Re: I cant access the files on my Sansa from my pc

There is no "proprietery" software for this mp3 player; what you see inside the folders is what is in residence in memory. It's possible the songs are in wma format and not mp3. For some very strange reason wma files do NOT show up in the music folders. Check the manual for deleting files from the player- there are several sub menu's to go through, and eventually all songs appear, including wma and mp3.

Re: I cant access the files on my Sansa from my pc

You may need some sort of proprietary software to 'see' the portion of the drive with your music. It might also be that the drive is formatted ina format not compatible with the operating system you are using. What OS are you using? Have you put music on the player in the past?

Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.

I can't get videos off my player!

How it up to the computer with the usb cord, once it shows connected go to (depending on the operating system)

Vista or XP
Double click: Sansa
Double click: Internal Memory

Double click on the file; example video, the file will open and you will see all the video saved in the file; right click on the video(s) and click delete. File will be gone.


Any other problems let me know.

Used memory i never used

With most MP3 players, some of the memory is used for system files and software. Just delete all the things you done use (i.e. pictures, playlists, Rhapsody Channels) and whatever space you have free is what you have to work with.

If you want more memory, I highly suggest a microSD card
