Deleting a track

Hi, I have just got a sansa e260 and wanted to delete everything on it, as it kept freezing. I went into My Computer whilst in both USB modes and was able to delete almost everything, but there is one track left. As a folder its title is '-' and on the player that title is track 8. It won't play it as it says that it's a bad track and skips to the next song, but I'd like to get rid of it before it freezes the whole machine again. Any other was to delete I don't know about?

When on click on my sansa e260 in Rhapsody I see

Try the following method to see what is on your Sansa e260

Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.

If you want to delete some or all of the files do the following:
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Bad tracks error message

Try deleting them through the windows explorer folders. Using windows xp you'll get a pop up when the device is recognized on your computer. Click the windows explorer option, then find your sansa in "my computer" If deleting them there doesn't work then I don't know, I'm having some issues with this too. Good luck.

What to do

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:

When it comes to deleting songs, I went on the program I use to get my music on and clicked on the sansa 260 and found my playlist. I bet if you connect your sansa and look around that program, you could probably find your playlist and start deleting.

My mp3 player...

You may have to find the reset button on your player and try that. You can also format the drive if plugged in to a computer. The device will show up as a new drive. Go to My Computer and look for the new drive, right click it and click Format. You want to format it but not with NTFS. That will erase everything including games.

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
