    I only have about 26 tracks on here and you think that is too many?

  • lmw41652 May 02, 2010

    I deleted some tracks. I am not sure anything every went from my IMac to the MP3

  • lmw41652 May 02, 2010

    It says 0 files

  • lmw41652 May 02, 2010

    I know I sound like an idiot but how do I format my device? lol

  • lmw41652 May 02, 2010

    Do you also use it as a file storage device?


    Are you sure those tracks are MP3 files? If yes, what is the the size of a file?

  • Tudor Valean

    Use the file browser on the MP3 player to check the existance of the files.

    OK, then format your device (Sansa) and then send your files again to the MP3 player. This way any glitches generating file errors will be removed and the device should be working again properly.

    This is a bit tricky ... Sandisk MP3 players have known issues when formatted within Mac OS (Mac OS has its own file system and is different from Windows'). That's why you need to plug it in a Windows-running computer, then go to My Computer, right click the MP3 player's icon and then click on Format ... and, on the next screen, just click on "Start". That's it.

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..

Sansa m230 not syncing music files or downloading them. Process leaves the Sansa m230 with 0 files and i am finding it impossible to load new file(s) ?


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. Then add music this way and see if it is works: 1. Free a USB port on your desktop computer. Now, grab the USB cable for your SanDisk Sansa MP3 player and connect the player to your computer. 2. Wait for your computer to find and recognize the player. This may take a few moments. Once you receive a confirmation message, open your computer and scan the icons for the SanDisk MP3 player. 3. Open the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player on your computer. The music files that you currently have saved to the player?s memory are displayed. 4. Open a folder containing music files that is stored in your desktop computer?s memory. Scan the files for songs that you want to transfer to the SanDisk Sansa MP3 player. 5. Left-click on a song file and drag to the SanDisk Sansa window. Drop the file and let your computer complete the transfer. The transferred file appears at the bottom of your music list. 6. Unplug your SanDisk Sansa player from your computer. Turn the player on and allow the file transfer to update to the internal memory of the MP3 player.

Down load music


Use your computer to download and copy the files to the player.. Ya should have software that came with the player install that on the PC, and it should have a utility to put the files on ya player once they have been either "Ripped" from a CD/DVD or DLed from 'net then ya put 'em on ya player..

My sansa 250 mp3 player


the only thing that you have to do is that when they send you that message don't click yes. But you also have to go to www.sandisk.com so you can download the software for your sansa. Hope this helped find the solution for your issue!!

Mp3


connect it to the computer first.
some MP3 players are very simple,just copy/paste the music from your computer.
but some,provided with a driver/software cd must habe this own programs instaled to permit the music transfer.
so,if you have this cd,install it and use the own SanDisk programe to transfer the music
good luck:)and dont forget to rate my answer.thank you.

Sync notice...?


If your using XP, go to the Windows Media Player and load the CD. You will see a Sync Icon. When you click on it will run and then give you a sync complete. Plug in your Sansa to the usb port and load from the Windows Media Player. Myles5@optonline.net
