Im affraid to answer this question. because i only gain' thanks for trying" but its ok.
In your case , If you want to delete all files in your sansa, maybe you can delete it by formatting your sansa disk. You can find maybe the format on the menu and select format the disk(something like that.) Or you can connect the sansa to the computer and delete all files in there. You can browse your files in the my computer and select the drive created by computer when the sansa is connected.
Your M230 may have encountered a corruption in its Music Database, and may be corrected by formatting and updating the firmware.
Try this: Manually switch the player to MSC mode and format through "Disk Management".
Here are the steps:
Locate the "Hold" switch on the side of the M230 and enable it (you should see an "orange-colored" surface when it's enabled)
Plug the M230 to your computer (recommended Operating System is Windows XP and above) and check Windows Explorer if the player is detected as a "Removable Drive"
Open "Computer Management" by right-clicking on the "My Computer" icon, then selecting "Manage"
Your "Computer Management" window should be divided into 2 panes. On the left pane, click on "Disk Management"
On the upper right pane of "Disk Management", you should find the drive letter corresponding to your Sansa M230. The lower section also contains the drive # pertaining to your M230. Right-click on either drive letters pertaining to the M230 and select "Format". Follow the on-screen prompts. Make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox remains un-checked.
In general, Disk Management is more the effective tool for formatting your M230 and assuming the format processing completed without any errors, proceed to updating the firmware of your player.

Save this file to your Desktop and run it while your M230 is still plugged in to your PC. Follow the on-screen prompts.
"Safely remove" your M230 from your PC and -- with a fresh battery -- power on your player. It should boot up normally.
I hope this works. The M230 is a great player
Your problem is probably beacause you accidently deleted "AudibleActivation.sys" from your "Audible"-folder. Format the sansa and then use "reset to factory settings" to make the file appear again. It might be a good idea to make a backup on your hard drive, just in case, and make the file hidden.
