I have tried plugging it into my PC to charge it and every time I turn it on to delete songs it gives me the above message....& the player shuts down.......What is the fix? Thanks..Joan

There may be a easier solution But plug it into your computer Then, in the go to my computer in your start area.
you should have a removable disk (D:), this is your player.
Right click on the tab and go to Format, click on quick format and then start.
The next window that should pop up will say that it will may erase all the files on the device. That is ok. It will erase all the music you had on there, but that is easy enough to load back on.
Wait for it to finish, unplugg it, turn it on, and you should be good. All you have to do now is reload the music!
But make sure you dont exceed 2gb or you may have to do this again

I have down loaded a bea to delete other songs -also I have one auto book I am not able to delete


What is a 'bea?'

One way to delete songs (and maybe books) easily is to it through your computer, while the Sansa is tethered;

1) Download the Sansa Clip manual. Here's a link;
http://www.sandisk.com/media/327475/CLIP+_UM_0809_ENG+090309.pdf

2) Put your Sansa in MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode.
Go to Settings, then USB Mode. Select MSC mode.

3) Tether the Sansa to your computer. It will look like a USB flash drive.

4) Delete or add Music, or Books.
You can use Windows Explorer to look through the directories on the Sansa, and delete files directly, as you would on a USB Flash drive.

Special Note on Audio Books--
Get an extra memory card, 4 to 8 Gb should do, and use this as your destination for audio books. If you have a book that will not delete, you can pull the card and re-format it, while leaving your songs intact on the main memory.

If you cannot delete the book through the computer or by menus on the Sansa, you may have to re-format your main memory. Hope that helps!
