- The Sansa Clip will only play digital files that are in the MP3 format.
- Anything you "drag" to the Clip must be dragged to the MUSIC folder of the Clip drive represented on your desktop.
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.
(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.
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.
