It is my understanding that downloaded iTunes music only works with iPod products. However, you can create your iTunes music into MP3 format in your iTunes library. Your MP3 player should come with the software needed or tell you which application to use (ex. Windows Media Player). After you've created an MP3 version you can import/export into the proper media application then sync to your MP3 player.

Info I found on the web about your MP3 player:

Compatible Formats

The player supports MPEG4 video files and audio files saved in MP3, secure and unsecured WMA, WAV, Audible, and Overdrive file formats.

Simply connect the player to a PC, and start dragging files from your Windows Media Player 10 or 11 applications.

    To create MP3 version in iTunes: select song/songs, right click, "create MP3 version" or click on the "advanced" tab (top of menu bar), "create MP3 version".

    To view song format: select song, right click "get info", under "summary" tab...kind: AAC audio file (usually).

    To always display format: this is a bit of a pain because you have to select each playlist separately...select playlist, click on "view" tab (top of menu bar), "view options", then check "kind".

    Note: iTunes creates an MP3 format in addition to previous format. You will have a copy of both until you delete what you don't want.

    I hope this really helps, Good Luck!

Why wont this sync with my itunes library?


Hi, Is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze compatible with iTunes? In some ways, it is. Unfortunately, the Sansa Fuze and iTunes don't always play nice together. You'll have to get a few workarounds to make these two sync together.

The SanDisk Sansa Fuze and iTunes

The SanDisk Sansa Fuze is natively a Windows product. You should be able to sync it with Windows Media Player automatically. However, not everyone owns a Windows PC and even if they do, they might store more music in their iTunes library.

If this is the case for you, you might find it helpful to be able to sync your Sansa Fuze with your iTunes music library. Bear in mind that you won't be able to sync apps, games or any other iTunes products that are not formatted for use on a Sansa Fuze.
Using iTunes with the Sansa Fuze

So, is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze compatible with iTunes? If you download the right software, it is. Apple offers a free download that works with many other non-iPod MP3 players, Sansa Fuze included.

Unfortunately, this product only runs on a Mac operating system. However, if you own a Mac, this is great news because it means you can still use your Fuze without buying a Windows PC.

If you use a Windows PC and want to transfer your iTunes music to the Fuze, don't lose hope - there's a way to do that, too.
Syncing the Sansa Fuze with iTunes

If you're using a Mac, visit this link for Apple's free software download. It comes directly from Apple, so you can be assured that it's spyware-free.

Install the software on your Mac. You need Mac OS X 10.4 or higher as well as iTunes version 8 or higher.

Plug your Sansa Fuze into the Mac and wait for the software to open. You should see a listing of your iTunes music library pop open in a window. You're then given the option to sync as many songs as possible onto your Fuze.

The syncing process is similar to syncing an iPod. Don't unplug the device until it's finished.
Syncing the iTunes Library in Windows

You can sync your Sansa Fuze with iTunes using a script called the Automator, found here. Once downloaded, open the script under your "Downloads" folder on your "C:" drive and find a string of characters that looks like this: "/Users/richard/Music/*.mp3".

Replace the name "Richard" with your own username. Don't change anything else. Select "File," "Save" from the menu.

Select the Automator icon with the right click button on your mouse and choose "Open with," "Automator Runner." If working properly, this should automatically sync the music from iTunes with your Sansa Fuze.

If that doesn't work, go into your iTunes library and highlight any DRM-protected tracks that you purchased from iTunes. Right-click and select "Make MP3 Version." These should now be compatible with the Automator.

This sounds like more or less of a "hack" than a solution, but this might be the only way to sync music from iTunes to your Fuze using Windows. If all else fails, make MP3 versions of the songs as shown above, then navigate to your iTunes folder where those files are stored. Then drag and drop these into Windows Media Player, where they should sync right onto your Fuze.



Hope that helps..

Can't load music onto my SanDisk Sanza Fuze Mp3 player


Itunes is what is known as proprietary software.
Which basically means that it only works with hardware of the same brand. (Apple- Ipod)
You will not be able Itunes to load mp3 files on a Sansa MP3 player.

I cant find a cord to hook my SanDisk Sansa 8GB to car


The Sansa isn't supposed to connect to a CD player. You need to use a computer to rip tracks from the CD, then transfer them from the computer to the Sansa.
