Plays six of twenty mp3s and the rest come up as

Delete songs and Format (Helps with try to delete BAD TRACKS and folders that will not delete
Labeling Unknown Songs: open Windows Media Player and go to library click on artist. The sub folders will be named by the artists and the unknown songs will be in the sub that say's unknown. Click on unknown then right click on the title bar put a check next to artist and album artist. Right click song under artist or album artist or both and type in the name of the artist etc.... This change in your computers Music folders also then sync with your sansa or media player then load songs to it........

"Unknown" listed in spots for songs in player's list of all songs

It's the id3 tag information that hasn't been filled out, most likely.   (id3? Hmmm)
Anyhow, depending on the operating system you use and the program you use for your music, it's easy to change.
If iTunes, just import the song into itunes, and "edit Info" and change all the song information. In Windows I believe you can do it in WMP, or by right-clicking the file.
Alot of the time a song just has the info in the filename, but mp3 players use the id3 tag to identify a song.

Mp3 in as "unknown". Won't play

download Switch by searching for it on google...then you can change the formats of your songs to anything you like and you can change how big the file gets converted to!!!

you can make them pretty small and then you can fit about 2,000 songs on a 2 GB!

hope this helps!

don't worry Switch does not give you spyware1.gif or viruses1.gif.. I checked! :]

this will "clean up" the files you want to put on your sansa...

it really works!! AND ITS FREEEEEE

Playing itunes on SanDisk

Depends on the format of the song. If it is .AAC it wont play on the Sansa. You'll need to convert the song to mp3 or wmv format, do a google search for "Mp3 converters" if you need to find a converter

My sansa keepz bringing up songs as bad tracks or unknowns then doesnt play them

i'm having this problem too. what i think is happening is you took the song off the player. However, the it is not completly off of the player. i.e. song info still on their. song name, artist, album ect. i just took everything off of my player. it says 1/467 songs on their but all say bad track. thats the problem now about that solution, i'm looking into it. but ya if you have any problems. hit me up at or MXRIDER007R on aim.

ok, mine had the same problem, first go to settings, then USB mode and switch it to MSC, plug it into your computer and it should show up, then format it, this will erase everything but then u can put it back on, after you format it you can switch it back to MTP mode, its alot better, hope i helped
