The database is corrupt or the licenses on the songs expired - Sansa had a fix on their website, but they took the software down in the last 3 weeks - I would go ahead and give them a call

But, first, make sure you tried everything:
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Don't play downloaded music, it appearrs the must be supported by mp3


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

I keep putting music onto my mp3 player and when i go to play it, the mp3 player says no data. it is recognising it on the laptop and will play the music from the mp3 player on the laptop but keeps saying...


the problem with this is normally the format. Sony Don.t normally play .WMA files they have to be converted to .Mp3 files. if that doesn't work then some media players need set storage locations to work, look in the instruction Manuel or try sending the info to your device using windows media player

How do you load music on it and where do you get the music?


to load music you need to have Windows Media capabilities, I use my CD's and transfer them to my MP3, u can also use the Ipod card and down load music that way.
open the Windows Media and make a play list of what you want on your MP3 in the order you want cause that is how it will play
Plug in the MP3 click the play list and click Sync tab (the down arrow ) there will be an option to sync " the name you give the playlist" to "HS UB Flashdrive" click this and it should start to down load music to mp3.
another option if you don't have the windows media once you have music(cd's) saved to your computer is to plug in MP3 and open the USB file that is your MP3 there should be a folder called music if not make one then just copy and paste the music into this folder.

Mp3 player won't play


That is the problem with services that give you DRM-protected WMA's - as soon as the subscription lapses, the song cannot be played on your mp3 player anymore. The only way around the problem is to either: a) renew your subscription, or b) get a music service that gives you DRM-free songs, preferably a service that gives you the songs in mp3 format.

Trying to synch my SanDisk MP3 player to Rhapsody


This player is a little goofy. The normal method to synchronize is through Windows Media Player. But if you go for the Rhapsody subscription, you have to also sync the device through Rhapsody.

File system error


File system error is almost impossible fix - you can try updating the firmware (if you actually have an iLo, it will be impossible to update the firmware - manufacturer no longer supports)

I cant have my own mp3 songs for my ringtone on my LG Chocolate. it keeps playing the Ring 1 ringtone.


You can: MP3 Player * Download and listen to music with the built-in MP3 player.
* Don’t settle for boring polyphonic ringtones, select an MP3 as your ringtone. (Also supports AAC, AAC+, AAC++ and WMA formats)
* External MP3 button for easy access to your music.
* Graphic equalizer with 6 sound effects to choose from (General, Classic, Jazz, Pop, Rock and Bass).
You should try to find a music or download some mp3 music and when playing click on set as ringtone.
Good luck!
