Please check the format of the files , connect to the PC or remove the micro sd card and use a adapter to be used on the card reader of the PC. If the format is not correct you can change and reinstall with the required type. Also scan for virus or error files which will not be read.
The Sansa Shaker supports only .mp3 and .wav file formats. It is possible that you have synced WMA or M4A audio files that have DRM protection. These formats are not supported by the SANSA SHAKER.
Songs purchased through Amazon or copied from your music collection in mp3 format will play on your SHAKER.
I had the same problem. The songs that won't play are probably MP4 files and the shaker only plays MP3 files. You need to change the file format of the songs on the shaker to MP3 files. I downloaded "Media Coder" which was free and it converted all the songs on the shaker that wouldn't play to MP3 files and they play now. Google "Media Coder" and download the free program, it is very easy to use. I had the songs converted in about 2 minutes. Make sure the shaker is plugged into computer so that you can choose the files on the shaker to convert. Hope this helps.
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.
It can only be mp3 format. ONLY MP3. Convert all your music to this format only using this website:
be patient the site is very busy
Even if your file has been renamed to a mp3 file it will not work until you convert the files.
I have 2 of these and had to do this with all my music. Then after conversion click and drag the songs.
SHAKER ONLY TAKES MP3 FORMAT!!!!!
Use this site to change your format to the correct one for the sansa
shaker. This is the only way to load songs from your cds MWA will not
work at all. Must convert all files to MWA use site below
Instead of deleting the songs you may need to format.
If you haven't tryed this follow these simple steps.
To format your device first click on "Start" then click on "My Computer" now look for your mp3 player, if it hasn't been change the names usually called "Removable Disk", once you've found that right-click on it then click on "Format".
Now you've formatted put songs on then try your mp3 player to see if the problems be fixed.
