Deleting songs.

Your DB might be corrupt. Folow the delete procedure one more time:
Delete Music Files
1) Connect your Sansa to the computer.
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
3) Select the place where you want to delete music files from
4) Highlight and delete the music file/s or folder from My Computer\Sansa
folder. (You can also select from a variety of music
software programs to transfer/synchronize your files).

If that fails, go ahead and update the firmware - it will delete everything, and allow you to start over from scratch among other things.

Sansa e250 not working properly

The songs you are trying to use are in the wrong format, or have expired licenses - use mp3 format only and you won't have those problems

Bad Tracks

For the bad tracks go Under Settings, look for Mode or USB Mode. Put the unit in MSC (if that's available) or Rhapsody.

Connect it to the computer. See what driveletter it is :F: Sansa E280...G: Sansa E280... whatever it is.

Click Start/Run and type in chkdsk F:/f (or G: or whatever the letter is) . That will check and may fix the bad files.

I hope that helps

Bad track thats not bad

There are several possibilities here. Right click one of the songs that is no longer showing, and click "Properties", and then click the "License" or "Digital Rights" tab. Look at the details of the license - does it say that it is only good for such and such a date? If you were using a trial version of a music service, has that music service's subscription now expired? If the license is expired, the songs will go bad. Only soultion, if this is the case, is to renew your music service subscription.

Try updating the firmware on the player by going to Sansa's website.

After that, reformat the player in Windows Media Player and reload the songs.

Good luck.

Bad track thats not really bad

2 possible reasons why this is.

a. there is a bad file locking ure songs on the mp3 player (in this case, reformat the mp3 player)

b. mp3 player cant read internal memory (in this case, you probably dropped it, and for some reason a pin lifted off the circuit board):D screwed

WAV files don't playback and show as "BadTracks"

well, probably because where you downloaded it from, the website had an error. To put music on, just go on MY COMPUTER, find your sansa mp3 in it, go to your music, copy a song, go back to the sansa list and hit paste.

Deleting songs.

Isn't it that you just go to my computer and delete it there?
It says to delete it entirely from it.

Go to the Sandisk website. After that, look up your mp3 player model. Hit Ctrl+F and look for firmware. Follow the instructions. It worked for me.
