Question about SanDisk Sansa e130 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Expansion card I deleted the songs from the expansion card I used with this device. It reads the device, reads that it is writing to it, but is not able to recognize any of the songs on the expansion card, just the internal memory. The card can be read in a separate card reader device, which shows all the songs as being there, so the card is functioning fine. These are the same songs which played off the same expansion card before, so format compatability in not the issue. The device just appears unable to refresh the song list and add the new ones. Please advise.

Re: expansion card

The issue with the card is not song format as you said it's the card format. When you put you're it into the CPU I?m assuming that you clicked yes on the warning/and or problem window and it formatted it to the CPU. So what you need to do is find what format the hardrive /and or internal memory is and format the card to that.

Windows mEDIA PLAYER SAYs my sansae260 is full, but device won't sync. It says no song. I tried to reset, but still says no song

change the usb modes also....MSC will allow you to see the expansion card ( 2Gig E200 series 4gig Fuze) mtp won't.....MTP shows you your music folder in the media folder thats where you put your music plus expansion.....
Delete songs and Format (Helps with trying to delete BAD TRACKS and folders that will not delete full memory(Some ripped CD folders).. Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders themselves then format a couple of times hope this works

I cant delete any songs


The e200 series players have 2 versions, plus a Rhapsody version.
How to check your version:
On the player
1. Go to the Main Menu
2. Select Settings
3. Select Info
4. Check the firmware version, if it says
v1 it is a version 1
( or Rhapsody
Rhapsody also supports Rhapsody service and channels
USB mode is Rhapsody/PlaysForSure instead of MSC/MTP for
the normal v1
Rhapsody fonts are smooth, antialiased )
v3 it is a version 2

Having a version 2 player, songs can be deleted on the player itself:
1. In playback mode, press submenu.
2. Select the Delete Song item.

For all versions you can delete songs:
1. Making a connection to a computer first.
2. Use the Windows explorer on the computer:
Select "My Computer" on the desktop and go to the internal memory or expansion card of the e250:
Go into the MUSIC folder. Select your songs inside the MUSIC folder and select delete.

Can"t delete 115 songs from my sons Disney Mixmax PLEASE HELP????

Is there a card in the SD card slot? If so, check that the songs are not on the card instead of the unit. Just remove it and see if they are still there. If so, check when in media player if there is more than one device listed. With mine, it will list the device twice, usually one is reading the internal memory and the other one is reading the SD card. Make sure to check both.

Messed up songs

Whatever you do, don't delete the whole folder - it will permanently mess up your GoGear. Here's what I would do: run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager OR update the firmware on the player if it won't let you do the repair - the reason that I am suggesting this is that it will delete all of the music files off your GoGear so that you can start over from scratch, as a side effect. Once everything is deleted, change the Rip format in Windows Media Player to Mp3 - it will not give you special options like read-only, etc. Then, re-rip the CD's and load the mp3 files onto the GoGear.

Good luck!

I cant delete songs off of my mp3 player

did you try going into (if you have a windows pc) My Computer, and navigating to where your player is (your player should be hooked up to your pc via a usb cord - the one that came with your player). your player could be in a removable disk - mine is (J:), or it could be under Other (all of this is still in My Computer). Click on different removable disks if you have to, until you find the one that has your player. Once you have found your player, double click to go inside it. Inside of your player should be a list of folders. One of them should be named Music. It could also have a Playlists folder, an Audible folder, or a Pictures folder, etc. Click on the Music folder. You should see a folder of all of your songs, OR you will see your song files. Select the ones you want to delete, right click and select Delete, or drag the files to your recycle bin. Hope this helps!

Memory Card is stupid

If it is a SD/MMC card, the usual for mp3 players, you will sometimes need to manage files differently. The memory card is sometimes listed as a separate removable drive in "My Computer" or find it in the device manager. I would suggest looking at the instructions, but you could try copying the files to a folder if you have been trying the drag and dump into the root directory.
