Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

1 Answer

Can't find files in music folder

The computer recognized the MP3 player, I found the music folder, copied CD's into the folder but can't find them on the player. When I check, they're still in the folder when attached to the computer, but the only music I can find when I want to listen is the music the player came with.

First, try this. Delete all the music that you have in your Sansa while it is connected to your computer (BESIDES Angel, Return of the Champion, Cobblestoned Waltz, and Babylon of the Orientals). Then, put in your CD's again and copy them all into a folder on your computer, and save them. Hit My Computer, and go into the folder with the CD's imported songs in it. Next, open Windows Media Player. Highlight by Shift+Clicking and Ctrl+Clicking the songs you want in the folder and right click on them and hit "Add to Now Playing List" in the drop-down menu. Then, go to Windows Media Player and hit the Sync tab, go to "Views" menu, click on the "Now Playing List" option, and drag all the songs into the Sansa tab on the right.


THIS IS FOR VIIIISTTTAAA. If you do not have Vista, I am sorry but I cannot help with that. (Maybe get Vista :-))

Thanks,
Big Tony

How do i get music on my mp3 player


If you are goin to download music from your computer
first you need a data cable that will connect your mp3 player to your computer. You should have gotten one with the player
i download music from a free music download site. most downloadable music is already in mp3 format so you just have to drag and drop the music. after you connect the mp3 player to your computer the computer should recognize it and list it in my computer along with the hard drive and cd rom drives. there are a couple of ways of adding music from here. you can copy and paste music from your computer, to do this you just have to click on the mp3 player in my computer, a page should open that says internal memory this is the internal memory of the mp3 player click on that, a list of folders should come up. there should be one for photos and one for videos, a few others and one for music. if you copy a song or group of songs from wherever in your computer that you have your music stored you can click back to the folder page. left click on the songs and click copy then click back to the internal memory page, put your mouse pointer over the music folder, left click and hit copy the song or songs will be copied into the music folder and can be accessed in the mp3 player. remember you can hold the control button down on your keyboard and select as many songs as you want to copy. If you want to transfer songs from a music cd you have to first load the cd and transfer the music to your computer. then you have to use a convertor, they are downloadable on the internet for free, then convert the music that you took off the cd to an mp3 format and then use the same steps as above to put the music on your mp3 player. If you are familiar with using your windows explorer on your computer you can open it and just drag the files from the folders they are in into the internal memory folders of your mp3 player.
On a lot of mp3 players the webpage for the product has a program that allows you to convert files and put them onto your mp3 player in one step. you could check the website for the product to see if they offer one.

Mp3


if it doesn't sync, don't worry just open the folder where the music files are stored on your computer, connect your Sony Walkman to your computer and highlight the music files you want to add to the Walkman and select (copy these files) a windows will open for you to select the place you want to copy to, select your mp3 player and click on copy to copy the selected music to your Walkman

NOTE: if you Sony Walkman has a specific folder for music files, you need to move the songs you copied from your hard drive's music folder to the music folder on your mp3 player for the player to recognize the songs in order to play.
