Question about SanDisk Sansa m250 MP3 Player

It won't let me delete songs

My sandisk won't let me delete some of the songs. I was first having a problem getting my computer to recognize it, so I put it in MSC mode. That let me add some songs. Then I wanted to delete some old songs, but it would only show the ones added in MSC mode. When I switch back to auto detect the computer won't recognize the device so I can't delete the files. Can anyone help me?

    I don't know if this is the same problem.
    I've had this MP3 player for years, and haven't changed the music on it in a long time. I have since upgraded (?) to a Vista computer, and now when I use this, a) I can't open the CD it came with (only works with XP) and b) the weird part -- I can't see or edit any of the music that is already on it. I have a small amount of space free, so I can put on a few songs at a time. But everything that was there before just doesn't show up anywhere. WMP shows that the device is mostly full but there are no tracks showing ANYWHERE, either through WMP or just looking at what's on the device directly. Anyone else had this and come up with anything?

    I should clarify that the solution offered doesn't work with mine -- the songs are not shown anywhere on the device, no matter how I get to the contents.

  1. We Too had a hard time deleting a song but found the solution..... Put the mp3 play in the MSC mode through the settings do not put in auto.....when your computer prompts that the music player is connected it will have a screen that asks play music, open folder to veiw files..... or take no action... you neew to click on the open folder to veiw files..... when this screen loads find the song or songs that you want to delete right click and then delete it will only delete from the mp3 player.....took me two days of pissing with this mp3 player to figure it out......

Trying to delete songs off my Sandisk mp3 player. And it is all plugged in. I am using Windows Media Player 11.

You will not be able to delete songs via the WMP. Click on your start button (Windows Logo) and then click on "computer", and then you should see your player listed there if your computer is recognizing it. If not, unplug the device and plug it back in. Then you can double click on the device to get to the device memory and you can delete songs from the media folder, usually named "Music".

Bad tracks error message

Try deleting them through the windows explorer folders. Using windows xp you'll get a pop up when the device is recognized on your computer. Click the windows explorer option, then find your sansa in "my computer" If deleting them there doesn't work then I don't know, I'm having some issues with this too. Good luck.

Randomly deleted songs and cannot upload more

Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sandisk's website to be on the safe side, but I'm thinking that your song licenses expired. Convert all of your songs to mp3 format, and you will not have these kinds of problems.
