    I have a Sansa e260 and it just started making previous songs "bad tracks". Being good with a computer I formatted it but then when I went in to sync songs back on it said that I had the same exact memory use as i did before i formatted it. All of the songs were still there but when i disconnected it and went into songs there was nothing. I have started to fix that problem by individually erasing them but I put songs on it agian and now the "bad tracks" are back. What do you suggest?

Ouch !

can you say FORMAT ? lol

This is the exact situation I've been talking about , make sure that you check each file with an mp3 encoder checker such as encspotbasic 2.0 before loading them to the E260.

you could try MOVING the bad tracs , instead of delete , and you can try to OVERWRITE the bad tracs with a fresh copy of the file ( one checked with the encoder checker )

these silly methods may or may not work out , let me know what happens.

Deleting songs.


Your DB might be corrupt. Folow the delete procedure one more time:
Delete Music Files
1) Connect your Sansa to the computer.
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
connection.
3) Select the place where you want to delete music files from
4) Highlight and delete the music file/s or folder from My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\MUSIC
folder. (You can also select from a variety of music
software programs to transfer/synchronize your files).

If that fails, go ahead and update the firmware - it will delete everything, and allow you to start over from scratch among other things.

Whas the best way to delete songs off the Sansa 250e? ie. "bad tracks"


The songs are in the wrong format or have expired licenses

There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

Sansa is unable to synch new music and only has 5 "bad tracks" on it that I can't delete...


Two possible methods:
Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Bad Tracks


I'm not sure if this will work all of the time, or if it is the only way to do it so please excuse me if I'm wrong or if it doesn't work.

What I did was purged my device of all songs by going to "My Computer" and I clicked my device. I went to "MUSIC" and deleted everything. I Then switched to "MSC" as the USB Mode. I plugged it in my computer and then disconnected it so that it would restart. When it does it should say "Refreshing Database". When it was finished all the "Bad Tracks" were gone.

Isn't it that you just go to my computer and delete it there?
It says to delete it entirely from it.

Bad tracks won't delete


Have you tried updating the firmware. Even if it is the lastest edition, download the firmware manually and run the software. Then format in Windows Media player. Best Regards Keith
