Make sure you're Sansa is in MSC mode (go to settings/options, then "system settings", then "USB Mode", then MSC -- this option is available if you've updated your firmware to v01.03.02a). Connect your Sansa via USB cable and then open "My Computer", double-click on the Sansa View icon and create a new folder called "PODCAST". Place Podcasts in this folder, then close the window and "safely" remove your Sansa from the USB port. After the Sansa refreshes itself, go to "MUSIC" then "PODCASTS" and you should see your file(s)!

what is the size of the podcast mp3? Many podcasts don't actually send you an mp3 of the podcast, but a link embedded in the mp3 that streams the podcast to your player of choice. (twit does this, fairly frustrating) if the mp3 is not very large, that is probably why.

1) You need to set the "tags" in the music files ... artist, album and song name. I would suggest opening up the files in MediaMonkey, which will let you edit the tags.

2) After you download the podcasts with MediaMonkey, you need to find out where they exist on your disk. Then, copy them to your Clip using Windows Explorer.

Plug the view into the computer via usb and find where your music files from frostwire are downloaded to (most likely your Shared folder) and copy or drag the destined files to your Views Music folder and then unplug when your view is done transferring and all the songs you placed in the folder should show up.

How do you download a podcast on the sansa mp3 clip?


Hi wyostardust,

There is a workaround to not use iTunes to subscribe to and download your favorite podcasts. This workaround is called Juiced : http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/ and it is free. Once you have used Juice to download all your podcasts you can then transfer them (the mp3s) to your Sansa Clip the same way you do with your music.

Regards,

Placing mp3 podcasts in the podcast folder


Create a folder on your View (in MSC mode) named "PODCAST". DO NOT put it in your MUSIC folder, but in the root directory. Place your Podcasts in there and disconnect your Sansa. After it refreshes you'll find your Podcasts under "Music\Podcasts" on your View :)

Podcast folder does not appear in menu


I didn't realize this Sansa player had a podcast folder - strange. At any rate, switch the USB mode on the player to MSC and see if they show up:Turn on then press and hold the rewind button while plugging to the PC

Sansa dioesn't recognize audiobooks


Maybe the new firmware will fix this.

"OGG placed in Audiobook or podcast folder shows up in Music directory." (see below)
(http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=30954)
01.01.30

Enhancements:
  • FLAC decoder support
  • Allow Podcasts to skip episodes using FF / REW
  • New startup and shutoff images
  • Improved the time to rebuild the metadata
  • Improved M3U playlist support
  • Enhancements for sorting Podcast contents which do not have their track number ID3 tag information
  • Separate missing license error message for Audible and generic Audiobooks. Message changed to instruct the customer in how to resolve the problem
Bugs Fixed:
  • OGG placed in Audiobook or podcast folder shows up in Music directory
  • Delete song from a long playlist causes the device to hang
  • Selecting “Back to Music List” while playing FM/Voice recordings will display double “Play All” on screen & will cause device to hang upon selecting “Play All”
  • Certain tag information for mp3 files will cause the device to hang or freeze
  • Made OGG file Tags not case sensitive
  • Noise problem on voice recording
  • Device in MTP mode will jump back to AutoSelect mode after UI format
  • Device behaves erratically when file extension got changed (i.e. .txt to .mp3, .jpg to .wma)
  • All Audiobooks should show 1/1 if Chapter Mode is OFF
  • Certain Rhapsody tracks show clicking noises
  • Deactivation message “Synchronize to listen to your Audiobooks” for Audible is uninformative and irrelevant
