I have a Sansa e250 and I want to take off some 'Bad Tracks'. There is just a few. When i plug it into the computer, and go into it's file on Windows Media Player, it dosen't show these Bad Tracks. So how do I delete them without formatting the whole thing?
Also, I went to charge the same Sansa, and I left it be for a few hours and I listened to it and it wasn't fully charged. In fact, it didn't have much green on the little battery icon. So then, I went to charge it again, only to find that the Autoplay box didn't pop up on the computer screen. And the charging battery icon didn't show up on Sansa. At the bottom, when Sansa was connected, the battery icon was full and green. I disconnected it and it went red and only a quarter battery was showing. How do I fix these probs? Thanks to whomever can fix these or me.

Re: 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!

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.
The songs are in the wrong format or have expired licenses
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
Two possible methods:
Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx
I'm not sure if this will work all of the time, or if it is the only way to do it so please excuse me if I'm wrong or if it doesn't work.
What I did was purged my device of all songs by going to "My Computer" and I clicked my device. I went to "MUSIC" and deleted everything. I Then switched to "MSC" as the USB Mode. I plugged it in my computer and then disconnected it so that it would restart. When it does it should say "Refreshing Database". When it was finished all the "Bad Tracks" were gone.
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.
