The whole thing is actin up im about to cry

Ok, so my E250 decided to act a fool. First, i trid to remove all the music files so i can add new ones, now it will not let me add any from my window media player. Every time i attempt the songs read error and refuse to upload. Secondly it will not charge. It has been on the charger for a day and only the black sandisk screen will appear, and doesnt change so i doubt its being charged. When i leave it alone then try to turn it back on it says battery is too low.ALso when i try to sync songs it will disconnect itself from windows edia player altho the USB is still plugged in. Im distraught Ive only had it for 7 months and i NEED my Mp3. Please Email me @ when you have an answer that woudl be greatly appreciated *Kat

Re: the whole thing is actin up im about to cry

Kat, You have a few issues, but they are easily resolved. Battery - the battery inside has come loose from the contacts. You will need to remove and re-seat the battery to allow it to charge / function. Not able to transfer files - sounds like your device may be full or close to it. Best solution would be to format the device to remove all the music and start over. With the device connected, go to My Computer, right click on the device name (e250) and select FORMAT. Just click start and ok, to the delete all music prompt. If you are not able to format, change the mode on the device Settings>mode or USB Mode and try again. If you have more questions, just add to this one. Best of Luck.

How do i delete songs off of my sansa e250?

You can manually delete the music thru My Computer. Just click on the device name, and open the Music folder. If you dont have a Music folder, you need to enable hidden files and folders on your computer. Best of Luck.

My sansa wont work HELP PLZ

Ok, I have a Sansa e250 2.0 BG. I have an extra memory card but w/e thats not part of the problem. So, when I downloaded music, I accidently put more music on the Sansa memory and it made it too full. So now it has to do a system restart everytime I turn it on. Which is really annoying. And then I tried to delete some music so It would stop doing that and I could update it, But it shows up on my computer as there being no music. So theres nothing to delete! But it says the memory is full! HELP!!!!

Deleting files from Sansa e250

The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD: 1. Set the e250 to MSC mode. 2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector. 3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.) To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
