Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player
A few days ago while I was using my sansa e280 to listen to music, a sudden seemingly random problem occurred. Almost every song that I uploaded myself onto the player came up with a "bad track" error when I tried to play them. On top of this, when I went into the Play All screen, the sansa completely froze. After letting the battery drain, I plugged the sansa into the computer to try to solve the problem. My original intention was to try to delete all uploaded files on the sansa and then upload them in again. However, here the biggest problem showed up. After I deleted all the music in the "My files" folder, which is all the music I uploaded into the player, the My files folder remained and, within itself, created an infinite loop of My files folders along with 3 other oddly named folders. My guess is that these ghost folders were created through a malfunction with the device. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to fix this problem. I would appreciate any help I can receive on this issue. Thank you.
You need to reinstall the firmware, which can be found on Sansa's site. If this is not an option, which it likely is NOT, you need to send the device out via the MFG warranty, or just send it to the MFG. If you look into the files on this device, it has a VERY VERY bad history with performance on this site. I hope this helps! problem solved!
