Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

1 Answer

Downloaded music and when i disconnect from computer it's not on the Sansa

I spent 2 hours downloading 100+ songs from Windows Media Player to the Sansa. The Sansa was receptive when plugged in and even said writting when I was copying over. The problem-- When I unplugged the device and went to play my downloads it says there is no songs, nothing in playlist or artists???? I went back to Windows Media player plugged it back in and it shows all the music I downloaded. It is very frustrating. The lady at Best Buy said that this device was very user friendly--last time I trust anyone from there. Please help me if you can. Getting ready to return it.

You have 2 ways to transfer your songs from your computer to your sansa clip:
1. Plug sansa clip to computer, double click on "Sansa Clip ...GB", double click on "Internal Memory", you will see the file "Music", copy your songs and paste them into Music file of the device.
2. Using Windows Media Player: open windows media player, plug sansa clip into computer, click on Sync tab, select songs that you want to sync, drag and drop song selected into "Sync list" on the right side of the windows media player (you should update wmp11), then click on button Start Sync.

I can't get the songs downloaded from my Windows Media Center to the sansa m240 MP3


Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

Use Windows Media Player 11 to delete those songs off of there - the Rhapsody downloads won't work after the 30-day trial has expired anyways:

Use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs downloaded from Limewire to your Sansa. The first time you open Windows Media Player, it will search the "My Music" folder for songs - this may take a few minutes. Mkae sure you have Windows Media Player 10 or 11. You can either move or copy the Limewire songs to the folder called "My Music," or go into Windows Media Player and change Windows Media Player's configuration so that it can read the Limewire downloads folder.

Will eventually lose songs downloaded?


Okay, here's what i've encountered:  songs that I downloaded on rhapsody, without purchasing, only lasted about 7-10 days unless i reconnected.  once my trial period ended, i lost all the songs.  songs that i've purchased i've had no trouble (although if you load them to the sansa immediately after download, you may get the same message.  its best to wait at least 24 hours).  good luck

Synchronize to continue your music subscription


This is what I recieved when I asked a third party for help with this same problem. I worked. Good luck:

The error you are receiving may be
resolved by changing the USB settings within your device. Your device
uses two different transfer modes that are automatically selected by the
device; the primary mode is MTP. MTP mode is what allows the transfer of
the license along with the WMA (Windows Media Audio) title. Can you
please complete the following steps to change the USB setting?

(Please note: Do not connect the device to the computer until step 4.)

1. Power on the device and select 'Settings'.
2. Scroll to and select 'USB Mode' (or 'Mode').
3. Scroll to and select 'MTP' (or 'PlaysForSure Mode').
4. Connect the device to your computer.
5. Open 'My Computer’ > Sansa e280.
6. Delete any WMA (Windows Media Audio) files you see that are of books
you cannot play.
7. Open the OverDrive Media Console and attempt to transfer the audio
book again.
