Hey guyi,

According to information provided by the manufacturer (Sandisk), the Sansa Clip MP3 player can use two different methods to upload songs: a simple drag-and-drop interface, or syncronizing the player with Windows Media Player.

With the traditional drag-and-drop interface, you would need to connect the player to your computer and select the "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer" option when it is presented. Once you have done this, you should be able to double-click on the "Sansa" player and then the "Music" folder. After this folder has been opened, you should be able to drag and drop (or copy/paste) the files into this folder to upload them to the player.

For more information or instructions on how to add files to your Sansa music library using Windows Media Player however, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or the following link on the manufacturer's website:

http://www.sandisk.com/assets/File/Downloads/user-guides/clip-usermanual.pdf

Unfortunately Windows Media Player does not currently appear to support the ability to directly import iPod playlists, but if you keep most of your music files in the same folder/directory on your computer, both programs should be able to share the same music library. Please keep in mind that this may only apply to music that you loaded onto the computer yourself and other unprotected file formats that both programs recongize (like .MP3 files), and may not necessarily apply to copy-protected songs downloaded from iTunes or other online music services.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

As I know, iTunes music video files has apple drm license protection that prevent users playing itunes content on other non-ipod portable players, so if you want to load the tracks on itunes to play on sansa player you may need to convert itunes music files to mp3 first:)

Sansa clip+ ......dropped about 400 songs.....tried to download after cleaning out old songs, but to no avail....tried drag/drop from playlists AND library......the few songs that are left, when on skips...


Only thing I can think of is to start over, and hope there is no problem.
Then you will know if you screwed up, and don't know how, or if the thing is messed up.

Try a different method of loading tunes onto it.

try everything

How do I get my itunes library to play on my sansaclipplus?


If you've purchased your music from the iTunes Store, it is in a format that is incompatible with your Clip. BUT, iTunes has the ability to convert songs to MP3 format, which your Clip can play. In iTunes, select a song(s), then under the "Advanced" pulldown menu, select "Create MP3 Version". Wait for it to finish, depending on how many songs you've selected, it could take some time.

Once you've created the MP3s, find them on disk and copy them to your Sansa Clip's "Music" folder. Or, use a program like iTunes Agent to sync an iTunes playlist directly to your Clip. Note, iTunes Agent requires a little bit of computer knowledge, it's not for pure novices.

Loading music from sansa


iTunes uses AAC copies of music files. The Sansa Clip needs the files in WMA or MP3 format. You need to find a free audio converter online and convert the songs you want to MP3 or WMA format. Many programs will create a converted copy while still retaining the original AAC copy.

Loading itunes library into my sansa view ... how?


You will have to use windows media player to load your songs onto your mp3 player. Open windows media player and see if the songs you want are there (they should be). If not, go to itunes and right click on a song and click on a option that should say open file location and go there. Then transfer all of your songs to your windows media player and transfer them to your mp3 player. Then it should work. If you need any more help, ask.

You need to tag the .mp3 so it has a genre of "Audiobook". Google "mp3 tagger" and you'll find utils to do this for you.

Using iTune cards for Sansa Clip MP3 Player


Sansa MP3 players will not play iTunes songs. Only iPods play iTune songs. Visit Limewire to download songs that you can play on your MP3 player.

Unable to download itunes from itunes library to sandisk clip mp3


Make sure the files are in MP3 or WMA file format. If they are in a different file format other than the ones above convert them because for audio those two are the file format that the sansa clip supports. Im not sure but iTunes convert songs to AAC or MP4 depending on the settings of it.

The best way to transfer songs tot he sansa clip is to change the mode of the player to MSC by going to Settings and then USB Mode. This would help detect the drive as a flash drive so you could copy and paste songs to it.
