Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

1 Answer

Won't keep playing my music

I got a sansa clip at the start of the year and didn't downloading the little CD that they sent with it for their music store. Instead I downloaded some of my CDs onto the computer and put them on the MP3 player using Windows Media Player. But now a month later it won't let me put any more songs on it, and it also won't play the ones that I already have on it. The radio and everything else still works, so it is just a problem with the music. I emailed their support place, but all I got back was an automatic response that told me nothing. Please explain why it is doing this and how I can fix it!

Obtain licence for audio book SansaDisk clip+ 4gb


I had this problem too. Found a fix posted last year by the legendary and awesome Neutron Bob. Here's a link:

http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/Clip-Clip/synchronize-to-continue-your-music-subscription/td-p/188012

I made my own notes as well:

1) Switch Sansa to MTP mode
2) Tether Sansa to the Computer, confirm it is in MTP mode;
Start > My Computer
Sansa appears under "other", not with a drive letter.

3) Reset Registry for Sansa;
Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > Portable Device.
Select Sansa
Uninstall
Wait 30 seconds

4) Restart the Computer

5) Plug in Sansa

6) Re-Download a book into Sansa player

Hope this helps!

I can't seem to download videos into my mp3.


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night, whatever time you are viewing this. You are having trouble downloading videos onto your MP3 Player? Well there is a reason for and you probably won't like this... There is no way you can play videos on this MP3 Player. Sansa Clip doesn't support video files, only music files and audio podcasts. Sorry about this, but FixYa encourages you to come visit the website again soon. Again sorry, but I hope you have a good day, evening or night, whatever time you are viewing this solution post.

I have a new Macbook Pro. How do I download Mp3 files to my Sansa clip Mp3 Player?


  1. The Sansa Clip will only play digital files that are in the MP3 format.
  2. Anything you "drag" to the Clip must be dragged to the MUSIC folder of the Clip drive represented on your desktop.
So, first make sure your CD "audio files" are in the MP3 format (iTunes can convert them, if not). And second, make sure you locate the MUSIC folder on the Clip drive as your destination.
Getting Songs onto the Clip
This is just a matter of copying files.

1) Plug the Clip into your USB
2) Copy song files (in the format the Clip accepts, see Clip manual) from your source to the MUSIC folder of the Clip drive.

NOTE (applies only to older versions of firmware): Copying files to the Clip on a Mac created extra files on the Clip and you would see them on the Clip display. If you are using an earlier firmware, you need something like the application, KopyMac to prevent this during copying. With the latest version of the firmware, this problem is eliminated.

FYI, if you keep your song files in the Artist:Album:song folder hierarchy on your source drive, you can copy the Artist folder to the Clip MUSIC folder and the hierarchy will be available through the Clip Music menu.

I recently purchased a Sansa Clip MP3. I downloaded audiobooks to it but they will not play. What do I need to do?


Not true!!! The Sansa Clip is actually the best mp3 player I have found for listing to audiobooks. Here is what you need to do. Download the latest firmware update on the Sandisk website. You must do this or it just won't work unless you are downloading books from Audible.

I use the Overdrive Media Console and download mp3 and WMA books from my state library. When you hit transfer, be sure it hit advanced options. Browse until you select the audiobook folder on your player. Then transfer to that.

The player will bookmark your last place on anything that is in your audiobook folder. You can easily switch back and forth between your music and book without losing your place! Love it!

It even has a sleep timer on it. I'm in heaven.

My Sansa Clip (4 GB) is not detected in pc but it get charged.


These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
