Syncing album to my MP3 Clip Sport

I can set-up the Sync on my new computer in the Media Player but the computer is not reading the MP3 player when it is connected with the USB port. However the computer is charging the MP3 Player when connected. How do I trouble shoot getting this new computer with Windows 11 to read my MP3 Player?

Try to use the micro USB cable that came with your player. This cable is capable of charging your player AND data transfer with your player. Many other common micro USB cables do not include wires for data transfer. These are a bit thinner than the SanDisk cable.

Appreciate your response. Did not get a micro USB cable with my Clip Sport. In the past and my prior laptop I was able to do data transfer/charging through a regular USB cable.

I have about 6 micro USB cables that came with a variety of my devices over the years. Only 2 of these work with my Clip Sport for data transfer (they all work for charging). AND, the original SanDisk cable always works.

Thanks - then we don’t know why there is no data transfer.

If you still cannot synchronize your smart playlist to all devices, even if your Apple Music subscription is no longer valid, you only need a powerful Apple Music Converter, such as ViWizard Audio Converter, to help download and convert your smart playlist songs. DRM protection can be removed from various Apple Music content, including Apple Music, iTunes files, iTunes audiobooks, and Audible audiobooks. You can make your smart playlist songs compatible with iTunes applications in MP3, WAV, or AAC formats, or download them in six supported Audio file format: MP3, M4A, M4B, WAV, AAC, and FLAC. Afterwards, you can replace the songs in the smart playlist with iTunes compatible files and sync them to your MP3 Clip Sport.

Thanks for the link, you made my day.
