Update: Woah! I overlooked the price on this listing. I paid $30 for mine several years ago because $100+ for an ipod was out of my price range. The current price for this model (over $100) is not worth it.
You install your CD, open ITunes, Click "import settings" & be sure you select MP3 from the drop down menu, then OK then click Import CD. Once downloaded, right click on any song in Itunes and select " show in windows explorer". From there, it was just a matter of dragging and dropping the songs I wanted into the Sansa. After they are downloaded, unplug the Sansa to finalize.
It automatically alphabetizes the songs in the Sansa and will play that way unless you select the "shuffle" option. While the unit is on, Click the small on/off button quickly. It will bring up the MENU .....then click the "repeat/ab quadarant to scroll down until you see "SETTINGS".. now hit the >> quadarant on the Sansa. You'll see PLAYBACK highlighted. Hit the >> quadarant again and select either the REPEAT, SHUFFLE or both. Use the << quadarant to get back to the Menu.
Under SETTINGS, you can also set your equalizer to play back in Rock, Jazz, Classical, Pop or Custom. You can also adjust your POWER settings for Auto Power Off from 5 min to 60min.........and set a sleep timer. Also under settings you have FM options, Contrast and display brightness, etc.
The reason I'm saying all this is the unit lacks a comprehensive owners manual. Only gives you a quick start, 2 page long sheet.
Sound is quite good ( after you set your equalizer to the type of music you like) and the only thing I did was to ditch the earphones that come with it. I didn't find them comfortable. I opted for a set of KOSS earbuds that have an INLINE VOLUME CONTROL slide which works out great for what I use it for.
I've read the complaints of some of the reviewers and so let me say upfront that I don't need or ask much from a player. If I can load the songs that I want and then be able to listen to them, in sequence or shuffled, I'm happy. The Sansa lets me do exactly that. I spent last weekend loading my MP3 collection into Windows Media Player 10 on my XP SP2 Home machine and rating the songs to get 1 GB worth of music with 4 stars.
Today I connected my newly arrived Sansa m240, copied my four-star listing to the sync playlist in Windows Media Player and downloaded the music to the Sansa without a hitch. It couldn't be simpler. I set the Sansa playback to shuffle and life is good.
Someone commented on the lack of documentation but the user guide available on the mini-CD or from the Sandisk website seems more than adequate. I've also heard the arm band and case is a bit cheesy. Perhaps, but it does what I want it to do which is hold the Sansa on my arm (the iPod Shuffle lived at cord's length in my pants pocket).
Finally, someone complained about the size. Well I'm not sure if there's anything smaller than the iPod Shuffle and I don't consider the Sansa much bigger. Given the display and the ability to swap out an AAA battery on the road, I'll take the Sansa over the Shuffle anyday.
The Sansa m240 is perfect for my needs, which are to have my music on the road in a light package, be able to see what's playing to appease my occasional curiosity and be able to use easily replaceable batteries. That's why I give it 5 stars.
