You might have to reformat your MP3 player. First make sure you have a good backup of your songs. Then reformat the memory card or memory on the H116 MP3 player and re-copy the songs back to it.

How do I get the downloaded music from my computer into the clip?

You have 2 ways to transfer your songs from your computer to your sansa clip:
1. Plug sansa clip to computer, double click on "Sansa Clip ...GB", double click on "Internal Memory", you will see the file "Music", copy your songs and paste them into Music file of the device.
2. Using Windows Media Player: open windows media player, plug sansa clip into computer, click on Sync tab, select songs that you want to sync, drag and drop song selected into "Sync list" on the right side of the windows media player (you should update wmp11), then click on button Start Sync.

Good luck

Not enough space for music db. Please free 6 MB.

If you have formatted there is no music on the player. You will have to re-sync any the music. Set the USB mode to MTP, then Use Windows Media Player 10 or higher to sync player.

Files invisible to Windows still play, can't delete.

This will format your Sansa c200 player’s internal memory. (and erase all songs therein)
1) Select Settings from the Main Menu.
2) Select Format.
3) Select Yes to format the internal memory or No to cancel.

you may need to go to My Computer and right click on the drive that your mp3 player is in and click on auto play. if that doesnt work, go to windows media player, if you have it, and go to the sync tab so that the computer will read your mp3 player

Files , I want to delete are invisible.. when searching device files...

It's kind of crazy, but here's what works for me (pain in the **** too). Some of the songs, you can see in explorer IF you set the MP3 player to Autodetect. The rest of the songs you can see if you switch to MSC.

So to be able to see all of the songs, I need to switch from one to another. I suppose that if I reformat the mp3 player (after having backed up all songs). Then I can choose just one mode to upload the songs.

I'm guessing that it has to do with differences with rhapsody, windows music player from XP and windows music player from Vista. But not sure.

Go to MENU>> Settings>> USB >> and switch between 'auto detect' and MSC.

i have used quite a few mp4 players and encountered this problem several times - the solution that worked for me is :

Format the drive when it syncs to your computer -- a quick format will do and then it should let you copy the songs to it

just in case you don't know how to format it

1) Right click the MP4 player drive

Can you play WMA's on Sansa Mp3 model e250?

the sansa e250 will play wma files, as per Sandisk.
The problem is you bought them from a download service so there DRM protected.
The easiest way I found to remove them is to use tunebite .
Cost is about $30 or you can find it on P2P sites or newgroups.

The down side is it takes about 14 hours to convert 5 gigs worth of music. But you can then play it on anything.

TIP: convert the files to mp3 not wma so they can be used on practically any player

@szwaan wma stands for "windows media audio"

Ipod problem - playing songs in order

sounds like you need a new hard drive, which has a little read-write disk in it that is getting finicky... just to get more use out of it lay it on side or other positions and hear if works ok...if so its diffently Hard drive. you know the sandisks are 2 gigs no moving parts why doesnt somebody put 20 together making 40 gigs and replace the failing Ipods!!??? just pure electronics and no moving parts and much smaller...not like a hard drive. I thought of this over 30 years ago looking at the first plug in video game.

Won't upload media

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
