How do I delete duplicate songs on my Nano 4gb Ipod? How do I adjust the volume?

Using iTunes' "Show Duplicate Items" feature, you can locate and manually remove duplicate songs on your iTunes music library. Once the library is cleaned, you need only sync iTunes with your iPod to remove duplicates from your device as well. This guide takes iTunes 12 to remove song duplicates.
  1. In iTunes, click "View > Show Duplicate Items" in Music module;
  2. Compare the listed song duplicates upon artist, album, date added, genre, play count, size, bit rate, and more to determine which item to keep and which item to remove;
  3. Hold the "Ctrl" key and click each duplicate you wish to delete.
  4. Connect your iPhone 6 to PC, click your iPhone from the device list, hit "Music" and select "Sync" to sync your library using your existing sync settings.
By doing this, you could delete duplicate songs on iPod from your iTunes. But it will eat a lot time of you. To save your time, let's come to the 2nd method - using 3rd-party iTunes cleaner program.

How do I get the downloaded music from my computer into the clip?

You have 2 ways to transfer your songs from your computer to your sansa clip:
1. Plug sansa clip to computer, double click on "Sansa Clip ...GB", double click on "Internal Memory", you will see the file "Music", copy your songs and paste them into Music file of the device.
2. Using Windows Media Player: open windows media player, plug sansa clip into computer, click on Sync tab, select songs that you want to sync, drag and drop song selected into "Sync list" on the right side of the windows media player (you should update wmp11), then click on button Start Sync.

Good luck

Probelm with playlists

The Vista compatible software may work different, but I have mine set to Repeat OFF, and I have no problem with playlist play. Is it possible that the songs that you put on your playlist are in the wrong format? If they were streaming files, or DRM-encrypted WMA's, there may be issues with playback. Convert the songs in your playlists to mp3 format ON THE COMPUTER, and then delete the playlists that are not working OFF YOUR SANSA. And then re-add the playlists to your Sansa.

Data Refresh

The simple answer is to edit the genre data of your hard rock songs from "Hard Rock" to "HardRock" (remove the space). This sounds stupid but it causes the e280 to freeze during the refresh database phase after writing songs to the device.

I've also noticed that some genres are renamed from what they actually are. Soul, for example, shows up as Punk in the genre list of the e280. Southern Rock displays as Comedy. Mine has version 3.01.11 firmware. I renamed "Soul" to "Soul-" to get rid of the Punk tag, and "Southern Rock" to "SouthernRock" to get rid of the Comedy tag. "Ballad" shows up as "unknown" so I change it to "SoftRock" to solve that issue.

I haven't tried other genres so if you don't have any hard rock songs on your player, try renaming the genres tags to something else to see if it solves your problem.
