I have down loaded a bea to delete other songs -also I have one auto book I am not able to delete


What is a 'bea?'

One way to delete songs (and maybe books) easily is to it through your computer, while the Sansa is tethered;

1) Download the Sansa Clip manual. Here's a link;
http://www.sandisk.com/media/327475/CLIP+_UM_0809_ENG+090309.pdf

2) Put your Sansa in MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode.
Go to Settings, then USB Mode. Select MSC mode.

3) Tether the Sansa to your computer. It will look like a USB flash drive.

4) Delete or add Music, or Books.
You can use Windows Explorer to look through the directories on the Sansa, and delete files directly, as you would on a USB Flash drive.

Special Note on Audio Books--
Get an extra memory card, 4 to 8 Gb should do, and use this as your destination for audio books. If you have a book that will not delete, you can pull the card and re-format it, while leaving your songs intact on the main memory.

If you cannot delete the book through the computer or by menus on the Sansa, you may have to re-format your main memory. Hope that helps!

I got a problem with my mp3


Hello,

Transfers onto the m240 can be done in 2 USB connection modes:
MTP mode: Media Transfer Protocol using software, e.g. Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
MSC mode: Mass Storage Class using Windows Explorer, looking in "My Computer" viewing the player as a removable disk.

Typically, songs put onto the player in MSC mode can not be viewed in MTP mode and the other way around.

Switching to MSC mode in the player's menu:
Look in the player under Settings Menus > USB > select MSC for using the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method for transfers in "My Computer".
When Auto Detect is selected, it depends on the configuration of the computer, what setup for priority has been installed.

Forcing the player into MSC mode:
1. Turn device OFF.
2. Facing the hold switch slide it to the right so an orange color would show putting the device on Hold.
3. Connect the device to the PC.

Information for the USB connection mode and how to make hidden files in XP and Vista visible, on the support site:

I hv sansa clip 1gb - in which i have some songs i.e aprox.850mb and that cannot be seen in my pc in sansa clip as a drive g.how to delete songs and add songs , is there any driver of software or...


1. First, check your device setting up on MTP or MSC? Turn on device, go to "settings" , press down or up to find "USB Mode", you can see the check mark at MTP (auto detect) or MSC mode. Change to another usb mode.
2. You have 2 ways to delete songs:
2.1. Delete songs by device: play songs, press down (sub menu) until you meet "delete song", select it and yes
If you delete all items in device: Settings, Format, and yes
2.2. Delete songs by computer: plug device to computer, double click on device icon, Music folder, and delete songs you want. If you don't see songs in there, unplug the device from pc, and then change USB mode, and plug device to pc to delete.
Good luck

To delete files using the MSC mode, please follow these steps:
1. Open "My Computer" and Open the "Removable Disk" that pertains to the player.
2. Open the folder where you copied the songs, if applicable, and locate the songs that you want to delete.
3. Highlight the songs, press the "Delete" key and click "OK".
Using the MSC mode, you may also delete every file that you have put in the Sansa by formatting it. To format your Sansa, please follow these steps:
1. Open "My Computer" and right click on the "Removable Drive" that pertains to your Sansa.
2. On the drop down list that appears, choose "Format".
3. On the "File System" drop down list, select "FAT" if your Sansa is less than 2GB. Otherwise, select FAT32.
4. Click "Start".

I can't delete the songs and the computer says my mp3 is "full"


You need to be in MSC mode to do deletion in My Computer; put in MSC mode in the settings menu under USB, then plug in, go to My Computer and open it as a drive, go to Music folder and delete by rightclicking on songs and choosing delete. You can also format the player by rightclicking on the drive letter of the sansa and choosing format. If you are deleting from a program like Rhapsody (ugh) or windows media player, you will get a lot of issues and not all will delete. Stick with My Computer in MSC. Also as a side note, make sure you have all file folders showing including hidden files in the tools menu in My Computer

I can't remove songs with WMP


You have to first change the USB mode on the player to MTP (as opposed to MSC). Forget using the Windows Media Player (yeah, I know). Go to Explorer, go to drive E or whatever your Sansa is listed as....open it and it will show different types of folders. Go to MUSIC folder. The songs are listed and you can delete, e.g. delete mp3 and keep WMA of the same song, or whatever else you want to delete.

NoSpaceForDB Please Delete MoreThan4.0MB


hmmm i'm not familiar with the problem but try this.

First open your mp3 player and go to settings. Under the USB menu change it to MSC. Then plug in the mp3 player to the computer. Open the My Computer on your desktop, right click on the Sansa mp3 player and click Format. Make sure Fat32 is checked and Quick format is UNchecked. Then format the mp3 player. After that it should be clean and work just like a USB drive.

Let me know if this helps!
