Question about SanDisk Sansa Fuze MP3 Player
The mp3 player that needs to be set.
I bought an inexpensive transmitter and on the back of the package it tells you what 8 stations can be set. Out of 8 there is only 1 sation that barely works. When I do plug in everything and find the songs or proceed to tunr up the volume all you hear is a skipping rotating/thumping noise that eventually stops but by this time you are so frustrated you don't wnat ot bother with the mp3 player.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
Here's a link to this great service

hmm... well someone probably placed a subscription time on the songs you purchased. the only thing i could think to do would be to try and reload them to your mp3 player

SOURCE: Mp3 Songs are not visible.
Go to the menu in you mp3 player. In the menu, under settings, make sure that "advanced" is set to off. Then it should show that the USB is MSC, not MTP, and you should be able to view your songs when you hook back up to the computer.

Your songs are in the wrong format - expired DRM license or expired music svc - convert them all to Mp3 format and you will be fine
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.
