So I can add songs all day long on my Sansa, but it will not delete them. It will at least connect to RealPlayer, if I try to delete any music through there, the Sansa just freezes up and restarts itself. It does the same thing if I even try to connect with either Rhapsody or Windows Media Player. Not sure what to do, have tried everything I can think of. At this point I would be willing to format it and start all over, but it won't even allow that.

There are 2 ways to delete music files. You can delete them from the player directly or using the computer. To delete music files directly from the Sansa player, follow these steps: 1. In playback mode, press Submenu button. 2. Select the Delete Song item.
To delete music files using the computer, follow these steps: 1. Connect your Sansa to the computer. 2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial connection. 3. Locate the folder where your music files are stored. 4. Highlight and delete the music files or folder.
Connect the Sansa to your computer using the supplied cable. Open up the operating system's explorer window. The Sansa will show as either a Sansa or a removable hard drive, depending on the USB mode. Either way, open it and you'll see a folder named "MUSIC". Open that. You can either delete entire albums or navigate into them and delete individual tracks.

Oh lol this is easy. just go onto realplayer or something then go on the tab burn/transfer then it will tell u your songs delete them all. then try turning your mp3 on and going to "settings" then go all the way to the bottom of that page then click "reset all" then go back to windows media player and put your songs on.
Try it in your realplayer and see if you can add and delete there after you syncronize it, Try that see if it works for you, Hope so, also if you do manage to hook up with usb go into the setting and check and make sure that all options are check that you want to work, If you see that there is a way to let the sanddisk manage music on my sansa or you can do it, If sandisk is managing it, It will not let you add music, so change that and see if that helps ya out, You may also notice that there is another way to connnect in the sandisks options again, I hope that gets you up and saving music, Take Care and Happy Holidays
I found the best way to delete your mp3; go to start..find you device in "my computor" it will be a generic drive. right click and go to "format" click and it will prompt you to delete "playlist".."audio" or "music". However it will erase everything on your mp3 and allow new downloads. if you want to save some files; Plug mp3 in usb port..you will get prompt to define which system to play files. I use realplayer. scroll down until you can select "rca (G)" click "view" your mp3 will load and display all songs..you can then select and delete any or all, right click and choose option. To load; choose burn/transfer scrool down on the leftside to rca (G) and you can choose from you music menu ( I suggest making a playlist first to indentfy what songs you prefer, you can always add more from all music menu. add any files that you like until full. depending on song generally about 50 to 65 son on the 512 model. Do not worry about too many songs.. NO harm....they just won't fit.... I hope this help anyone with this problem
You can delete them thru My Computer.
Double click on the Sansa (m200), inside you will see a Music Folder. Inside is your individual tracks, separated by album names.
You can add or delete all music from here.
Best of Luck.
You can manually delete the music thru My Computer.
My Computer>Device Name (c250)>Media>Music You can see all of the music by albums and delete what you want.
Please add to this question if you need more assistance.
Best of Luck.
