Question about SanDisk Sansa Shaker SDMX9N-512 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I cant get my sons new Shaker to play anything now. No idea what he did.

I had it loaded with MP3 songs from disks that I had and it worked on a trip but once I got there I cannot get it to start playing. I can turn it off and on but it won't play. Any ideas? It used to work. He only had it in the car so I know he did not drop it.

Help!

It can only be mp3 format. ONLY MP3. Convert all your music to this format only using this website:
http://www.wma-mp3.org/
be patient the site is very busy
Even if your file has been renamed to a mp3 file it will not work until you convert the files.
I have 2 of these and had to do this with all my music. Then after conversion click and drag the songs.

My shaker does not play all of the loaded songs.


I had the same problem. The songs that won't play are probably MP4 files and the shaker only plays MP3 files. You need to change the file format of the songs on the shaker to MP3 files. I downloaded "Media Coder" which was free and it converted all the songs on the shaker that wouldn't play to MP3 files and they play now. Google "Media Coder" and download the free program, it is very easy to use. I had the songs converted in about 2 minutes. Make sure the shaker is plugged into computer so that you can choose the files on the shaker to convert. Hope this helps.

Oops i think i messed my shaker up!!!


Hello the mp3 docter says you should go to the site for stuff but that's not really necessary. Don't get me wrong he might be right. as a matter of fact he is kinda right but I have an easier way of doing it go to your sansa in my computer right click it and choose format and that will take all your problems away. Hope I helped bye!

I bought one of these for my son this Christmas and it's been nothing but problems.

It wouldn't play songs in folders. So i deleted the folders and dropped in mp3's and it played fine for a while. Then it just stopped working. Changed the battery and it still wouldn't work. Plugged it into our PC and couldn't access the sandisk at all. Windows would recognize the device but upon clicking on it I was asked to insert a disk into the drive.

Two days later I try again and this time it insists that the drive has not been formatted. So I format the drive, losing all the data that I couldn't access anyway and I was finally able to drag more songs onto the players disk. All of the songs previously on the player were gone of course.

It played fine for a few minutes but then it began to shut off after about 20 seconds of play. I double checked the format on the songs on the player to make sure they were mp3. I tried using different songs - same results. And now it's returned to my original problem. I can't access the sandisk and windows is asking me to insert a disk into the drive.

This very simple to use player is so simple that's it's a defective piece of junk.

Sansa shaker not playing


Funny I found this forum because I've been having the same problem. My understanding is that subscription services (yahoo music, iTunes, etc.) don't come in an mp3 file format. You can, however, add songs from cd's you own.

Here's a link you might find helpful. It's from the Sansa Forums. One of the posters describes how you can convert files. I don't know how complicated it is. Good luck! :)

I understand your frustration! I've been having the same problem. I just wasted TWO HOURS trying to get music to download onto this Shaker. The extra $40 for a better device would have been worth it! I can't afford to buy all the cd's that I'd need to fill this player with the songs my son likes. I'm thinking of bringing it back!

Only plays some songs


The Shaker only plays songs in MP3 format.

If you Ripped (copied) CD's to your PC with Windows Media Player, the default settings are as WMA.

You will need to delete these and re-copy them to your PC, then transfer to the Shaker.





Best of Luck.
