Sansa I have a sandisk model 230 with 512mb. I've tried to delete all files and start ove but I can't do so because Windows Media Player cannot delete the playlist because it contains items that are not digital media files. Any digital media files in the playlist were deleted. I still have about 100 songs i can not delete from my device. I'm not sure what to do. please help thanks.

You can format the device thru My Computer. Right click on the device in My Computer and select Format. This will remove all the media on the device. Best of Luck.

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

Delete songs


Your SanDisk Sansa Player does not allow you to delete files from within the player (But the recorded files can be deleted at the player). Instead I recommend that you follow these steps :

When your player is connected to your computer with the USB connector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files on your player. Your player will appear as Sansa m240. Follow these steps:

1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer.

2. Delete your music files to the player with software tools like Rhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client.

3. To use the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client software to delete files to your player please refer to the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client help file.

NOTE: While you can store and organize your audio files on your player using folders with names you select, your player will ignore folders and names. Instead, your Sansa player will extract information from each audio file so that you can use the software menu to navigate your files by artist, album title, song title, and other useful criteria.

hope it helps.
Have a nice day!

Sansa m250, can not see the files nor delete them


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the SanDisk website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

Problems deleting songs with the help of Media Player...


The manual is fraught with errors on the deleting music page - including the fact that it references p.24, when the answer is on p.23 - but it suggests that you can only delete songs from the player itself or from Windows Explorer:
Delete Song
1. In playback mode, press submenu.
2. Select the Delete Song item.

or p.32 for delteing from Windows Explorer

I can think of at least 2 other reasons why you are not able to delete the songs as normal in Windows Media Player:
The hold or lock switch is engaged on the Sansa


The following is an EXTREME solution that I would not reccomend:
try this fix from Microsoft themselves (it is very lengthy - too long to reproduce in full here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925718/en-us

Short version:
To resolve this problem, clear the Windows Media Player database. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Exit Windows Media Player. 2. For Windows XP:

Click Start, click Run, type %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK.

For Windows Vista:

Click Start, click Run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK. 3. Select all the files in the folder, and then click Delete on the File menu.

Note You do not have to delete the folders that are in this folder. 4. Restart Windows Media Player.

Note Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.
