Make sure the music files are in the Music folder on the player, also if there is option to manual update the player try that and restart.

THE SONGS I SYNCED WILL NOT PLAY ON MY SHAKER.


The Sansa Shaker supports only .mp3 and .wav file formats. It is possible that you have synced WMA or M4A audio files that have DRM protection. These formats are not supported by the SANSA SHAKER.
Songs purchased through Amazon or copied from your music collection in mp3 format will play on your SHAKER.

How to use it


dear sir,

kindly connect the device to p.c with a data cable and your device will be detected in a couple of seconds....once the device is being detected in the removable device list,double click to open it and you will find a folder named music(if you dont find,then create a new folder and title as music.....)

copy few music files and put in that folder from p.c to that folder....

now disconnect from p.c and turn on ur player and now you can see the songs you have copied to ur player and press the play button to play the songs....

All music files show empty-then i connected to computer, it showed files were there but wouldn't play. Erased using computer and reloaded okay but doesn't show up on list???


Hi oroberts62,
Are you sure the music files you're trying to play is of the correct format? A .mp3 extension doesn't always mean the encoding is in mpeg-3 layer audio. Try re encoding all the music files using a free encoder or converter, then seeing if they show up on the player.

When I open up my sansa e250 files in my computer, I cannot locate the file where my music is stored. The files that appear are my photo, video, record, and a tmp file. The tmp file has nothing in it.


are you able to see all your music files in your sansa player? if yes, try to play those songs from your mp3 player. then you can format your mp3 player directly without connecting to the computer. before doing that check whether you have all the files as backup. after formatting, once again transfer all the songs, files you need. this solve your problem.

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 www.download.com 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.

Re-formatted Sansa e260 - still 1.4 GB (out of 4GB) tied up


I'm going to try this suggestion from Sansa:

Thanks again for calling SanDisk Technical Support. It is our goal to make sure you have all the resources you need to get the most from your product.

There may still be music hidden in Rhapsody mode that you can't see.

To find this music go to the Tools menu in the upper left corner from any open folder in Windows XP.

Choose the last option, Folder Options

A dialog box will appear, choose the View tab and you will see a list of options.

Find and select the Show hidden files and folders option. Then click Apply, then OK in that order.

This will make any hidden files on your computer visible.

Now open My Computer and double click on the mp3 player to open it.
You should see a few grayed out folders. We will be looking for MUSIC and SYSTEM.

Open the Music folder to see if there are files there to delete.

Open the SYSTEM folder and look for a second Music folder deleting this folder will free A LOT of space..all of the pre-loaded music for Rhapsody channels.

Disconnect the device and check the free space.
