Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

"No Song" is displayed on SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 player even though music is loaded?

The songs ripped from CD are not in the right format. In Windows Media Player, highlight the Rip tab, click the black arrow under the Rip tab, select Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3. Now, re-rip the songs. Before you transfer these tracks to the player, make sure you delete the tracks that are on the mp3 player now, or else Windows Media Player wil ltell you that the tracks are already there. Now, transfer the newly-ripped Mp3 tracks to your Sansa. Should be good to go.
This will help.Good Luck

Downloading of CD's to MP3 Player


Are you trying to synch tracks directly from a CD. If you are, you first have to rip the tracks. In windows Media player, you first need to setup the type of file you want to rip to (MP3 in this case). Right click on the top bar of the WMP and select Tools|Options. Select the Rip tab and under the rip settings, change the format to MP3. Select the quality you want (higher quality means less music can be stored on your unit). 192 kbps is a good setting. Now, click OK or apply as appropriate to get out of the menu. Insert your CD and click on the RIP tab of WMP. Your CD's tracks should automatically come up with checks marks beside them. Start the RIP process. Once it is complete, you can then drag the newly ripped files from your library to the Walkman and they should be synched.

I can't download music from audio CDs onto my MP3 player


  1. Insert the CD into the computer.
  2. Open Windows Media Player.
  3. Click the "Rip" button at the top of the audio program. Then, click the arrow directly underneath this arrow. Several options will appear. Choose "Format." More options will appear. Select "Mp3."
  4. Click the box found to the right of the "Album" heading near the top of the program. Once you do, every box to the left of the songs on the CD will be selected.
  5. Choose "Start Rip" at the bottom of the program. The CD will be saved onto the computer as MP3 files and added to the Windows Media Player library.
  6. Plug the MP3 player into the computer.
  7. Click the "Sync" button to the right of the "Rip" button at the top of Windows Media Player.
  8. Select "Songs" under "Library" in the left column of the software program.
  9. Locate the songs on the CD you wish to add to the MP3 player. Select those songs and drag them over to the "Burn List" column on the right side of the media player.
  10. Click "Start Sync" at the bottom of the "Burn List" column. The CD will be placed onto the MP3 player.

I dont have any music to start loading my mp3.How do i get music?


Two options:
1) Sign up for an online music service, or
2) Load songs directly from a CD

When choosing an online music service, find one that only gives you the songs in Mp3 format - all other formats will be either incompatible with your player or will give you headaches down the road. The other value of getting an mp3-only service is that you will be able to use the songs later if you decide to let your music service subscription lapse. Rhapsody has an Mp3 Only service, but be very cautious - Rhapsody has about 6 different subscription levels, and only one of them is an Mp3 Only service. There used to be dozens of other choices besides Rhapsody, but not anymore - most other major music service either folded, went with a DRM-protected WMA format, or went with an AAC format (iTunes).

To load songs directly from a CD, use Windows Media Player. Open Windows Media Player 11 --> run your mouse over the Rip tab --> click on the arrow that appears under the Rip tab --> Select "Format" --> change to mp3. Then put your CD in the computer's CD drive and click on the Rip tab -> it will convert the songs on your CD to mp3 format so that you can load the songs onto your mp3 player.

Good luck!
