Make sure the songs are in the right file format first. I would only download songs that are in mp3 format for starters. If it is still not playing, follow the reset method that the manual suggests. If it is still not working, it may be defective. These "windowless" players are the most difficult to use, because there is no on-screen display to let you know what's going on.

No sound when playing back songs i have downloaded just amessage


The songs that you got are probably from the Rhapsody trial. Once the subscriptino expires, you will on longer be able to play those songs on your mp3 player.

To avoid this problem, only purchase songs that are in mp3 format from Rhapsody's Mp3 Store. You will find that mp3 players are expensive propositions in 2009 - it used to be much easier/cheaper.

If you want to go with illegal but free (I do not reccomend it), you can get songs from Limewire, Frostiwre, or Morpheus. Three warnings I must issue:
1) Only download songs that say "Mp3" under file format.
2) Some ISP's will cut off your internet service if you use limewire
3) Make sure you have strong Anti-Virus software on your computer, b/c the free svcs are littered with viruses/adware/etc.

I copy songs into my mp3 audio player


check the type of file format, it will say .wma, mp3, mp4, avi, some players can only play .wma, or .mp3 i pods use mp4, or something, if not an ipod than convert the music to .mp3 or .wma and re load into the mp3 player. are you using a sansa? in the picture above, if so then you can just click the mouse on the the song hold it and drag and drop the song into the player folder. here try this hook your player to your pc, open up my computer, select the drive that idetifies your player, double click, find a file that says audio or music open it that is the directory folder for the music to play from in your player, now keep that open, and open up the folder where you have stored the music in you pc and select whatever song you want, click and hold the mouse button on the song drag the song over to the player folder and let go of the mouse button within seconds it should appear, but like I said before make sure .wma or .mp3 is at the end of the song title, like this
All along the watchtower.wma or Sweet emotion.mp3 , it also helps to adjust the windows smaller to fit them both on the screen that way you can just drag and drop faster. I hope thiis helps.

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.

When i try to sync the music it says error


THE SYNC FEATURE DOES NOT WORK ON ALL PLAYERS! WHEN YOU PLUG IN YOUR MP3 A SCREEN SHOULD APPEAR... OPEN THE PLAYER... CLICK MUSIC AND YOU SHOULD GET A BLANK SCREEN OPEN SONG FOLDER WINDOW AND DRAG SONGS TO MUSIC WINDOW ON PLAYER. MAKE SURE UNIT IS ON .THIS SHOULD WORK FOR YA!

Stopped playing music


Hello,

Since you have a MAC, your probably using ITUNES, ITUNES are MP4 format which this unit doesnt play, you have to make sure what your putting on is MP3 audio files:

Here is a guide on how to convert songs to MP3 on ITUNES:

http://www.wellesley.edu/Computing/Idocs/Itunes/convertMP3.html

Once you get the audio files converted, drag and drop on the drive from where they are saved on your computer.

To play the audio files:

hold the play button until red light comes on, then press Play again, light should blink which means its playing.

Sylvania Video MP3 Player says it will hold 500 songs, however, my will only play 25, says it has only 25 songs, but when connected to my Windows media player, all the song(137) will play on the player?


I understand what you are feeling. It took me 4 hours to figure this one out. You have to make sure that the MP3 Player registers to your computer first and you can do this by connecting and disconnecting the system until it finds the new hardware. Then you open the drive with you voice file in it and then you have to drag your music and put it into the voice folder and then when you disconnect the divice from the computer, the music will be on your MP3 player. Then you can click on the music icon and then you will see voice and then you can see your music as well. And you should be ready to listen to your MP3 Player.
