    I JUST GOT MY MP3 PLAYER FOR CHRISTMAS AND I HAVE DOWNLOADED OVER 300 SONGS. MINE WILL HOLD UP TO 500 SO THAT IS NOT WHAT IM WORRIED ABOUT WHAT WORRIES ME IS THAT I WENT INTO THE COMPUTER TO DELETE THE SONGS THAT CAME WITH IT AND THEN MY OWN THAT I HAD PUT ON MYSELF TO SEE IF STARTING OVER WOULD BE THE SOLUTION BUT I STILL HAVE TRACKS ON MY PLAYER AND THEY ALL SAY BAD TRACK WHEN I TRY TO PLAY THEM. THE ONLY REASON I TRIED TO DELETE EVERYTHING IS BECAUSE I COULDNT USE THE DRAG AND DROP TO PUT MORE SONGS ON MY PAYER SO WHAT IM WONDERING IS IF MAYBE THERE COULD BE A GLITCH IN MY SYSTEM OR MAYBE I COULD HAVE DOWNLOADED A VIRUS ONTO MY PLAYER WHILE DOWNLOADING MY SONGS. I'M SCARED THAT MY PLAYER IS RUINED PLEASE HELP ME.

    THANK YOU CHARLYE DAVENPORT

What you really have to do is: 1: Double click my computer 2:Double click Sansa e250 drive 3: Right click on the icon that looks like a disk drive and click format BE SURE TO HAVE BACKUP OF SONGS BEFORE YOU FORMAT!!!

Go to the System folder and delete PP5000.DAT. This is the database. The player will then rebuild the database without the deleted files.

Connect your sansa to your computer. Now go to my computer, then look for it. It should either show up as a removable drive or as an mp3 player. Make sure it is in msc mode. Do this by going to settings then usb mode and selecting msc(this is on your sansa when it is not connected) Now, click on your sansa,(it may be something like removable disk j)and click on the folder marked music. Now right-click on the artists/ songs you detest, and delete them! I hope this helps. Happy listening.

Well run a virus scan on ur pc and scan the player.. apart from that re-organise the folders n files in the player.. and if ur aware about formatting.. format first and then perform rest of the operations.

If you want to delete EVERY track off the player, then reformat the player in Windows Media Player - it's a shortcut - see my "tips and tricks" on formatting mp3 players

If there are artist, album traces, then you need to click on every subfolder under your device in Windows Media Player and delete every trace that way - tedious, but effective

-Tha Mp3 Doctor
There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

Bad Track and No Files Message


Yeah, I have that "Bad Track" problem for some my tracks or even for entire albums. The only thing I can think of that would cause that is if you skip over the track consistantly. Anyway, the best solution I've found for that is to go to Windows Media Player, delete the track, and then put it back on if you have it backed up on your computer. P.S.: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE SONG BACKED UP ON YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS. If that doesn't work, you should find another way to get the song. Unfortunately, I can't help you with the "No Files" problem since I haven't experienced that.

I did not get the "Swtich to Recovery mode" screen, my screen was stuck on "Bad Track." I formatted the drive (which deleted EVERYTHING), and then i put the songs back on, and it works just fine. Try this, it might help.
