What does finalizing update mean?

All MP3's are not equal.
The Sandisk only recognises 128Kbps.
If you load 96Kbps you will get the "Finalizing Update" error.
The solution.........disconnect the battery and then reinsert it and immediately connect to the USB connection. Look through the library of recordings and somewhere there will be a non-kosher MP3 file. Delete it and your trouble is over.

Some of my songs play but the new ones say "bad track"

Make sure the files are all compatible with the device (probably Mp3 in this case). Check your instruction manual to find out which files will work on the device. Also, try testing the songs on Windows Media Player. If an error message comes up, the mp3 might be corrupt or has an attachment that makes it not able to play.

Transferring music from pc to mass storage device.


You said that you checkd the properties of all the 150 tracks right.

150 tracks is 560 MB.

The error message you are getting informs that there is nothing wrong with the player or something.

This eror rfers that the source file cannot be located by the system to transfer or the source file is corrupted.

Try the other source file.

Try transferring the other newly downloaded file.

Hope it helps.

Good Luck.

Notification "Cannot play"

The songs are in the wrong format.

The format of the songs are wrong in one way or another. Each Mp3 player has a product spec sheet that lists which type of music file it is compatible with (Mp3, WMA, WAV, AAC, etc). You can't play iTunes songs, which are AAC format, on a player that only accepts Mp3 or WMA format.

The second formatting issue has to do with the DRM license on the songs you have downloaded. Right click a song that gave you an error, click on "Properties," and click on the "License," "Media Usage Rights," or "Digital Rights Mgmt" tab (wording varies by configuration). Not every song allows unlimited or even one-time transfer to a "portable device" (code word for "Mp3 player" in this case). Also, some songs are fixed-term - they expire after a while - sometimes in as little as 24 hours.

To get around this, convert every song to Mp3 format. Either that, or upgrade your music service subscription to the highest pkg they have available and never cancel (Napster's basic music svc, for instance, does not let you transfer to an Mp3 player, but their "Napster To Go" upgrade does allow transfer).

Mp3 Files not shown on file list

Hello, i had this problem as well. I deleted the files and ran an MP3 convertor program. For some reason, not all MP3 files appear to be compatible with the Sansa. Try downloading Switch from which is freeware and is a very small and useful program. I tried this with invisible tracks and tracks that appear as "bad track" as well.

Hope this helps.
