I have lost the system files and directories on my SanDisk m240, firmware 4.1.08E.
When I format in MSC mode in Win XP (following the how-to video), my player
remains blank. I can make recordings and play these, but they will not be visible
from the computer. Audio files (mp3) that I copy to the player will not show up
in the player (I get “No Files” in the Play Music menu). This state persists when
I reset to factory setting in the player menu, and when I reformat (again) and
power the player off and on.
I suspect that I caused this by erasing the partion table on the player: I wasn’t
aware that there could be more then one partition, hence one time when I
formatted I deleted all partitions and created a new partition, then formatted
to FAT32. Is there a “hidden partition” on m240? If so, is there a way to restore
