My Sansa m230 MP3 player won't turn on. When I plug it into a computer, it turns back on. I am not able to listen to my music.
I called tech support and downloaded the latest firmware updater and used it. It said that there wasn't any updates. Can anyone help me?

Assuming the computer puts out enough juice, yes. Not all USB ports do.
Plug it in, and the Sansa should say "Charging" if it is charging. If it doesn't, try a different USB port if possible. If your computer has ports on the front/side and on the back, the back ones are more likely to put out sufficient power.
whenever i turn on my sansa m230 mp3 player, it displays the message, "not enough space for music DB, please free 8mb." And so i plug it into my friends computer and when i open the music folder on the device, its empty, even though it says that there is quite a bit of space used up. Do you have any answers?.
Same thing happened to me... try this...
1) disconnect all cables
2) turn power on (hold menu button until screen lights up)
3) Press "menu"
4) scroll down to "settings"
5) scroll down to "USB"
6) select "MSC" (default is probably auto detect - which I think there's a conflict with)
7) turn power off (holding the menu button down)
8) connect USB to computer and hopefully start loading files
I bought 2 of the 512 models, one didn't work... so I took it back and had to buy a 2gig model... got home and it didn't work! I tried the above for the new one and at least the computer recognizes it! Everything seems to work fine...for now...
your not using the correct program! you use windows media players. its most recommeded from sandisk. go to the sync section and on the side bar there'll be like a read snasa m30 right click on it clcik format media. then go to the sync section and drag the files u want in to the lil box and click sync
