Sansa c240 and a 4 GB Micro SD HC card.

Right, well I have a Sansa c240 and a 4 GB Micro SD HC card, I'm not very tech savvy but I don't understand why it wont work. When I plug the card in it takes a while longer for my mp3 to get all loaded and started, but I find none of the music that's on the card can be found on the mp3 player.
This card works in my LG Rumour perfectly fine but eh. I've looked for some answers online and one site mentions something about installing some sort of firmware... but I haven't even the foggiest what that means.

Sansa C240 can only read SD cards that are NOT SDHC - that means it can only read up to a 2gb Micros SD card.

Have you tried another set of headphones? Normally the headphones wire is what goes, instead of the jack itself.
I've never opened one of those up, but I guess you could re-solder a new jack into it if you were adept at that sort of thing...Finding the right jack is the trick, I'm afraid.
I'd repost your question to the sandisk forum board here. Also see this list. It sounds like yours is a common complaint, and you may have good luck contacting sandisk technical support and getting it repaired...
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Open up your windows media player and click on the sync tab..your device should be listed there..and also it will show you all the songs you have in there...or you can just format the whole player..formatting will erase everything in that player...

computer does not recognize player when connected

I just bought a c240 mp3. When I connect it to my computer (Windows xp), the display on the Sandisk indicates "connected" and "writing". However, I have not been able to get the computer to recognize this device and I cannot download anything. Also, it does not seem to charge the battery; it seemed to give it about 1/3 charge with over 10 hours of plug in time. Help! Jim

If you go under settings there is a reset there. You should also be able to access your songs from your PC when u plug in your USB & could delete songs there. Might also want to look into getting a micro SD if u don't already have one. Good luck!

My sandisk c240 charges when plugged in but fails to be recognized on the computer

My sandisk c240 will charge, but it is not recognized when i plug it into the computer. No indication of "new hardware found" will pop up on my screen, it's not listed in the drives section of the computer and when i try to sync on media player nothing will show up in the 'device' field. I have tried different computers at work and different usb ports. Do i need to replace the usb cable? I am so sick of my songs..

There is quite possibly a problem with the USB cable or the USB port on the computer, but try this shortcut force to force the computer to recognize the Mp3 player: 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
