I have been trying to erase the mp3 files that I have on my T9, but neither SMS 5 or windows explorer see any files on the device. They are obviously there, I can listen to them and all of my other media files (pics, vids, txt) are there also.
I can add new mp3 files and both SMS 5 and windows explorer will see those...how do I get rid of the old files I don't want anymore?? Can I format (safely) the device from windows explorer?
Yes you can !! Download the firmware of your T9 from here. By installing the firmware, it automatically formats the t9 and reinstalls everything like it was new !

1. Turn on and connect your Sandisk MP3 player to the computer using the USB connection cable. 2. Select "Open folder/device to view files" when prompted by Windows Explorer. You can also look for the Sandisk MP3 player under "My Computer." 3. Navigate to the folder on your device where your songs are stored. 4. Select the files (songs) you want to delete and press the "Delete" key. 5. Exit from the window, then disconnect the USB cable from the Sansa MP3 player. The player will automatically turn off. The memory will update the first time you turn the player on after deleting songs.
Try to erase files in windows explorer, your player should be visible when you click on "My computer". Just find "media" subfolder in it and find duplicated songs. If this won't work you can try to erase duplicated files with winamp, but you need version 5.5 or later for this. Find "portable" section in winamp media library and you should see samsung k3 in this section. Then just find duplicated file, right click on it and choose "remove from device". Hope this can help.
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.
Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced. 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: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp If these fail, then: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version). You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

I dont't knw napper, but widows media player is not compatible with samsung gadgets, so when you transfer files you only can carrying it on. try transfere files via SAMSUNG MEDIA STUDIO 5 (software include with the device) that automatically recognize the gadget firmware and convert files when transfere.
The Insignia NS-DA2G needs to be placed in File & Folder mode, and you'll need to have your mac show you all files on the device. Macs will create a smaller file that starts with "._" that contain very little information, but can cause problems with Windows based or Windows preferred devices. These files are not ignored by the PC or certain Windows optomized devices. You should erase these files for the unit to perform normally.
If you are unable to delete these files, you can re-format the device to FAT-32 and that will erase all information on the device. You shouls also hit the reset button (located next to the "HOLD" switch) for about 5-10 seconds to clear the internal settings.
