Well to purchase the rights for the song you can (and should !!) use Napster. Its completely legal, the software is free. You can choose to pay per month for a thing called napster to go. You can have that cause your mp3 player is comatible with that special. its 15 $ a month, you get unlimited downloads to your mp3 player! and all legally. Or you have the option to buy songs or albums for 1,19$ the song or about 9,99$ the album. And the selection of artist is huge. go to for usa, and for canada.

SOURCE: Won't play certain songs

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.
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:

How do i download music to my mp3

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files onto your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player.
For CD disks you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Loaded songs from cds ripped to computer. When itry ro play the songs on the media player, I get a 'format error'

Your getting a format error because the format of the song,video,etc
you are trying to play is not the format needed by your MP3 player to
play the song,video,etc.
Always check in your owners manual to find out what format your player
Once you have determined what the format you have (MP3,MP4,ACC,WMA,etc.)
you will need to determine what format you need for your player to play
those songs,video,etc.
If the format that you have for your songs,videos,etc is different than
the format that you need for your player to play them, then you will
have to download a format converter and convert each song,video,etc to
the format that is usable in your MP3 player.

Hello, we are new to mp3 players, and when we try to play a song it says format error

Hi laura and tom,
Mp3 players can be fussy about which format of songs they want to play. Generally mp3, m4a, mp2, wma - these work fine. Consult the documentation provided for more details on which formats are supported. You'll then have to encode all your songs in the mp3(or other accepted) formats. There are countless ways to do this, both online and offline - I can only suggest the freeware MediaMonkey for Mp3 conversions. If you search around on the web I'm sure you'll find a lot more, if you need.

80G Ipod Classic skips songs

Try converting the songs into a different format because the format that the song is in might not completely be played on the ipod. Right click on the song and click on convert to mp3. Then try transferring the mp3 format song onto the ipod and it should play right then.
