Question about SanDisk Sansa e140 MP3 Player

Sync to internal and external memory without duplicates

Has anyone come up with a good method to sync music to this player without ending up with duplicates across the two storage devices (internal memory and external SD card)? I use Windows Media Player, and the internal and external memory show up as two separate devices. So, if I use any of the Sync features, I end up sending some of the same files to the two devices. I have found a workaround by making some auto-playlists segregated by song length, but that's kind of awkward. A previous player I owned, from RIO, came with software that recognized the internal and external memory as a single "logical" device. But, Rio's music management software only works with their players. Has anyone found this type of feature in any music management software which works with the Sansa? Or, some other way to do this?

How do I delete duplicate songs on my Nano 4gb Ipod? How do I adjust the volume?


Using iTunes' "Show Duplicate Items" feature, you can locate and manually remove duplicate songs on your iTunes music library. Once the library is cleaned, you need only sync iTunes with your iPod to remove duplicates from your device as well. This guide takes iTunes 12 to remove song duplicates.
delete-duplicate-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-1-0.jpg
  1. In iTunes, click "View > Show Duplicate Items" in Music module;
  2. Compare the listed song duplicates upon artist, album, date added, genre, play count, size, bit rate, and more to determine which item to keep and which item to remove;
  3. Hold the "Ctrl" key and click each duplicate you wish to delete.
  4. Connect your iPhone 6 to PC, click your iPhone from the device list, hit "Music" and select "Sync" to sync your library using your existing sync settings.
By doing this, you could delete duplicate songs on iPod from your iTunes. But it will eat a lot time of you. To save your time, let's come to the 2nd method - using 3rd-party iTunes cleaner program.

I can tel you some other way to transfer music files into your phone instead of doin sync. Connect your phone to PC via USB. Now your phone will ask to select on eoption. Select Mass Storage. Now you click my computer in your PC & select memory stick drive there. this is a direct access into your phone memory stick. Select the music file you want & copy paste it into music folder in your memory stick.

I have tried to sync music to my mp3 but not successful and why wont itunes either.


iTunes won't sync music to any device other than iPods. You'll need to use a program like Windows Media Player or MediaMonkey.

An alternative is to use Windows Explorer. Run "My Computer" and look for your Sansa shown there. Double-click on it. You'll either see a list of folders including "MUSIC", or you'll see something that looks like "Internal Memory". If you see "MUSIC", copy your songs to the MUSIC folder. If you see "Internal Memory", double-click on that, and then you should see a list of folders including "Music" ... copy your songs to the Music folder.

How do I get the downloaded music from my computer into the clip?


You have 2 ways to transfer your songs from your computer to your sansa clip:
1. Plug sansa clip to computer, double click on "Sansa Clip ...GB", double click on "Internal Memory", you will see the file "Music", copy your songs and paste them into Music file of the device.
2. Using Windows Media Player: open windows media player, plug sansa clip into computer, click on Sync tab, select songs that you want to sync, drag and drop song selected into "Sync list" on the right side of the windows media player (you should update wmp11), then click on button Start Sync.

Good luck

Lost software


of course you have to secure a installer disk even if you lose it.... And also you can download a Software Installation from your MP3 Website..
Theres a lot of MP3 are not using a program on its own to upload and download a mp3 files in your MP3 player.
But if you can download your mp3 files without using a program of your mp3 player and then you can play it... Its ok...! Good luck!

Song duplication


Corrupt DB or music svc sub needs renewing

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
