First change the setting of the player to MSC (SETTINGS>USB MODE>MSC) then connect the player to the computer. Open My Computer window and you should see the player right-click on the player and choose format. Click start to continue formatting the player and it should erase all the files in the player. :D

Sansa mp3 player wont come back on turn it off while still connected to computer usb chord


Try this? 1.Push the hold switch towards the headphone jack so you see orange
2.Press and hold record on the left of the player
3.With record still being held down, plug into the computer
4.Once you see welcome to recovery mode on the screen of the player, let go of record
At this point you can reload the manual firmware by copying the firmware files to the detected removable disk.
Firmwares- Version 1 Version 2
Download the correct version or else it will render your device useless.Version can be found on the back plate at botton right.. Extract the downloaded file and transfer the contents to removable disk detected.After transferring,disconnect the player and let it upgrade the firmware

When i first got my sandisk 4gb and connected it it showed me two folders-''internal disk'' and another one/i filled up my entire mp3 in the second one and suddenly now when i connect it to my computer it...


Transfer Music Check out instructions below.... 3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder. Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player). 4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.
Maybe you did option 3 and that's the reason your files not showing up. Check it properly and give me a feedback.

"Not enough space for music DB. Please free 90MB"


What has happened is that when you connected the device to the computer if automatically downloaded everything on your media files thus filling up your MP3 player
You need to go in and delete the files you do not want. click the bottom part of the disk or dial and it will show a menu to delete FIRST,
you must let the battery run down(disconnect the cable and when the battery has discharged, you can plug it back in to recharge, then you can work with it to delete some of those files that are overloading you device This happened to me and this was the only way to unlock it when it locked up

Do not use any of the supplied pc software on your mac.  Plug the player into your mac using the usb cable supplied.  It should appear on your desktop.  If it doesn't it's the player itself.  If it appears just drag the songs from your music folder onto the mp3 player.  I've had this same problem.  My daughters each received one for christmas.  One worked and one didn't.

No files on sansa m 240 but appear on computer


Try formatting your mp3 player which might fix this problem. Also do some updates from the manufacturers website. This may be a known bug which your mp3 players manufacturer may have found and made a new driver version for.

http://www.sandisk.com/driverdownload/index.asp

To format follow these steps below:

First go to "My Computer" - now look for your mp3 player usually named under for example "Removable Disk F", when you've found it "Right-Click" on it then click on "Format", when format is complete try after that.

Any further problems leave a comment on this page and i will get back to you.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

Player doesn't display some files


where did you get the songs from? make sure the files are in mp3 file format not in another format and make sure they are playing properly before transferring them to the player. The player can support MP3 and WMA files. IF you are sure they are mp3 format the player using USB mode and then retransfer them to the player.

Error when trying to copy files to or delete files from ilo 1gb mp3 player


The Walmart/Asda mp3 players in the uk have the same problem, I have the formatting software on the cdrom that came with it and it doesn't work 'Surprise'. The problem normally happens when you try to either upload mp3's more than one at a time or delete all at the same time causing a file the folder to become corrupt and stop everything. Is there possibly a factory reset menu on the player, if not you will have to search the internet for your manufacturer to see if they have an on-line formating tool.
