How do you take music off your mp3 player


The Sansa c140 can be operated in MSC and MTP mode for transferring and deleting music files.
See also setting USB mode for autodetect or MSC mode on page 16 of the manual: link to the Sansa c100 series manual.

  • For deleting files a connection to a computer has to be made in either MSC or MTP mode, see page 10 of the manual.

MSC mode means that a computer will see the player as a removable disk when connected.
It's like exploring the computer detecting the player as an external memory, showing up as a drive letter with about 1 GB of memory.
Before disconnecting the player, always safely remove hardware, the icon in the bottom taskbar on the right.

MTP mode means that a computer has software installed like Windows Media Player 10 and in this software, when started, the player is being recognized as Sansa c140.
Before disconnecting the player, wait for the message that it is allowed to disconnect the device.

How to use Windows Media Player 10 ? See the site of Microsoft:

Files invisible to Windows still play, can't delete.

This will format your Sansa c200 player’s internal memory. (and erase all songs therein)
1) Select Settings from the Main Menu.
2) Select Format.
3) Select Yes to format the internal memory or No to cancel.

Sansa c140 says it's full but its not

on the left hand side above the word create playlist, you'll see an eighth note next to the word music. click on the arrow next to the word sansa c140 (if u have one) then click the arrow nest to sansa c140 and click on folder. then open it and you'll see a picture that looks like a stack of cds. click on it ONCE then press the delete key. it will delete allyour songs. then go back to the library and download back the songs you want.

Files invisible to Windows still play, can't delete.

These re the songs that came with the player even if it is brand new, and plus since these artists don't want these to be copied they use a special method to hide them form any OS, hope i helped....
