This is one way to do it:
My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

    Go into the Settings Menu of the Sansa, change the USB Mode from MSC to MTP, or vice versa, and then plug the mp3 player back into the computer again - see if the hidden songs show up.



    If the songs still won't show up, connect the mp3 player to the computer, double-click My Computer, and double-click the icon of the Sansa. Select Tools --> Folder Options --> View --> Check the box that says "Show Hidden Files and Folders." The main Music folder may be empty, but there is another folder that you can click that will have a second Music folder. Go into that second Music folder and see if the songs that you want to delete are in that folder. Right click a song that you want to delete and select "Delete"



    If all else fails, you can use a drastic measure- you can use the Format function in the Sansa's menu to erase EVERY song. Once those samples are erased, you can then reload the songs you want onto the player.



    There are really a lot of ways to delete the songs you don't want.

How do i record over existing recordings


Instead of trying to record over existing recordings remove them.

Deleting Files,Pictures,etc from MP3 Player

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.
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

Am unable delete song...they do not show up on my computer either


I have a dffierent mp3 player Colby with a usb and I had the same problem. Try deleting the songs from the device itself. If you go into folder view if you havet hat option and choose the song it says to play or delet, at least that is what mine says. It may take awhile to do it one song at a time, but you should have the option of deleting the songs from the actual mp3 player.

I also had minenot show up, mine was do to deleting some of the software off of the player to make more room for songs. I never used podcasts and other files that came on it, so after I deleted them my songs stopped showing up. I just copy the songs to my mp3 player now, and delete them one by one. Hope this helps you.

Hi,
There are two ways to delete files on your Sansa player.  You can delete them from the player directly or using a PC. 

METHOD 1 - Delete files directly on the device 
1. In playback mode, press the Submenu button. 
2. Select Delete

METHOD 2 - Delete files using a PC 
1. Connect your device to the PC. 
2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial connection. 
3. Locate the folder where your files are stored. 
4. Click to select the files you want deleted and delete the files.
NOTE: If songs still exist after deleting, you may need to switch USB modes from MTP to MSC or vice versa. Seeanswer ID 447 for more details. 

Rock....!!!

Current files on gogear mp3 cant be replaced.


The HDD6330 doesn't respond well to Windows Media Player 11 - I know it's a pain, but you may have to rollback to Windows Media Player 10 to get it to display correctly (don't worry - you will not lose your existing files by doing so).

All my songs got deleted while i tried to add more


I've run across this as well and it's actually a setting in Windows Media Player. The only way I've found to correct it (since I couldn't find it in the advanced options) was to start Windows Media Player and go to the sync page. Then connect the player to the computer. When Media Player recognizes the device it will pop up a screen (make sure you're in the sync page first) that says Windows Media Player - Device Setup. There will be two options, 1 to leave existing files and sync to remaining space and 2 to delete files before sync. Choose the first option to leave existing files and then click next and then finish. You should be able to sync new songs to the player now without it deleting the existing songs that are already on there.

Pre-Loaded Songs


I realize this post is very old, so I'm commenting for posterity's sake. I don't have this particular model, but I had the same problem with my MMP8568. I couldn't delete pre-loaded tracks from WMP or manually from My Computer. The only thing that worked for me was reformatting my device and deleting everything off of it and starting over.

Basically, I went to My Computer and right-clicked on the icon corresponding to my MP3 player. I selected Format from the options and it deleted everything, from my own songs that I loaded to the pre-loaded content. Then, I resynched my music.

I tried EVERYTHING, and this was the only method that worked for me. :/

Deleting downloaded songs


The users guide is on the CD that came with it, otherwise you can download it from here;

http://sandisk.com/sansa/assets/English/products/e200/e200_userguide_en.pdf

As for deleting the pre-loaded songs, you can manually delete them from the device while its connected to the PC. Go to My Computer>Device Name (e250)>Music Folder then just right click and delete on the items you do not want.




Best of Luck.
