When you plug the device into your computer just look at it with the file manager. If you can't see the media files, make certain you have selected in windows "show all files". You need to see the hidden files, including operating files. Be very careful only to delete files that you think are the corrupted media files.
If you are on windows 7 you can look at my blog site which will explain how you can select the options to view all files.
It's under the section about windows media player art problems.

SOURCE: can't delete songs from the e200

I had this same problem with my Sansa e280, I did some research and found that MTP mode is used when syncing with Windows Media Player.  So if you plugged in your player under MTP and simply tried to drag and drop using Windows Explorer the player won't recognize.  I have heard that you should be able to view them on the Sync tab in WMP but I personally have not tried.  

The way I got rid of the songs was by going into my Sansa Settings and changing the USB mode to MSC, opening the Player by going to My Computer, then (if using Windows XP) click on Tools > Folder Options.  Click on the View tab and Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders".  Click "OK" Then Right click on the MUSIC Folder and Select "Properties"  Uncheck "Read Only" and "Hidden".  Unplug your Player and it will restart.  Viola, no more ghosted songs.

I did not get the "Swtich to Recovery mode" screen, my screen was stuck on "Bad Track." I formatted the drive (which deleted EVERYTHING), and then i put the songs back on, and it works just fine. Try this, it might help.

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
connection.
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
e200\...\MUSIC
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.

My sansa wouldn't work


The device needs 6MB free for each GB of music.

Delete about 10 or 15 songs and you should be all set.





Best of Luck.

E200 problem


Where is the music coming from? If you have lots of Bad Tracks errors, the music is usually encoded incorrectly and the device does not know how to decipher it. If the device still connects to the Computer, try to format it. My Computer, Right click on Device name (e200) and select format. I would also update the firmware. It is available from the SanDisk website. http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 Best of Luck.
