How to download music to i pod?

So how do I download music to my Ipod?

Downloading music from your hard-drive to you Ipod is done with the program called Itunes. This program comes with your Ipod purchase or can be downloaded at The software is vital because it not only allows you to purchase from the popular Itunes music service, it's also the only way you can transfer songs onto your Ipod.

So let's look into the Itunes software, and more specifically, the Itunes library that is used to transfer songs from your hard-drive to your Ipod. You'll find it on the left hand panel of the program. Your library contains all your songs, movies, and podcast that you want to transfer over. Through the Itunes library, you'll be able to use their drag-and-drop feature for easy and fast transfer to your Ipod.

Before we move one to the next step, it should be made clear that songs that are downloaded from P2P clients might not show up on the Itunes library. You must add them manually, because you will not be able to transfer any songs until they are integrated into your Itunes library. Doing this is simple. Click on file>add file to library, locate the file you want to add, and press enter to complete the process. There is also the 'add folder to library' function which allows you to transfer a whole folder of songs into the Itunes library. This is quite handy to have if most of your songs are stored in one place on your hard drive.

Alright, let's get back on track here. You know the proper steps in which to keep your Itunes library updated now, and the last step is a breeze. Plug in your Ipod to the USB port in your computer, and you'll notice the new option to add songs from your Itunes library to the Ipod. Click and drag your files into the Ipod transfer screen and then you're done! You're now ready to explore the wonderful world of music without the burden of a large cumbersome computer to haul alongside you!

Loading itunes library into my sansa view ... how?

You will have to use windows media player to load your songs onto your mp3 player. Open windows media player and see if the songs you want are there (they should be). If not, go to itunes and right click on a song and click on a option that should say open file location and go there. Then transfer all of your songs to your windows media player and transfer them to your mp3 player. Then it should work. If you need any more help, ask.

Cannot delete the songs on mp3

I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'

1)Plug in
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else

Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really,  the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device. 
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.

Make sure your device is under MTP do that go under the menu settings, usb and device mode and change it to MTP

Assuming that you have windows media player 10.
1. Creating a selection in Windows Media Player
Launch Windows Media Player 10. Click on the Library tab then Add to Library > Add folder and select a folder (e.g. compilation of favourite songs, converted CD, folder of downloaded songs, etc.) from your hard drive (See Image 1). Click OK to confirm your selection. Your folder data will appear in the main window. Repeat the procedure for your other albums.

You can also do this by clicking File > Add to library > Add folder.

When your folders are ready, click-hold to select all your songs and then drag them to the window on the left, as indicated. Select the entire list again and click Now Playing List and select Synch List (See Image 2).

2. Transferring your selection to your MP3 player
Click on the Synchronize tab. Connect your MP3 player to your computer, your player will be automatically recognized by the computer and synchronization (that is file transfer) will begin immediately.

3. Transferring your MP3s to flash memory
Insert the memory card from your MP3 player or MP3 phone into your computer's card reader and open My Computer. Windows XP will automatically recognize your memory card and its icon should appear next to the other icons.

Click on its icon to open your memory card.

Select the MP3 file to transfer. If you want to transfer several files at once, control-click each individual file. In the File Manager window, click Copy File and select the destination folder.

Someone else mentioned this problem....I thought it might be that some files have different artist names (or vice versa?). You really have to keep a clean library with proper summary fileds (artist, title, track number, etc.). First of all, you should always be using MTP mode (USB mode in Sansa player settings). MTC mode is problematic. Are you using WMA or mp3 files? The other person had the same problem using WMA files....maybe using mp3s would fix this.
