Can't see files I have downloaded onto my clip

I have had my clip for about a year, and have not had any problems, but just recently I downloaded several files onto my clip, and I see them when it is hooked to the computer, but I can't find them on the clip to play them when unhooked.
Please help asap!!!

    I am having the same problem. I have tried even syncing my MP3. Nothing works. The flies are there when hooked to the computer. The minute I unplug the clip the flies are no longer there.

Actually, I did some digging around myself - the files that I can see when hooked to the computer are all .cda files - after some research I found out that this type of file carries information only - not the actual audio (maybe it was some sort of protection attached to the cd??) It makes sense - I can listen to the cda files if the disk is in the computer, but when the disk is out, I can't even listen to the files that have been downloaded to windows media (not even taking the mp3 into account).
Could this be your problem also Domiaty2>

I have a new Macbook Pro. How do I download Mp3 files to my Sansa clip Mp3 Player?


  1. The Sansa Clip will only play digital files that are in the MP3 format.
  2. Anything you "drag" to the Clip must be dragged to the MUSIC folder of the Clip drive represented on your desktop.
So, first make sure your CD "audio files" are in the MP3 format (iTunes can convert them, if not). And second, make sure you locate the MUSIC folder on the Clip drive as your destination.
Getting Songs onto the Clip
This is just a matter of copying files.

1) Plug the Clip into your USB
2) Copy song files (in the format the Clip accepts, see Clip manual) from your source to the MUSIC folder of the Clip drive.

NOTE (applies only to older versions of firmware): Copying files to the Clip on a Mac created extra files on the Clip and you would see them on the Clip display. If you are using an earlier firmware, you need something like the application, KopyMac to prevent this during copying. With the latest version of the firmware, this problem is eliminated.

FYI, if you keep your song files in the Artist:Album:song folder hierarchy on your source drive, you can copy the Artist folder to the Clip MUSIC folder and the hierarchy will be available through the Clip Music menu.

How do i download video clip onto vlc


Hi there,

It depends what you are attempting to download. If you're trying to download streaming video, you would need some pretty advanced software like Camtasia's Screen Recorder.

However, if it's an actual video clip available for Download, you can do this.

Save the video clip to your Desktop or to a location you recognize. Once it's downloaded, open the File Location and right-click on the Video. Select Open With, then select Choose Default Program. From here, select "Browse", then search for VideoLAN VLC Player. Once you select the video file, make sure that the check box below is set to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file."

Once you do this, every time you open an AVI File it will open it VLC Media Player. If you don't want this, just make sure "Always use the selected program..." is unchecked.
If this solution doesn't resolve your problem, please return to this page and submit a response. I will be happy to assist you further. :)

Locked out, boot password


I recently had a similar problem. I could no longer access my external hard drive and was unable to take admin permission of the drive. I wanted to get my files off the drive before I formatted it, especially five years worth of photographs. The solution was simple. I downloaded and burned Ubuntu (Linux) onto a bootable cd and ran Linux on my computer. Linux doesnt recognize Windows Admin privalges. I was easily able to access my external harddrive and copy my files onto my desktop. I restarted my computer with Windows and re-formatted my hardrive. The last step was simply to cut and paste my files back into my external drive. Everything works perfectly after I formatted the drive and I was able to keep my files.

Dowloading audio files onto my computer..


I have an Olympus recorder. I don't know if the software is similar but their software has a way of copying the files to folders in the software. These files can then be used in other audio programs such as ITunes if you want to transfer it to your Ipod or audio recording software so that you can drag and drop them into one file.

If you look in the folder where your voice manage software is, is there a folder where the audio files are being stored within the program?
