I uploaded some songs into the player but it wont play them, when I hook it up to the computer it displays all the song and the computer plays them. what’s wrong with it? please help
I’m having the same problem. MP3 file shows that it’s on the Sansa Shaker, and it will play when connected to computer, but doesn’t play on just Sansa Shaker. Did you find out how to fix this?
I am having the same problem is there an answer?
I got this from another thread further down - 2chope was the orginator - I followed this pretty much and now the songs will play…darn good thing or else I would have some sad little girls on X-mas day
with my Windows Media player - I was able to go to the Rip options and change to MP3 format and then I picked the 256 (there was no sliding thing…just about 5-6 choices for bitrate)
I had the same problem.
Tapeworm helped me.
okay - go to windows media player. you can either click on tools and then options or
go to the rip tab in windows media player which is faster and easier to find.
click on the rip tab scroll to format and select Mp3.
click on the rip tab again and go to more options and click on this.
go to copy protect music remove tick,but remember to reverse all this when finished or drm (digital right mess later down the track).
stay in this menu and go to the what looks like a slider put kbps to 256. The slider is called audio quality.
(if the format doesn’t have the options of mp3 go to rip tab more options click then click on file type and tick the box that says mp3.) but before you go to file type remember to click on apply first.
Then insert cd and rip music.
you click on rip and your cd name will be first on the drop down boxs.
once music has downloaded you then plug your ubs cable to sansa shaker and your pc then click on the sync tab and select the add to sync list and then press start sync.
It does work but remember to de select all that you have done except in file type mp3 that can stay.
hope that helps. good luck
So you are saying it won’t play anything but mp3 format? No WMA, even unprotected?
yes. mp3 only
