    I have exactly the same problem, the entire device has been wiped, and I can no longer sync files to it! I have reset it but nothing happens.

    SOLUTION!!!
    I know how to fix it, go on settings, then common settings and click on format. It will totally wipe the device, including the corrupted file. Try syncing music again and hopefully it should work!
    Good luck!

I started to have the same problem today and was also getting a "Library Error Encountered...." message. I was able to resolve it by Formatting my player. I lost all my data and settings but now I can put music on it again. To format your player go to the Home menu-Settings-Common Settings-Format

SOURCE: album art does not transfer with music on my sandisk mp3 player

Go to the sytem Settings menu and go to this option:
Display Art in Lists
Enabling this feature displays a small image of the song album cover, audiobook
cover, and photos when scrolling through list of these items.
1. Scroll down to Display Art in Lists and select it.
2. Use thumbwheel to switch between On (enable) and Off (disable).

If changing this option to enable fials to resolve the issue, the solution is a bit painful: You will have to manually add the artwork to each single song within an album in Windows Media Player 11, delete the song that is missing the artwork off your sansa, and re-add the songs again after you are done manually ediitng the artwork.

Manually add album art (WMP 11)
1. Run WMP.
2. Click Library on the top bar.
3. Select and right-click the file(s) you wish to update and select Advanced Tag Editor.
4. Click the Picture tab, then click Add.
5. Navigate to the image you wish to use for album art then click Open.
6. Click Apply then OK.

HOW DO i DELETE WHATS ON MY WALKMAN AND i CAN'T OR DON'T KNOW HOW TO DOWNLOAD MUSIC


1. Plug the MP3 player into the USB port. Open Windows Media Player, which will recognize that the device is plugged in and register under the "Sync" tab at the top.
2. Click on the "Sync" tab and the library that is on your MP3 player will be displayed.
3. You can select individual songs or albums for deletion. Simply right click on the song or album to be deleted and scroll down to the "Delete" option.
4. After selecting "Delete," another window will come up which says "Are you sure you want to delete [title of song]?" There are two options at this point--you can delete from the library only or from the library and your computer. Select the one or the other and click "OK." The song will be deleted. The change will be displayed within the library onscreen.
5. When you unplug the player from the port, the library will adjust the files to reflect the change. The player will say "configuring library" or some other message to that effect. Once this has finished, the main screen will be displayed. Depending on the model of the MP3 player, there may be a message stating "library updated."

Downloading music to my MP3 player, how do I do it. I have the music on my computer and I move to the MP3 player but when I disconnect it does not display on my MP3 player


For transfers to Sansa Clip see page 11 of the pdf manual [page 9]:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/CLIP/CLIP_UM_English.pdf

When using the drag and drop method in Windows
music has to be dropped in the Music folder of the player.

Using Windows Media Player 11:

In Library or Sync mode:
1. Create a playlist e.g. "MyPlaylist"
2. Put music in the playlist
3. Save the playlist

In Sync mode and the player having connection:
4. Move the playlist e.g. "MyPlaylist" under / to the device
5. Start synchronizing with Start Sync
6. Wait until al files have been transferred:
a message appears when you can disconnect .

When you need more help just post a comment.

I have this problem too. Found that if you go to the folder that has the music file in it, right click on each problem file and select 'open with -> " and choose Sonic stage, then it will import the file. Next problem may be that it imports it with 'unknown' as the file name but if you then right click on the file within SonicStage and select 'Get CD info' it will find it. Tedious if you have several dozen/hundred files that won't import I'm afraid...
