SanDisk Sansa - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
SanDisk Sansa C240 1 GB MP3 Player only shows half empty battery picture on screen and wont turn on. So it needs fixing.
Question edited for a lot more clarity.
Question moved from Misc to model category.
Replace the internal Li-Po battery, but try a reset first.
If your Sansa player is freezing, not charging or not turning on, the first thing to try is a reset of the unit. This will normally clear any temporary condition that may cause the player to freeze or not shut off completely, it's a bit like when your PC crashes and you need to re-start it to clear the error.

Download the Audible Manager software from http://www.audible.com/sw

You cannot - this player is incompatible with iTunes. You can either convert your iTunes songs to mp3, or get a different music service. Even though there are a few exceptions, most mp3 players other than the iPOd are not compat with iTunes (look for an AAC logo on the packaging to determine if an Mp3 player si compatible with iTunes).
How do you set up a playlist and sucessfully
To create an M3U playlist
On your PC, create a new empty .txt document using word pad, type nothing but save the file as a .txt.
go in to my computer -->> explore and find the file and rename the .txt document so it has an m3u file extension (example: my_list.m3u).
Open the m3u file with wordpad, notepad, or a text editor.
In the first line at top of the page type #EXTM3U.
After the first line, start listing your music files, copy and paste the song names , (with extension ie .mp3). One music file name each line.
Exit the text editor and save the m3u file once you are finished.
Drag and drop the M3U playlist to the Sansa player's MUSIC folder, your done if it works.
Unable to download files from apple itunes
ITunes does not support this player. To put music on the player you must copy the files from the folders where the music files are on your computer to the device mounted on your computer.
Retrieval of deleted voice recorded file
maybe, there are programs that retrieve deleted files, but sadly you need to buy them.
this only works if you havn't added any new voice recording (or a lot of voice recordings) or if you havn't reformatted your player.
I cannot delete songs from Sansa E260
Ok, Sansa made it a little difficult this time,
"Connect your player, of course. Go to "My Computer" > "Sansa e260".
There are hidden files. To unhide go to "Tools" (located on the menu
bar) > "Folder Options..." > hit the "View" tab > select "Show
hidden files and folders". You will see more folders to appear in a
faded color. Click on the "MUSIC" folder. Click on the artist, then
album then select the song, right click and down to delete." --Yahoo Answers
What are you using to load music. If you have access to Windows Media Player 11 it is very simple.
First open WMP11, make sure your player is connected to the computer with the USB cable. At the top of WMP11 click Sync
the player will sync with WMP11, drag and drop music and click sync, very simple. I have a Sansa View and it is very simple, This basically works with most MP3 players.
Unable to download music
Tubidy.com is a website that allows you to download free music online. Here you can download all your searches (songs or videos) without any problems. There is a search bar for songs so you can find your favorite songs and videos. To use tubidy, you do not need to create an account. However, I am sharing a guide - https://webslosh.com/tubidy-download-mp3-videos/
where you'll find the step by steps guide to downloading music from Tubidy.com. All you have to do is follow the given steps properly.
Hi my sansa shaker wont play music
The Sansa Shaker ONLY plays MP3's, I downloaded a bunch of .wma files and kept getting the uh-oh so I put on an mp3 I had a voila! it played. Bummer though. Guess I gotta figure out how to convert my music files for my daughter, or pitch this thing and buy one that will play any media file.
