Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sansa mp3 player 8gb won't play my songs. ("bad track" is what it says)

The first about 20 songs on my mp3 player work... but the rest don't. I choose a song, and all i see is "bad track" it flashes in a red box. I've already tried to take all the songs off, then put them back on. But that doesn't seem to work. It worked once, but then I added more songs and it went right back to the whole "bad track" screen. Its frustrating!!!please if anybody has had this problem please give me some answers. Thanks!

You mean it hangs up at pause mode and you can't turn off you device? if so, push up/press power button and hold for 10 to 20 seconds until the device turn off.
Then, turn on. if it' working. You should update new firmware.

Some of my songs play but the new ones say "bad track"

Make sure the files are all compatible with the device (probably Mp3 in this case). Check your instruction manual to find out which files will work on the device. Also, try testing the songs on Windows Media Player. If an error message comes up, the mp3 might be corrupt or has an attachment that makes it not able to play.

Bad track

That means that somewhere in your music collection is a song with bad formatted ID3 tags. You can download an ID3 tag tool like MusicBrainz Picard to go through your songs and determine which tracks might be bad.
