Some songs i added into it won't show up in player
I added songs to it, but when you actually open the player up, and go to the list of songs, some of the songs won't show up, like it doesn't exist at all. But when you plug the player into the computer with the cord/USB, it shows the list of all songs and those songs are listed there.

Delete all the songs on your device and transfer them back..You could have a corruption in your databasse... To delete songs from your device follow the steps below You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there. Either under sync panel in your windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete. To
format it..on your device..go under..menu, setting and there should be
a format option option there..let me know if that doenst work for you... Hope this helps

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.

ONE MORE BIG WARNING: BE CAREFUL AND DO NOT DELETE THE FILES NEEDED TO OPERATE YOUR MP3 PLAYER. Please take time to rate me
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.
IF YOUR COMPUTER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE YOUR MP3 PLAYER, YOU WILL NEED TO SEARCH AND FIND THE DRIVER FOR IT AND INSTALL IT.
Please don't throw it out the window! :O Usually, it will seperate them into seperate files to keep it organized by artist or album, so you don't have to go searching through one folder filled with all your music for one specific song.
When only half of your sub files show, that sometimes mean either the song can't fit, or something is just wrong with the song. That happens usuakky with songs from Limewire or Napster. There is nothing wrong with the computer; it's doing what it is build up to do.
I had the same problem, but only for one album's tracks. I've fixed it by connecting the player to my PC, opening Windows Explorer, then deleting the songs listed under the Artist and Album folders, and then I found a separate entry for each individual song and deleted those too. Maybe I'd accidentally added the album twice at some stage.
two suggestions: put player in msc mode by going to the settings menu and choosing USB mode, then change to MSC then plug in and open the player in My Computer menu if you do not see songs on the player, back out and format player at the drive letter prompt, then add songs either manually, drag and drop to the player (not the music folder!) or sync the songs with windows media player 10 or 11
You have to first change the USB mode on the player to MTP (as opposed to MSC). Forget using the Windows Media Player (yeah, I know). Go to Explorer, go to drive E or whatever your Sansa is listed as....open it and it will show different types of folders. Go to MUSIC folder. The songs are listed and you can delete, e.g. delete mp3 and keep WMA of the same song, or whatever else you want to delete.
