Aha! I've had that problem. That can happen when something breaks down the connectivity between the player and your laptop. The database gets corrupted. I've had to reload all the songs to get it back in sync. You may want to upgrade to Sonic Stage if you haven't already.

How do i put music on my digital touch mp3/mp4

There are a few different ways to do this. One is to connect it to USB, then go to my computer, find the drive with your player on it. Leave this window open, and then go and open up your music folder, click and hold on the song you want, and drag the folder over to the file folder with you player on it, and let go of button and it will be added. To add all your songs from music folder, click left top song so it is highlighted, then press and HOLD the shift key, the scroll to bottom right last song, click on it. Now all songs should be highlighted, then drag and drop all these files to your mp3/mp4 file folder and they will be added.
The other way is to get windows media player 11. Sync your device with sync button, create a playlist with all your songs, then add them to sync list and hit sync and they will be added to your player

Songs don't want to synchronize onto my device

First you need to sync device before adding songs. First plug in device, than make sure computer notices player. Than go into media player or music folder and sync device. Than you can either create a sync list from there, or you can drag songs from music folder into your player folder.

Open start menu, my computer, E,F, or G drive should have player on it. You can drag songs from music folder into this drive folder and they will be automatically added

How to make the mp3 player work

Plug mp3 player in to usb. Does your computer recognize mp3 player? If yes, than go to "start menu" than "my/computer", than you will see drive folder with mp3 player. Leave this window up.

Now find your music folder with songs. Click song file, drag file to mp3 player drive folder and drop it in there. It will be added on your mp3 player.

Another way mabey easier, is to open media player, click sync device, Now media player can read mp3 player. In media player, find your songs in library or the folder that has them. click on "songs" or song file and drag it to the right side of media player and add it to the list of songs that will be added to mp3 player. Once all the songs are in the list on the right side, you can click the button at the bottom and they will be added to mp3 player.

Hiya. I am having problems with my nokia n96 mobile phone. Whenever I try to use the music player a message pops up saying "music player muted". how do i solve the problem? xx

HELP - Nokia N96 Music Player Problem
Well basically this is the problem , I got my brand new Nokia N96 two weeks ago. At first when I added the music, and I did the Refresh Library , it worked perfectly fine. But then after a few days, I added a few songs, but when I did Refresh Library, it didn't find any music

So I tried lots of different suggestions but I couldn't fix it so I decided to reformat my phone. After that when , I added music it worked again. But yesterday I added 5 new songs and again the music player didn't find the songs

Please people of Dotsis, I truly believe that one of you can solve this problem or give me any suggestion as I'm really worried about this problem...

How down my mp3 200 series sana

Use Windows Media Player to transfer songs to this device. If the songs are already on your computer, then use the Sync tab to transfer songs to your Mp3 player. If you want to transfer songs from CD to this player, then use the Rip tab in Windows Media Player. If this is your first time using Windows Media Player, then you probabaly need WAY more help than we could possibly give you here. Go to and search "Windows Media Player" to get help files and instructions with pictures on how to use the software.

If you do not have any Mp3 files already, then sign up for one of the web's music services. Napster and Rhapsody are good, but the basic-level subscription will not allow you to transfer songs to an Mp3 player - you will need to get their premium (more expensive) subscription to be able to transfer songs. Limewire and Morpheus have free versions of their music service, but they are ad-filled and virus-prone.

If you encounter any sort of technical problem with the player I can help you, but read my "Tips and Tricks" on Sansa players first, as they solve as wide variety of problems.

Adding Music To My Sansa e250

I never use Windows Media to add music to my sansa... If you want all music to show up click on my computer and then click on the icon for your sansa. there may be a folder that says music but if not it is a hidden folder. if this is so you must go to tools, then folder options, and then the tab that says view. under this will be an option that says hidden files and folders and click show hiden fles and folders and OK. this should allow you to see the music folder. from here on you can just copy and paste all files.

Sansa e280- files added via WMP10 or Windows explorer, but don't show up on player

No limit on the Genres.

If you keep adding music in different modes, Windows Media Player and Windows Explorer will not show the correct free space.

Theres a good chance you have too music music on your device and the device does not have enough free space to create the Database, or the songs, artists, album, etc.

Try deleting a few songs from the device with Windows Explorer and disconnect the player and let it restart.

If that doesnt work, you can FORMAT the device to remove all of the music and start over.

To format in My Computer>Device name (e280)>Right Click and select FORMAT.

Best of Luck.

Unable to play new songs added to MP3 player

Wal mart downloads are notorious for not working with subscription devices (i.e. - devices that use rhapsody, or yahoo.).

You have 2 options;

 1) dont use any music from wal-mart

 2) burn the music to a cd, the re-rip them to your PC, thusly removing any copy protection and then re-transfer them to your device.

Best of Luck.
