I have the same problem. The thing is that you need a software that coverts your Mp3s to .sat I have looked forever now but havet found one still. I belive that you have to use a japanees software(according to my friend I got mine from).

I came across this link, its a firmware / software update.

Install this and vista should recognize gigabeat.

Vista does not recognize ANYTHING, if you have XP then KEEP IT.

I have learned about vista's compatibility issues the hard way,

and now im stuck with Vista and lovely payments from Dell.

My experience is that sometimes the battery swells up and puts pressure on the keypad, causing it scroll. Get a new battery and the scrolling stops....

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

To those that are having problems with the MP3 player not being recognized. With Windows XP there is a little Icon on your Systems Tray that is called the "Safely Remove Harware Icon". Not using this Icon when unpluging MP3''s or zip drives can cause your PC to no longer recognize it. Toshiba Satellite laptops are known for this, others probably have the same problem. The solution here is to install the latest update of the ACPI Flash Bios for the Toshiba Satellite computer. Maybe this is also the problem with other PCs. To prevent these problems allways click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon before removing the MP3 player or any USB flash drive
1 With your m240 set to MSC and connected, go to "My Computer" and "right click" on the "Sansa m240" icon and select "Properties"
2 In that window, select the "Hardware" tab
4. In that "All Disk Drives" window, highlight the "Sansa m240" drive and select "Properties" (at the bottom)
5. In that window, select "Policies"
6. And there, set it to " Optimize for Quick Removal" and click OK and OK again
