    Mike,

    Thanks for the info. I contacted a buddy who is very computer literate and he told me that the Itunes just won't download to a sandisk player because as you say, it is a different format. What I ended up doing is download CDEX to my computer and it works perfectly with the SanDisk player. I tried to change the mode to MSC but simply was not smart enough to make it work correctly.

Make sure the files are in MP3 or WMA file format. If they are in a different file format other than the ones above convert them because for audio those two are the file format that the sansa clip supports. Im not sure but iTunes convert songs to AAC or MP4 depending on the settings of it.

The best way to transfer songs tot he sansa clip is to change the mode of the player to MSC by going to Settings and then USB Mode. This would help detect the drive as a flash drive so you could copy and paste songs to it.

How do I download my 7GB iTunes music to my new Sansa 8G clip? Mac G3 OS 10.3.9.


As itunes will not or rather cannot see the Sansa clip you will need to do this manually.

Locate your itunes Folder
Example: Music/Itunes/Itunes media/Music
Once there simply copy and paste or drag and drop each album or artist folder into the clips Music folder

You could also install Windows Media Player for Mac
Once you have it installed
Clik on
Tools
Options
Clik on the Library Tab
Clik on Montitor Folders
Clik add and locate the Itunes/Itunes Media to add that path

Now whatever you add in itunes it will come across to WMP and in turn this player will see your Sansa Clip.. and you can manage it a lot easier using WMP.

Make sure to explore all the settings.. and remember if you want the album to come over from itunes to WMP you can go into these same settings and force it to update simply cliking OK in the Monitor folder settings.

If you want album art.. some may come over.. some may not.. If you must have album art.. prepare to use Amazon to copy and paste.. it's relatively quick and easy to do.

Good luck.. enjoy

Can't load music onto my SanDisk Sanza Fuze Mp3 player


Itunes is what is known as proprietary software.
Which basically means that it only works with hardware of the same brand. (Apple- Ipod)
You will not be able Itunes to load mp3 files on a Sansa MP3 player.

You will have to use this to convert your Itunes files to mp3's to be able to play them on the Sansa. You will have to go to the music folder then the itunes folder then Library.

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.

Sansa MP3 players will not play iTunes songs. Only iPods play iTune songs. Visit Limewire to download songs that you can play on your MP3 player.

Loading My ITunes library into new Sansa Clip


Hey guyi,

According to information provided by the manufacturer (Sandisk), the Sansa Clip MP3 player can use two different methods to upload songs: a simple drag-and-drop interface, or syncronizing the player with Windows Media Player.

With the traditional drag-and-drop interface, you would need to connect the player to your computer and select the "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer" option when it is presented. Once you have done this, you should be able to double-click on the "Sansa" player and then the "Music" folder. After this folder has been opened, you should be able to drag and drop (or copy/paste) the files into this folder to upload them to the player.

For more information or instructions on how to add files to your Sansa music library using Windows Media Player however, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or the following link on the manufacturer's website:

http://www.sandisk.com/assets/File/Downloads/user-guides/clip-usermanual.pdf

Unfortunately Windows Media Player does not currently appear to support the ability to directly import iPod playlists, but if you keep most of your music files in the same folder/directory on your computer, both programs should be able to share the same music library. Please keep in mind that this may only apply to music that you loaded onto the computer yourself and other unprotected file formats that both programs recongize (like .MP3 files), and may not necessarily apply to copy-protected songs downloaded from iTunes or other online music services.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
