The most probable solution is to change the file format type e.g : mp3, WMA etc

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


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.

I put on songs and it makes a weird sound


This may be because the SS's SD chip is to loose. If you have the same problem, I'm VERY VERY sorry!! I have no idea why it would do that!!! Only my SS dosen't play at all no matter what I do!!!!!!!!!!

It can only be mp3 format. ONLY MP3. Convert all your music to this format only using this website:
http://www.wma-mp3.org/
be patient the site is very busy
Even if your file has been renamed to a mp3 file it will not work until you convert the files.
I have 2 of these and had to do this with all my music. Then after conversion click and drag the songs.

Sansa shaker not playing


Funny I found this forum because I've been having the same problem. My understanding is that subscription services (yahoo music, iTunes, etc.) don't come in an mp3 file format. You can, however, add songs from cd's you own.

Here's a link you might find helpful. It's from the Sansa Forums. One of the posters describes how you can convert files. I don't know how complicated it is. Good luck! :)

I understand your frustration! I've been having the same problem. I just wasted TWO HOURS trying to get music to download onto this Shaker. The extra $40 for a better device would have been worth it! I can't afford to buy all the cd's that I'd need to fill this player with the songs my son likes. I'm thinking of bringing it back!

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.

The music has to be in MP3 format.

If you have copied CD's to your computer, you will need to change the settings in Windows Media Player to copy them as MP3's.

Windows Media Player>Tools>Settings>Rip Music (Copy Music)>Chane Rip Music as to MP3.

Delete all the songs you copied before from your computer and from the Shaker.

Copy the new songs back to the Shaker after you change the settings.





Best of Luck.
