Re: bad track

This happened to me yesterday. There were about 40 bad tracks out of nowhere. I viewed the files throught the PC, and there were many corrupt files in the Music Folder. After hours of trying to delete them to no avail, I had to use the Recovery Tool and Firmware Updater from the Sandisk website to patch my e250 with the previous firmware version. This was the only thing that work, since none of the Bad Songs would delete and there were many strange files on the player.

"Bad Track" Messages on e260

You have songs that may be protected or the wrong format for your device.
delete the bad song and download another copy from a different source and try it.
This is not to uncommon due to different file formats and protection in the song files
When you rip songs from another device often some won't load or play in another device
especially if they are paid for songs.

Sync Notice

This usually indicates that the content you are trying to listen to has digital rights associated with the media. This woud normally be the case if the content was downloaded via a subscrition service such as Napster or Rapsody, which means you are basically "renting" the song instead of buying it. In order to validate that the subscription for that media is still valid (i.e. you have paid for the subscription) you must sync the device with the service on a periodic basis. For example, with NapsterToGo you must sync a device at least every 30 days to validate the subscription.

Bad track

To delete songs from your device follow the steps below
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync panel in your windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
To format it..on your device..go, setting and there should be a format option option there..let me know if that doenst work for you...
Hope this helps

P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

Songs that i sync from limewire dont work

What mode do you have your device under? limewire tracks shouldnt say bad tracks because they dont have DRM license install in them...i would recommend to delete evrything from that device and try again....

Keeps displying "bad track"

I had the same exact problem. When i called them they said that becuase these songs were not properly put on the device it will not work. What he meant by properly is that you cant just copy and paste all your music. This may ork for some of your music but will not work for most. And he also said that if the music has been gotten wrong meaning, if you didn't rip from a cd, and you just copied and pasted.

Bad tracks won't delete

Have you tried updating the firmware. Even if it is the lastest edition, download the firmware manually and run the software. Then format in Windows Media player. Best Regards Keith
