The Sansa e-series works with microSD cards. While microSDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I cant add music to my mp3 player


Hi there

Pls check to see if the memory of the mp3 player is not full if so you will not be able to add music to your player,try freeing up space on your player by deleting unwanted songs from your player so as to be able to add more music

Also check to see if the usb cable you are using is not defective by testing it on another system to see if it works

Also make sure your system recognizes the mp3 player if it doesnt you wont be able to add music to the player.

Cant play the music


Add music to I9

Connect your i9 to your PC via the USB cable.
On the phone select "Mass Storage Device".

On the PC you will see 2 new drives appear.
One will be the SD card. The other is the Phones internal memory.

Now just simply copy your MP3 files to the Memory card folder "My Music".
Do not use the phones internal memory as it just is not big enough.


The Audio player will only play music from a folder called "My Music" or "MP3"
depending on which firmware version you have on your i9. If one doesn't work try naming it the other!
Also make sure you are selecting the right storage area in the Audio player options, either the phone
or the memory card, because there can be identical music folders on both, and if you don't choose the
correct storage location, your music files still won't show in the Audio player!
Make sure the audio file is in a format the i9 can play. Known music file types are mp3, wav, amr, m4a, & mp4.
DO NOT place music in sub folders within either of the My Music or MP3 main folders, the Audio player
will not find them unless the music files are directly within the proper My Music or MP3 folders!

Every time you add new music to your i9 you will need to refresh the List in order for the audio
player to see all the newly added songs. To do this open the player. Tap "List" at the bottom of
the screen. Tap "Options". Tap "Refresh list". You can also go into the audio player settings &
turn ON the "List auto gen." option. If the option is ON, then after you add new music, the new
music should be added to the entire list of music already showing. If you have problems with the
music list showing up empty, or new music you have just added not showing up in the current list
of songs, then try turning OFF the List auto gen option and refresh the list manually again by using
the Refresh list option as described earlier. Manually refreshing the music list must be done every
time you add new music files to the phone if the List auto gen option is OFF.

You get to the List auto gen option by two ways with the Audio player open and onscreen
for most i9 firmware (some firmware might not have it, or may be in another area);

1.) Tap the little wrench icon to the far right on the black option panel,
then scroll down to the List auto gen. option!

2.) Tap the List option at the bottom of the screen, tap the Options button
at the bottom of the
screen, tap the Settings button, scroll down to List auto gen.

MP3 wont play in my LGkeybo


I have a Keybo 2 phone so I assume the procedure is the same for the first generation Keybo.

1) First of all, only MP3 format works, period. Don't waste time trying to load WMA or any other music format.

2) Get a micro SD card as this opens up other features of the media functions

3) Using the USB cable, connect your phone to the computer and there should be 2 file browsers that will show up: one for the internal memory and the other for the external memory (micro SD).

4) On the external memory browsing window you should find a MY MUSIC folder. Copy all your MP3 music files into this folder.

5) Unplug the USB cable and open your phone's music player. It will detect the new songs and build update the library.

There you go, you're all set! It took me a couple of hours of searching and tryouts but this works every time. Good listening!

My m25 doesn't load with a memory card (2Gb)


I think that the M25 only supports 1GB memory cards. (I've never tried a larger one in mine) Motorola's website only says up to 1GB.

You might be running into a problem with the new card being a SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card and not just a SD (Secure Digital) card. I have had similar problems with SDHC cards when I put then in older products that have regular SD slots (Photosmart Printer). The cards will still fit into the slots, however the method as to which they are read and written to is different which causes the problem. So, maybe try updating computer hardware drivers or mp3 firmware from the Sansa website. Also, if you can, exchange the 4gb SDHC for a 4gb SD card, this could be a pain in the ****, but this solution should fix your problem definately. Hope some of this helped.

Problems with my gpx mw3836


It is easier to get a SD memory card for it. XP will recognize the removable storage easy and you can bypass the connection issue. Drag and drop the music onto the window which represents the SD memory card and then just put the SD memory card into the GPX MP3 player. I have the same MP3 player and it works nice... it was a good deal for the money! Take the savings and invest in a cheap SD memory card and you will be happy.... I was!
:-) Good Luck!

Unable to find new songs on SD card


If your device is too full, it wont have enough room to create the music database for the new songs. Move some of your music off of the device onto the memory card. Try to keep about 10MB free for each GB of music you have. You can add to this question for further assistance. Best of Luck.
