I don't know for sure, but most likely the problem is that iTunes keeps songs in AAC format, and the Garmin wants them in MP3 format.
If that's the case, then what you need to do is this:
in iTunes, build a playlist of the songs you want to export. Click on that playlist to show the list of songs Click on the first song in the list, then hold SHIFT and click on the last song in the list so they're all highlighted. Select the menu option "Make and MP3 copy". Apple keeps moving this option, so you may have to hunt for it, depending on the version of iTunes you have.
This should leave the nice-quality AAC versions alone, but also make MP3 copies of each song. Copy the MP3 files to the SD card and try that in your Garmin.
When you put them on your card they are just that on your card (may not show up on your playlist) Some phones (like my blackberry and pocket pc) you have to add them to the card then go directly to the memory card to play them from your phone. There should also be an option to add your songs from the memory card to your playlist. Try selecting the memory card (through your phone) and checking the options to see if one says ad to playlist. If not do the other way around. Go t your playlist and add songs (from the SD card) if should ask you from where and you can select the memory card. All else fails you can go to any cell phone store and they can do it (its easier to do it looking at the phone then over the pc...smile)
I expected to find the new playlists on the SD card as a separate file to access and play. Instead the SD card songs show on up the Sansa menu simply added among the existing songs / artists stored in the Sansa. Its not a solution but they are there. Since using the SD card, my Sansa does databse refresh everytime it starts, whether SD card is in it or not.
If you are asking how to add songs to you iPod (assuming you want to use iTunes)
Sync your iPod with iTunes
Connect your iPod to your computer.
When the iPod icon appears in the iTunes window (below Devices), select it.
If the Summary pane isn't showing, click the Summary tab.
To automatically sync your iPod:
Make sure that "Manually manage music" is not selected.
Click the Music tab and do one of the following:
automatically update your iPod with all the songs and playlists in your
library, select "Sync music" and then select "All songs and playlists."
iTunes loads the songs and playlists in your iTunes library onto your
iPod, and deletes songs from your iPod that aren't in your library.
automatically update your iPod with only certain playlists, select
"Sync music" and "Selected playlists," and then select the playlists
you want synchronized.
To manually sync your iPod:
Make sure that "Manually manage music" is selected.
Click Music (below Library, on the left side of the iTunes window) and then drag songs and playlists to your iPod.
One of the pesky features of windows Media Player is that if you delete the song/playlist from the computer's harddrive, and then resync your device to that same computer, then oftentimes the song/playlist disappears. Reacquire the song/playlist, and then try resyncing to the goGear again.
I got this from:http://www.livedigitally.com/2005/06/27/sandisk-sansa-e130-the-micro-version-of-the-ipod-mini/
Create two playlists with names such as
1. SANSA Internal and
2. SANSA 2GB (assuming your SD card is 2gb).
Load songs into each playlist.
Edit the sync properties for each drive to only sycn to those playlists.
