I have a Sansa M240 mp3 player. My son gave me this player and put some songs on it; I want to delete them, but they do not show up on the computer when I connect the player. I have already transferred songs of my own & those show up okay and I can delete them if I want. No matter what I do, though, even through Windows Explorer, it does not show all the songs. But when I use the player, those songs (the ones that were put on before I got the player) are there & play, but I cannot delete them.
The Sansa M200 series devices do not allow deletion of downloaded content directly from the device. You must connect he device to PC/Mac via USB to delete downloaded content. You will also need to use media software such as Windows Media Player, Rhapsody, iTunes, etc.. to see all of the music content on the player to be able to delete the songs you don't want. (i.e. just viewing the device in Windows Explorer might not show everything that is on he player.)

heres what you can do;
once plugged into computer, click on "my computer" icon.
Find the sandisk sansa product, and look through all the music files,
once found the files, delete any of the files as you wish
if that dosent work, im afriad that your going have to delete everything and start fresh again.
Oh lol this is easy. just go onto realplayer or something then go on the tab burn/transfer then it will tell u your songs delete them all. then try turning your mp3 on and going to "settings" then go all the way to the bottom of that page then click "reset all" then go back to windows media player and put your songs on.
Go to Windows Media Player under the Sync tab, over on the far left should be the name of the player, click on it and find the name of the song by album title, artist, or whatever, click on the title and click delete and you should be able to delete any song you like without deleting them all
You need to connect it to a PC then it should show up as a removable storage device.
You may then delete or copy tracks to is like any disk drive.
If you are unsure how to do this then please comment.
Hope this helps, plese rate my answer as better than thanks for trying.
The sansa has two USB modes. If you load tracks in one mode you have to be in the same mode to see them in explorer and also be able to delete them. Took me ages to figure this out. From the main menu, go to Settings then select USB and toggle between "MSC" and "Auto Detect". You should then be able to see the hidden tracks. I have firmware 2.2.5A installed so you might want to check that too.
I now only use the Sansa in MSC mode as it seems to crash Winamp if I use it in Autodetect.
