Make sure you have downloaded the right format to your player and you may have to compress its size.

SOURCE: Computer does not show MP3 player as connected and how to stop a song playing

If you installed the firmware update, you might have forgotten to change the device to MSC mode.. try going to settings>USB mode>MSC This should probably work.. to stop a song while its playing, click the |<< button while you have the screen with the current song. (you can pause a song on this same screen with the >|| button) If you have gone back to any of the menu screens, wait for a couple seconds and the player will automatically go back tot he song display screen so you can stop the song.

SOURCE: sansa clip 2mg fm radio not putting out sound

Go into the Settings menu of the Sansa, and change the region to "World" if you live outside the US, and change to "United States" if you live inside the US. Then, go back to the Radio mode and see if there is an icon that looks like a block (technically, a "Stop" sign) - if there is, press up on the clickwheel - it will get your radio off of pause mode. You radio should now work again.

How can i download songs?

So, you are intending to buy a new MP3 player. You have a wide variety of options to chose from. Creative, Coby, or an RCA MP3 player are just a few of them. It may even be a cell phone that doubles as an MP3 player, or a handheld game console such as Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable). The next important step is knowing, how to store music on my MP3 player, so that you can listen to music while you're commuting to and from work. This article will tell you how to download music onto MP3 device.

How to Download Songs from Internet?

The first step is to download music from the Internet. You can download songs from websites, who allow you to do it for free, or you may have to pay for the downloads. One of the ways is going to the Apple iTunes music store and pay 99 cents for every song you want to download.

Note that these songs are protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM (Digital Rights Management), so you can play the songs only on the Apple iPod, MP3 players. Other online stores encrypt the songs using the Windows Media Digital Rights Management (WMDRM) for security purposes. In order to decrypt and playback these files, you need the license key. If your license has expired, you will not be able to playback the files. Your MP3 player has to support WMDRM, in order to play these audio files.

You can also use a music subscription service such as eMusic. For $11.99 per month, you can download upto 24 songs a month. Other online music stores are Napster, MusicNow, URGE, and Yahoo! Music, which also allow music download, for a certain charge that you have to pay. The other way is to simply search for the song title and artist name on Google, and download the song from some website which allows you to do so for free. You can also download entire albums using BitTorrent.

How Do I Download Music onto an MP3 Player?

Another way to get MP3 files is by ripping your music CDs. In this way, you can convert your music to MP3 or WMA (Windows Media Audio) format. To do this, first insert the music CD into the computer's CD drive. Then you can rip your CD using Windows Media Player, to encode your music to the WMA format. Note that you should deselect the "Copy Protect Music" option so that your music files are compatible with most MP3 players.

The next step is to download music onto MP3 player. This means to copy or sync the songs you want, to your MP3 player. You must be wondering, how do I download songs to an MP3 player? You have to connect the MP3 player to the computer using a USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable. If your MP3 player has USB-MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) support, then even better. The Windows operating system will automatically detect the device, which will be shown as a USB flash drive.

You can find the device by going to "My Computer". Then you can copy and paste the files from your computer to the MP3 player. Otherwise, you can go to "Windows Explorer" and drag and drop the files to your MP3 player. Note that you need to drop the songs into the right directory, or the MP3 player will not be able to play the files.

You can also use the media management functions of Windows Media Player to transfer the files. Most MP3 players have special software available from the manufacturer to sync the files. For example, the Creative Zen MP3 player has the "Creative Media Explorer" to allow you to import the audio. Note that you may also have to install specific drivers for the MP3 player.

Most MP3 players can handle audio files in three formats: MP3, WMA, and WAV. There are also other file formats such as OGG and Apple's AAC (Advanced Audio Coding). MP3 players can also work as FM radio, so you can listen to radio stations that are available in your city. They can also record voice. You have to simply press the Record button, and speak to the device, and then playback what you have just said.

MP3 players also have other functions such as the ability to view photos and playback videos. Hope this article has helped you to learn, how to download music onto an MP3 player. Now, that you know how to copy music to MP3 players, you can enjoy listening to music whenever and wherever you want to.

My sansa clip won't play the songs I loaded on!

I've had this happen a couple of times in the last 6 months. You can get it to play again by chosing the format option from the settings menu. Of course, then you've lost everything you had loaded on to it. Download your music/audio books again and they will play.

Can't hear songs on my MP3

Are they .mp3's or .wma's? I haven't gotten .wma's to play, but .mp3's work fine.

You may also want to try creating a folder in the player that contains your music. Shouldn't matter, I know, but you know what that's worth.
