Yep - it's a sad thing. iPod docks have ruined many a good mp3 player. Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website (make sure the Sansa is not plugged into the computer yet). Once the Recovery Tool is downloaded, connect the Sansa to the computer while holding in the REC button and continue to hold it even after th player is plugged in. It should go into Recovery Mode in 10-15 seconds or so.

How to connect my ipod and make it play music?


to what? if you plug it in to the computer it should pop-up the itunes player. unless your on someone elses computer. then open up media player or something like that. if your trying to plug it into something else like a radio then you need a jack that fits your ipod that also connects into the radio. some radios do not have this but most new ones do.

I want to know how to download music from itunes and other music sites to my sansa ipod.


iTunes music and video have DRM copyright protection, you can only play it on your computer or your iPod player. If you want to put them on other portable player such as Sansa, Zen, Zune, MP3/MP4 player, etc. You have to remove the DRM protection at first. I found a media converter can do that, it's easy to use and works pretty well for me, you may download it for a try.

No data


update your ipod at http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp then plug it into the usb port go to my computer right click the icon when it opens you'll see a folder that says music, photos, record. open the music folder, there you can drop and drag files as long as their mp3 they should play. hopefully after you update your ipod your computer recognizes it. mine recognizes mine but i can only get music on it by opening the folder and coping files into it. may this might help

How do i transfer music from a sansa mp3 player to an ipod


Double-click My computer --> double-click Sansa --> go to Music/Songs/Albums folder - i forgot the exact wording - and drag the music files from the Sansa player to a new folder that you create on your desktop. Then drag those songs from your computer to your iPod using iTunes, Windows Media Player, or some other transfer software

Ipod charger


1 question: how did you do that? i thought the Ipod and the sansa have different adapter types? anyway, i'd suggest getting a new battery. and it's probably because the sansa and ipod use don't use the same amount of energy (volts, etc.) that this happened.
