Question about SanDisk Sansa c140 MP3 Player

Open Question

Kinda weird problem

I legally bought downloads of two albums on artist Girl Talk's myspace page. One album is called Feed the Animals and one is called Night Ripper. I was able to burn CDs and both play in car and home. All the files work fine on my Computer in WMP and Real Player. Now here is the weird thing. My SanDisk Sansa C140 mp.3 player plays Night Ripper tracks of which I have a couple in the folder but none of Feed the Animals. There are 14 tracks in the Feed the Animals folder and they all show up in the window of the player but won't play, and ultimately freezes up the player and I have to take the battery out. I am baffled why they won't play, and have tried renaming the files, etc. to no avail. Are there too many tracks in the folder? I have more than 14 Dave Matthews songs and they play fine.

I noticed that the tracks are encoded with LAME v3.97 on Feed the Animals (but not Night Ripper) but I even wrote the musician and his technical crew and they said that had nothing to do with it.

I'd say try going into properties of the file your are trying to transfer into your MP3. Highlight all of the songs you want on the same album. You will then need to right click on them to go into the properties menu. Once you are there go to the Summary Tab, you will need to enter under "Album Title", the same title for all of the music you want to group. This should then in turn create an album with all of your favorite songs on your MP3 player. Good luck!

SOURCE: SanDisk Sansa C250 - How do I rename songs?

You can go to the file directly and rename it if Windows Media Player wont allow it.

The file should be located in the My Music Folder.

Right Click on the track and select Properties>Summary Tab. Then you can edit any of the fields you want.

The next time you open Windows Media Player, the changes will be there.

Best of Luck.

Songbird is unauthorized free music download website. Because they arent part of a large music selling company, they are more likely not to have the correct formats set for mp3 players or other music devices. You have to have the right formats to get organization for the songs to match with correct artist and album. Example: If there is a song that has format WMV and the song's album is format WAV,then its gonna confuse your music device, so the music device will put the WMV format song with the wrong WMV format album in its alphabetical order instead of the songs matching album WMV format. So restore your mp3 player and try to use a legalized music download website.

Downloads music, but doesnt show albums or artists

Some players require files to be placed in appropriate directories. For example audio files should placed in the folder called "audio" and video files in a folder called "video" and so on.
Some mp3 players use a method called "syncing" to transfer songs to mp3 players. Syncing can be done only using the software that comes bundled with the player. Perhaps you should install the software and try using it to copy the songs again?
you can download the software from

Get album art on g1

To do this you're going to have to re-copy all of the music you want album art for to your G1! Sorry! But here goes...
Firstly, the reason the album art isn't there is because it wasn't bought online, therefore the album art may not be encoded onto the songs. However it's not that hard to encode art yourself on Windows Media Player.
You have to look for the album art online, and save it on your computer. Then, find the songs you want on Windows Media Player (if they are from the same album then ctrl+click them all) then right click. On the right-click menu there should be an option called Advanced Tag Editor. Click that, then the Pictures Tab, and click Add. Then find your album art and select Cover (Front) from the Picture Type drop down menu. Hopefully that will encode your songs with the album art, then you can sync them with WMP or copy and paste them as normal.

Wont play Artist/Album

if the music was not odtained from a legal source then sometimes it will not sort itself out on the mp3 player, because the info on it is imcomplete, it will only show up on SHOW ALL SONGS, SONGS, or whichever the folder is that shows all the songs on the device.

good day

The album view, I believe, will only show "unknown artists" under the albums folder. You may have to go to the artists section to find the other albums.

Music loaded but not recognized under Artist

If you use a fileshare program to download music, sometimes some of the song information is changed and/or deleted. The album information is probably still with the song, but the artist info isn't. It's really stupid but the only thing you can do is just find the song through albums instead of artist.

Ipod doesn't show music in artists, only in albums.

Go to Get Info and unclick "Compilation". If it's a compilation it won't show the different artist, which is actually a cool idea.

I can't play my songs

Well to purchase the rights for the song you can (and should !!) use Napster. Its completely legal, the software is free. You can choose to pay per month for a thing called napster to go. You can have that cause your mp3 player is comatible with that special. its 15 $ a month, you get unlimited downloads to your mp3 player! and all legally. Or you have the option to buy songs or albums for 1,19$ the song or about 9,99$ the album. And the selection of artist is huge. go to for usa, and for canada.
