Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)

Plug it in your PC .Open "My Computer" ;Right click on the Sansa m240 icon
Click on Format Choose FAT..not FAT32

Go into the file menus, open the music folder and chose delete all. I see if I can find the user manual with details.

I hv sansa clip 1gb - in which i have some songs i.e aprox.850mb and that cannot be seen in my pc in sansa clip as a drive g.how to delete songs and add songs , is there any driver of software or...


1. First, check your device setting up on MTP or MSC? Turn on device, go to "settings" , press down or up to find "USB Mode", you can see the check mark at MTP (auto detect) or MSC mode. Change to another usb mode.
2. You have 2 ways to delete songs:
2.1. Delete songs by device: play songs, press down (sub menu) until you meet "delete song", select it and yes
If you delete all items in device: Settings, Format, and yes
2.2. Delete songs by computer: plug device to computer, double click on device icon, Music folder, and delete songs you want. If you don't see songs in there, unplug the device from pc, and then change USB mode, and plug device to pc to delete.
Good luck

Music not synchronized


Try going to the actual file the music is in on your computer, then right click Send To sansa 250. If that doesn't work look on the options menu for USB mode and change it, that works on my 280.

I can't find my music folder


I would just update the firmware and start over from scratch.
The "Plays for Sure" system only recognizes protected WMA's. The other mode will not allow you to play music period. I've never heard of anyone having that problem with that particular player, but if what you are saying is true, then you will be forced to use only protected WMA files - which means you can never let your Rhapsody or other music service subscription expire. And if there is ever a problem, you will have to delete all and reload.
As an experiemnt load at least one Mp3 format file into the player, and see if it plays fine. If yes, then only use Mp3 files from here on out. They are less problematic.

Loading protected songs onto MP3 player


What I would recommend you to do is to delete the songs that are not playing for the device then transfer them back...Your SanDisk Sansa does not allow you to delete files from within the player.
Instead I recommend that you follow the steps below to delete the music
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.

Deleting files from Sansa e250


The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD: 1. Set the e250 to MSC mode. 2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector. 3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.) To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
