I've own my player going on 2 years. Did not have a problem loading or unloading music in windows media player - until this weekend. Took off a bunch of christmas music and decided to format the drive to put new music on. The first problem was that it would not sync any music. So downdoaded a firmware update. Tried again to sync and it seemed to be fixed until I tried the player and the music was not there. The computer says it is and can see it on the player, in both the window media player and thru the link in my computer. WHAT DO YOU THINK IS HAPPENING? I can see the music on the sd mini and it will play from there.

Loading Music You can transfer music from your computer to the Sansa® MP3 player using the drag-and-drop method or using music management software like Windows Media Player. Drag and Drop (Windows) Follow these steps to drag-and-drop music to your Sansa® Clip+ MP3 player: 1. Connect your Sansa® Clip+ player to your PC. 2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial connection or by going to My Computer. 3. Double-click on the Sansa Clip+ MP3 player. 4. Double-click on Internal Memory. 5. Double-click on the Music folder. 6. Drag and drop music files from your computer to the Sansa® MP3 player’s Music folder. You can also drag and drop files to a microSD™ card inside your player by going to My Computer > Sansa Clip+ > External uSD Card.
1. First, you have songs saving in your computer.
2. You have 2 ways to put music on the Sandisk Sansa Clip:
2.1. Plug device into computer, Drag and Drop music from your computer into "Music" folder of the Sandisk Sansa Clip.
2.2. Use Windows Media Player in your computer to transfer songs to your device; Plug device to computer, open Windows Media Player, click on Sync tab, drag and drop music into "Drag items here " on the right side of the windows media player, click on Start Sync button.
The songs ripped from CD are not in the right format. In Windows Media Player, highlight the Rip tab, click the black arrow under the Rip tab, select Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3. Now, re-rip the songs. Before you transfer these tracks to the player, make sure you delete the tracks that are on the mp3 player now, or else Windows Media Player wil ltell you that the tracks are already there. Now, transfer the newly-ripped Mp3 tracks to your Sansa. Should be good to go.
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there. Either under sync pane in windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete. Hope this helps If you still not able to delete it let me know so I can have you try something else... P.S.Please rate accordingly... Thank You Computerrep
You cannot see the music under Windows Media Player?
If you transferred the music on another computer and the music does not "reside" on the PC you are connecting to, you will not be able to see them.
You can go to My Computer and double-click on the Device Name (Sansa m230) to open up the contents to "manually" manage the music.
Best of Luck.
