    I bought a sansa clip, loaded the disc that came with it, then spent 2 hours on-line with customer support. I made sure i was running wmplayer 11, and verified windows....my computer 'recognizes' the clip when plugged in, but my Rhapsody page refuses to see it........

    I got a sansa clip as a gift 2 days ago, but i can't figure out how to put music into it. I already tried simply converting other music types to mp3, but windows real player keeps saying it isn't compatible. How do i put music into it?

I use Limewire. If you haven't heard of it, you should check it out. You just simply install the program and download as much music as you want, for free.

Visit www.limewire.com for more info. You may just install basic (it should be free).

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable.For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.Click on this link for instruction on converting musicfiles to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

How do I delete 30mbs from my sansa clip the message is: not enough space for music DB. Please free 30mbs


Hello,

The player needs free memory to build its database for playlists to playback.

To free memory on your player:
1. Connect to a computer
2. Save a backup of (preferred all) songs to a location on the computer
3. Delete some files off the player to free at least 30 MB memory in the Sansa Clip

Use the manual for how to connect and delete music files.

I just got a sansa clip 1gb mp3 player & need help on everything!


The Sansa Clip is not compatible with iTunes. You will have to get your music from another music service, preferably one that gives you the songs in mp3 format instead of AAC format (although it will accept WMA's, the DRM-protection system on most WMA's will give you problems down the line, especially if you cancel the music service that you got them from - songs in mp3 format will be usable even after you've cancelled your music service subscription).

Hi,
Make sure the device is set to MSC mode under Settings on the device (Menu --> Settings --> USB Mode --> MSC )
If you already have music on your PC, follow the instructions provided in the following link to transfer music over to your Sansa Clip.

I have a sansa clip mp3 player and I lost the disk???


It should be recognized by your computer. I did a search for drivers and they are not needed for this model.
For music, After the computer has recognized it has been plugged in. Start, My Computer, and it should show up in there as (my sansa or sansa clip) something along those lines. 
You may open it and drag your music files into the accroding folders inside the device.
OR You may use Windows Media Player 11 to Sync to your Mp3 Player. The Sansa Clip has problems with Windows Media Player 10 so i would reccomend using Media Player 11 to sync.
For future help or more questions please comment,
I hope this has helped :)

Cannot connect


Did you run the installation CD before you plugged the mp3 player into the computer? If not, disconnect the mp3 player from computer, uninstall all the Sansa software on your computer, and reinstall the software from the installation CD.

If the uninstall/reinstall fails, update the firmware on the player from Sandisk's website.

Good luck!

Downlaoding music from my saved files on my computer


Hi! First of all the songs must be in .mp3 format to work on an mp3 player. If you got them from Itunes they may be mp3's already, but if not download Free wma mp3 converter here and install it (Vista compatable). Good Luck!

I have music that I downloaded from itunes to my computer and have saved in a file. I can not seem to get the songs now to download on to my sansa clip MP3 player??????????


The Sansa Clip is completely incompatible with iTunes format. You will need to get either 1) another music service - preferably in Mp3 Format, or 2) buy a different mp3 player.

I can't believe people haven't figured this out by now, but I suspect they are being aided and abetted by cashiers that are "guessing" - 80% of mp3 players are incompatible with iTunes.
