Deleting music on sansa e200

I copied a couple of albums I now do not want taking up space on my sansa. I cannot figure out how to delete these albums. Help. I tried everything I could think of, even deleting while synced to my computerl. Media direct will not let me delete on the sansa. So what do I do. I am no techno wizard and this really has me stumped and irritated. Help.

My solution would that you uncheck the albums from the Program that you use to sync your music or vids. Usually that means unchecking song by song or it all depends on how you have your files organized. See if that helps

How do you delete photos?


If you go into Windows Media Player, you have to change the Library option from Music to Photos and THEN go into the Sync tab - should now display photos instead of music.

Alternatively, you can double-click My Computer, double-click the icon of the Sansa, and find the images or picture folder - you may have to change your usb mode to msc in order to view this folder (don't forget to change it back later, or not all of your files will show up when you want them to). ONLY delete image files - if you delete system files, your mp3 player will become unusable.

Or, you can follow the method reccomended by your manual - the full user's manual is available from Sanidsk's website:
Delete Photos and Video
The photos are stored in 2 locations on your Sansa…My Album and
Thumbnails. The instructions below for deleting photos and video from your
player were created using Windows XP with Windows Media Player 11.
To delete photos from your Sansa, please execute the following steps:
1) Connect your Sansa e200 to your computer
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
connection
3) Click the drive containing your photos
4) Click on the photo folder.
5) Highlight and delete the photos stored in My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\Photo\My Album
and My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\Photo\thumbnail\My Album

If you are not able to thru Windows Media Player, you can open the device thru My Computer>Device Name (e250)>MUSIC FOLDER.

You should see the music arranged in folders by album information.Just open the folder and right click and select delete on the tracks you no longer want.

Disconnect the device and it will restart.




Best of Luck.

The Music DB refers to the Music Database, or the Artist, Album, and Song info.

The error means your device is too full. It needs some free space on the device to create this information.

Connect your device to the PC and manually delete some files from it in My Computer>Device Name (m240)>MUSIC Folder.

It needs 6MB of free space, so you may need to delete several songs.

Disconnect the device from the PC, it should restart and you should be ok. If the message continues, keep deleting files until its gone,



Best of Luck.

My sansa wouldn't work


The device needs 6MB free for each GB of music.

Delete about 10 or 15 songs and you should be all set.





Best of Luck.
