can I transfer an ASX file to my sansa clip +?

This is a download from an FM radio music show.the link is http://www.wdetfm.org/rss/.  THANKS!

You can transfer the file to your Clip, just like with any file, but as far as I’m aware, the Clip won’t play the file–it doesn’t do ASX.  But you could convert the file to MP3.  See:  http://www.ehow.com/how_5095835_convert-asx-files-mp-format.html

You can transfer the file to your Clip, just like with any file, but as far as I’m aware, the Clip won’t play the file–it doesn’t do ASX. (But I don’t recall someone asking about the ASX file format before–you could try playing it and see if it works.)

But you also could convert the file to MP3 format and use it on your Clip that way.  See:  http://www.ehow.com/how_5095835_convert-asx-files-mp-format.html

thanks but when I follow your link http://www.ehow.com/how_5095835_convert-asx-files-mp-format.html, it leads to another link Media-Convert which doesn’t seem to open.  By the way I’m using a Mac and the file I’m trying to open and convert is http://www.wdetfm.org/rss/archives/listen.php?show=71&date=1292043600.  I tried to transfer my asx file to my clip+ but when I disconect from the  Mac I can’t find it on the clip.  Anything I’m missing?

Yes, thats a text file (XML actually), not music:

Apparently the audio file you want is “ad_sat20101211.wma”.  You’ll need to find a program that can download over MMS (maybe WMP?).

Actually clinking your first link, they appear to give instructions explaining how to download the file.  Did you try them?
