Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Cannot be imported to sansa media

Files/songs cannot be dragged to media converter. A window states that it
"cannot import, make sure it is a valid file type and that it is not corrupted"

I have MP3 Rocket and have not as yet been able to convert to Sansa Media.
Is there another process that I have not completed yet?

I imported pictures and it doesn't show on my sansa it says unsupported media format

The Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos and photos (pictures) to your Sansa player as well as the memory card in your Sansa player.

NOTE: Only the Sansa e200v2, Fuze, and View allow viewing of video files from the memory card.

STEP 1 - Download and install Sansa Media Converter
The Sansa Media Converter application is available via the Sansa Firmware Updater.

STEP 2 - Convert and transfer your video or image files
NOTE: To see a list of supported image/video file formats, see Sansa Media Converter does not convert a file
1. Run the Sansa Media Converter.
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.
3. If a Portable Device windows appears, select Sansa Media Converter using Sansa Media Converter.

4. The Sansa player should appear on the left pane of the Sansa Media Converter console.
5. Click Add Media to add video or photo files to be converted and transferred.
(In the sample below we imported an image and a video file)
6. The converted files are stored in My Album by default. To place them in a different folder, select My Album then type in a new name.

7. Depending on what Sansa player that's plugged in or if a microSD is present in the Sansa player, click on the Sansa player or the microSD card on the left pane to select where to transfer the converted files. (in the sample below, we selected the microSD card)
8. Click Convert to covert the files.
9. Once the files are converted it's automatically transferred to the device or microSD.
10. Click OK when finished.

How can I put music on Sansa MP3 player from Macbook Pro?

Not to sure about a mac but I think mac's use a mp4 format when it rips a cd, and the Sansa will use a mp3 file. You can download a free program to convert these files but again, I know where for a PC but not a mac. Look for free mp4 to mp3 converter program for Mac..

How do I download my Itunes onto the sansafuze?

First of all iTunes does not support any product that is not made by Apple, so you won't be able to sync your Sansa with iTunes. But there is another way, first you need to find out if the music in your iTunes library is the format, do this by right clicking several songs and clicking either "Properties" or "Get Info" or something like that. A window will pop up, look under "Kind," if it doesn't say MPEG audio file or MP3 then it needs to be converted to MP3 format. Now in iTunes(if your running windows) choose "File" and select "Preferences," now click "Import Settings" c64a1ba.png and under "Import to" select "MP3 Encoder." 41565a6.pngNow go to music and in the upper right corner of the iTunes window next to search, select the "List" view or click "View" and select "As List." 00e23ba.pngNow highlight all your songs by clicking the top song, holding shift down and hold down the page down arrow until all the songs are highlighted, now right click over the highlighted songs and click "Create MP3 Version" a59eab9.png

Now you just need to move all the songs to Windows Media Player or to any other Media Player that will work with your Player. Once this is done, plug your Sansa into your computer and open up your Media PLayer and sync it!I hope this helps!

Trying to import pictures from my library.When trying to open pix, get message-Unsupported Media Format- I have Sansa Fuze player.

I have the same player. I usually go to my computer, find the drive with the sansa, double-click to open the files.
Leave this window open,
Now go to your pictures, and open that file. Go to first top picture, right-click, this picture, then scroll to bottom of picture list, on last picture, press and hold shift key then left-click on the picture. Now all pictures should be high-lighted.
Now just drag the pictures over to the sansa pic file and drop them in there. THey should automatically add themselves to your sansa.
It should be JIF,BMP, and the other most common pic files.

Drag and drop any song or picture from your pc directly into sansa folder under my computer.

Downloading videos

if your mp3 player is not plugged in to the proper usb port, then it stays gray. you can try plugging in ur mp3 player, or instead of dragging and dropping, try importing files by clicking the import media button. it might just not have recognized the file.

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.

Cant load songs

the best way for that is to read your manual.

Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel Pentium class PC or higher
CD-ROM drive
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.

To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.

Can't load songs

ive had this same problemo. you cant use the media converter to drag and drop songs. you have to download your songs or rip them onto windows media player. you plug in the sansa and then when its recognized there will be an area on the right hand side where you drag the songs and they appear on sansa.

Try downloading the Rhapsody Real player app, and import your Itunes file to the Rhapsody library. The files will be converted and will be able to be transferred to your mp3.
