It doesn't work with either Mac or iTunes - sorry.
Here's the user manual that lists the system requirements:

I can download free audiobooks to my macbook pro, how do i transfer them to my sandisk sana clip


Connect the supplied USB cable from your player to the USB port on your MAC. The MAC will detect this player and your can then copy the audiobooks from the MAC to the Scandisk.
If the Scandisk cannot play the audiobooks then they are in the wrong file format. Then they need to be converted to the file format that the Scandisk uses.

I have a sansa clip; could not find Rhapsody cards; got an iTunes card for my Mac; apparently transferred tunes from Mac to clip, see them on the clip directory from my Mac but can't see them or play them...


Your Sansa will not be compatible with the DRM used in iTunes. You can download iTunes+ tracks, which are DRM free (there are a lot of them now) or you can 'burn' the m4a files to mp3 files with a program like NoteBurner (www.noteburner.com) :: Disclaimer :: This method is technically illegal, except in jurisdictions that allow backup copies.

I recently purchased a Sansa Clip MP3. I downloaded audiobooks to it but they will not play. What do I need to do?


Not true!!! The Sansa Clip is actually the best mp3 player I have found for listing to audiobooks. Here is what you need to do. Download the latest firmware update on the Sandisk website. You must do this or it just won't work unless you are downloading books from Audible.

I use the Overdrive Media Console and download mp3 and WMA books from my state library. When you hit transfer, be sure it hit advanced options. Browse until you select the audiobook folder on your player. Then transfer to that.

The player will bookmark your last place on anything that is in your audiobook folder. You can easily switch back and forth between your music and book without losing your place! Love it!

It even has a sleep timer on it. I'm in heaven.

Getting the message: "Synchronize to listen to your audiobooks" How do I do this?


Make sure that you have Windows Media Player version 10 or higher installed. Then, run Windows Media Player, and connect your Clip to your PC. WMP should give you the ability to "sync" your Clip. Besides copying music to your Clip (if you want), this will cause licensing information on your PC to be updated and compared against the licensing information embedded in your audiobooks.

Won't load audiobook because clock is not set


Had the same problem - used this solution from ehow.com at this web address: http://www.ehow.com/how_5180421_troubleshoot-sansa-clip-mp.html Worked and now I'm transferring my book from overdrive - hope it helps. Reset the Clip by holding the On/Off switch in the On position for approximately 20 seconds. Release the switch, then attach it to the USB adapter to charge it. This process can help when the Clip does not appear to be working at all.

I can't put music into my sansa clip on my mac ibook wat can i download?


Hello,

There's a Sandisk Answers support site. Entering mac leads to:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/list/kw/mac/r_id/101834/search/1

Next link ( 4. ) tells how to use iTunes on a MAC for transferring files to mp3 format:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1141
Download iTunes ( version 9 ):
http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/


Manual for the Sansa Clip ( readable with Adobe Reader ):
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/CLIP/CLIP_UM_English.pdf

After transferring music to the supported format,
use the Drag and Drop method as described on page 11 (=page 9) for putting songs in the MUSIC folder.

Look on page 22 (=page 20) for the supported file formats.


When more help is needed, just post a comment.

Downloaded books from the library won't play


I was having the same problem when I used Overdrive Media Console to transfer my audiobook files to my Sansa. I updated the license and retransferred and even tried changing the USB settings on the mp2 player. What finally worked? Using Windows Media Player to sync the files instead. When I hooked up my Sansa I chose "use WMP to sync files" and then I dragged/dropped the audiobook files to the mediaplayer window. The audiobook now plays without any problems since WMP made sure the files have the latest subscription update code.

Can't transfer data files


I was afraid of that. The file that you are trying to load has a DRM license on it that has a fixed-term license. It will play on your player for about a wekk or so, and then it is unusable except on the computer itself.

Most mp3 players that claim to support audiobooks don't really support most audiobooks - or don't play them correctly. Audiobooks that are in mp3 format (as in, NOT Overdrive) will give you the fewest problems.

Just in the last month this problem surfaced. I download audio books from my library. I have been doing this for the past year. My MP3 player says synchronize to continue your subscription. My library is...


I had this issue with my e260 and Overdrive Media audiobooks. Here is how I solved the problem:

NOTE: Make sure that your license is valid -or the following will make no difference.

1. Windows Media Player needs to be at least 10 -and it needs a security update to be able to deal with DRM files.
2. The audiobook needs to be opened (played) (even just for 1 sec.) on the computer first to "activate" the license.
3. When transferring from Overdrive Media the Sansa HAS to be set to MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) in the USB settings for the license to transfer to the device allowing it to play.

I hope this helps someone. It took me an entire day of research and trial & error to figure it out.

Can't transfer Audible files to my Sansa Clip


The link to the operating manual (which includes the Audiobook instructions) is here:
http://www.sandisk.com/sansa/assets/English/products/Clip/Clip_userguide_en.pdf

What I would do is drag and drop the Audible files from the folder that Audible creates to store your audiobooks to the Audible folder of the Sansa Clip, instead of using the Audible Manager.
