Question about SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player

1 Answer

Shuffle seems to play same songs

I'm also interested in inserting songs at specific points in an already established playlist, and or rearranging song order on playlists. Can you tell me anymore about the shuffle feature or if the other insertions are possible?

The shuffle feature shuffles songs randomly - no way to change the order.

On the Sansa Clip, you have to make the changes to the song order in Windows Media Player first, before you transfer the playlist to the Sansa, using the advanced tag editor function; change the track number. If you have already transferred the song(s) over to the Sansa, you must delete the songs on the Sansa first, or else it will not accept the playlist transfer with the new track order. You can always go back and change the track numbers that are stored in your WMP library after you have transferred the playlist to the Sansa.

6th gen. nano has shuffle issues. plays same song over and over


The iPod's shuffle feature lets you randomize playback of albums, songs or even your entire music library. You may also find this feature useful if you want to listen to forgotten tracks in your library or discover songs you haven't listened to yet. Disabling the shuffle feature will return playback of a song list to its standard consecutive order. You can enable and disable the shuffle feature at any time.

Navigate to the main menu. Select "Settings." Scroll to the "Shuffle" option. Select "Songs" or "Albums." If you select "Songs," the iPod Classic will shuffle the songs on whatever song list you listen to. If you select "Albums," the iPod Classic will play all songs of an album you select in order and then randomly select another album. Navigate to the playlist or album to which you want to listen. Play a song to initiate the shuffle. b> iPod Nano and iPod Touch Tap the "Songs" icon on your nano home screen. If you are using an iPod Touch, open the "iPod" application. Navigate to the song list, playlist or album you want to play. Tap the "Shuffle" icon at the top of the list to activate the feature.

Real player library not refreshing..closing itself after 64%


After hearing one artist played over and over during a shuffled play of your entire music library in iTunes you may think your player has a preference of its own. Apple claims the iTunes' shuffle algorithm is completely random.1 The shuffle algorithm chooses songs "without replacement." In other words, much like going through a shuffled deck of cards, you will hear each song only once until you have heard them all... or until you have stopped the player or selected a different playlist.
iTunes Party Shuffle2 is a different matter. Its algorithm selects songs "with replacement," meaning the entire deck of cards is reshuffled after each song is played. The play higher rated songs more often option does exactly what it says, but how much preference is given to higher rated songs?
To test the option's preference for 5-stars, I created a short playlist of six songs: one from each different star rating and a song left un-rated. The songs were from the same genre and artist and were changed to be only one second in duration. After resetting the play count to zero, I hit play and left my desk for the weekend. To satisfy a little more curiosity, I ran the same songs once more on a different weekend without selecting the option to play higher rated songs more often. Monday morning the play counts were as shown in Table 1.

IPod classic stopped shuffling this weekend. I've had it for several months and it's worked just fine, but all of the sudden it stopped shuffling songs within playlists that were set to shuffle. ...


Hey press the play pause button and the enter button at the same time if it has a lock move it baca and forte 6 times while holding play pause button and enter/centered button for 6 seconds, that should solve from freezing ipods to non functioning well :)

I cant change my play list. i want to change my song and i cant reset any of my original ones


Open your MP3 through Windows Explorer, open the Playlists folder and delete whichever playlist you want deleted. Edit it through WMP11 and reinstall. You can rearrange and delete songs through Explorer, but you can't add songs.

Cant get songs onto ipod shuffle.(daughter has ipod touch)


Hi there,
When you go into the ipod section on iTunes, click the music tab, make sure 'sync music' is checked and 'selected playlists:' is also, then check the playlist you want to use. Click 'sync' button

If that don't work go back to the summary tab and hit 'restore' and follow the instructions to reset the ipod, resync and all should be fine.

All the best

Playlist


Yes - instead of dragging an entire playlist or an entire album onto the GoGear, just go to the Sync tab in Windows Media Player and drag the individual song that you want to transfer. The player also has several play modes - repeat, shuffle, etc. - shuffle will give you a certain degree of randomization.
