Re: mp3 format??? HELP, PLEASE!

I don't know about converting the MP3s to WMAs, but I had the same problem with "corrupt files."
What fixed that for me was instead of dragging and dropping files onto the Sansa, I synchronized them using Windows Media player, but only do 10-20 songs at a time, because if you try to do too many, they probably won't show up. I know it's tedious and annoying, but that's what did it for mine :) I hope this helps.

ITunes and sansa

it is not possible. unless you have an AAC/MP3 converter, it won't go on the sansa. apple format is not compatible with sansa players. however, there are a number of free or inexpensive sites where you can get MP3 format tracks.

Mp3 format??? HELP, PLEASE!

No You Don't Have To Converter The Tracks. It Depends On How You Put The Tracks On Your Sansa, Do You Drag And Drop Or Do You Sync With Copy To Device In Windows Media Player 9, Or Sync In Windows Media Player

Player doesn't display some files

where did you get the songs from? make sure the files are in mp3 file format not in another format and make sure they are playing properly before transferring them to the player. The player can support MP3 and WMA files. IF you are sure they are mp3 format the player using USB mode and then retransfer them to the player.
