Re: Downloading from Itunes

Your Itunes library may consist of MP4 (Itunes format) files, WAV files, and MP3 files. If you're attempting to transfer MP4 files to your MP3 player, then no it will not work. You'll need to convert them to MP3 format first.

Here's the really bad news...the only way to convert an ITunes MP4 song is to first burn it to a CD. Then you need software to pull the song from the burned CD back into your computer in whatever format you choose. Nero is an example of software that will accomplish this. I use rewritable CD's to do this so you don't waste a bunch of disks.

This was by design from your friends at Apple.

Hope this helps.

How do I download my Itunes onto the sansafuze?

First of all iTunes does not support any product that is not made by Apple, so you won't be able to sync your Sansa with iTunes. But there is another way, first you need to find out if the music in your iTunes library is the format, do this by right clicking several songs and clicking either "Properties" or "Get Info" or something like that. A window will pop up, look under "Kind," if it doesn't say MPEG audio file or MP3 then it needs to be converted to MP3 format. Now in iTunes(if your running windows) choose "File" and select "Preferences," now click "Import Settings" c64a1ba.png and under "Import to" select "MP3 Encoder." 41565a6.pngNow go to music and in the upper right corner of the iTunes window next to search, select the "List" view or click "View" and select "As List." 00e23ba.pngNow highlight all your songs by clicking the top song, holding shift down and hold down the page down arrow until all the songs are highlighted, now right click over the highlighted songs and click "Create MP3 Version" a59eab9.png

Now you just need to move all the songs to Windows Media Player or to any other Media Player that will work with your Player. Once this is done, plug your Sansa into your computer and open up your Media PLayer and sync it!I hope this helps!

I cannot download songs from itunes onto my sansa

This can get quite difficult due to copyright problems. Even though you legally purchased the music, ITunes uses something called Digital Rights Management to keep people from doing anything illegal with their products. In addition, the Sansa media player most likely does not support MP4 format, which is what ITunes plays music in. Hopefully, you dont have many songs you are wanting to do this with. You have 1 of 3 options that I know of:

1. -Burn all files onto a blank cd.
-Re-load the files into itunes from the blank cd (Import) (This
strips the DRM and should allow you to put the music into a
foreign player). You will, however, lose the artwork from the
songs and will have to re-name them most likely.
-You will also have duplicate songs in ITunes until you delete
the copy you dont want (or keep it).
2. Purchase a software like noteburner which can strip DRM for
you (does the same as option 1, just cleaner). Costs approx.
3. Trade the Sansa for an IPOD.

Want to use iTunes files in my GoGear Philipps SA3245

Actually it's not me . . .
It's Yahoo Answers . . .
You will find the MP3 setting in the iTune menu bar under . . .
iTune . . . Preferences . . . General . . . Import Settings . . . Import Using: MP3 Encoder . . .
You will need to transfer the files to your GoGear using Finder . . . I tried it . . . and it does work . . .

Using iTune cards for Sansa Clip MP3 Player

Sansa MP3 players will not play iTunes songs. Only iPods play iTune songs. Visit Limewire to download songs that you can play on your MP3 player.

Unable to download itunes from itunes library to sandisk clip mp3

Make sure the files are in MP3 or WMA file format. If they are in a different file format other than the ones above convert them because for audio those two are the file format that the sansa clip supports. Im not sure but iTunes convert songs to AAC or MP4 depending on the settings of it.

The best way to transfer songs tot he sansa clip is to change the mode of the player to MSC by going to Settings and then USB Mode. This would help detect the drive as a flash drive so you could copy and paste songs to it.

Just go to the file menu in itunes. Use one of the import buttons. You can import your whole library, some files, or individual songs. Then upload them to the ipod by selecting songs and adding them to the ipod play list.

I know there is a way around using itunes, by setting the ipod to be used as data storage and then using it like any other mp3 player transfering directly from your library. I have never used it this way so I can't help any more then that. I had already been settled with using itunes before i found out about that, otherwise i likely would have.
