I accidentaly sinc music to my sansa e250 from windows media player and it wont come off!!!

Mp3 files can be loaded using either WMP or Windows file manager (Explorer) but a different USB setting is required by each. WMP uses the MTP setting while Explorer uses MSC. If you used the wrong setting this may have caused your problem. Also for some reason MP3 files loaded using a file manager will not appear when trying to view them using WMP. To solve the issue I used the MSC setting to view all of my MP3's using file manager. I then deleted the ones I had recently added, changed the setting back to MTP and reloaded them using WMP. Worked like a charm. Hope that helps.

My sansa wont work HELP PLZ

Ok, I have a Sansa e250 2.0 BG. I have an extra memory card but w/e thats not part of the problem. So, when I downloaded music, I accidently put more music on the Sansa memory and it made it too full. So now it has to do a system restart everytime I turn it on. Which is really annoying. And then I tried to delete some music so It would stop doing that and I could update it, But it shows up on my computer as there being no music. So theres nothing to delete! But it says the memory is full! HELP!!!!
