Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
So lately my mp3 has been going crazy, it would say i have bad tracks, it would freeze on me and i'll wait til the battery dies, etc...
but what's bothering me the most is, somehow, there isn't that much space left anymore. so i was thinking to reformat the whole mp3. So i took out all the music and videos, etc in the mp3. But i notice on one particular folder, it had all these files, folders, etc, weird things that i've never seen and it sure doesn't look normal, like some folders would have the name:
and whats crazy is, i highlighted all of the weird files/folders to see how much space is it taking up, and its a total of more that 32 GB!
and my mp3 is just 4 GB!! and when i check the settings on the mp3, it says i have like 200MB left but i have NOTHING in the mp3 at all!
and now i'm trying to delete those things and trying to reformat it but it won't even let me touch the folders or delete them, and i can't reformat it, i tried re-formatting it on the setting menu and on the computer but it won't let me at all.
and whats getting weird is my USB too.
i plug the mp3 in the 2nd USB mode (sorry i can't remember which one is it) and it pops up the screen and does everything normally, but when i try to safely remove the hardware, its not even detected! so i pull the usb out of the mp3 and it'll just freeze and stay at that charging mode screen even though its not even plug in or anything.
**** when i use the 1st USB mode, it doesn't do that at all and it is detected. yeah i guess you can say i might as well use the 1st mode but i would like to know if there's anything i can do or if there's anything wrong that i should know.
it just sucks to wait until the battery dies and i want to listen to music you know...
anyhow, if anyone knows a soulution, ESP. to the reformatting/weird files/folders, PLEEASSEEE HEEELLPPP!!
