On my new computer , I have had a hard time syncing music to my Sandisk mp3 player. I can do any CD to the mp3 player, but if I download a song from limewire or frostwire, the songs dont show up in the media player like on my past computer.
Re: trouble getting downloaded songs to my mp3 player
I think I had this same problem. Look on your computer for the limewire folder. For instance I saved mine to my documents. open the folder. Ther should be a sub folder marked saved. This is where all my songs go to once they have completed on Limewire. good Luck :)

Freezing up while playing songs Check and see if there is a boot file in any of the folders on the player use the Explorer to check Check both MTP and MSC modes and unhook your player Recovery Mode: download the update software and install then lock your sansa hold in the rec key on the left at the same time push the menu/power button this will take you to recovery mode then connect to the computer Start the update software if it doesn't start automatic goto /start /all programs /Sandisk/sansa updater/ sansa updater and start it up manually... follow instructions on the updater and the sansa. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_95hLqZxCHc&feature=related here is a link to a kid showing you how to goto recovery mode. Update software from this link..

Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders them selfs then format a couple of times hope this works
First, you have songs into your computer. Then, plug the device to computer and use one of two ways to download music to your Sansa Clip:
1. Select songs you want transfer, drag & drop them into Music folder in the device.
2. Use Windows Media Player: plug device to pc, open windows media player, click on Sync tab, drag and drop songs selected to Sync List space (on the right side of wmp), click on Start Sync button to transfer.
You have to use Windows Media Player to transfer songs from your computer to the Sansa. If the songs are already on your computer, then you are good to go. Just open up Windows Media Player, click on the sync tab, and then drag files to the sync area, and click Start Sync. If the songs are not already there, do yourself a favor - only sign up to a music service that gives you the songs in mp3 format. WMA's are too problematic, and will lead you to ask a million questions and deal with a million problems. Stick to Mp3 format only, and you should be good to go.
I am also a user of SanDisk. They will not give any CD with it. Try using below steps to download the music.
1. Movies and Music should be in MP3 format. 2. Plugin SanDisk to Computer. 3. System will open new drive in "My Computer" name as Sansa e250 . 4. Copy music,movies and past it into Sansa Drive.
There is another good feature in SanDisk. You can also record the song from FM Radio.
At the time of listining song from FM press Rec button. Song will get saved in your SanDisk.
If you have Windows Media Player then,
Insert the CD into the drive
then In WMP click on the RIP tab and rip the songs from the CD
Then go to the SYNC tab and plug in the mp3 player and you should be able to transfer music from the computer to the mp3 player, any other questions, please post
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: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
