Re: number of songs

The only thing that you are doing wrong is the format of the song.
the song is taking for too much space so you need to change the format of the song into WMA, or WAV or MP3

My Sansa Clip 2GB MP3 player won't let me add any more songs to it, even though there's 1.26 GB still available. I don't want to reformat the player, cuz that'll delete the songs I already have on there. ...

Hi there..

When you say having difficulty in adding the songs in CLIP, though you have enough space. I'd kindly request you to check for the number of songs that you have added.

Because when you add as MP3 player by default its bit rate is 128kbps so you can add up to 500 songs only. Kindly have a check on it.

I have given the number of songs that can be added with related to size of MP3 player..

Size of the player :512MB 1GB 2GB 4GB 8GB 16GB 32GB
Number of songs : 125 250 500 1000 2000 4000 8000

Kindly revert if any clarifications....

Empty Song Folder - I followed the instructions from the quick start guide to to load music onto my sansa clip 1gb mp3 player and it shows that it copied it to my player but once I disconnect the usb from...

The songs are in the wrong format. They probably have a restrictive DRM license that limits playback on mp3 players (although the songs may play fine on your computer). iTunes format will not work at all. The best way to avoid a problem like this is to only use songs that are in mp3 format.

How do you reformat the sansa E260?

There are several possibilities.

1) The songs that you loaded may not be compatible with the player - iTunes files, for instance.
2) The songs that you downloaded may not have transfer rights - i.e.: they will play fine on a computer, but they will not play on an mp3 player.

The solution to the above two possibilities would be to download songs that are in mp3 format only. They do not have strings, stipulations, headaches, etc. attached to them.

Possibility #3 is that your mp3 player is in the wrong USB Mode. Songs that show up in MSC mode do not show up in MTP mode, and vice versa. To change this, go into your Sansa player's settings menu and change the USB Mode.

Whas the best way to delete songs off the Sansa 250e? ie. "bad tracks"

The songs are in the wrong format or have expired licenses

There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

Shuffle seems to play same songs

The shuffle feature shuffles songs randomly - no way to change the order.

On the Sansa Clip, you have to make the changes to the song order in Windows Media Player first, before you transfer the playlist to the Sansa, using the advanced tag editor function; change the track number. If you have already transferred the song(s) over to the Sansa, you must delete the songs on the Sansa first, or else it will not accept the playlist transfer with the new track order. You can always go back and change the track numbers that are stored in your WMP library after you have transferred the playlist to the Sansa.

Song problem (SanDisk 4gb

This is going to take some investigation on your part. First of all, make sure that the correct song works on your PC. That is, if you launch Don't Wanna Miss A Thing on your PC and Bout It plays, then it's the media file, not the Sansa player. Make sure you launch the specific media file from Windows, NOT from your media player software. You want to check the FILE first. (Reverse the files too - launch Bout It and see what plays) If the files are right, then launch them from your media player software. If they're wrong when you play them from the media player software, check the properties of the song. If everything is okay on the PC, then check the Sansa. If you are directly launching the music file on the Sansa (that is, not from a playlist) and it's wrong, then put the Sansa in MSC mode and check the file. Drag it to your PC and launch it. If it's wrong, replace it. If your launching the file from a playlist, just redo the playlist with the correct file after you've finished your troubleshooting.
