Sansa m240 - Is it possible to download files from my sansa to my PC? If not why?

My PC’s hard drive went bad and with it I lost ALL my music. Now the only music I have are the ones in my sansa m240 which now I would like to save them in my “new” hard drive.

You should be able to drag & drop them from your player to your computer. Same as putting them on the player; only in reverse.

If the songs are not showing when you plug it to the computer you can try switching USB modes. MTP vs MSC
