Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player
I will delete the songs from my e200 from my computer in MTP mode, but then they will still show up on my e200 but as bad tracks...how do i get rid of these, is there a way to reformat or restart the whole program so it's all clean?
I can't delete all the music off my sansa e200 (8gb) player. I want to put it back to original factory settings, but it won't let me, and Ive tried so many times. Any answers would help immensely, and also if they could be simplified as computers and technology are not my strength haha.

Adding to what the "Best solution" said: There is something about the two folders that files are saved into. If you go to settings, then down to USB, there are the Auto Detect and MSC options. If you are having problems switch to the opposite one you are running, then reconnect with your cable to your computer. You will see odd, or incomplete files, that only come up in just the Auto Detect or MSC modes. You have to swith between the two to delete the hidden files.

Okay, I think i know whats wrong,
I put my setting from MSC to MTP and then i went to the song that was apparently a "bad track" and it worked but then when i went to the "shuffle" mode or to the "play all" mode and scrolled through all my songs to find the one that was a "bad track" that song would not work, so im like REALLY confused but i guess that kinda is a solution?

I had this same problem with my Sansa e280, I did some research and found that MTP mode is used when syncing with Windows Media Player. So if you plugged in your player under MTP and simply tried to drag and drop using Windows Explorer the player won't recognize. I have heard that you should be able to view them on the Sync tab in WMP but I personally have not tried.
The way I got rid of the songs was by going into my Sansa Settings and changing the USB mode to MSC, opening the Player by going to My Computer, then (if using Windows XP) click on Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders". Click "OK" Then Right click on the MUSIC Folder and Select "Properties" Uncheck "Read Only" and "Hidden". Unplug your Player and it will restart. Viola, no more ghosted songs.
