Sansa Clip+ 4Gb with 32Gb Micro sd hc
I recently dragged and dropped 14gb worth of music into the 'removable disk (E' which is plugged into my sansa clip+ the first time i did it all the music showed up as strange characters like └ïÔvÍté╗.▒îU. So i formatted the micro sdhc on my laptop and tried putting the music on again. This time it has all been transferred but is not showing up on the sansa clip+. In system settings>info it shows that the memory has been filled but says there are no songs in the main music player.

AAC files are not supported on the Clip+.
MP3Tag is a great (free) dedicated ID3 tag editor. The tag format your player is looking for is ID3v2.3 ISO-8859-1. You can change the default setting in the Tools menu of the program, open up your files in it, check and/or edit anything you want, or simply just hit the SAVE icon to save them all in the newly changed format.
Note that it's better to make any changes to tags of files while they are on your computer rather than the player. Make your changes, delete the files from the player and then transfer over the newly edited files.

Then you have more than just .mp3 & .aac files. Apparently you also have .wma (windows media audio) files, maybe ripped from CD's through Windows Media Player perhaps? These will play fine in your Clip+ (as long as they are the regular wma file and not WMA Pro).
These use a different tag format as you've discovered. Leave that format alone. You can change any of the fields (Artist, Title, Genre, etc.) if you want or need to though.
