Well, I download a song and try to copy it to my internal memory folder to get it on my mp3 player. But when I click on copy (to internal memory),the computer screen reads ''Can't copy song, your mp3 is either disconnected or isn't responding''. And I totally have it plugged in and everything! This is how I usually get my songs on there, but it obviously won' do it now.Please help!

iTunes won't sync music to any device other than iPods. You'll need to use a program like Windows Media Player or MediaMonkey.
An alternative is to use Windows Explorer. Run "My Computer" and look for your Sansa shown there. Double-click on it. You'll either see a list of folders including "MUSIC", or you'll see something that looks like "Internal Memory". If you see "MUSIC", copy your songs to the MUSIC folder. If you see "Internal Memory", double-click on that, and then you should see a list of folders including "Music" ... copy your songs to the Music folder.
if its is a Flash-based MP3 player. That means that it has a small amount of built-in memory inside the player as well as an SD expansion slot for storing songs. When the player is connected, songs may be stored in either of these two places. you probably stored your songs on the internal memory. In either case, there are two basic ways to delete songs off of your player. You can use MP3 software (such as MusicMatch) to do this or just do it by
hand. To delete the files, follow the same process but delete the files instead of adding them. Assuming that you are using Microsoft Windows, click on "My Computer" and find the drive that is labeled "Removable Disk" and click on it. Look for a songs folder and continue to drill down folder by folder until you see your songs show up in the list. Highlight the songs that you want to delete (or the whole folder) and hit the delete button on your computer.and it will delete.hope this helps
If you are goin to download music from your computer
first you need a data cable that will connect your mp3 player to your computer. You should have gotten one with the player
i download music from a free music download site. most downloadable music is already in mp3 format so you just have to drag and drop the music. after you connect the mp3 player to your computer the computer should recognize it and list it in my computer along with the hard drive and cd rom drives. there are a couple of ways of adding music from here. you can copy and paste music from your computer, to do this you just have to click on the mp3 player in my computer, a page should open that says internal memory this is the internal memory of the mp3 player click on that, a list of folders should come up. there should be one for photos and one for videos, a few others and one for music. if you copy a song or group of songs from wherever in your computer that you have your music stored you can click back to the folder page. left click on the songs and click copy then click back to the internal memory page, put your mouse pointer over the music folder, left click and hit copy the song or songs will be copied into the music folder and can be accessed in the mp3 player. remember you can hold the control button down on your keyboard and select as many songs as you want to copy. If you want to transfer songs from a music cd you have to first load the cd and transfer the music to your computer. then you have to use a convertor, they are downloadable on the internet for free, then convert the music that you took off the cd to an mp3 format and then use the same steps as above to put the music on your mp3 player. If you are familiar with using your windows explorer on your computer you can open it and just drag the files from the folders they are in into the internal memory folders of your mp3 player.
On a lot of mp3 players the webpage for the product has a program that allows you to convert files and put them onto your mp3 player in one step. you could check the website for the product to see if they offer one.
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. Drop a comment if you still have questions. I would be happy assisting you.
The problem is the files. What I'm doing right now is going through the files, cutting and pasting the individual mp3 files (Not the folders) to a temp file, deleting the artist and album folders from the player, and cutting and pasting them back into the player. This is very labour intensive. The player will look at how many folders (artist) sub-folders (album) then songs. When it hits 500 it stops looking. I had about 100 artists with several albums for most. It would only list 2 songs. I've deleted several artists (and sub-directories) and copied the songs onto the player (no folders) now I'm up to about 20 songs. The "easiest" way to load the player is to copy/paste individual mp3's onto the player. I'm looking for a firmware upgrade but I don't think I'll find one.

you may want to try downloading only those that didn't download the first time. Sometimes when you try to download a large file (all the songs) it causes the "error message" you talk about. You may want to delete files already downloaded, or save the files downloaded to a different file folder, and try the download again.
You can always reformat it. If you plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format.
