The File might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.".... but i got the songs from a cd.....why wouldnt it be able to put it onto an mp3 player?

Go into Windows Media Player --> click the black arrow under the Rip tab --> Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3

Now re-rip the songs from CD
Delete the versions of the songs that you just ripped from your mp3 player
Now Sync the newly-ripped versions in mp3 format

You should be good to go now

Why wont this sync with my itunes library?


Hi, Is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze compatible with iTunes? In some ways, it is. Unfortunately, the Sansa Fuze and iTunes don't always play nice together. You'll have to get a few workarounds to make these two sync together.

The SanDisk Sansa Fuze and iTunes

The SanDisk Sansa Fuze is natively a Windows product. You should be able to sync it with Windows Media Player automatically. However, not everyone owns a Windows PC and even if they do, they might store more music in their iTunes library.

If this is the case for you, you might find it helpful to be able to sync your Sansa Fuze with your iTunes music library. Bear in mind that you won't be able to sync apps, games or any other iTunes products that are not formatted for use on a Sansa Fuze.
Using iTunes with the Sansa Fuze

So, is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze compatible with iTunes? If you download the right software, it is. Apple offers a free download that works with many other non-iPod MP3 players, Sansa Fuze included.

Unfortunately, this product only runs on a Mac operating system. However, if you own a Mac, this is great news because it means you can still use your Fuze without buying a Windows PC.

If you use a Windows PC and want to transfer your iTunes music to the Fuze, don't lose hope - there's a way to do that, too.
Syncing the Sansa Fuze with iTunes

If you're using a Mac, visit this link for Apple's free software download. It comes directly from Apple, so you can be assured that it's spyware-free.

Install the software on your Mac. You need Mac OS X 10.4 or higher as well as iTunes version 8 or higher.

Plug your Sansa Fuze into the Mac and wait for the software to open. You should see a listing of your iTunes music library pop open in a window. You're then given the option to sync as many songs as possible onto your Fuze.

The syncing process is similar to syncing an iPod. Don't unplug the device until it's finished.
Syncing the iTunes Library in Windows

You can sync your Sansa Fuze with iTunes using a script called the Automator, found here. Once downloaded, open the script under your "Downloads" folder on your "C:" drive and find a string of characters that looks like this: "/Users/richard/Music/*.mp3".

Replace the name "Richard" with your own username. Don't change anything else. Select "File," "Save" from the menu.

Select the Automator icon with the right click button on your mouse and choose "Open with," "Automator Runner." If working properly, this should automatically sync the music from iTunes with your Sansa Fuze.

If that doesn't work, go into your iTunes library and highlight any DRM-protected tracks that you purchased from iTunes. Right-click and select "Make MP3 Version." These should now be compatible with the Automator.

This sounds like more or less of a "hack" than a solution, but this might be the only way to sync music from iTunes to your Fuze using Windows. If all else fails, make MP3 versions of the songs as shown above, then navigate to your iTunes folder where those files are stored. Then drag and drop these into Windows Media Player, where they should sync right onto your Fuze.



Hope that helps..

How I can put new music into my Sandisk Sansa Fuse 2 G


thats easy. you plug the device into the computer and open itunes, windows media, ect. and look in the side bar for you device. it should say something along the lines of Sansa fuze 2gb.  (windows media) go to the sync tab and select library there should be a side bar labeled the devices name on the right side. drag music from the library by clicking and holding the selected items and moving it into the sidebar. when you are done with selecting  music simply click the sync  button at the bottom of the sync sidebar.  (itunes) open a new itunes window and drag items from your library to you device and click sync.

you need to use a computer program such as Windows Media Player, you load all the discs into it's library section then connect the Fuze with a USB cable then you select the SYNC tab on media player and drag any song from the library over into the sync column on the left and hit Start Sync

What i would recommend you to do is if you have windows xp to uninstall windows media player 11 and reinstall windows media player...if you already have 10 just upgrade to 11..
That should solve the problem
I hope that helps
Thank you

Sandisk sansa c200(2gb)


Do you use windows media player 10 or 11 to sync music into the mp3 player? and have you updated firmware? Go to sansa.com and download a firmware updater and then try formatting the mp3 player, use WM and click on the arrow below sync and go to format.
