Whenever the player is tried to open, automatically it gets switched off and I am not able to operate the same and hear songs

I think you might have formatted the Mp3 player using wrong format...
connect the player to the computer using an usb cable. It will open as a removable disk. Just make a right click on the removable disk and select "FORMAT"
Select the file system as FAT32 and format it using the default allocation size... Now load songs to your player, it should work....

When i went to put some more songs on it it wiped everything and now "says no files" when i try to put a song on it wants to re-format disk? but i aint using a disk?

Although your player is equipped with flash memory and not disk, your device will appear on your computer as a drive named as "removable disk". You can re-format this:
Use windows explorer and right click on this drive and choose from the pull down menu the "format" option. The type of format should be FAT or FAT32.
Then your player will be empty, no media files will exist and you can use your device again.
Take care certain type of players must not be formatted using windows but only with its own software.
You should look for this in its user manual.
Good luck!

Tranfering songs problem

Go to My Computer in your start menu and double click while your mp3 player is connected to your PC. You will see your player listed there, right click on it and select format, you can select quick format. This will get rid of any large files taking up space. Now start adding music again. Also, when ripping music to your computer, your want to make sure you rip as Mp3, not wave, as wave files are much larger. Let me know how that works for you.

My mp3 player has nothing on it but the space is used by something and when i try to put songs on it it say disk space full insert new disk

Reformat the player to make the computer read the player correctly again:

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

My sansa does not recognize most of the songs

This could be a bug, and you may need to update your mp3 player also the drivers.

Below is the link to your mp3 players drivers just choose the options that match your mp3 player and download and trying then.

I would recommened you to format your mp3 player for before installing any drivers or updates.

If you don't how to format follow these steps.

Click on "Start" - "My Computer" - look for something called "Removavle Disk" which should be your mp3 player. Once you've found that right click on it and click "Format". Once format is complete then go to the site and update the drivers.

Then try putting music on and seeing if it's fixed.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

Hi there!
Have you tried formatting the mp3 player?
If not, try this:

The mp3 player way for formatting:
By formatting on the mp3 player, it has be on either pause or stop button. Play button will not open the Initialize menu.
So go to menu, settings, scroll down to Initialize, and then click format. It should say OK?
click yes.
A quick Format done screen should pop up.

The computer way is much longer but cleaner.
Go to my computer.
Right click the removable disk (or it would say whatever you named it to be)
and click format.
A screen should come up with some info like capacity and File system.
Forget all that and click Start.
It should probably take 2 minutes.
Then try it once more.

Okay, after it's done formatting, go to Sonicstage and click the Transfer button. After a few moments it should recognize the mp3 player and display the memory.

If it says something way below 400MB, then you have a big problem. However, anything higher than 470MB is correct.

Now Sony say 345 songs and they are correct...that only if you use their conversion tool, which is in the transfer bar. You would have to convert all your songs into their ATRAC 3 form, and that usually takes about 1 Hr for at least 200 songs. (yea I know) But that's the only way you can stuff 345 songs into it.
I almost filled it to 350, but it was on 64 KBPs for their ATRAC3. Sound quality was not bad, but it wasn't that great.

Hopefully this helped!
Please contact me if you need any more help!
