Unable to find new songs on SD card

My MP3 has a small slot for an SD card to add more space. I have used it before and it worked fine but recently I've tried to add some new songs and they show up on the computer and i can play them from the card on the computer but none of the new ones show up on the mp3 while the old ones still do and work perfectly fine. Any ideas?

If your device is too full, it wont have enough room to create the music database for the new songs. Move some of your music off of the device onto the memory card. Try to keep about 10MB free for each GB of music you have. You can add to this question for further assistance. Best of Luck.

Trying to add storage space unable to add music with new mlcro sdhc 8g memory card. mp3 player says music wont fit.

The Sansa e-series works with microSD cards. While microSDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I inserted a 2gb micro sd card into my 4gb sansa fuze for more memory and it's still saying I don't have enough space on it when I go to add a song off of limewire

Inserting a microSD card into the Sansa does nto magically expand its internal memory. The card is a separate chunk of memory. You can move some songs from the internal memory to the card to free up some internal memory. Or you can add the new song to the card.

I'm using a 1gb sandisk sd memory card to sync mp3 song on it. THe mp3 songs go on it fine and play on the computer and on the mp3 player ok. The problem is I have about 533mb of space used and have about...

You may have reached the maximum number of files allowed in the root directory of the file system. If you already have a folder on the card, try moving some of the MP3 files into that folder. If you can copy 1 new MP3 file onto the card, that is your problem. Hopefully your MP3 player supports folders!

I can't get songs on my micro SD card for my cell phone

No, Im Sorry But Adaptors Are Incapable Of Holding Memory, And You Shouldn't Take Out The Micro SD Before You Remove The SD Card, You Should Also Try Putting In The Micro SD Card And Going To Tools And Enter Into The Memory Option And Selecting Card, Then Using The Options Button Format It, Then Put It Back Into You Computer And Save All Your Songs To The Folder Named my_music This Should Work, And Just So You Know The Phone Will Not Play All Of The Songs That You Put On It For Some Reason, Its Some Formatting Conflict The Songs Can Be In .wma Format Or .mp3 not .mp4 or any other types.

I have an rca "pearl" with a micro sd slot, what is this for? i put one in and gained no extra capacity for songs, so is it a backup or what and how is it supposed to work?

sir, micro sd slot is a expansion memory of your mp3. like if you dont have any bytes left on your mp3 and you want to add another songs then sd memory card will be the option. so that you can listen a songs from your mp3 internal memory and micro sd memory card. by the way micro sd is cheaper than any other memory card selling in the market.

thank you for using fixya

My gpx wont let me retrieve the songs that i have on it i want the songs off i use to sync with windows 11 but it just shows that the space is used and shuffling the songs doesnt even work.

It is easier to get a SD memory card for it. Drag and drop the music onto the window which represents the SD memory card and then just put the SD memory card into the GPX MP3 player. I have the same MP3 player and it works nice... it was a good deal for the money! Take the savings and invest in a cheap SD memory card and you will be happy.... I was!
:-) Good Luck!

SD Card not showing in my Tomtom go 720 to play MP3

If you want to play mp3 songs from sd card then create mp3 folder and place all the songs in side that folder. Now when you go to Juke box menu it will scan all the songs and you will be able to play them the way you want..
