SanDisk 2GB... | Answered on Sep 25, 2020


I've tried to get a replacement LCD for my SANSA, impossible so far.

There are some PARTS/REPAIR SANSA's on ebay, but must of them with the same problem. There was also a working LCD, I just fail on bidding.

If you can get a working LCD, the replacement is possible with a blower, directing heat to the specifyc connectors area, you can remove the broken one while the glue (some kind of silicon) is warm and flexible, you have to be careful when putting the new one, pins must be aligned, also you should do that whith both (broken and wkring) at the same time, so then you can use the glue still on the pins (golden connectors) area.

I got to remove the broken one and noticed (with my fingers) that the silicon can be used again, but since I didn't use a blower some of the pins (connectors) where damaged. Only halve of the process is confirmed.

Good luck, we'll wait 4 your results if you get a working LCD somewhere..

heres the answer to your problem. Edit the ID3 Tags on your songs. The player would determine how it would organize the songs on the player depending on the ID3 Tags of the song.

Thankyou

You need to fix the id3 tags of songs. Just follow below steps to do that. ID3 is a metadata container most used on audio format, which provides audio data standard for music files, including Title, Artist, Year, Genre and other great information. And all ID3 tags are supported by most player software, like iTunes, and Windows Media Player. On Windows 10, music files have included metadata information like song name, artist name, or genre, but there will be times when this data may show up wrong or appear missing for a song or an entire album.
To add tags to wav files, you can try Windows File Explorer.
1.Open the Windows File Explorer in your computer. (Windows key + E).
2.Browse the folder of the songs you want to add tags to wav files.
3.Right-click of the song, and then select "Properties".

4.Click to check the "Details" tab. It is well noted that all the details you see in the "Details" tab is part of the metadata information, and you can set wav ID3 tags by clicking the value field next to the property.

5.After updating the metadata information you like, click " Apply" and then "OK" button.
With Windows File Explorer, it will also improve your file search function and you do not have to set it to icon or details mode in order to change the sort settings and then switch it back to preview mode.

You must go in and manually edit the Id3 tag for these songs in Windows Media Player- time-consuming, but necessary

SanDisk Sansa... | Answered on Apr 24, 2020


Edit the Id3 tags manually - takes time, but if you have THAT type of computer config, then there's just no other way.

Hi, use this link it will be of great help to you...

Also to solve the Video and photo format, you will need to check on the manual what format does it play with.

If the format is different from the video format you want to download inside the player, you will be needing a converter to convert the video format to the player format of video..

you can download a video converter from the link below.."

Music is stored on your computer (or on the Internet) as .mp3 files. You can rip (convert) them from your own CDs or find them online for sale (like at Amazon) or as free songs (Google "mp3 blog".

Here are videos showing you how to get the music on the player. Look at No. 5 and 6.

The Sansa plays other files as well as .mp3, but start with .mp3, the most popular and least complicated kind of music file.

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.

the reason for this is that you dont have the apropriate video CODEC . you can download VLC player and make it your default media player, it opens allmost every thing :
http://sourceforge.net/projects/vlc/files/1.1.10/win32/vlc-1.1.10-win32.exe/download

and this is a codec pack for windows mediaplayer in case you dont want to use VLC:

Try the following program first, on the following link, if that fails to work for you, then try the second option I have provided. Let me know how this works out and if you need anything else.
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/ipod_itunes/sansadevicesyncwithitunes.html
2. Basically, when you buy music from iTunes, it comes with a copyright protection called DRM. These DRM-protected songs are locked so that they only work with Apple MP3 players. That means that if you bought a Microsoft Zune, you cannot use iTunes music.

So, what is the solution? You have to burn a CD. When you do this, the DRM is removed (because the music is converted to a non-DRM-compatible media). After you burn the CD, you can rip it to your PC as an MP3 file which no longer has DRM.

Alternatively, you can use TuneClone ( http://www.tuneclone.com/ ). TuneClone makes a virtual CD-ROM drive, tricking your PC into believing that you are burning a CD. Therefore, the DRM is removed without wasting a CD.

Here is a link to a tutorial using TuneClone and iTunes 8:

If you don't have DRM license for your music, it's because you haven't synced your player with the program on your computer in a while.
DRM is on your music because you most likely use a subscription service such as Napster or Rhapsody for your music.
Just plug your player into your computer and sync your device for the DRM license to refresh.

SanDisk Sansa... | Answered on Mar 12, 2020


DRM-protected WMA files are going to give you this problem, depending on where you got them from - it is not a defect with the player itself (a limitation, perhaps). For instance, Spiral Frog downloads will not be usable on this player. Nor will songs that do not have transfer rights.

Your best bet is to get songs that are in mp3 format - they will not give you any DRM issues.
