8th graders have decided advantages over adults in this arena

Plug the Mp3 Player into the computer

On your computer desktop:
Go to Start --> All Programs --> Windows Media Player - this will open windows media player

Click on the "Sync button" - if there is no Sync button, then you need a newer verison of Windows Media Player than the one you have (and I'm not willing to explain all that - sorry)

Find a song that you like, left-click it with your mouse and drag it over into the right-hand of the window where it says "Drag files here to synchronize to your device"

Once you have dragged a song or 50, click on the "Start Sync" button - for your continued sanity, don't sync more than 10 songs at a time

Do not disconnect the Mp3 player at all during this process, or you will kill it

After it appears that all the songs have been synced - wait 2 extra minutes to be on the safe side

Safely remove the Mp3 player from the computer; the mp3 player will say refreshing database or updating for a few minutes

Now you can listen to your songs

My Sandisk Clip 4gb player kee[s showing me the not enough space messgae. Can i reset it without deleting my music?


For this issue, the reason why you're receiving this message is that some of the songs that are loaded on your Sansa is already corrupted and the only way you can resolve this is to format the MP3 player. This is a known issue with this particular player, specially if your combining the MTP mode and the MSC mode. MTP mode is your device will show as a Multimedia device under your computer and allows you syncronize your songs using Windows Media player . MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode lets you drag and drop songs directly to the player under windows explorer just like a flash drive.

How to delete songs that are not showing


Hello,

Try switching USB mode of the player, to see the hidden files.
See next help link:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/447

Look in the manual for the m200 series players on page 31 under USB, how to select Auto Dectect (MTP or MSC) or only MSC :
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/downloads/um/sansa-m200-um.pdf
MTP is Media Transfer Protocol, seeing the player as a media device.
MSC is Mass Storage Class, seeing the player as a removable disk.

All support for the m200 series players, on next page:

After changing out the battery, i turned it on and


The database seems to be overloaded while rebuilding the files info and playlists.
See the answer for "Not enough space for MusicDB" :
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/848

For the c100 series connect the player to the computer how to delete files see:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/41

When linked to the computer there are 2 different connection modes possible:
  • MSC mode seeing the player as a removable disk using Windows Explorer.
  • MTP mode seeing the Sansa player as a Media device using software like Windows Media Player.
For "cleaning up" your database check both lists. How to switch to MSC / MTP mode:

You are in Mass Storage Class (MSC) USB Mode. Change to Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) USB Mode. In the Settings menu, go to USB Mode and select MTP.

NoSpaceForDB Please Delete MoreThan4.0MB


hmmm i'm not familiar with the problem but try this.

First open your mp3 player and go to settings. Under the USB menu change it to MSC. Then plug in the mp3 player to the computer. Open the My Computer on your desktop, right click on the Sansa mp3 player and click Format. Make sure Fat32 is checked and Quick format is UNchecked. Then format the mp3 player. After that it should be clean and work just like a USB drive.

Let me know if this helps!
