Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

1 Answer

Downloading music and storing as individual folders, albums etc

Whenever I transfer music to my player it just lumps all the music together i.e. anything i add goes on top of what's already there. when i drag and drop an album folder into the playlist section I get the message that the playlist folder is empty? Quite simply I wish to add music by genre or by artist but I can't seem to achieve this. Oddly enough I can do this quite easily in my old cheapie player!

How can I upload album art onto a philips gogear vibe for all my artists? I have album art inside my folders and i had itunes embed the art into the files when i uploaded them; however the art only shows...


There are 3 possible ways in getting the album art for your music album.
  1. Album art may be obtained from the online Music CD database that Windows Media Player uses.
    Note: Not all music albums have album art available in the online CD database.
  2. From the online music store where you purchased your songs or albums, the album art may be downloaded along with your purchase.
  3. You may also create your own album art by transferring your favorite jpg photo into the selected album folder and rename it to Album Art.jpg.
To download album art from the online database and transfer to the player.
  1. Make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Launch Windows Media Player.
  3. Go to Tools> Options> Player.
  4. Make sure the "Enable picture support for devices" check box is selected.
  5. Click the Apply, then the OK buttons.
  6. Select the "RIP" tab on the task menu bar.
  7. Insert your music CD into the CD drive of your computer. The Windows Media Player will take a few seconds to show the content of the CD on the display.
  8. Click "Find Album Info". The Player accesses the database hosted by WindowsMedia.com and displays information about the album in the Album Information pane. The album art will be shown if available.(Note: For some music CD, album art may not be found in any of the online database.)
  9. Click Finish to update all the information about your album and show it in the Rip pane.
  10. Connect your Device to the computer.
  11. Select the tracks that you would like to rip by clicking in the check b ox next to the track.
  12. Click the Rip music button to start ripping the music CD.
  13. Once the tracks are finished being ripped to the library, go to the Media library and select the songs that you have just ripped.
  14. Add them to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  15. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  16. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.

To create your own album art and transfer it to the Device
  1. In Windows Media Player , right click on the song you want to update the album art of.
  2. Select "Advanced Tag Editor" option.
  3. In the screen that pops up , select the "Pictures" tab.
  4. Use the drop down list to make sure that the type of picture you add is the Cover (front).
  5. Click on "Add" to associate a picture as the Album art for the song and all the songs in that album.
  6. Add this (and other songs from the same album) to the sync list and transfer them into your Device. The album art will be transferred along with those selected songs.
  7. Disconnect the Device from your computer.
  8. Make sure that the option in your Device has been selected to display the album art on the device, at Settings-> Album art.
You can also click on this link to show the graphical steps on how to upload/add album art on your songs.

When i connect my m-cody M30 mp3 player to my PC by USB, to which folder should i put my mp3 files to make it work? can it be in folders?


Yes it can be in folders. It may have a video, picture, music folders etc. if so for your music, create sub folders in the music folder for each album or artist/band and place the music files in these folders so you can easily select and play the music by artist/band/album etc.

All the music shows as unknown


Hi transfer them back to your pc, use the software that you used originally to transfer the music, and you need to select in the settings and there will be somewhere that you click to Find all info or update info, It might get very long winded. without knowing which software you are using i can't help further.

Uknown artist and title


For those of you that are taking music from old cd's youtube etc., this is how you can get around it. I learned how to make what you'd call pseudo-albums when I first got mine. Ok so if you're like me and don't have the money for rhapsody and you're taking old cd songs or getting them off youtube, then here's what you do. When you're connected, go to the WALKMAN symbol. When in there go to the MUSIC folder. Make sure that you don't have anything highlighted. Inside the MUSIC folder go to FILE. And in FILE go to NEW. Click on FOLDER. You shold have a new folder with New Folder highlighted in the name area.

Now, for instance you want the album "Herzeleid" from the group Rammstein just name the new folder that. Then put in all the songs from that album. My next recommendation is to put something like Rammstein-Herzelied-01-Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen? for the first song. So that when you go to you album-folder your songs will be in the order they are on the actual album.

This is the easy way.

The hard way is to go into the properties of each song you put on your Mp3.

When there go into summary. When in summary if it says Advanced>> on the big button click on it.

On this page you should see:
Music with
Artist
Album Title
Year, etc.

go in and click on the far right to see a text box. There you wanna type in the name of the artist etc. And if you want an album this way then go ahead and type in the albums name on the next one down and the track number and make sure that the Apply button is "popping out" You can make sure by clicking on another box and click the apply button and viola! New album. The only thing is I don't know how to get cover art on their it might be in the file transfer disk which i don't have with me but if you need more information go to my file.

Make sure your device is under MTP mode...to do that go under the menu settings, usb and device mode and change it to MTP

Assuming that you have windows media player 10.
1. Creating a selection in Windows Media Player
Launch Windows Media Player 10. Click on the Library tab then Add to Library > Add folder and select a folder (e.g. compilation of favourite songs, converted CD, folder of downloaded songs, etc.) from your hard drive (See Image 1). Click OK to confirm your selection. Your folder data will appear in the main window. Repeat the procedure for your other albums.

You can also do this by clicking File > Add to library > Add folder.

When your folders are ready, click-hold to select all your songs and then drag them to the window on the left, as indicated. Select the entire list again and click Now Playing List and select Synch List (See Image 2).

2. Transferring your selection to your MP3 player
Click on the Synchronize tab. Connect your MP3 player to your computer, your player will be automatically recognized by the computer and synchronization (that is file transfer) will begin immediately.

3. Transferring your MP3s to flash memory
Insert the memory card from your MP3 player or MP3 phone into your computer's card reader and open My Computer. Windows XP will automatically recognize your memory card and its icon should appear next to the other icons.

Click on its icon to open your memory card.

Select the MP3 file to transfer. If you want to transfer several files at once, control-click each individual file. In the File Manager window, click Copy File and select the destination folder.

I purchased an MP3 player for my little girl for Christmas and I'm not real technology savy!!! Having problems downloading music to the mp3 player. Can't find the user manual.


To be totally accurate, I would need the brand name and model, but.........

In general, you can connect the player to the computer with the USB cable. At that point, the player "should" show something on the screen indicating it is connected. then you most likely have 2 options.
1. Open Windows Media Player, click on the "Sync" button at the top of the WMP window, and select everything you want transferred to the player by dragging songs, albums, etc. over to the "Sync List" section at the right side of the window. Click the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the sync List section ans sit back and watch it copy everything over. One very nice thing about this option is that WMP will show you how much of the Player drive space will be used before you ever start the copy process. You never have to worry about a "Drive Full" error.

2. Open the "My Computer" window, then double click on the player which should be listed as a removable drive. Open the "Music" folder on the player. Now open your "My Music" folder (inside the My Documents folder), and just drag all the albums, songs, etc. over to the Music folder on the player. That will copy everything you drag to the player.
