    What type(s) of files? If they are pictures or videos, did you use the Sansa Media Converter to convert them to a format the Sansa can handle?

Labeling Unkown Songs: open Windows Media Player and go to libary click on artist. The sub folders will be named by the artists and the unknown songs will be in the sub that say's unknown. Click on unknown then right click on the title bar put a check next to artist and album artist. Right click song under artist or album artist or both and type in the name of the artist etc.... This change in your computers Music folders also then syc with your sansa or media player then load songs to it........

SOURCE: unknown mp3 files

mine does that all of the time, you simply have to delete them and put them on again. If you put the files in a "new" folder in the music folder it seems to keep them from becoming corrupted, I would also put the player in MSC mode and do a checkdisk.

Need to deleet songs

Deleting Files,Pictures,etc from MP3 Player
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there. Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible. Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete" Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want. Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

Everything is now "unknown"

Still can't explain the unknown status of all the files on the device, but I turned the device off for several minutes and when I returned it had zeroed out leaving an empty device ready to reload anything I wanted. I guess I initially cycled it off and on too quickly.

Mp3 in as "unknown". Won't play

download Switch by searching for it on google...then you can change the formats of your songs to anything you like and you can change how big the file gets converted to!!!


you can make them pretty small and then you can fit about 2,000 songs on a 2 GB!


hope this helps!

don't worry Switch does not give you spyware1.gif or viruses1.gif.. I checked! :]


this will "clean up" the files you want to put on your sansa...

it really works!! AND ITS FREEEEEE

Unknown files in Media Player

You will most likely need to do all your renaming inside of iTunes. This will save you a lot of frustration in the long run.

Unknown Format

It sounds like these wma files have DRM protection.

You can still play these songs on your mp3 player, but you must use Windows Media Player to transfer them.

To do this, connect your mp3 player to your computer, then open Windows Media Player. In WMP select "Sync" & you should see your mp3 player in the right-hand pane. Drag & drop your wma files across. It's a slow way to do it, but the only way to transfer wma files with DRM.

Let me know how you get on!

Problem with Sandisk e270

All files need to have filenames and titles ("title" field in the summary under file properties on your PC). Otherwise the player will list it as "unknown" and it will NOT play. You have to drag it out of the player, rename, and then drag it back, if you're in MTP mode (which you SHOULD be!). Multiple copies of the same track sounds like you have some tracks listed under different artist names--you gotta keep a clean library!! Go back and check all the summary attributes for your mp3 files... Of course, you're using WMA files so who the heck knows. I would be sticking with mp3 format, if you want my opinion.......
