“Windows Media Player encountered a problem while synchronizing the file to the device. For additional assistance click web help.”
That is the latest error I’m getting. Microsoft’s web site then says: You’ve encountered error message C00D1236 while using Windows Media Player. Cannot sync the file.
So, what led up to that is:
had problems with the device for a long time.
Finally investigated and found the lastest firmware and updated the device. This fixed some problems, which is great, but caused worse problems.
I was getting: “Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.” on several random files. It would do that and then if I wiped everything out and tried again, it might do that with different files. It was also taking a long time between files while syncing. So, I found this post: http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board/message?board.id=clip&message.id=18501&query.id=12003#M18501 and formatted with Windows Media Player. (I’ve now formated every possible way I think.) Sure enough, it fixed that. The problem files synced right away, but then nearly all my other files failed to sync giving the most recent error.
A. By the way, the playlist does not work. Even if I get the playlist on the device, there are no songs in it. The songs/podcasts are only available via other classifications.
B. Having installed the firmware update program, there’s now some remnant resident program which dies when I plug in my Clip. “Universal firmware updater for Sandisk Sansa MP3 players has stopped working.” I can disable/uninstall that program, but it’s just another problem. I am running Vista with all the latest patches.
Any help? Need to be able to sync all files and have the playlists work right.
