Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player
My Sansa E280 is frozen with a red "Bad Track" error msg on its screen. I am unable to power it down, navigate to any screen, or connect it to my computer. It doesnt even go into sleep mode. How can I do the recover mode if it wont even power down? I was trying to remove some .wma files that were not showing album titles. I deleted the files using Windows Media. That excercise hung up my PC. Then I converted 2 albums to MP3, tried to copy them to the sansa drive, and those albums did not show up on the device, even though they showed up in the windows explorer folders view of the device drive. Please help. I am on a PC Win XP, using WMP 11. Any advice on editing and retaining album titles would be greatly appreciated. The titles appear when viewing them via windows explorer, but on the device they are all unknown album, making it impossible to differentiate the songs/albums. What gives!?! Even the converted MP3 albums arent visable.
I had a crash with no error message and as suggested held off button down for 20s or so and now it seems fine.Thankyou Iferris.

The easiest way to stop this process it to open the back and remove the battery. I had this trouble as well and once I removed the battery and then replaced it, the problem went away.

You may need to hold down the button for up to 30 seconds in order for your MP3 player to turn off.
