP mode or with the Auto Detect mode feature of the player. You can use Forced MSC mode or switch the player settings to MSC.
Instructions to connect in Forced MSC mode are listed here: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61
Instructions to switch player to MSC mode are listed here: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/207
If the player is detected in MSC mode but not when set to MTP mode, try to update or reinstall the Sansa firmware
NOTE: Sansa Express and Sansa Connect do not have MSC mode. For Sansa Connect you can try reinstalling the firmware using the Connect Recovery Mode.
Additional troubleshooting notes: If you have replaced the Sansa Player and you still have problems getting it to recognize in the computer, then you may need to try some additional troubleshooting. - Try connecting on another computer. - Try using a different USB cable - Try connecting to the back USB ports which may supply better power. - If only MTP mode is not working, try reinstalling Windows Media Player For Windows XP try also download and install the MTP Porting Kit

I am running Windows XP. I have 2 problems. (1)I rip CDs using itunes having set the default format to MP3. Then I use windows explorer to move the albums to the music file of the sansa clip. However, some...

1) You need to set the "tags" in the music files ... artist, album and song name. I would suggest opening up the files in MediaMonkey, which will let you edit the tags.

2) After you download the podcasts with MediaMonkey, you need to find out where they exist on your disk. Then, copy them to your Clip using Windows Explorer.

How do you download a podcast on the sansa mp3 clip?

Hi wyostardust,

There is a workaround to not use iTunes to subscribe to and download your favorite podcasts. This workaround is called Juiced : http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/ and it is free. Once you have used Juice to download all your podcasts you can then transfer them (the mp3s) to your Sansa Clip the same way you do with your music.

Regards,
-SHG

Deleting unwanted songs

The Sansa M200 series devices do not allow deletion of downloaded content directly from the device. You must connect he device to PC/Mac via USB to delete downloaded content. You will also need to use media software such as Windows Media Player, Rhapsody, iTunes, etc.. to see all of the music content on the player to be able to delete the songs you don't want. (i.e. just viewing the device in Windows Explorer might not show everything that is on he player.)

Placing mp3 podcasts in the podcast folder

Create a folder on your View (in MSC mode) named "PODCAST". DO NOT put it in your MUSIC folder, but in the root directory. Place your Podcasts in there and disconnect your Sansa. After it refreshes you'll find your Podcasts under "Music\Podcasts" on your View :)

Sansa Clip with invisible podcast files

The podcats that aren't recognized may be in AAC instead of Mp3 format. Use Media Monkey or some other free software to convert them to mp3 format.

Sansa Clip Audiobook Question

Once I downloaded the newest firmware the audiobooks folder started showing up in the windows file explorer. So now I don't have to worry about using media player or anything else. I just plug in my sansa clip, open windows file explorer and drag the folders (1 for each disk) onto my player (into the audiobooks folder).

Here's the link for the download. If it doesn't come up you might want to reformat your sansa clip.
