SOURCE: Problem synching Sansa m240

Adriva, Why stay away from the m240 series? Just curious. However, I am in 100% agreement with you. I own 3 Sansa's because at the time I couldn't afford anything better. Out of the three only the original, a SDMX1 - 512 R, still works correctly. My main complaint about the SDMX1 is the amount of time it taks to FFW or RWD. It may be ok for a 3 minute song, but I listen to a lot of audio books and you can just about forget trying to find your place. You try to FFW and it takes FOREVER to advance just a few minutes. Then, because of the way the controls are set up you wind up jumping 10 tracks ahead. Why do I have to keep FFW or RWDing? Well the SDMX1 can never seem to remember where it was when I turned it off. Now this is hard enought to do when you are sitting and listening to it, but you can forget about doing it while driving. The next two Sansa I got ( thinking they would be better) were the m240s. I got one for me and one for my son. Mine died with in 6 months. Will not do anything. New battery makes no difference. So I took my sons after he complined about it not working. The problem with his is that when it is turned OFF, it drains the battery ( A BRAND NEW BATTERY) in about 5 minutes. You can listen to it for hours but turn it off and leave the battery in and it is dead within minutes. Also I was able to listen to my older SDMX1 (512m) for about 16 hours with a new battery, I get nothing like that with my m240. Now my m240 will not let me put new books on it. It keeps saying it is full. I tried using it like a HD and put some books on there. Then when I turned it on, the books didn't show. So I set it to be a music device and put some on and had no better luck. I couldn't remove the books, couldn't copy new stuff on. I heard there was a way to do a HARD holding down a button combo and turning it on. Has anyone heard of this? Can anyone suggest a solution to my problems (Short of an ipod?) I got the sansa because they are cheap and I got what I paid for. I've just had a sandisk thumbdrive go bad. I think I've made my last Sandisk purchase ever. Can anyone suggest an MP3 player for between $70-$100 with 1-2 gigs of space? Thanks Modgod

SOURCE: computer willnot recognize sansa clip, Begins

ok, look turn your device on and select settings, next you want to find usb mode (wording may vary). select this option and change this setting to msc, i have a 2 gig clip and this seemed to work......if this doesnt work try the mpt setting under the same "usb mode" option.....also when putting songs on your device, make sure the files are in wma format(windows media audio) to do this , see the songs properties, ussually done with a right click on the songs shorcut or logo.....if the file is in mp3 format, open the song in windows media player and open the library tab, highlight what you want to put on your device right click and select send to .....then select audio converter, convert the files then send them to your clip.

I know its a silly question but can anyone please tell me the step-by-step process to transfer songs to my sansa c150 MP3 player......... Thanks

  • Step 1:Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer.

  • Step 4:Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer’s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player.
  • Step 5:Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list.
  • Step 6:Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.
Tips & Warnings
  • When properly connected, the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player displays a USB Connected message on its LCD screen.

Frozen at start update

The secret to treating brain damage on the c150 is to definitely use the <> download. This is a *.rar file and you need to also download the 7zip freeware program to extract the contents of the file to a folder. Read the *.txt message in the folder and follow the directions and you will be back in business. Your c150 will probably occasionally have a relapse so keep the folder on your computer. This works!
