    I tried 2 different SD cards and both say they have the songs added but the shaker itself will not play the songs. I also deleted the origional song on the card. I am frustrated because tomorrow is Christmas and my daughter will not have songs on her Shaker.

    My Sansa Shaker worked for exactly 2 hours, and then it started doing weird stuff - It make the starting drumroll when you turn it on, but will not play anything beyond that. I even tried changing the battery, to no avail. This is a very low quality toy.

The Sansa Shaker ONLY plays MP3's, I downloaded a bunch of .wma files and kept getting the uh-oh so I put on an mp3 I had a voila! it played. Bummer though. Guess I gotta figure out how to convert my music files for my daughter, or pitch this thing and buy one that will play any media file.

THE SONGS I SYNCED WILL NOT PLAY ON MY SHAKER.


The Sansa Shaker supports only .mp3 and .wav file formats. It is possible that you have synced WMA or M4A audio files that have DRM protection. These formats are not supported by the SANSA SHAKER.
Songs purchased through Amazon or copied from your music collection in mp3 format will play on your SHAKER.

My sansa shaker is just not playing any music


"Media Coder" is a free program you can download that will convert your songs on the shaker to MP3 files. I had the same problem. Make sure the shaker is plugged into computer so that you will be able to choose the songs on it to convert. Very easy to use. Just google "Media Coder" and you should find it.

Hi my sansa shaker wont play music


Make sure the songs are in the right file format first. I would only download songs that are in mp3 format for starters. If it is still not playing, follow the reset method that the manual suggests. If it is still not working, it may be defective. These "windowless" players are the most difficult to use, because there is no on-screen display to let you know what's going on.

Shaker wont play songs


The songs that you are trying to download may not have the right DRM license - get the premium version of your music service subscription to get the correct license (or go to the license tab under the song properties, and click acquire license).

Only plays some songs


The Shaker only plays songs in MP3 format.

If you Ripped (copied) CD's to your PC with Windows Media Player, the default settings are as WMA.

You will need to delete these and re-copy them to your PC, then transfer to the Shaker.





Best of Luck.
