"No Music"


Either:
1)The licenses on the songs expired, which means you will have to update them through the music service that you acquired them from. (Not likely since the ripped songs are doing the same thing - although you could have inadvertently checked the option in Windows Media Player to add a DRM license to them).
Or:
2) Switch the USB Mode in the Settings menu of your Sansa clip to Auto-Detect or MTP.

Good luck!

Try to listen to songs on my Mp3 player (sansa c240) it no wrk


You have to connect the mp3 player to the computer and refresh your device through Bearshare - their songs have fixed licenses, which require you to refresh every 30 days or less.

Refresh database


it's supposed to refresh database anytime you make changes to your clip. also, check in the settings what usb mode you're in as well as "my computer" to see if the device shows up when it's plugged in. as for transfering media, if you want to use a program to do it for you, use mtp (under settings on your clip). if you want to manually drag and drop, put it in msc (also in settings). also in msc, it doesn't really matter where you decide to drop the files onto the player, although there should already be a music folder to help keep things organized.

Refreshing data


Reformat the player and update the firmware

Very weird...


'Refresh Database' doesn't mean everything is erased. It only means it's writing the progress that you made, onto the computer. It stays on 'Refresh Database' for about maybe 5-10 minutes. It refreshes its database every time you disconnect your MP3 player from the computer. What it does when you disconnect it from the computer is it saves any unsaved changes made to it and overwrites the memory or data.

That's a pretty weird problem. The only suggestion I can give you is to check to make sure the music you put on was 1) in mp3 or wav format and 2) if this is music you have purchased, to ensure you have the rights properly set to play the music
