With a Sansa Clip+ only work with Rhapsody? I don't want to have to pay for an account and then also pay for the songs as well.


No, Sansa players work with many types of music files and computers.
You may want to post details about your computer-- Mac, Windows, or Linux?
Also, what computer software do you use for music-- MediaMonkey? Windows Media Player?
Assuming you are using Windows XP--
You may already have songs on your Win XP computer, in Windows Media Player. If so, you can synchronize your player with Win Media Player-- This will load all the songs from your computer onto the Sansa, space permitting.

You can also copy files directly to the Sansa player, just as you copy files to a flash drive:

1) Configure the Sansa Player as a removable drive.
With player unplugged, go to Settings > System Settings > USB Mode
Select MSC

2) Plug the Sansa player into your computer.
The computer will recognize it as a flash drive, and will assign a drive letter.

3) Open Windows Explorer.
Find the directory on your computer that contains music files.
Copy and paste music files into the Music directory on your Sansa player.

4) Using the green arrow, bottom left on the system tray, safely shut down the Sansa player.

5) When you unplug it, the player will spend a minute or two updating its files.

6) Your music should be available to play.

If you are running things on a system other than Win XP, please post more details--
Someone may give you a more exact solution.

Best of luck!

Im trying to see all my music files on windows media player from my sansa e280 device but its only showing the ones I already have on windows media player. I do I see the other files?


connect it to the computer ..and after that open my computer folder and you willfind it like a drive ..(probably named removable disk ..or removable storage device ..) when you open that folder you will have all the music stored in there ..like in a regular folder..you can also add or remove files by copy them and paste into or delete from ..
if you want them to be played into windows media player ..just see the task aside (left ) called play all...and they will be added to the windows media player play-list ..
or ..go back ..to the drive icon into my computer ..and right click on it ..and choose play with...and select the player you want..

How do you delete stuff on your mp3 player


Your SanDisk Sansa Player does not allow you to delete files from within the player. Deleting Music Files On Your Sansa MP3 Player When your player is connected to your computer with the USB connector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files on your player. Your player will appear as Sansa m230 or m240. Follow these steps: Playing Music 1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer. (Can’t find the USB port on your player? See The Basic Controls section on Page 3.) 2. Delete your music files to the player with software tools like Rhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client. 3. To use the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client software to delete files to your player please refer to the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client help file. NOTE: While you can store and organize your audio files on your player using folders with names you select, your player will ignore folders and names. Instead, your Sansa player will extract information from each audio file so that you can use the software menu to navigate your files by artist, album title, song title, and other useful criteria.

How do I delete songs or bad files? Is there any


The easiest way to delete songs or files on your Sansa is to connect it to your computer, open up "My Computer", double-click on the Sansa, then find the files inside the Sansa and delete them using Windows Explorer. Note that if these files are also on your computer's hard drive, and you're using a syncing tool (such as Windows Media Player) to sync songs from your computer to your Sansa, they may be copied back on your Sansa next time you sync, so you'll need to either delete or move the songs on your computer's hard drive, as well.

Whether you can repair a bad file depends on the contents of the file and the nature of the damage. If you believe that you have MP3s that are corrupted, there are utilities out there which will attempt to fix them. Google for "repair corrupted mp3" (or substitute "mp3" with whatever file type you're trying to repair) to find these utilities.

You have to use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

Is there an easy way to delete all the music off of my mp3 player?


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.

Help to recover or repair a corrupted file on my daughter's sansa mp3 player


If the file is corrupted then there is no way for you to play nor listen to it. If the player is saying the file is corrupted and to test if the file is really corrupted please try to do this steps. Connect the player to the computer. Open My Comptuer window and open the player locate the file and try to copy that file to your desktop and play that file. If the file copied and played successfully then that good. If not the only way to prevent this is to format the player. Change the player to MSC mode then connect to the computer and open my computer and right-click on the player and choose format remove the check on the quick format and click start to format the player. Formatting the player will delete all the files and data on the device and it will fix any bad sectors that would cause file corruption on the player.
