It is because you have ripped the songs from the cd's and those ripped songs occupy more memory than average songs. For ejample: a simple song has a bitrate of 128 Kbps and a ripped song it has a bitrate from 224 to 320 Kbps. The difference is the quality of the songs

    Thankyou for your help. So can you please tell me, will the quality be better from the ripped songs off the cd's of they have a larger bitrate? (I am a novice at this!)

"No Song" is displayed on SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 player even though music is...


The songs ripped from CD are not in the right format. In Windows Media Player, highlight the Rip tab, click the black arrow under the Rip tab, select Rip Options --> Format --> Mp3. Now, re-rip the songs. Before you transfer these tracks to the player, make sure you delete the tracks that are on the mp3 player now, or else Windows Media Player wil ltell you that the tracks are already there. Now, transfer the newly-ripped Mp3 tracks to your Sansa. Should be good to go.
This will help.Good Luck

Windows mEDIA PLAYER SAYs my sansae260 is full, but device won't sync. It says no song. I tried to reset, but still says no song


change the usb modes also....MSC will allow you to see the expansion card ( 2Gig E200 series 4gig Fuze) mtp won't.....MTP shows you your music folder in the media folder thats where you put your music plus expansion.....
Delete songs and Format (Helps with trying to delete BAD TRACKS and folders that will not delete full memory(Some ripped CD folders).. Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders themselves then format a couple of times hope this works

Purchased CD song to Sansa


Open Windows Media Player.
Click on the Rip tab.
Insert the CD into the computer.
Click Start Rip
Windows Media Player will convert the songs on the cd to a format that the Sansa player recognizes - may take a few minutes.
Click Sync.
Drag the files from the CD to the right window pane.
Click Start Sync.

Presto!

I am having trouble putting music on my sansa e250


okay, first thing you have to do is make sure you have songs in windows media player.  if you do not,  you will have to insert audio cd's into the computer and rip them from the cd's onto the computer.  to do that you must put the cd into the computer, and when windows media player comes up go to the rip tab and fin the button that says start rip or copy.


once you have the songs in the computer, you will have to plug your player into the computer.  windows media player will find it and take you to your library. if you are using windows media player 10 or lower, you will have to select your songs by holding down control and clicking on the songs you want to sync.  once you do that you must right click on one of the while still holding down control button on the keybord.  the click on add to sync list.


if you are using windows media player 11 or higher, you must click on the sync tab at the top of the screen and look to the left.  there will be a list, and in the list it will say library.  in the library list it will say songs, clikc on that.  follow the steps above for selecting songs. once you have the songs selected you must drag them over to the list to where it says SANSa e260 or whatever you device is called. once you have all the songs dragged over, you must click sync to player from the window on the right of the screen.  after it is done the songs will be on the player.

if something is not clear leave a comment on your page and i will explain it for you

Uploading songs


This player is not compatible with iTunes
Ripped from CD - acquire license by going into songs' Properties and clicking on license or digital rights tab; or try and re-sync

There could be something else wrong with player for which the above methods fail. In this casE:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
-----
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
