I just bought the Sansa 4GB Clip+, and put almost 600 songs on it, using Windows Media Player. When I finished loading all the songs, I thought I’d listen to some and see what the sound was like. The first song played fine, but then when it finished, it skipped through a bunch of songs, before finally landing on one and playing it. I skipped to the next song to see what would happen, and it did it again, over and over and over again.
So then I re-connected it to my computer and looked through the Sansa directory, and all the songs are there, and it shows how big each files are. It SAYS that the songs are there, and they’re taking up memory (it’ll say such and such song is 4MB, 7MB, 5MB, etc. They’re loaded on the MP3 player). But they won’t play.
It seems like most of the songs that will play, are MP3’s, but most of my songs are WMA. I rip them directly from CD’s onto Windows Media Player.
The songs are not corrupted, because I can listen to them just fine on my laptop. It just won’t play on the Sansa 4GB Clip+ for some reason.
I just deleted all the songs on the player, and am reloading them using a playlist this time.
Oh, some info about my laptop, I bought it last year, it has Windows 7, and the Windows Media Player I’m using is version 12.0.7600.16667
If I can’t find a solution for this, I’m taking it back to the store tomorrow. I hope someone can help though.
