Re: ipod to sandisk
Did you purchased those songs from itunes? you got to make sure the songs you are trying to transfer doenst have any DRM licence in it...I believe your device comes with a software that hekps you convert mp3 to mp4...what kind of device do you have?

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format:-
The easiest way that I have found to put music onto non-ipod MP3 players is to use a program called MediaMonkey. Just ensure that your MP3 player is plugged in when you start the program and it will show up on the left hand panel of the program. For further clarification please reply.
Hi, i think the format of the music downloaded into the mp3 player is not the right format for the player...
You will need to know the right format before you can be able to play music . You can know the format of the music file that can play on your mp3 player by Checking any music inside the mp3 player details that plays and convert any file that you want to put inside the mp3 player .. If you don't have any converter, you can download any converter of your choice from the below link>:
you first have to rip the contents of the cd to your itunes (or whatever media player you use). then you can move them to your ipod from your music library.
the issue is that when songs are on an audio cd, they're in a particular format (some refer to the format as an "analog" format) that can only be read by cd players and cd drives. so when you add music to your computer, you usually have to change the format of the music to something like "mp3", which is a common digital format that most/all digital media devices (such as your ipod) can read.
Try to format your device using windows media player if you have not done so...do not use my computer to format the device because you will delete the firmware also...should you need help formatting the device inside windows media player, let me know...
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
