Sansa won't move

I was listening to my e250 when it showed a bad track message. Now, it won't do anything. I couldn't go to the next song, bring up the menu, turn it off..anything. What's up with it?

Reset the player by holding menu for 15-20 seconds. Then don't play that song again or it will freeze again. Also I am haveing a problem with music data base it says I need to free 6 GB so if anyone could help.

Try reloading the firmware. If the Sansa Updater says that you have the lastest firmware download the firmware manually and then run the software. In addition, tech support is fantastic with Sansa give them a call or e-mail. Best Regards, Keith

Sansa E 250 bad track

On your e250, go to the "Settings" menu, select "USB Mode", and set it to "MSC". Then connect your e250 to your computer. It show up under My Computer as a "removable disk". Right click on it and select "Format". Click on the "Start" button, making sure that Quick Format is NOT checked. Wait for the formatting to complete, unplug your e250, wait for it to reboot (or force it to reboot if necessary), plug it back in, and copy your songs back onto it.

Bad track and Battery

Make sure the hold switch is not engaged.
Remove the songs from the player and then reload them. If they are froma subscription service, make sure they do not have fixed-term licenses on them. Right-click song --> Properties --> digital rights or media usage rights
Use Windows Media Player to view the songs that are stored on your mp3 player - best to view them in the "Sync" tab. Find the song that you want to delete, right-click the song, and select Delete (or left-click and press Delete on your keyboard). Voila!

I could listen to some songs

Prob need to format the player
1. put player in msc mode (settings menu under USB)

2. go to my computer and rightclick on sansa

3. format box: choose quick format

4. format complete, allow player to stay connected to computer for 10 mins

go to and under downloads, download the updater to keep this from happening again, put the updater on your computer so each time you plug it in, it will look for updates

make sure you do not put questionable files on the player such as itunes or mp4, as they will "bad track"
