Question about SanDisk Sansa c240 MP3 Player
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.

Sansa firmware version 1 of sansa c240 can support only micro sd cards of maximum 2gb,if you want to use micro sd hc cards(4gb &above) you have to install ROCKBOX firmware,it claims to support micro sd hc cards upto 32gb though maximum available micro sd hc card at present is 16gb,for more information on how to install rockbox firmware on sansa c200 series go to ROCKBOX website- www.rockbox.org

I'm pretty sure because this model is old, it is only compatible with up to 2GB standard microSD cards. HC (high capacity) ones or other SD cards with new technology won't work.
of course I can't even get my standard 2 GB one to sync in windows media, or appear in winamp, so i'm struggling as well.

Ah yes I have dealt with this even after the last firmware update. I contacted them and they told me the max should not exceed 2 GB it will not recognize anything higher. It takes awhile to load because it is gathering info from the card and checking that it is compatible. Since you are using 4GB it is not being recognized. 1 option that might help is erase the card (re-format) put it in the Sansa player then connect to your pc. Open computer (my computer) or if it automatically opens check the storage if It is recognized it will properly display external storage and the space.
Or you can open windows media player open syn pane and browse to see if it shows up there. If it does not show then once again the unit is not recognizing it.
