Disconnects and reboots right at the end of copying new files
I've never had this problem before, but today when I went to upload a few new songs to my Sansa, right when it finished copying the last song from Media Player, my mp3 player rebooted and a window popped up on Media player that either said that the device is not functioning properly or that is not connected. Even though it looks like it finished copying the files, they don't show up on my MP3 player.. thanks for any help!

Re: Disconnects and reboots right at the end of copying...
What i would recommend you to do is to uninstall the device and reinstall it back...tou uninstall it...assuming that you are running windows xp...click on start, right click on my computer and go to properties..you should have your system properties open then click under hardware then device manager...look for the sansa device..it usually located under portable device..if its not showing there i would recommend you to look for under disk drivesand see if its there..right click on the device and click on uninstall...after you unintall it unplug your device from the computer and check to usb mode..it has to be under MTP mode or auto detect...after you check the mode open up your windows media player click on tools, options and click under privacy...clear the history and caches...after you finish you can plug the device on the back of the computer not the front then windows should recongnize it and it should work properly..if that doesnt solve the issue reinstall Windows media player again..If you still having problems..you can contact me again or you can call sandisk at 1-866-726-3475...

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files
The Sharper image 2gb player will only allow 131 entries in the root directory. Create a new folder, just like on your computer, and then add music files to that folder. I have not tested if there is a file limit in a new folder.

This problem may occur if a file that the Windows Product Activation (WPA) requires is damaged or missing. This behavior occurs if one or both of the following conditions are true:
A third-party backup utility or an antivirus program interferes with the installation of Windows XP.
A file that WPA requires is manually modified.
First, disable your Windows firewall just to be sure (make sure you have another firewall or antivirus program before doing this. Delete all songs and start over. Frostwire has two big problems - it is virus-prone, and
embedded text leads to the corruption of many mp3 players. Make sure you delete all text from the Comments section of the ID3 tag of any Frostwire song before loading it onto your mp3 player. To do this:
1. Open Windows Media Player
2. Click Library – make sure the songs that you have just added are visible. If they are not visible, give Windows Media Player two minutes to update the library. If they still don’t appear, move the mouse cursor over to the Library tab, and click the little white arrow that appears under the word "Library" – this will being down a drop-down menu; select "Add to Library"; click the "Add" button and add the Frostwirewire Downloads folder; click OK; click OK again – Windows Media Player will now attempt to add your Frostwire downloads to the Windows Media Player library
3. Find the song that you want to edit
4. Right-click the song, and select "Advanced Tag Editor"
5. click on the Comments tab – make sure it is blank
Now you can safely load the song from Frostwire into your device (mp3 player).

If that fails, there are a few different possibilities. 0.5) make sure the songs are in mp3 or WMA format 1)Your subscription to your digital music service such as Napster, etc has expired. Sorry - unless you renew your subscription, you will not be able to play these songs again. 2) Your songs have DRM-encryption on them. To check and see, right click on an individual song name in Windows Media Player, and click on "License" or "Digital Rights"; if the affected songs have DRM encryption, then get DRM-removal software. 3) Your songs do NOT have DRM-encryption on them. In this instance, follow the procedure for item#2, except click on the link in the License or digital Rights tab that says "acquire license" (make sure you are connected to the internet first).
