Re: deleted folders need help to restore!

You will need to call support as they will have to email you the firmware.

Done accept the firmware update, this wont work since you are missing files.

How do I delete files?

The files on your music menu are connected to the folders on your computer. You can't delete the files from your music menu. You have to delete them (or move them) from the folder you took them from.

I suggest that you create a special folder on your computer for only the files you wish to put in coby media manager so that when you get a message like you mentioned you can get the files off your list by moving them back to your normal music folder.

I hope this helps!

I deleted the music folder and nt able to play the songs in mp3

When I had the same accident this is what worked for me. I disconnected my sandisk player from my computer. After waiting until the sandisk software completed it's termination programming, I re-connected it to the computer.

Because I use Microsoft Windows XP, a window pops up asking if I want to open the device in Windows Explorer. Answering "yes" and then selecting the "Folders" from the tabs at the top of the window will display the sandisk along the left column as "Sansa e250". By double clicking on the folder labeled "PPI NAND" a drop down list of subdirectory folders should be displayed. If the folder "MUSIC" is not there, you will need to create a new folder and label it "MUSIC".

Here is how to create a new folder.
With the folder "PPI NAND" highlighted, move the cursor up to the upper right hand corner of the "Windows Explorer" window and select the tab "File". From the drop down menu select " New Folder ". This should cause a folder to appear in the window to the right of the "Sansa e250" window. The new folder should be highlighted and labeled "New Folder". Select the "New Folder" and rename it "MUSIC". When renamed, select the PPI NAND folder and the new folder "Music" should be listed as one of the folder in the subdirectory. If so, you can select it to see if the Music folder contains and music files. If not, you will need to copy or drag your files into the new "MUSIC' folder.

Once I did all of this and disconnected my sandisk player, the player and let the software complete the programming work before shutting it off, it worked fine. My original problem was caused by shutting my sandisk player off after disconnecting it from the computer before the sandisk software completed its work.

Hope this helps.

Cant play

I know this is not what your hoping for but you may not be able to recover the music you deleted.

The only types of folders you can recover which you delete are boot device folders and connection device folders which are hiddn within' your mp3 player fodler anyway's so i doubt you could delete them anway.

You'll probably have to download the music again or if you've got them saved on your computer re-tranfere them.

Hope my advice was helpful, (Sorry I couldn't be that much of assistance.)

Many times, MP3 players will play music from an "Audio" folder. Try naming the folder "Audio".
