Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

Can't delete songs that don't play

My device shows that I have a certain amount of songs but only plays half of them. When I try to delete them on the given software, only the songs that do play show up. So I can never delete the songs that don't play.

    This Sansa e280 is really starting to **** me off!

    mine is actually similar--the player will play all of my songs but when connected to the computer, only a few of the songs show up. I can't delete directly from the player (unless there is a way that I can't figure out) and can't delete from win media player.

    my problem is similar--the player shows & will play all of my songs but when connected to the computer, only a handful of songs show up. I want to delete some songs but can't do it directly from the player (unless there is a way that I can't find) and can't delete from win media player.

Run the Sansa Recovery Tool and just start over from scratch. Only use songs that are in mp3 format if you don't want grief later.

It stops playing certain song after a few seconds


I am glad to HELP YOU!

If your machine, using a multimedia application, it stops suddenly to play a CERTAIN song ["it stops playing certain song after a few seconds"] that means the file [the song, I mean] is broken/damaged/corrupted. So - using other words - cannot be read by the application itself.
All you need to do is to get another file [the same song but from a DIFFERENT SOURCE] hoping the new file will be in good condition.


My best regards!

Shows a certain amount of songs on player but skips songs and doesnt play them, for example plays song number one then goes to song number three.


Hi,

Often this is indicative that the "filing system" and the "table of contents" of the digital media player is being messed up. Technically, this would refer to corrupted files. In most instances, this could be corrected by formatting the player. This of course would mean that a fresh "filing system" and "table of contents" would be written on the device. But then, this also means that all its contents would be erased.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Either the DB is corrupt of the license on the songs expired - make sure the music service is completely up to date. If it is, then go to RCA's website and get the latest firmware update.

Me, again... ^^v;


I would delete and start all over again. It is certainly a pain, but it is the best way. The quickest way to delete all the songs is to format the player inside Windows Media Player itself (I have a tips and tricks entry on formatting an mp3 player for instructions).

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?


You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

Will not play all songs


Make sure the songs are in the correct format. Make sure the songs are not AAC, WAV, streaming, or some other non-supported format

Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.

Playing songs that won't play and deleting songs I don't want.


when you synch your device to windows media player 11 on the side bar under the name of your device says songs click on it then find the songs you don't want right click and delete as for the songs that won't play i'd say it's probably because it doesn't support the format of the music
