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 can I put music on Sansa MP3 player from Macbook Pro?


Not to sure about a mac but I think mac's use a mp4 format when it rips a cd, and the Sansa will use a mp3 file. You can download a free program to convert these files but again, I know where for a PC but not a mac. Look for free mp4 to mp3 converter program for Mac..

Hi Alissa:

I had the same problem. After researching, I tried the following which worked for me.

I control clicked or right clicked the mp3 file. A list comes up. Choose "convert ID3 tags." Then click ID3 tag version box and choose v1.0.

If that doesn't work, choose the other choices below v1.0. Also, be sure to eject the Sansa via the file, not just remove it. It may not work otherwise. Good luck. Rita

Decided against buying the San Disk Sansa Clip because it does not appear to be Mac compatible. I do not like Windows applications as they always fail or cause other problems.

Using iTune cards for Sansa Clip MP3 Player


Sansa MP3 players will not play iTunes songs. Only iPods play iTune songs. Visit Limewire to download songs that you can play on your MP3 player.

Unable to download itunes from itunes library to sandisk clip mp3


Make sure the files are in MP3 or WMA file format. If they are in a different file format other than the ones above convert them because for audio those two are the file format that the sansa clip supports. Im not sure but iTunes convert songs to AAC or MP4 depending on the settings of it.

The best way to transfer songs tot he sansa clip is to change the mode of the player to MSC by going to Settings and then USB Mode. This would help detect the drive as a flash drive so you could copy and paste songs to it.
