Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

Sansa Clip 2Gig skips... sometimes

My new Sansa Clip MP3 (2 Gig) skips (like a CD going over a bump in the road) sometimes when I'm in the car. The song will start, and then start pausing and starting back, etc. Some songs won't play at all. I thought it was a download problem, but at other times the songs play fine. Is there a fix, or do I need to take it back?

Go into My Computer and see if anything pops up once you plug the Sansa in. If it pops up open it up from there. Sometimes this kick starts an Mp3 to install itself.

You do not need special software - it acts like an external drive. Just drag the files to the proper folders on the Sansa or use Windows Media Player to create playlists and sync your player to WMP. Then everytime you update your playlists, your player will be updated when you connect again.

The larger Sansa's like my 8 GIG has software for converting video to play on it, but the screen is too small - you will go cross-eyed trying to watch a movie.

And the best place to get these things is on I paid $10 for my 1 GIG clip! Yee - Haww!

Not working 1gb sansa clip

What does that mean - "music db" ? I put all of my music on my 1 Gig and it works great. I put all Harry Potters audio books on my 8 GIG and still have 1.5 gig left for music.

Every time i put music on it

It is set for random play - go into the menu and change it to sequential play. If you've lost your user manual, you can find it on the Sandisk website, or go here:

Can't download songs

First, reset.
If that fails, then try to download the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool from:
If that still fails, upgrade the firmware from the Sansa website
If that fails, uninstall the software from the installation CD and reinstall it from the Sansa website.
