Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

1 Answer

I recently bought a Clip. I downloaded several files from old CDs to the Sansa via i tunes (I have a mac g4 laptop). They showed up in the Sansa as files and I dragged them to the music folder. I ejected the Sansa but when I looked for the new downloads, they did not show up. I also have a recurring problem. When I try to play my music, the Sansa will cycle through nearly 30 or more songs but will not play any of them. It will some times shut down or eventually play a song way down the playlist. I am not using shuffle. I notice that the songs all start with a dot before the name (eg. .led zep) while the songs that do play don't have the dot. What is going on here and is there a way to fix it. (I should add that I have memory left on the Sansa- there are only 174 songs on it).

You need update a new firmware. If your device is Sansa Clip+, newest firmware is 01.02.13. Sansa Clip is 01.01.35 or 02.01.35.
Good luck

I have a sansa clip; could not find Rhapsody cards; got an iTunes card for my Mac; apparently transferred tunes from Mac to clip, see them on the clip directory from my Mac but can't see them or play them...


Your Sansa will not be compatible with the DRM used in iTunes. You can download iTunes+ tracks, which are DRM free (there are a lot of them now) or you can 'burn' the m4a files to mp3 files with a program like NoteBurner (www.noteburner.com) :: Disclaimer :: This method is technically illegal, except in jurisdictions that allow backup copies.

Sansa clip mp3 when switching on show the following message "not enough space for music DB please free 30Mb"


You don't mention what type of PC you manage your clip on .. but if it is a MAC

Plug the Clip in via USB

Click on the Sansa Clip listing on the left
- Not the disk itself, the DEVICE.
Click the 'Partition' tab
Under Volume Scheme, choose '1 Partition'
Click the 'Options...' button
Choose 'Master Boot Record', then click ok
Click the drop down next to 'Format:' and choose "MS-DOS (FAT)"
Click Apply
(Thanks to Pardsbane over at the anythingbutipod forum)

When this is complete, you can eject the disk if needed, and your clip should be back to normal.
You will probaly lose all music files when you do this.. but at least you will have your Clip back to a functioning device

If you have a Windows based PC
I suggest you first have the Sansa Updater installed or become familiar with how to manually update
Plug in the Clip via USB
Go to My computer
Delete one of the music files within the Music Folder
Close all
Test the clip
If this doesn't fix it..

You should reformat the drive
You will lose ALL music audio books stored on the drive
In My Computer Right Clik on the Sansa
Clik Format
Clik OK
When Complete run the Updater
Now try to place a album or song via WMP on the Clip
Test the clip before putting more music on it

Hope this helps

Yes i have a ibook g4 40 gb ..... anyway i recently bought a JVC HD camcorder and the files are in .mts.... my mac wont read these... how do i view and edit them on my mac? thanks...


You could use the trial version of imedia converter which can convert .mts files to various media formats which should be able to be imported into imovie or the like. You can find the converter at this link http://www.iskysoft.com/user-guide/imedia-converter-mac.html
Hope this helps.

My computer does not recognize my sansa clip


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Times} Hello and thanks for contacting FixYa Technical Support.

Anytime there is an issue where your Sansa clip is not recognized by your computer, run the firmware update for your version of Operating system (Windows, Mac or Linux)

Firmware is software for the hardware itself, so if there is a case, where the hardware connecting via a USB port like your Sansa clip is not recognizing, going to the manufacturer's website and updating the firmware for their specific product you purchased, is a step in the right direction.

For your benefit, I have provided the link to the Sansa Support page, where you can download and install the most current firmware update for your Sansa Clip.
Download Sansa Firmware Updater

Also, for regular operation of your Sansa clip, make sure you are following these steps for use of this device:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  1. Turn on the Clip
  2. Put the device in Hold (move Hold button until orange is showing)
  3. Press and hold the Center Button
  4. Plug the mini-USB connector into the device (be sure the USB is plugged into the computer)
  5. Wait for the Clip drive to mount
  6. Follow instructions below and drag files to the Clip drive
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let me know if this helps.

Regards,

You don't need a "restore" cd.

You can just use any copy of Tiger.

Sansa Clip with invisible podcast files


The podcats that aren't recognized may be in AAC instead of Mp3 format. Use Media Monkey or some other free software to convert them to mp3 format.
