Question about SanDisk Sansa Shaker SDMX9N-512 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Sansa Shaker I bought a shaker for my child at christmas and she and I have been trying to get it to download and then play the music back and the computer says is has been downloaded but the player only plays about 5 songs over and over again and will not play anything else. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong and if I am not doing nothing wrong can I still take it back to bestbuy and exchange it for something else? Cindy

It depends on what kind of computer your using. Im 11 and i got the shaker for chrisstmas and i didnt know how to work it but when i downloaded realplayer i selected the option that if im listneing to something on youtube......long story shot. 1.download realplayer 2. hook up shaker to computer 3. go to www.playlist.com l4.look for whatever songs u want where it says start playlist(u dont have to make one). 5. When u search for a song over the add button ( its the plus sign) dont click it wait for a few seconds then it would say do you want to upload to real player( or something like that) 6. click it then it will show you thats its uploading. 7. go to your real player library the click thr burn/tranfer button select your device then add your songs. I hope this helped u!!!

Hi my sansa shaker wont play music


The Sansa Shaker ONLY plays MP3's, I downloaded a bunch of .wma files and kept getting the uh-oh so I put on an mp3 I had a voila! it played. Bummer though. Guess I gotta figure out how to convert my music files for my daughter, or pitch this thing and buy one that will play any media file.

Sansa Shaker stopped working


Hello there. i hope i am not too late with my solution. The sansa shaker has acted like yours is some numerous times but the solution can be as simple as ever. Try replacing the battery with a brand new one. However if this solution does not work simply take it back to the place you bought it with the slip and tell them your problem... they will probably give you a new one.

Shaker wont play songs


The songs that you are trying to download may not have the right DRM license - get the premium version of your music service subscription to get the correct license (or go to the license tab under the song properties, and click acquire license).

Sansa shaker not playing


Funny I found this forum because I've been having the same problem. My understanding is that subscription services (yahoo music, iTunes, etc.) don't come in an mp3 file format. You can, however, add songs from cd's you own.

Here's a link you might find helpful. It's from the Sansa Forums. One of the posters describes how you can convert files. I don't know how complicated it is. Good luck! :)

I understand your frustration! I've been having the same problem. I just wasted TWO HOURS trying to get music to download onto this Shaker. The extra $40 for a better device would have been worth it! I can't afford to buy all the cd's that I'd need to fill this player with the songs my son likes. I'm thinking of bringing it back!
