I accidentally deleted the PICTURES file on my Sony nwze340 mp3 player!

There is a way to you may get back those deleted picture files from your MP3 MP, BUT it is just possible. Because if those deleted files has been overwritten by new files you saved in, then there is no hope. However usually overwritten cases are hard to happen as long as your MP3 has enough volume.

Then, take so called data recovery program to handle the issue and see if you can grab some or all of the deleted files back. Have a try of Wondershare Photo Recovery. with both Windows and Mac versions provided.

If you are running Windows, go to video photo recovery program.
If you are using Mac OS X, turn to Mac photo video recover software.

You should take care - before your files are recovered, do not save more files to your MP3 in case overwritten situation will happen.

This is my final cry: My mp3 sansa wont turn on, i made the mistake of dropping it a week ago and it wont turn on. Ive tried the reset the method(15-30secs) but it doesnt work...... at all. it wont turn...

You could try the Updater program and see if you can un-brick the chip. Go to the SanDisk site and download the Updater program, follow all instructions. That is the only thing that might work, as it may have broken an internal circuit.

I have this player and it drives me crazy, too.

I don't know if this will help delete what you don't want but plug the sandisk into your computer and open to view the contents. when you see the list of folders, at the top click on tools--then folder options--then view make sure "show hidden files and folders" is checked. click ok. then if you can see the folder you want to delete, highlight it and press the delete key on your keyboard. (if you want to save it, copy it to your hard drive instead). to put on a cd this may be a roundabout way but is fairly simple. put the cd in the computer, using windows media player rip it and save songs in a folder on the hard drive. save as mp3 (or wma should work, too.) you can read on the net how to do this. once the songs are in the folder, close media play. go to the folder and the hard drive and copy it to the sandisk . you can see on your computer if it is there. unplug from the computer and hopefully you can find it and play the songs. good luck!

Bad track error. songs arent deleting after reformatting and resetting multiple amounts of times.

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

Deleting recording


Connect the Zen visiopn to your system.

The computer will detect & open the Creative media source.

This will show all your files in the menu.

Select the ones which you dont want & delte the from the player.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Sansa is acting weird....

Well, you need to return it for a new one. If it has happened in so many few weeks, you need to. It sounds like you may have downloaded a virus. you are going to reboot it and or restart it, you have tried this so it sounds like it is just messed up. exchange it or send it in to get it reset. It will run you about $35. Thanks, Connie
