Part II: How do I add or delete files, copy from CD to my Mp3 Player with Windows Media Player?


Part II - Windows Media Player by Tha Mp3 Doctor

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

Make sure that Windows Explorer is configured to display hidden and system files. Open the "My Computer" icon on the desktop; select menu "Tools: Folder Options..."; select the "view" tab; select the "Show hidden files and folders".

If that doesn't work, try formating the Sansa C240. Press the "Menu" button, scroll down and select "System Info", scroll down and select "Format".
It should erase the flash memory and create the required folders.

Turn on the mp3
go to settings
go to system settings
then go to USB MODE
try first setting "AUTO DETETECT"
IF THAT DOES NOT WORK TRY MTP
AND THEN MSC

ONE OF THOSE SETTINGS WILL WORK..

you can use any of those media programs to sync music on but when you want to put videos on pictures on you have to use the sandisk sansa converter software.

To delete songs from your device follow the steps below
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync panel in your windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
To format it..on your device..go under..menu, setting and there should be a format option option there..let me know if that doenst work for you...
Hope this helps

Three possibilities:
1) your music service subscription expired (or the license on your songs expired) - solution: update them
2) You switched from msd to mtp mode - solution: switch to AUTO
3) Your DB has been corrupt - solution: update the firmware from the manufacturer's website, or format the player - see my help file on this under my profile

You can use Limewire,Frostwire,Rhapsody.
But i think it will only work with Microsft.
i dont think it really matters. you can use RealPlayer.

hope this helps =))
