I can't gewt music from my ITunes library into my shaker

The Sansa Shaker is not compatible with iTunes. You will have to use another music service, like Limewire or Rhapsody.

iTunes works with iPods only. You can probably use Windows Media Player though.

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!

Hi could someone please help me

I had this problem and replaced the memory card with a new one and the sansa shaker began working perfectly. I don't know if the problem is with how the music was downloaded onto the card or if it was just a defective card.

You should not use a program to manage your music on the Sansa Shaker. Just use My Computer to manually drag & drop files onto the device. Also, you can format the device thru My Computer, right click on the device and select format, this will erase everything on the device. Best of Luck
