I am computer illiterate so this may be a long one. I have a Sansa Fuze MP3 Player 8gb Silver. Also I already have a Itunes account and library can I drop library into the Mp3 player or is their a website...

It is my understanding that downloaded iTunes music only works with iPod products. However, you can create your iTunes music into MP3 format in your iTunes library. Your MP3 player should come with the software needed or tell you which application to use (ex. Windows Media Player). After you've created an MP3 version you can import/export into the proper media application then sync to your MP3 player.

Info I found on the web about your MP3 player:

Compatible Formats

The player supports MPEG4 video files and audio files saved in MP3, secure and unsecured WMA, WAV, Audible, and Overdrive file formats.

Simply connect the player to a PC, and start dragging files from your Windows Media Player 10 or 11 applications.

How do you download music to the sana shaker

You can either use the drag and drop method or download using Windows Media Player - I have written something in the Tips and Tricks section on using Windows Media Player to transfer music.

I can't gewt music from my ITunes library into my shaker

The Sansa Shaker is not compatible with iTunes. You will have to use another music service, like Limewire or Rhapsody.

Sansa mp3 shaker

I have found that the best way to add and remove music is through my computer. Use two windows - 1 mp3 player and other song location folder.(manipulate folder boxes to have them side by side on monitor).
Once you achieve that, simply drag and drop from one to the other.
Good luck.

Loading My ITunes library into new Sansa Clip

Hey guyi,

According to information provided by the manufacturer (Sandisk), the Sansa Clip MP3 player can use two different methods to upload songs: a simple drag-and-drop interface, or syncronizing the player with Windows Media Player.

With the traditional drag-and-drop interface, you would need to connect the player to your computer and select the "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer" option when it is presented. Once you have done this, you should be able to double-click on the "Sansa" player and then the "Music" folder. After this folder has been opened, you should be able to drag and drop (or copy/paste) the files into this folder to upload them to the player.

For more information or instructions on how to add files to your Sansa music library using Windows Media Player however, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or the following link on the manufacturer's website:

Unfortunately Windows Media Player does not currently appear to support the ability to directly import iPod playlists, but if you keep most of your music files in the same folder/directory on your computer, both programs should be able to share the same music library. Please keep in mind that this may only apply to music that you loaded onto the computer yourself and other unprotected file formats that both programs recongize (like .MP3 files), and may not necessarily apply to copy-protected songs downloaded from iTunes or other online music services.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

It can only be mp3 format. ONLY MP3. Convert all your music to this format only using this website:
be patient the site is very busy
Even if your file has been renamed to a mp3 file it will not work until you convert the files.
I have 2 of these and had to do this with all my music. Then after conversion click and drag the songs.
