The MUSIC folder is a "hidden" folder when in MSC mode.
To view it (assuming you're using Windows XP) go to:
My Computer>Tools>Folder Options>View Tab.
Scroll down till you see Hidden Files and Folders
and click on Show Hidden Files and Folders, and then OK.
You should then be able to see all the folders on your Sansa. The "hidden" folders will appear slghtly lighter in color. This is where you can delete click on folder then go toleft of screen to "delete this folder" (or open folder and click individual song" then go to left of screen

Follow up to Sara16. If you cannot see the folder try disabling the Show Hidden Files and folder on the Tools>Folder Options> View Tab . For you to see the hidden folders on your computer.

Re: how do i delete pics from my sandisc sansa e260.

What you need to do is this. i cant help you if you have a mac but i can help you if you have a pc. for pcs, you need to plug in your player.once its connected, double click "my computer".in it, the player should have registered and their should be an icon that says "sandisk sansa e260" ( or something like that, i couldnt exsactly tell you considering my player is completely busted at the moment.)then you should see a bunch of files.the files will include album art,songs,and folders for videos or the pictures folder you can access your pictures,and right click on the files you wish to delte, and simply just...hit delete.

I cannot delete songs from Sansa E260

Ok, Sansa made it a little difficult this time,

"Connect your player, of course. Go to "My Computer" > "Sansa e260". There are hidden files. To unhide go to "Tools" (located on the menu bar) > "Folder Options..." > hit the "View" tab > select "Show hidden files and folders". You will see more folders to appear in a faded color. Click on the "MUSIC" folder. Click on the artist, then album then select the song, right click and down to delete." --Yahoo Answers

Sansa e260 has no space left to write the database info. Vista and also Windows Media Player don't ''see'' any files. I can listen to all the music on the MP3 but I want to delete some and add others.

Same problem delete a couple of songs up to 6 mg or 10 whatever then allow to refresh then download your songs back in the music file. the sansa needs some memory to know it has the sdcard in it...

Go to my computer scroll to sansa and open the media folder and open each sub folder and delete manually then delete the folders themselfs then format a couple of times hope this works
Start over put new songs on it

When it comes to deleting songs, I went on the program I use to get my music on and clicked on the sansa 260 and found my playlist. I bet if you connect your sansa and look around that program, you could probably find your playlist and start deleting.
