    thank you very much for your help yesterday, the reason why I rated it almost there is because when I go into the control panel to check whether the files have been deleted its still showing 67'548 temporary internet files, 36k offline files, 32k web client/publisher temporary filesand 54'612 compressed old files which have not been deleted. I followed your instructions and thats why I rated it almost there because it seems the information has not been deleted. The other information regarding changing from FAT to NTFS has been a success so thank you. Please don't be dis-heartened, my computer (I hope) isn't different to anyone elses, thats why I've asked for your help as you are the expert. Again thank you.

Funny you should rate my last solution post, almost there, yet you cleaned the temp files, surely thats problem solved??, along with instructions to convert to ntfs You should find the backup programme on accessories>system tools> backup. If it's not there then you have to get hold of an XP cd and look in the 1386 folder, open NTBACKUP folder and run the installation.

    i thank you for taking the time to reply, as it's frustrating not to know how far the solution progressed as many posterd don't inform, but just post thx for trying or worse.

    if you downloaded ccleaner it's really good, that should have cleared any unneccasary temp files.

    you should be able to clear any old compressed files, unless there is a system fault that cannot clear it as i have with 2 of mine, the web client cannot be deleted as thats required for the web, offline files and temp should have cleared.

Hi, i've got a problem. I can't store a movie on

Hello. :)
Your pen is probably formatted with the FAT32 filesystem, there is a limit to how big of a file you can copy to it. If the file is over 3.5gb you cant copy it to the pen. What you need to is backup your 300 pictures, copy them to your computers hardrive and then format the USB pen. Follow these steps:
Plug in the usb pen-> Head to "My Computer"->Locate the usb pen->Right click it and hit "Format"->Choose "NTFS" in the "File system" tab->Quick format->Hit start->Done.
Hopes this helps. :)

My computer cant open the file in my e250

1. Plug the sansa into your PC. If Windows does not recognize the clip, unplug it, turn it off, and then put the clip in "hold" mode by placing the on/off switch into the hold position. Hold down the middle button on the Clip while you plug the clip back into your PC. It should recognize it.

2. From "My Computer", find the sansa icon and choose format. Note: this will delete all your music files on the device...

3. Download the firmware updater for the sansa

4. Follow the instructions to update your firmware.

5. If you need additional assistance try calling Sandisk's tech support:
1-866-SANDISK (726-3475)
