Can memory be increased on this model

Wondering if memory can be increased from 512M to say 4G on this MP3 player?

m200 series[edit]

The Sansa m200 series (m240, Gray)

The Sansa m200 series are digital audio players that have been released in four models: m230 (512MB), m240 (1 GB), m250 (2 GB), and m260 (4 GB). The players have a built-in FM tuner and microphone, and supports MP3, WMA, WAV, and Audible (.aa) audio file formats. It comes in different colors (one for each memory size) such as blue, black, pink, and gray, and uses a single AAA battery for power. There were four different hardware revisions of this player. The first three revisions used a Telechips TCC770 SoC for a CPU and DSP, and the fourth using a chip developed by Austria Microsystems and also used in the Clip, Fuze and later e200/c200 models.

natebfree what @mayer is trying to say is that you cannot do that. Your memory consist of BGA IC's that are soldered to the circuit board. Unless you would have the right tools, the right stencil, and the right NAND memory IC, the answer is no.


Thanks. I thought this was the case but you never know someone might have upgraded the memory chip and wrote about it. So thought I would ask.


If any of the people answering bothered to even glance at the disassembly photos, they would see the storage ICs are in fact on a daughter board at the fat end of the device and NOT BGA ICs on the main board. I have a 512MB unit in front of me, and it uses an IC marked "Samsung 540 K9K4G08U0M PCB0" mounted to the underside of the daughter board, facing the main board, with an unpopulated footprint on the top. I assume this would be so they could just pop a different storage IC daughter boards on the same main board for the different capacities offered. In theory, if your soldering skills are up to it, you could find another Samsung memory IC (possibly from an old camera) and pop it in to see if it sees the extra space. However, it is possible the devices firmware may prevent it from seeing the extra IC, I havent tried it myself yet, but intend to if I happen across a matching IC. Trust people who actually have hands on a device over people who just blindly copypasta the marketing...


Upon further inspection of the storage daughter board there are tiny pads labeled for the intended capacity. The pads are labeled 512M 1G 1G 512M 1G 1G. At a guess Id say it indicates this model (the blue m230) is capable of 2GB total capacity and the firmware checks the continuity across these pins to check which daughter board is in it. The question remains, are the pins just dead shorted (there are no markings on the tiny components bridging the pins, but I assume 0ohm resistors)? Which combination indicates the capacity (there doesnt seem to be a conclusive pattern on mine being a 512MB model the top and slightly inset one is populated and the lower one in the middle between 1G and 512M has one, but that could be for something else as the 512M seems to indicate the pads next to the board edge)? And will the device display a different model number if it detects those pads jumpered or larger IC (I suspect if not jumpered the device wont even try to talk to the other IC)?
