Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Deleting songs. I got this for christmas and i tried deleting the music it came with.  It deleted them but it still on my mp3 player. and i have songs that are ''bad tracks'' and they wont delete either. the bad tracks are also not bad tracks. so that means that i have the same songs that arent bad tracks. I download songs lately, deleted songs from my old playlist both on the Rhapsody as well as my computer. I have loads of "Bad Tracks" that I've deleted. How do I get rid of them? My sansa locked up today on one of the "Bad Tracks". How do I get rid of the tracks I've deleted? Also, on Rhapsody the songs on the device only show the song title. The artist, album and genre do not show up. Any clue? This just started happening.

    My player has been stuck on a bad track 4 ever. I am unable to advance to another track or make changes with the device connected to the computer. I also have issues with deleting songs from the device and when i try to put new music on the device I get the "already on device" in my play list, but the songs are not there when i search and try to play them. HELP i need my music.

Your DB might be corrupt. Folow the delete procedure one more time:
Delete Music Files
1) Connect your Sansa to the computer.
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
connection.
3) Select the place where you want to delete music files from
4) Highlight and delete the music file/s or folder from My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\MUSIC
folder. (You can also select from a variety of music
software programs to transfer/synchronize your files).

If that fails, go ahead and update the firmware - it will delete everything, and allow you to start over from scratch among other things.

Deleting files


You have to plug the mp3 player into the computer, double-click My Computer, double click on the icon of the GoGear, and then go into the Music folder - exercise caution: only delete music files - if you delete files that are non-music files, you will effectively destroy your GoGear.

Windows Media Player is more complex, but it is a safer way to delete songs:
