Make sure the songs you are trying to sync do not have DRM-encryption on them. Converting to mp3 format is the best way to make them sync-able. Otherwise, you can find DRM removal software.

Also, reformat the player in Windows Media Player 11 - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything. Your player should be sync-able in WMP-11 now.

It wont read in windows media player but i unplug it does but every time i plug it in it just makes it slow


If you recently updated the software online it may have changed the USB setting on your sansa. Go into settings - USB mode and select MPT. Windows media player should then recognise your sansa. Hope this helps.

Won't load audiobook because clock is not set


Had the same problem - used this solution from ehow.com at this web address: http://www.ehow.com/how_5180421_troubleshoot-sansa-clip-mp.html Worked and now I'm transferring my book from overdrive - hope it helps. Reset the Clip by holding the On/Off switch in the On position for approximately 20 seconds. Release the switch, then attach it to the USB adapter to charge it. This process can help when the Clip does not appear to be working at all.

Mp3 player malfunction


1. Try updating the drivers-
- Right click "My Computer", choose properties
- Click the hardware tab and choose Device Manager
- See if you find the name of the device there - if yes, Right click on it and choose "Update Driver"

2. Try changing the mode to MTP

3. If nothing works, unplug the USB cable, Lock the device, Push the round button in the middile of the Sansa player, continue holding it and plug in the USB cable.
4. One more option you could try -
  • turn off your mp3
  • press the hold(lock)button down to activate it.
  • press the center button and keep it pressed ..
  • connect the USB cable supplied with the device always pressing the center button,
  • connect the other end of the cable to a USB jack on your PC.
  • From there it should work properly.

My sansa clip ipod is not recognised by any computer


On your sansa, go to "Settings" then System Settings" then "USB Mode," then change it to MSC, if that does not work, try the other modes, just n case.
Hope this helps!

Connecting Problem


Unplug your Sansa. Uninstall all the Sansa software from your computer, and reinstall the clean version from the Sandisk website. Then, replug the Sansa.

Sansa synch problem


Change the Rip settings in Windows Media Player to convert the CD to mp3 format and then re-synch it - it will work. WMP probably synched it as a raw CDA, which the Sansa cannot recognize.

To help you with that, I need to know what operating system your using (XP, Vista, ect...) and what other devices you have plugged into the computer. There are a few things you can try. When you plug it in, does it say it's connected? Does the "Found new hardware" wizard come up? Let me know, I'll see what I can do to help

PC won't detect sansa e280 please help me


I had the same prob with my e280 yesterday and i bought it 4 days ago. I'm using a vista o.s. and i found a way to transfer files this morning. if you are using a vista os you should first set your sansa to MTP mode so that your windows media player can detect your e280 then you can start synching. If you are using XP o.s. there shouldn't be any prob with that but you have to switch to MSC mode. you can find these settings on the setting menu of your e280 then USB mode.you can also open the E280 player if you see it on "my computer" there you can transfer the files.don't use your wmp player when you are doing this on vista cuz the wmp player will also synch at the same time and it will synch the same file.
