First thing to do here since the new mp3 player that you have is not yet formatted, so lets do format it it first, just open up Mycomputer and your player should show there just right click on it and select Format then after that try to synch songs it should be working already.....

Having trouble downloading.


You have to use Windows Media Player to transfer songs from your computer to the Sansa. If the songs are already on your computer, then you are good to go. Just open up Windows Media Player, click on the sync tab, and then drag files to the sync area, and click Start Sync. If the songs are not already there, do yourself a favor - only sign up to a music service that gives you the songs in mp3 format. WMA's are too problematic, and will lead you to ask a million questions and deal with a million problems. Stick to Mp3 format only, and you should be good to go.

Nextar MA933A says it accepted music but it didn't


When you download songs, save it first on your My Music folder for you to easily track the song list. Once you have successfully downloaded the songs, insert your MP3 Player. Format your MP3 Player first by right clicking the drive and click format. Once it is formatted, Copy the songs from your My Music folder then Paste it on your MP3 Player drive. 

*Note: Try to play your saved song in your Windows Media Player if the song is working fine before you copy it on your MP3 Player.

Music won't sync to mp3 player! D:


Hi,

The problem is that iTunes songs only work with iPods. If you pay extra, they will now let you download them in a format compatible with other players but I don't recommend using iTunes (or anything from Apple for that matter). Try Amazon MP3. The songs downloaded from there will work with any player under the sun and they're generally cheaper than iTunes. Here is the link:

You can use either Rhapsody or Windows Media Player to sync the files to your device.

My mp3 player has nothing on it but the space is used by something and when i try to put songs on it it say disk space full insert new disk


Reformat the player to make the computer read the player correctly again:

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

The song format is most likely wrong:
read my "Tips and Tricks" on Song formats for Mp3 players: too long to repost here

Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained
By Tha Mp3 Doctor
I have seen quite a few threads around Fixya in which the stated problem is that the Mp3 or Digital Audio Player will not load the songs; will appear to load the songs but will not actually play them in the Mp3 player once disconnected from computer; will skip the songs on the player, or show only “0:00” for file length; songs “disappear” all of a sudden (although this particular problem can be caused for many reasons not covered in this article); your store-bought/burned/ripped CD’s will not load into your Mp3 player; or get the error message “File Format Not Supported.” All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music file is in a certain format. The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC, WAV, RA, etc. Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats. Every Mp3 Player is different. You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes. When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.

Or, it could be a "formatting" issue:

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.

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.

i have used quite a few mp4 players and encountered this problem several times - the solution that worked for me is :

Format the drive when it syncs to your computer -- a quick format will do and then it should let you copy the songs to it

just in case you don't know how to format it

1) Right click the MP4 player drive
