Re: uploading songs

Hi there!
Have you tried formatting the mp3 player?
If not, try this:

The mp3 player way for formatting:
By formatting on the mp3 player, it has be on either pause or stop button. Play button will not open the Initialize menu.
So go to menu, settings, scroll down to Initialize, and then click format. It should say OK?
click yes.
A quick Format done screen should pop up.

The computer way is much longer but cleaner.
Go to my computer.
Right click the removable disk (or it would say whatever you named it to be)
and click format.
A screen should come up with some info like capacity and File system.
Forget all that and click Start.
It should probably take 2 minutes.
Then try it once more.

Okay, after it's done formatting, go to Sonicstage and click the Transfer button. After a few moments it should recognize the mp3 player and display the memory.

If it says something way below 400MB, then you have a big problem. However, anything higher than 470MB is correct.

Now Sony say 345 songs and they are correct...that only if you use their conversion tool, which is in the transfer bar. You would have to convert all your songs into their ATRAC 3 form, and that usually takes about 1 Hr for at least 200 songs. (yea I know) But that's the only way you can stuff 345 songs into it.
I almost filled it to 350, but it was on 64 KBPs for their ATRAC3. Sound quality was not bad, but it wasn't that great.

Hopefully this helped!
Please contact me if you need any more help!

Why does my sansa clip says "not enough

It means your memory is full. Or you could be downloading to many songs for the device to upload. Try one song at a time.

I accidentally erased some software inside my imation.mp3 player

Check it for a reset button, or an internal reset somewhere. Read the book that came with it, I am sure it should tell you. Sorry I couldnt be more help.

Philips GoGear: delete music from library & are there any Unicode

Here's the deal:
Open the Philips Device Manager that came with the install cd, and do a Repair - this will erase everything so you can start over from scratch. This will also take care of your squares issue.

No dice on the playlist issue - sorry.

Next, you have to disable the auto sync feature in Windows Media Player to prevent it from auto-loading all of those songs/files that you don't want. by opening Windows Media Player, highlighting the Sync tab, clicking on the little black arrow to bring down the drop-down menu, clicking on "Set Up Sync" (make sure your mp3 player is connected to computer, or this option will not appear), and unchecking the box that says "automatically sync files to my device". This will give you manual sync instead.

The media device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected

Make sure you're not using the media with another program while you attempt to copy/sync it to your device.

Pretty late response, but meh.

Problem with transfering photos and videos to my Sandisk Sansa e26 and uploading music...HELP!

Everyone - install quicktime to get the right codecs to fix the video conversion issue

everyone else:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
